Oceanco Yachts

Oceanco is a leading Super Yacht Builder. Based in the Netherlands, they have built some of the world’s most amazing superyachts, including Alfa Nero, Black Pearl, Dar and Jubilee.

Oceanco Yachts

Oceanco is considered to be one of the most exclusive superyacht builders in the world. They have built some masterpieces as Jubilee, Black Pearl and Barbara.

Oceanco logoOceanco delivers top Dutch quality products with efficient production facilities. Oceanco works together with designers such as Terence Disdale, Nuvolari-Lenard, Espen Øino, Sam Sorgiovanni, Igor Lobanov, Tim Heywood and Andrew Winch.


Oceanco was founded in 1987 by Richard Hein and some private investors based in South Africa. The company started building hulls and superstructures in Durban, South Africa. The hulls were transported to the Netherlands, where the yachts were finished.

One of the first large yachts built by Oceanco is Al Mirqab, until recently known as Indian Empress and now named NEOM. Other large yachta from the first years are the sister-ships Constellation and Stargate, built as identical yachts in an order for the Royal Family of Qatar.

Constellation was built for Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the former Emir of Qatar, while Stargate was built for his half-brother Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani

In 2002 Oceanco was bought by Greek shipping tycoon Theodore Angelopoulos (he was also the original owner of the yacht Alfa Nero).

Under guidance of Angelopoulos, Oceanco started focusing on 80 meter + yachts, built in a semi-custom series.  Examples are Amevi, Alfa Nero, Vibrant Curiousity and Seven Seas.

In 2010 Mohammed al Barwani, a billionaire based in Oman and active in the oil and gas industy, bought Oceanco.

Al Barwani als owns the Turkish yacht builder Turquoise. Under management of Al Barwani the focues went more to custom build projects, with examples as Barbara, Infinity and recently Jubilee and Bravo Eugenia.

Oceanco has around 200 employees.

Mohammed Al Barwani

Mohamed bin Ali bin Mohamed Al Barwani is an Omani billionaire businessman, and founder of MB Holding, active in oil and gas exploration and production, oilfield services, engineering and mining.  

His net worth was once estimated at US$ 1.2 billion.

Notable Yachts

Notable yachts built by Oceanco are Jubilee (one of the biggest yachts built in the Netherlands), Indian Empress, Dar and the sailing yacht Black Pearl.

Current Order Portfolio

We think Oceanco has seven projects under construction (including Bravo Eugenia). Most projects start on speculation as ‘investment projects’.

Oceanco recently sold two new projects: one in the 2nd half of 2017 and one early 2018. Not much is known about these projects.

We are aware of the following projects:

Y716 - 90 meter - delivery in 2019 - Project Yasmin

Y718 - 109 meter - delivery in 2019 - named Bravo Eugenia

Y719  - 117 meter  delivery in 2020 - Project Acquaintance

Y720 - 109 meter - delivery in 2021 - Possibly the new Seven Seas.

Y721 - 125 meter - delivery in 2021

Y722 - n/a

Y723 - n/a
