Dutch Yachting has shared the photos from Oceanco's facility in Alblasserdam, with the two new yachts moored together.
Y712 sailing yacht hit the water for the first time at the Keppel Verolme shipyard in Rotterdam in September. She is Holland's largest yacht to date as 110m Project Jubilee is currently under construction at Oceanco.
Nuvolari Lenard Design is responsible for both the exterior and interior design and Oceanco & Dykstra Naval Architects for the naval architecture. The three DynaRig masts will power the 2,700 GT full-rigged sailing yacht to more than 20 knots.
As for the Y715, she measures 88.5m and has her exterior designed by Sam Sorgiovanni. With a beam of 14.2m and a draft of 3.9m, the superyacht has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.
It is believed that she will sleep up to 12 guests, as well as a crew of 27, and will have an approximate maximum speed of 19 knots and cruising speed of 16 knots. The superyacht is expected to be delivered at the end of the year.
Four days ago the superyacht has been captured in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands.

Nautor Swan has shared the pictures from the launch of the Swan 108, the first unit of the new generation of Maxi Swan. The yacht is the result of cooperation of German Frers for Naval Architecture, Misa Poggi for Interior Design and Lucio Micheletti, Micheletti + Partners, for exterior styling.Built with a full carbon hull and deck in epoxy Sprint technology from carbon molds, the S/Y will be registered with Rina charter classification. The yacht features the new dual-acting transom door. This simple yet robustly engineered mechanism, is a major “small” revolution. The stern opens along with part of the aft deck to give the customer an oversized beach club. This solution allows to double the space available for this important area of the boat, as well as making the tender management far easier. The beach area does not compromise interior volumes.On deck, the coamings widen in the aft part of the cockpit, allowing a further outboard position for the steering stations while still maintaining good helm protection. The extra-large main companionway provides an incredible light-well for the interior. “The Swan 108 marks a new era in the Swan Maxi range at Nautor” says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO. “The project, launched in 2021 during the Regate di Primavera in Portofino, has been like drawing a beautiful painting. Like a painter meticulously chooses his palette, we made a very intense research of talents that were able to put on the table their know-how and blend it with the other, to create a beautiful and unique product.” At the same time, the Boatbuilding Technology Centre, the House of Swan in Pietarsaari, sees the Swan 88, Swan 108 hull number two and Swan 128 under construction. The maxi yacht will make her worldwide début at Monaco Yacht Show, where the team at Nautor will be delighted to showcase her to guests.Nautor’s Swan was founded in 1966 in Pietarsaari, Finland. The builder entered the superyacht market in 1999. Since then, the yard has continued building high-performance sailing yachts in three different lines; ClubSwan, Swan Yachts and Maxi Swan Yachts.

Renowned British design studio Andy Waugh Yacht Design has introduced an innovative 80-meter catamaran concept named Decadence. Inspired by the technological advancements witnessed in the 1920s automotive and aeronautical industries, the design aims to capture the essence of that era while pushing the boundaries of modern design and engineering.According to the studio, Decadence represents the potential of the SWATH (Small-Waterplane-Area-Twin-Hull) hull form. This distinctive catamaran configuration features submerged cylindrical hulls connected to a central structure by stilts, offering unprecedented aesthetic possibilities yet to be fully explored in the luxury superyacht sector.The futuristic hull design enables notable technical advancements, including an estimated 70% reduction in pitch and roll movements compared to conventional monohull superyachts, ensuring enhanced comfort and safety for passengers.With a generous beam of 30 meters, the 5,000 gross tonnage (GT) vessel offers expansive interior spaces. The owner's suite, spanning 20 meters in width, 30 meters in length, and 3 meters in height, exemplifies the scale and grandeur of Decadence. Each deck will feature fully enclosed exterior areas, providing privacy and protection from inclement weather.The crew quarters and technical areas are intelligently located in the sponsons and outer hulls, maximizing space within the main superstructure for guest accommodations.Recognizing the challenge of finding suitable marina berths due to its oversized beam, the design studio has implemented practical solutions. The inherent stability of the hull form mitigates the need to seek shelter during adverse weather conditions. Additionally, the concept incorporates provisions for two 14-meter chase-boat tenders from Skyline Yachts, serving as transfer shuttles to shore.Renderings of Decadence reveal retractable inflatable sails, suggesting the potential utilization of wind power. Furthermore, the yacht will feature a revolutionary propulsion system expected to reduce energy consumption by approximately 30%.Andy Waugh Yacht Design has gained acclaim for its visionary yacht concepts, including the 70-meter Serafina, 175-meter Acionna, 45-meter Revolution, and 90-meter Nouveau.
