Dutch custom yacht builder Oceanco joined forces with renowned design studio Pininfarina to create a hybrid superyacht concept named KAIROS. Featuring technical design and engineering development from Lateral Naval Architects, the project takes its name from one of the ancient Greek words for time. The superyacht has been designed to provide the ultimate life onboard.
KAIROS is a remarkable vision shared by three passionate, forward-thinking partners: Pininfarina, Lateral and Oceanco. When Owners see the Oceanco NXT endorsement on a yacht’s design, they know they can expect elevated standards of life onboard that are in tune with new perspectives on sustainability and lifestyle. – Marcel Onkenhout, Oceanco’s CEO
The superyacht is developed around an E-Hybrid propulsion system that utilizes batteries as the primary source of energy. Created in accordance with Oceanco’s NXT initiative on sustainability and innovation, the new yacht concept gives an insight into how technology that is currently available can promote sustainable yachting. Oceanco NXT gathers luminaries in the yachting, technology, and design worlds to marry innovation and sustainability in an authentic and meaningful way that will transform how we spend time on superyachts.
Our passion as designers is to imagine new concepts of space that are capable of bringing enchantment to every moment of the yachting experience. – Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Group
More details on the design and capabilities of the yacht will be shared in the coming months.
