From Oceanco comes new 105m/345ft concept expedition yacht ESQUEL, featuring the naval architecture and engineering of Lateral Naval Architects for go-anywhere cruising from the Arctic to the Antarctic. This inspiring mega yacht concept was just released at the current Dubai International Boat Show and boasts exterior design from Timur Bozca, who described the design as inspired by a rocket ship and created to embody simplicity and strength. The interiors are the work of Gina Brennan, who incorporates the stories of antique pieces into beautiful contemporary living spaces.
The exterior design features a large helipad to the aft and a massive main deck lounge amidships furnished with armchairs and drinks tables along the starboard side, a drinks table with seats for four, and two chaise-loungers with drinks tables are placed close to the upper deck overhang for shade or sunlight depending on the time of the day. To the aft, the enclosed area conceals a beautiful pool and wellness area.
The upper deck features plush circular seating each covered by a sun umbrella and a nearby bar to provide refreshments. The sundeck above has a generous Jacuzzi along the stern with sunpads to either side. Sun loungers and two drinks tables surrounded by four comfortable chairs complete the setting.
The beautiful interiors use a calming pastel colour scheme with rosy tints in the pale wooden panelling on the ceiling and in the furnishings. Stone grey tones and whites further contrast against the pale blues and golden yellows.
Among the rooms, there is a gorgeous salon fitted with a massive bar, chaise-lounge, plush sofa and armchairs around a central fireplace. The formal dining room provides for up to 20 guests at a grand natural table, with a fireplace opposite dividing the space for two lounges: A smaller seating area for more intimate conversation and an area fitted with sofas and armchairs for group relaxation while taking in the views through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Onboard amenities include a spa wellness centre featuring a steam room and sauna, plunge pool and hot tub, and a yoga room and gym. In addition, there is a room convertible to a cinema or games room.
Megayacht ESQUEL is designed to be fitted with diesel-electric engines and is capable of a top speed of 16.5 knots and an exhaustive range of 7,000 nautical miles.
