Oceanco’s sales director talks to Daily Nautica: “This is how the Black Pearl, a 107-metre sailing yacht, was created”
- 16 March 2022
The megayacht Dar in Genova. The “shark”, the inspiration for this vessel, has returned under the Lantern a few months from its last visit at the Magazzini del Cotone in October 2020. Now, Dar, a beautiful 90M Oceanco, built by the Dutch shipyard, Oceanco, is docked at Nuova Darsena at the Fiera del Mare.
This huge and captivating vessel (90 metres long and nearly 15 wide) does not go unnoticed. So much so that the super yacht designed by Luiz De Basto won the “World Superyacht Award 2019” for best motoryacht in 2019.
De Basto took inspiration from the shark to create its flowing exterior. This is the first impression of an outside observer, who can only limit themselves to admiring the exterior, seeing as it has been designed to guarantee complete privacy and relaxation for the owner and passengers. It can welcome up to 14 passengers in 7 cabins. Caring for them is a crew made up of 31 people.
In addition to a zero speed stabiliser, there is also a barbecue, lift, spa, pool, heliport, sauna and a large garage for the tender. Dar is estimated to be worth 170 million euros.
