Welcome to the dock of your dreams
Every yacht starts with a vision, the OWNER’S VISION. About how the yacht looks and how it feels. But THE PERFECT YACHT can only be the perfect yacht when it is the owner's perfect yacht. When it touches the lives of those who come onboard in exactly the way the owner intended.
Some things, it seems, cannot be done, perhaps, because they’ve never been done before. Finding solutions requires an OPEN MIND, a focused mind. This is how we build not just the perfect yacht, but the owner's perfect yacht. Only when we achieve this can we say BUILT BY OCEANCO.
Oceanco is a world-class builder of custom superyachts in the 80–140 meters range. In a relatively short period of time Oceanco has become one of today’s leading brand names in superyachts. We firmly believe this success is a result of our open-minded and dedicated approach. We follow market trends closely and listen carefully to whatever it is you expect from your unique yacht before we start creating and building. From the very first sketch until the launching we take every step in close consultation with you.
The 106.7m (350ft) three-masted sailing yacht Black Pearl is unlike any yacht the world has ever seen. This unique and complex vessel is the realization of a discerning Owner’s vision. She is the result of an elaborate and successful collaboration on the part of an international group of designers, engineers, naval architects, builders, and project managers.
The designers Ken Freivokh Design, Nuvolari Lenard and Villate Design all played a significant role in Black Pearl’s design evolution. Dykstra Naval Architects designed Black Pearl’s three 70 meter (230ft) DynaRig carbon masts and sailing system. The sail area is subdivided into smaller lesser-loaded sails and they can be set or furled by pushing a button. Astonishingly, all 2,900 square meter of sails can be set in 7 minutes.
BMT, Nigel Gee collaborated with Oceanco to create Black Pearl’s hybrid propulsion system as well as other onboard systems such as waste heat recovery.
Since her launch, Black Pearl has proven to be a new generation landmark sailing yacht with a unique identity. Not only is she the largest sailing yacht in the world, but her unique features such as the state of the art DynaRig system, single level engine room, a hybrid propulsion installation and regeneration mode when under sail – she is set to turn heads the world over - and for decades to come.
