Prestigious Dutch Shipyard Oceanco reveals their latest project, stunning diesel-electric superyacht ESQUEL
Exclusively revealed at the Dubai International Boat Show last month, all eyes were on Oceanco’s latest project, striking superyacht ESQUEL. A 105m diesel-electric driven vessel, ESQUEL is a sophisticated superyacht with the heart and soul of an intrepid explorer.
Taking her name from a rare Patagonian meteorite, this spectacularly modern yacht perfectly embodies the concept of a shooting star with her metal exterior and beautiful interior. A born voyager, she is designed to navigate the ocean using her state-of-the-art technology systems.
Robust and dependable, ESQUEL has a cruising range of 7000 nautical miles and can reach a top speed of 16.5 knots. Equipped with a Polar class ice-strengthened hull, she is capable of taking on the most extreme environments from the Polar regions to Papua New Guinea and beyond.
Confirming Oceanco’s ongoing commitment to the environment, ESQUEL’s diesel-electric propulsion architecture has been designed to deliver green power in all conditions. An advanced dynamic positioning system allows her to dock in marine-sensitive areas without damaging the ecosystem.
A multi-purpose yacht, ESQUEL’s flexible layout can easily be transformed into a platform for marine biology and ocean conservation. Equipped with laboratories, workshops and tools, she can also be used as a floating classroom whilst cruising far-off regions throughout the world.
Created to explore the globe in absolute comfort, ESQUEL was designed by Oceanco in collaboration with the Timur Bozca Studio, Lateral Naval Architects and expedition company Pelorus. Her chic contemporary country interior was styled by London-based interior stylist Gina Brennan.
Inspired by the sleek lines of modern spacecraft, ESQUEL’s distinctive exterior features clean lines and smooth flowing contours. A bold yacht with a masculine profile, her decks offer extensive outdoor space in addition to storage for her collection of off-road vehicles and motorbikes.
Designed to be a luxurious home-away-from-home in all climates, ESQUEL’s stylish modern interior has spacious living areas with panoramic ocean views. Key features include a cinema/games room plus a glass superstructure with a spa and wellness area including an enclosed pool.
Fully equipped for offshore adventure, she boasts an impressive 232m² garage to house her RIBS, tenders and a large collection of water toys. She can also carry a helicopter and 2 submarines for underwater exploration at the bottom of the ocean.
