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 Young Designer of the Year Award is back with a new challenge and new prizes for an exciting young generation of designers. This highly regarded award, sponsored by long time partner Oceanco, celebrates the original concepts of student and trainee designers from around the globe by tasking them with a realistic client request to challenge their ideas, technical ability and aptitude for delivery. The brief is set to provide valuable and authentic insight into the reality of working as a designer within the superyacht industry.
This year’s entrants are tasked with designing a Sail-Assisted Motor Yacht. As the industry becomes more mindful of the effect mankind is having on our planet, it seems fitting that the task should encourage young designers to think about their green footprint as we move towards a more environmentally-friendly future.
The winners will be awarded at the Boat International Design and Innovation Awards, which takes place at the end of January 2019 during the Superyacht Design Symposium. The winning designs will be displayed in front of an international audience of superyacht owners, designers and industry leaders. Click here to see last year's winners at the event.
The winner of the Young Designer of the Year Award title will receive €3,000 cash prize money and a three-month paid internship with partners Oceanco.
All finalists, chosen by a judging panel drawn from the ranks of the most highly regarded naval architects and yacht designers, are invited to attend the awards and will benefit from a host of incredible opportunities aimed at advancing their early design careers. They will receive complimentary access to the 2019 edition of the Superyacht Design Symposium and an all expenses paid visit to the Oceanco shipyard in Holland.
The Annual Young Designers Getaway will also return next year for those entrants who submit material. The event jointly organised by Oceanco, Bolidt and Esthec, creates a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere for the next generation of superyacht designers to freely share ideas with their peers and industry experts alike. Click here to see the highlights from last year's trip.
The Creative Breakfast held during the Monaco Yacht Show is open to all those who enter the competition. The event introduces young designers to some of the biggest names in the business, before treating them to an exclusive boat trip to take a closer look at some of the most impressive yachts anchored off Monaco.
Entries close on Thursday 8 November 2018 and you must be 28 years old or less on the 1 January 2019 to enter. Full T&C's are available online.
