Yacht highlights:
  • The Esquel was designed for that 80 percent of Ocean that don’t often see yachts:  sporting a displacement hull with a plumb bow, she has been designed for extensive cruising to remote regions extending from the North Pole to the South Pole and everywhere in between.
  • Marine biologists, scientists — researchers from any number of fields can utilise Esquel as a roving platform for new discoveries.
  • You have all you need to operate your business on-the-go:  the Esquel  is as wired and plugged in as your office is in Palo Alto, London, or Hong Kong. You can follow the stock market, write emails, make phone calls, conduct conference calls, show your face at a ZOOM, FaceTime, or SKYPE video meeting — all from the comfort of your onboard office.
  • Mini-sub : Tried and true, the Triton 3300/3 is extremely versatile and thus a perfect choice for Esquel. Suited for both personal and scientific expeditions, this sub operates with a pilot and two passengers. It can travel to depths of 1000 meters (3,300 feet) in safety and comfort. It is the ideal vehicle for wreck diving and for viewing the magic of the underwater world. It was aboard a Triton 3300/3 that man had his first underwater encounter with a giant squid! More adventures await.

 

Shipyard OCEANCO 

Oceanco is a world-class builder of custom superyachts in the 80–140 meters range.
Shipyard’s statement: Every yacht starts with a vision, the Owner’s vision. About how the yacht looks and how it feels. But the perfect yacht can only be the perfect yacht when it is the owner’s perfect yacht. When it touches the lives of those who come onboard in exactly the way the owner intended.

Shipyard’s philosophy: Some things, it seems, cannot be done, perhaps, because they’ve never been done before. Finding solutions requires an open minda focused mind. This is how we build not just the perfect yacht, but the owner’s perfect yacht. Only when we achieve this can we say BUILT BY OCEANCO.
