Created by the naval architect Ken Freivokh, the 351-foot Stiletto has a futuristic profile and sweeping interior that makes this Oceanco concept yacht one of the most interesting designs of the year. Freivokh’s inspired exterior features several aft terraces—one equipped with a 25-foot-long swimming pool—that provide exceptional views of the water. The enormous forward social area—unusual even for a yacht of this magnitude—has another swimming pool, bar, recliners, and a shading system. The yacht’s helipad sits forward of this area, while a beach club is positioned at the transom of the yacht.
While its exterior is a striking example of traditional open-plan design, its interior is one of the most unique of the superyacht sector. A two-story saloon with a 20-foot-high ceiling and a skylight that delivers an atrium-like feel also features a mezzanine balcony, glass elevator, and a large spiral staircase. The 50-foot beam of the yacht, combined with the tall ceiling, gives the saloon the sweeping feel of a grand ballroom.
Stiletto is also optimized for performance, featuring a hybrid propulsion system that minimizes fuel consumption. Its twin diesels connect to an electric motor to increase efficiency and reduce emissions. The yacht also has a special system that reuses spent energy. Even with all of its eco-friendly components, Stiletto can still reach a theoretical top speed of 18.5 knots. (oceancoyacht.com)
