Savouring raw herring with a glass of good Dutch beer – this is nirvana for the Dutch! Superyacht NIRVANA (Y707), recently launched by OCEANCO shipyard, is a 88.50-metre vessel that received a real Dutch send off on the April 18th. Following her formal launch party, the crew of the motor yacht Nirvana were invited to an intimate farewell party where they could participate in the famous raw herring ritual.

The Owner’s representatives, the Captain and his crew together with the Oceanco team gathered alongside NIRVANA yacht to celebrate the culmination of many months of intense and professional cooperation among all involved. During the festivities, the Oceanco team thanked the Owner’s representatives and the crew for their outstanding teamwork. Captain Brett Fillis, for his part, warmly repaid the compliment to everyone who had been involved in this great venture, offering special commendation to his crew for the fantastic job they did in receiving the yacht and getting her ready for sail in a very short time span.

Motor yacht NIRVANA is currently cruising in the Mediterranean where she will remain for her first summer season. We look forward to sharing more news about NIRVANA with you soon.
