Unveiling of the Esquel Superyacht *wow factor

The Dubai International Boat Show got off to a striking start on Tuesday as Oceanco unveiled their new project, the Esquel superyacht.

The 345ft (105m) superyacht will be powered by a state-of-the-art compact diesel-electric system and be capable of traveling to the most remote places on the planet, including Antarctica, the North Pole and everywhere in between.

With a cruising range of 7,000 miles and a top speed of 16.5 knots, Esquel will become one of the most advanced expedition vessels in the world. Indeed, she has been designed to carry a land vehicle, motorbikes, two submarines and a helicopter.

Esquel will be able to break ice at the Poles and cruise the Mediterranean

While space has also been made for world-class laboratories, there will be no sacrifice in comforts. She will retain all of the opulent features of the most luxurious yachts currently in service and be just at home cruising the Mediterranean as she will be breaking ice in Patagonia.

The master suite will have an expansive panoramic view of the sea, a lounge area and a fireplace. There will be a fully-equipped spa and wellness area with gym, yoga room, and steam, sauna, plunge pool and hot tub.

Creating a living space for families, Esquel will also provide all the learning materials a child needs — a library filled with real books and state-of-the art technology to provide online connectivity to allow education while at sea.

Renowned stylist Gina Brennan is responsible for the interior designs while Oceanco also collaborated with  Lateral Naval Architects and engineering and yacht expedition travel company Pelorus in the creation of this new and exciting project.
