182.9m/600ft mega yacht REV OCEAN was launched at the VARD shipyard in Romania in August and has cruised through the Mediterranean to reach Norway for outfitting. Once delivered in 2021, she will become available for private yacht charters.
The Norwegian facilities will install her technical and navigational equipment over the next six months before she is transported to the Lord Werft in Bremerhaven, Germany, for final outfitting before her 2021 delivery.
M/Y REV OCEAN was designed by Espen Oeino with interiors from H2 Yacht Design and once completed she will be the world’s largest superyacht and will conduct research operations into the maritime environment, including the effects of plastic pollution, high atmospheric levels of CO2 and unsustainable fishing practices. She will have accommodation for 55 scientists and 35 crew members. Alternatively, she can sleep up to 36 guests and 54 crew for luxury cruises.
On board equipment will include scientific trawls, a Triton submarine that can dive 2,300m/7545.9ft, an ROV with a 6,000m/19,685ft depth capacity, advanced communication equipment, sonar systems, laboratories, an auditorium and a moon pool.
