Danish builder Oceanco unveiled their superyacht project, the 120 meter yacht AMARA, at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS).
As part of the yard’s continuing effort to push the boundaries of design, Oceanco yacht AMARA showcases the builder’s new “lifestyle philosophy” concept which places great emphasis on a family oriented style of living. Sam Sorgiovanni, the yacht’s designer, describes the resort-style concept of the project: “…the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.”
Our quick review of the yacht’s initial technical specs discovered an interior with a contemporary style – with natural tones and light woods, designed to embrace the ‘resort’ lifestyle. Plenty of wide open spaces and natural light lend to the relaxed atmosphere.
Onboard amenities include:
With a solid reputation for building luxury yacht charter superyachts such as 56 meter The WELLESLEY, and the massive 95 meter Oceanco yacht INDIAN EMPRESS, we’re already licking our chops to be the first to offer the 120 meter motor yacht AMARA to our clients.
According to our company president, Jana Sheeder, we may have to wait a while.
“As we are seeing with the 70 meter Heesen yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA, also a new concept in resort-style yachts, I believe yacht AMARA will enjoy extensive private use by her owner prior to becoming available for charter. The good news is that we continue to witness growth in the experiential travel sector, especially with an emphasis on wellness yacht charter vacations. The demand for superyachts with resort facilities such as spas and beauty salons is strong, and the eventual owner of AMARA will be in a solid position to capitalize on this growing business trend.”

Oceanco Unveils Amara – A 120-Meter ‘Resort’ Yacht
ALBLASSERDAM, The Netherlands, February 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
Amara, Oceanco’s newly designed and engineered 120-meter private yacht concept, designed in collaboration with Sam Sorgiovanni Designs was unveiled by His Excellency Saeed Harib, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, Vice President and Chairman of Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi, and Senior Advisor to the Dubai International Boat Show.
Oceanco revealed the lifestyle philosophy of creating a yacht designed for extended families and friends. Amara provides unparalleled living and entertainment facilities for up to 20 guests. The contemporary interior with natural timber, stone and textural carpets and fabrics blend to create an inviting and natural environment.
“In designing the exterior lines of Amara, I wanted to portray a very strong and muscular form that was progressive in design but with a timeless appeal,” says Sorgiovanni. Its long bow accentuates the vessel’s generous proportions. Most importantly, the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.
The lower level deck opens up to reveal an expansive beach club resort that offers 3-way access to the sea; port starboard and aft. Also on this deck is a comprehensive wellness area with banya, hammam, beauty treatment lounge and a cinema experience for 16 persons.
A waterfall from the upper deck cascades down into the main deck swimming pool. And the main deck is party central, featuring a stunning pool bar, opening balconies and large entertainment areas.
The upper deck has an outstanding owner’s apartment with a private plunge pool and open-air aft deck dining for 20+ people.
The gym with a capital view is located on the bridge deck. For intimate gatherings there are two Majilis-style areas (meaning, “a place of sitting” in Arabic, per Wikipedia) aboard. In addition to the cinema on the lower deck, there is a quixotic cabana style open-air cinema on the sun deck. For young guests and those young at heart, there are accommodations for fun sports equipment such as a climbing wall and water slides.
Amara reflects Oceanco’s applied evolutionary thinking, allowing clients to shape their way of life onboard. Amara will take you from the crystal waters of the Maldives to the iconic Caribbean islands, from the ancient marvels of the Mediterranean to the golden sands of Sri Lanka, in privacy, safety, and tranquility.
