Y722 is designed by Oceanco and Espen Øino International, with interiors from Mark Berryman Design. The project is a collaboration among Oceanco, YTMC and Y.CO. Oceanco says the vessel “embraces innovative technologies and has had some radical layout changes introduced that will challenge the perception of the traditional yacht.”
Accommodations are for 22 guests, with quarters for 33 crew. The owner has what Oceanco calls “scientific aspirations,” and the guest and crew quarters are somewhat combined, including the crew mess and dining room. The idea is to “create synergy between all those on board and encourage the mutual cultivation of ideas and passions.” The yacht will also have crew wellbeing areas, such as a gym.
Eco-friendly thinking has been part of the design process. Power will be diesel-electric for emissions-free, silent running. A waste heat recovery system and an advanced wastewater treatment system are also part of the build.
“Y722 will break new boundaries at Oceanco, with, amongst other things, her industry-leading noise and vibration characteristics, and the focus on usability and operability will bring a holistic comfortable experience for all aboard,” Dan Morgan, YTMC managing director, stated in a press release.
Charlie Birkett, CEO and co-founder of Y.CO, called Y722 a groundbreaking yacht: “This is a project with vast scope and vital ambition.”
When is Y722 expected to undergo sea trials and commissioning? In 2025.
