Oceanco's 107-metre Stiletto superyacht concept features hybrid propulsion, an enclosed pool and waterfall area, a vast beach club aft and a dramatic central lift/spiral staircase.
Oceanco’s 107-metre Stiletto superyacht concept exhibits all the exuberance and innovation we’ve come to expect from designer Ken Freivokh. The huge beach club and gym area aft, supplemented by folding terraces, a bar and a pool, makes the most of the yacht’s 15.3-metre beam, but the real surprise is forward, where the outside-inside theme is continued in a recessed deck area under a louvred canopy. A swimming pool is the focus, and into it cascades a waterfall feature from the foredeck. The deck area beyond this serves as a helipad. “The external deck spaces are about creating choices for guests. It’s a big yacht that suits big parties, and different groups have different needs. So often, the forward deck space is a barren utility area but I wanted to fashion something more interesting,” says Ken Freivokh.
The yacht, which in concept form takes 18 guests and 30 crew, is equally startling inside, with a two-storey main salon. A lower central area offers six metres of headroom, while the mezzanine level offers panoramic views. Another key feature is the central glass lift and spiral staircase, benefiting from a big skylight.
“Stiletto embodies a lot of thoughts I have had about bigger superyachts. More space doesn’t just mean more salons, and it can get very repetitive. That is why I wanted a single main salon and made a virtue of the volumes available and the big windows. It becomes an exciting and special space,” says Ken.
The yacht’s twin 1,440kW MTUs are supplemented by electric motors that allow for hybrid operation. While reducing harmful emissions and making the most of the energy available on board, it allows opens up the possibility of silent operation. Oceanco’s naval architects, along with BMT, have produced a slender, low-resistance hull that slices through the waves.
