Jubilee is a 110m luxury yacht, built by Oceanco, which specializes in building custom superyachts from aluminum and steel and delivered in 2017.

Her owner from a Middle Eastern royal family invited Sorgiovanni Designs to work with the shipyard on the interior.From overhead, the superyacht looks like a contour map of an island, with each deck appearing at different heights above sea level.“The 3-D modeling was quite a challenging task, which pleased my mathematical part of the brain,” Lobanov says. “Each of the layers meets and splits under certain rules, which can be noticed from different angles.”No wonder, Jubilee has achieved numerous awards, including being Yachts International’s editors’ pick as the best exterior styling in 2017.The motor yacht can accommodate 31 guests in 16 cabins with 39 crew members. Four VIP cabins are found on the bridge deck, while there are a further 10 guest suites on the main deck.
