Back in 2009, when motor yacht SEALYON was first launched (her name at the time was yacht CANDYSCAPE II), we remember saying, “This yacht has, ‘it’“ – that exceptional fusion of glamour, design, and quality. As it turned out, we were not alone in our praise of the Espen Øino-designed superyacht, built by Italy’s Viareggio Super Yachts. Right out of the gate, the yacht scored a 2010 World Superyacht Award as the Best Displacement Motor Yacht, 500GT-1,299GT.
Interior Design As Sweet As Candy
That recognition was followed up in 2011 with a win at the International Yacht Awards in the category of “Power Yachts over 60 metres” for her outstanding interior design by Candy & Candy of London. One judge referred to the interior as, “An eclectic collection of detailed decoration using veneers, fabrics, leathers, metals and stones to create a truly unique floating wonder.”
Every Picture Tells A Story
Fast-forward to 2018, and the 202ft super yacht SEALYON, ex Candyscape II is still as impressive as the day she was first launched. T. Debuse, who oversees the yacht charter management for the vessel’s owner says, “(charter yacht) SEALYON is undoubtedly a yacht that has fulfilled its mission statement with the highest build quality and superbly comfortable, beautifully decorated and detailed interior.” DeBuse also thinks the yacht’s new video captures the splendor of the yacht. “They say a picture paints a 1000 words – the video of Sealyon paints a picture indeed!”

As every real estate agent knows – if you can’t get prospective buyers to “love” the exterior of a house, your probably won’t convince them to take a look inside. That initial “wow” factor, known as “Curb Appeal” is critical in enticing buyers to explore, and appreciate, the entire property, inside and out.
Øino (sometimes written as Espen Oeino) has created some of the modern legends in the charter marketplace, including Lürssen yacht charter vessels 78m yacht TV (ex-MadSummer), 70m yacht MARTHA ANN, and 60m yacht SOLEMATES.
The prolific designer began his career at the Martin Francis Design Studio, where he became project manager of the legendary Eco project, now known as the iconic ENIGMA.
In 1994, after eight years working as a consulting engineer and naval architect for Martin Francis, Espen set up his own design company: Espen Øino International (EOI). The Monaco-based studio is today one of the leading designers of large custom yachts.
Espen and his team of naval architects have a client base stretching from Asia and the Far East to the USA and Central America. Recent projects to splash down are Viareggio Superyachts vessels 62m yacht CANDYSCAPE II and 62m yacht RoMa.
Current projects from the man described as “creator of some of the world’s most famous and outstanding yachts” include several high-profile Lürssen vessels, as well as two very large yachts under construction at the Fincantieri Yard in La Spezia, Italy.
Mediterranean yacht charter fans may not know Espen’s name, but chances are the yacht that first caught their eye for its elegant lines was designed by this industry icon.
