The New Oceanco Amara Superyacht Is a Floating Resort

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 2, 2017

The world’s newest superyacht concept is something rather special.

Oceanco has released the designs for its new “Amara” 394-foot private yacht, and it’s basically a floating resort.

The design was released at the Dubai International Boat Show.

“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 designer Sam Sorgiovanni. “Its long bow accentuates the vessel’s generous proportions.”

The yacht has living and entertainment facilities for up to 20 guests, with an interior with natural timber, stone and textural carpets and fabrics.

The yacht’s lower level deck opens to reveal an “expansive” beach club resort, offering access to the sea; port starboard and aft.

The yacht even has a “wellness” area with its own banya, hammam, beauty treatment lounge and even a 16-person cinema.

The upper deck boasts a waterfall that cascades down into the main deck’s swimming pool; it’s also home to an owner’s apartment with a private plunge pool and open-air aft deck dining for more than 20 people.
