Oceanco is Building a Stealth Yacht for the Ultra-secretive Ultra Rich

If there is one thing that those who can afford to buy a superyacht want more of, its privacy! It’s hard to avoid gawkers and paparazzi when you are cruising by in a 200 foot luxury motor yacht; but that is exactly what one of the latest yacht’s being built by Oceanco, is attempting to do.

The aptly named “superyacht project SHY,” a collaboration between Oceanco and Lobanov Design, is being created with specific design elements to “provide extra layers of privacy.”

The yacht is so good at keeping secrets, that on Lobanov’s project page it is marked “CONFIDENTIAL.” But, a concept picture released so far, shows a unique ribbon-like exterior that confounds prying eyes.

Speaking to the press, designer Igor Lobanov said, “That’s how we see the way to express a feeling of privacy from the outside which doesn’t compromise panoramic views from inside … lightweight and translucent. Yacht SHY will keep your secrets.”

The yacht which is over 300 feet in length is nearing completion, and should be launched before the end of the year.

Lobanov is well-known for his futuristic and high concept yacht design projects.

Lobanov says he relied on his knowledge of science to give inspiration, but he also found inspiration in natural forms to find a rhythm and poise in the structures. “Once again we see design brilliance when science and nature work together, when pragmatism enables splendor, form and function.”

There is not too much else known about this “super secretive” super yacht, but, a glass elevator, and a 500 sq. foot swimming pool on the main aft deck, are listed as “interesting features” on Oceanco’s website, where she is known as “hull Y714.”
