Danish builder Oceanco unveiled their superyacht project. She is the 120 meter yacht AMARA. In specific, she debuted at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS).
The yard continues to push the boundaries of design. Oceanco yacht AMARA showcases the builder’s new “lifestyle philosophy” concept. She places great emphasis on a family-oriented style of living. Sam Sorgiovanni, the yacht’s designer, describes the resort-style concept of the project. Besides this, Mr. Sorgiovanni says, “…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 discovers an interior with a contemporary style. She has natural tones and light woods. Her design is to embrace the ‘resort’ lifestyle. Plenty of wide open spaces and natural light lend to the relaxed atmosphere. She is an amazing superyacht project.
Amara features many onboard amenties. For instance, 2 theatres, 2 Majilis-style areas (Majilis means “a place of sitting” in Arabic), and a climbing wall. In addition, she has an upper deck waterfall that flows into the main deck swimming pool. There is a wellness areas on the lower deck, including Hammam steam bath and a beauty salon. This gorgeous yacht also has a water slide and a circular relaxation pod that suspends over the water. How unique is she!
Oceanco has a solid reputation for building luxury yacht charter superyachts. For example, 56 meter The WELLESLEY and the massive 95 meter Oceanco yacht INDIAN EMPRESS are in their fleet. Briefly, we lick our chops to be the first to offer this. Motoryacht AMARA promises to be popular for 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.”
Here’s the Danish builder’s press release via PRNewswire:
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, there is a quixotic cabana style open-air cinema on the sun deck. There is something special for young guests and those young at heart. Specifically, there are accommodations for fun sports equipment. These include 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.

The world’s largest yachts continue to grow larger and larger each year. The ideas of superyacht owners as to what features and amenities will make their, “floating villas” stand out from the crowd also expand. This demand for over-the-top luxury pushes high-profile yacht designers to continually “reinvent” the ultimate onboard amenities.
No longer is an ondeck Jacuzzi style spa satisfactory. Now, the hot tub must double as a wave-generating swimming pool. That pool needs a backlit waterfall cascading over the edge of the spa into a smaller reflection pool. Along a similar innovation path, our company President, Jana Sheeder, recently toured a new build megayacht with designer Evan Marshall. The Marshall-designed yacht features a sundeck with a sunken-floor lounge area. This area can be flooded with several inches of water, to create a faux beach atmosphere. The legs of the chaise lounges sit in the cool water! Talk about relaxation!
Company President, Jana Sheeder, and our charter team return from the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. Many manufacturers and designers display their latest innovations and concepts there. In addition, our Team takes notes of the latest trends that are becoming more popular with superyacht owners and designers. Here are the top three amenity design trends seen for 2018.
Sundeck bars are larger now. Previously, their smaller size made room for the storage of watertoys on deck. As more yachts keep the tenders and toys in garages, the ability to expand ondeck amenities has seen an increase. This increase results in large outdoor wetbars, built with luxurious stones, polished finishes, and mood lighting. The bars are focal points ondeck. They are places where families and friends gather for extended periods. These areas are perfect for socializing and enjoying the fresh air and sea views.
One of the most magnificent outdoor bars is located on the sundeck of Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE. The large curved bar is positioned to the port side and boasts an opaque lighting design that creates a glamorous evening hang-out. This 85 meter Lürssen superyacht was designed by Espen Øeino and has many other notable design features, including a spectacular superyacht fireplace.
Fun, unusable rooms are popular on the largest superyachts. Amenities from superyacht gyms and spas, to cinemas and nightclubs. These designs around the owner’s passions and what they think will appeal to yacht charter guests. Designer Tim Heywood reflects on the trend:
“Lifestyle-specific rooms — from casinos to underwater viewing rooms to other ideas such as snow rooms, meditation spaces, art galleries or anything designed to meet an owner’s particular needs — have all featured in my designs. In fact, our first cryotherapy room is in production, and it won’t be the last.”
Interior designers Redman Whiteley Dixon created an amazing wellness area onboard the 63 meter Feadship motor yacht LADY BRITT. The standout room in this area is the Finnish sauna. It opens on to the ocean. #Namaste … Charter guests can heat up, then take a plunge in the cool ocean. The wellness area features space for massage and hairdressing. In addition, the gym’s panoramic sliding glass doors open to the large spa pool on the sundeck.
More designers now relegate tenders and watertoys to side-opening garages on superyachts. Prime aft areas that once housed these items are being redesigned with hydraulic balconies and decks to serve as open–air beach clubs. First generation beach clubs are little more than extended swim platforms with tender garages. These are emptied of their contents to make room for a lounge chair or two. Newer designs offer bars, lounges, and spa access points. The best of the new generation clubs serve as all-round waterfront entertaining venues.
Rarely do you find beach clubs on sailboats, yet sail yacht AQUIJO is anything but an ordinary sailboat. The editors of Boat International magazine described her club area.
“As the world’s largest ketch, she has more than enough room to accommodate a spacious beach club, complete with a hammam [turkish steam bath], sauna and a spectacular spa pool that is illuminated by a large skylight. As if all that wasn’t impressive enough, the watertight aft doors mean that (sail yacht) Aquijo’s beach club can still be used when she’s sailing along at her brisk top speed of 20 knots.” Amazing…
Incredible jacuzzis and beach clubs abound on the world’s newest superyachts. Enjoy reading about yet another spectacular yacht, King Baby, at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/yacht-maven-scores-first-charter-on-yacht-king-baby-edgy-rock-n-roll-themed-superyacht/
