Yachts come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. Yachts are the personification of wealth, ranging from small and intimate cruises to the overly luxuriant ones. However, superyachts are a different breed entirely. Made for the ultra-rich and powerful, superyacht commands the respect it deserves, due to the magnitude of its size and design alone. And that is where Espen Oeino comes into play.
A visionary in his own right, Oeino is a designer and naval architect for some of the most incredible superyachts around the globe. Oeino has spent the better part of 20 years designing bespoke motor yachts for clients around the world. These range from a wide variety of superyachts like the Octopus owned by Paul Allen, Microsoft’s co-founder, and the Katara owned by Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the current Amir of Qatar.
What makes superyachts different from its regular counterparts are the gargantuan size, allowing it to dwarf most yachts unmistakably. This is something that Oeino has been known for, dating back to as far as 2003 when he first built the Octopus. At 414-feet, it is one of the largest and most recognisable yachts to sail the deep blue oceans.
Listed below are some of the largest superyachts designed by Oeino — each carries the same elegance and grace a superyacht should have.
