Oceanco's most recent launch, the 85.60m megayacht Y708, has won the award for "Best Yacht Design over 50 metres" at the 2013 World Yacht Trophies Event.

Y708 was delivered in early 2013 following a successful collaboration between Imperial Yachts - Y708 project manager and owner's representative - and Oceanco.

The awards ceremony, organized by LuxMedia Group, took place on Saturday, September 14 at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes. Following the gala dinner and announcement of the winners, an impressive parade of award-winning yachts motored by the beachside venue.

Moscow-based designer Igor Lobanov, who is responsible for the yacht's distinctive and elegant exterior design, also received the award for the "Best Designer of the Year."

Y708, which is a substantially voluminous yacht, was designed by Lobanov to appear light and airy.  The extended aft deck area provides generous space for entertaining and relaxation with an impressive 6.4 x 3.6 metre swimming pool that can convert into a helicopter platform; as well the loose deck furniture allows for flexible layout arrangements. Y708 also features a massive garage capable of carrying two large tenders, a 6m-ski boat, as well water toys and the technical support equipment needed to launch them.
