Acquaintance, spectacular new 105-meter PYC-compliant yacht by Vitruvius Yachts

Oceanco partners with designer Philippe Briand and his Vitruvius brand on a spectacular new 105-meter PYC-compliant yacht design. Lean and green, project name Acquaintance is designed to be 20 percent more fuel efficient than other motor-yachts of her size. With a razor sharp elegance that only Briand can draw, her fine lines and sleek layout exude an overall feeling of purity and lightness despite her 4302 gross tons.

Designed to accommodate 24 guests in extreme luxury, the main deck features a stunning swimming pool with a translucent aft glass panel and glass floor enabling it to be viewed from the aft of the yacht as well as from the skylight in the ceiling of the spa deck below. The pool deck lounge area flows seamlessly into the main deck salon. Enclosed by glass walls, the salon is showered in light and yields a 270-degree panoramic view. The 10 guest cabins are forward on the main deck and all benefit from large bay windows and sea views. Twin VIP staterooms will have a front facing views.

A central staircase and elevator service the primary decks from the beach club to the top deck. The next deck up from the salon is the bridge deck with the captain’s domain forward and a guest upper salon aft. Here too, there is a 270-degree view. A recessed bar, permitting unblocked views from the salon, is located on the aft upper deck and is protected from the wind. Forward on this deck is a touch and go helicopter pad allowing for instant mobility for the guests, should the need arise.

One deck above the bridge deck is the owners’ area. Here the owners enjoy total privacy. Their exclusive terrace, protected from the elements, has no external access so it is completely private and secure. From the aft facing bedroom suite there is a 180- degree panoramic view and forward is an observation lounge with much the same vantage point but facing the opposite direction. The top sundeck —accessible via the owner’s deck —has a sun protected bar and whirlpool aft.

The lowest guest deck onboard features a beach club, cinema, gym and spa at sea level and sports a skylight from which one can view the underside of the swimming pool overhead on the main deck. A garage supports a limo tender up to 12-meters in length as well as a myriad of other water-sports toys. Embarking and disembarking takes place amidships. When the beach club door is closed there is no exterior access to the yacht, thus ensuring 100 percent security.

Contemporary and clean, this yacht is modern without being minimal. It has everything a discerning yacht owner would want. Briand’s award-winning Vitruvius brand has hit new heights with this exclusive design for Oceanco.


Vitruvius Yachts is an international superyacht design company based in London. The Vitruvius Yachts philosophy focuses on creating custom motor yachts that are efficient, robust and long-range, capable of independent global cruising. Drawing on the world-class pedigree of Philippe Briand’s highly evolved sailing yachts, of which over 12,000 have been produced to date, Vitruvius Yachts uses the Briand Optimised Stretched (BOS) hull design to take naval architecture of luxury motor yachts to the next level, based on the ethos of “ideal proportion” seen in Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. The increased efficiency of the vessel reduces the operational costs of fuel consumption, extends its cruising range and minimises its environmental emissions. Currently, three motor yachts have been delivered to the Vitruvius Yachts design: 50m M/Y Exuma, 55m Galileo G and 73m M/Y Grace E – all built in collaboration with Picchiotti (Perini Navi Group).

The current range ability for the Vitruvius Yachts platform is 45 to 100+ metres. Each Vitruvius Yachts design is created to the owner’s specifications, with a number of boundary-pushing features that have included ice-class capabilities for polar cruising and diesel electric propulsion for improved. These constructions are conceived – in steel and aluminum – to offer the longest hull for a given volume and the shortest hull for this same given volume.
