The REV 181,6 meter Yacht by Vard shipyard

Delivery in 2020, the 181.6-meter yacht, set to be the world’s largest, will be built by Norwegian shipyard, Vard, topping Azzam’s length by almost 2 meters.
Vard that will be designed by Espen Oeino. Set to be used for environmental research missions in partnership with WWF Norway, the vessel will also be used privately by its owner and will be available for charters.
Tailored for research and expedition activities to tackle the ocean’s environmental challenges, the Research Expedition Vessel (REV) was designed to cruise in arctic and tropical areas alike. At near 182-meters in length, the REV will also become the largest vessel in the world available for private charters for up to 36 guests.
“The REV will be a platform for gathering knowledge”, explained Kjell Inge Røkke, “I would like to welcome researchers, environmental groups, and other institutions on board to acquire new skills to evolve innovative solutions to address challenges and opportunities connected to the seas”.
Operated for scientific excursions in tandem with WWF Norway, the Research Expedition Vessel should also be made available for charters of up to 36 guests to help fund more scientific work. Vard was chosen for the build as Mr Røkke’s first large trawler came from the shipyard, from which continued a 30-year long working relationship between the two.

The ground-breaking expedition yacht REV is due to be launched from Norwegian shipyard Vard in 2020. At an enormous 182 metres and with a gross tonnage (GT) of 16,000GT, she is expected to secure the title of the world’s largest yacht, both in terms of length and volume.

Built for environmental research missions in partnership with WWF Norway, the Research Expedition Vessel (REV) will also be available for charter for recreational purposes and expeditions, and will become the largest vessel in the world available for charter for up to 36 guests. The result of collaboration, discussions and input from technologists, scientists and environmentalists, she offers the ultimate in expedition yacht charters on a scale not previously seen by the industry.

EXTERIOR DESIGN

Designed by yachting great Espen Oeino, REV is tailored for research and expedition activities to tackle the ocean’s environmental challenges. Her robust exterior lines and state-of-the-art features ensure she is able to cruise in arctic and tropical areas alike, with a hull built to ICE PC6 for navigation in ice-infested waters. Two helipads can host drones and helicopter surveys, while overhead cranes can lift and launch equipment weighing up to 20T over the side. Her drop keels enable echo sounders and sonars to be placed in undisturbed water below the hull for research of the world’s eco-systems, and built into her stern is a trawl hangar and pelagic trawling system.

INTERIOR DESIGN

REV is anticipated to feature all the attention-to-detail, high quality interior design and five-star facilities found on only the very best superyachts in the global charter fleet. With such huge volume, she is expected to boast a wealth of multi-functional guest areas designed for relaxation, entertainment and socialising. No matter whether charterers wish to spend time with family or host larger numbers, there will be many options for lounging, enjoying drinks and dining, which spread out onto the luxe deck areas. A green philosophy will also be embedded throughout, with the latest LED lighting systems installed to reduce power consumption

ACCOMMODATION

Expedition yacht REV will be able to sleep up to 36 guests in 18 sophisticated staterooms. She is also capable of carrying up to 54 crew members on board on a private charter vacation. On charter expeditions, however, she is able to carry 36 guests, 30 crew members and 24 scientists. Due to her design, there will be enough stories for 90 persons for 114 days, with extra storage in on-deck reefer containers if longer trips are made.

LEISURE & ENTERTAINMENT

Built to the highest standards for both expeditions and recreational purposes, REV will be equipped with all the state-of-the-art leisure and entertainment systems expected from a yacht of her scale and class. Facilities will ensure the 36 charter guests on board are kept entertained for hours when on a private charter vacation.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Created for research and expeditions, REV is fitted out with a whole host of special features to fulfil her function to the highest standards. High-tech equipment will be able to monitor and survey marine areas, currents, the seabed, fish and plant life, while cutting-edge laboratory facilities enable on-board analysis. There will be an auditorium for lectures and debates, and the capacity for live streaming, as well as a Moonpool, an eco-harvesting system for live catch and release of biomass and pelagic samples, and an underwater hydrophone system for listening to ocean mammals. Plus, diesel electric, she will be teaming with innovative eco-credentials, such as a VARD SeaQ ‘Green Pilot’ system for monitoring emissions, facilities that prevent underwater noise pollution and a high-tech incinerator system.

PERFORMANCE

REV will have a beam of 22 metres and will reach a maximum speed of 17 knots with its sonar working at speed of up to 11 knots and its biomass sampling system at speeds of up to two knots. She will have a range of 21,120 nautical miles at 11 knots and will have up to 114 days full autonomy with a complement of 90 passengers in terms of storage. A dynamic positioning system ensures REV maintains her position at anchor without damaging coral reefs and other marine eco-systems.
