JUBILEE was delivered by Oceanco in 2017, to critical acclaim. As the largest yacht (at the time) ever built in The Netherlands she received numerous awards for her visionary design. The 2018 Boat International Design & innovation Awards honored JUBILEE with Best Exterior Styling for Motor Yachts 45m and above. The judges commented, ‘JUBILEE with its trompe l’oeil treatment of deck perimeters, curvaceous shapes and metallic blue and white paint scheme, among other unique elements, indeed presented a magnificent profile.’

Exterior designer Igor Lobanov commented on the design “I wanted the yacht to look simple from a distance, but as you get closer, you can see that it’s actually quite complicated; Initially I called the project UNFOUNDLAND – the soil yet to be found – this is because when viewed from above it reminded me of a topographic map.”*
Burgess originally sold JUBILEE to her current owner before the New Construction team served as owner’s representative, providing technical consultancy and project management throughout the entire build process, once delivered it was placed in the hands of the Burgess sales team.

Jonathan Beckett, CEO, Burgess commented, ‘This marks a milestone in Burgess’ history. JUBILEE is very close to our hearts; following the initial introduction of Burgess client to shipyard, Burgess New Construction saw her successful build and delivery, then 18 months later our sales force closed the transaction, making it one of the largest deals not only in 2018, but in superyacht history. Oceanco really set the standard when producing this award-winning yacht, and I wish her new owners many happy years on board.’

• 26 yachts sold
• 1,388.2-metres total length
• 53.4-metres average length
