DAR 90m Private Yacht by Oceanco
The 295.28ft Oceanco 90 motor yacht motor yacht ‘Dar’ was built by Oceanco in Netherlands at their Alblasserdam shipyard , she was delivered to her owner in 2018. Previously named Oceanco Y717, her luxurious interior was designed by Nuvolari & Lenard.
Dar’s interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests overnight in 6 cabins, comprising a master suite, She is also capable of carrying up to 31 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
CONSTRUCTION & DIMENSIONS
Dar features a displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure, with teak decks.
This luxury yacht is also fitted with ‘zero speed stabilizers’ which work at anchor, increasing on-board comfort when the yacht is stationary, particularly in rough waters.
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure to Lloyd’s standards and fitted with twin 4,828hp MTU 20V4000 M73L engines, this four-deck displacement yacht features interiors by Nuvolari Lenard and exterior styling by Miami-based designer Luiz de Basto — a first for the yard.
Accommodation on board Project Shark is for up to 12 guests split across six cabins including an upper deck owner’s suite complete with a private terrace that faces over the bow and includes a superyacht spa pool.
The key communal area is the main deck saloon, which will boast stunning views out to sea through 2.3 metre tall windows, while the bridge deck swimming pool will be flanked by sunpads and fed by a cascade of waterfalls starting on the upper deck.
It is understood that the uppermost deck will be used as a private superyacht helipad, while other star features include a dive centre, hammam, sauna and submarine storage as part of a sprawling beach club.
Meanwhile, two superyacht elevators have been installed on board — one for guests, surrounded by a spiral staircase, and a second that allows for discreet service from the 31-person crew quarters.
Project Shark is due for completion and delivery this summer
Speaking to Boat International, De Basto described his largest design to date as “a beauty”, before adding that he can’t wait to see the “monolithic glass” in person.
“We called it Project Shark because you get the hammerhead shape from the front and we made the mast look like a fin as well,” he explained. “There are a few differences from the concept in accordance with the owner’s wishes. We were able to adapt without too much trouble. The addition of the helipad was the main difference. We also isolated the aft deck for privacy, so the main deck is the only walkaround.”
De Basto’s design concept dates back to 2011
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include the 109 metre Project Y718, aka Project Bravo, a Nuvolari Lenard design that is also due for delivery this year.

Luiz de Basto envisaged a superstructure almost entirely clad with glass; builder Oceanco rose to the inherent challenges. The yacht required 186 frameless glass panels spread over several decks, all of identical width but many curved and including doors and seamlessly abutting painted surfaces.
