M/Y H 105m Super Yacht by Oceanco
Oceanco shipyard has completed the full-scale rebuild of the 105-metre superyacht H, and she has now been spotted on transport after being unveiled to the industry earlier this month.
The yacht, previously known as Neom and Indian Empress, will begin sea trials after outfitting is complete, following her move through Rotterdam by tug. The rebuild of superyacht H has been described as a first of its kind, as the vessel has been recreated as a completely new, contemporary yacht. Key changes to the yacht include a new superstructure, remodeled interiors by Reymond Langton, upgrades to technology and safety, and enhanced sustainability features.
Richard Hein, acting on behalf of the owner’s representative at The A Group, praised the transformation, noting that the rebuild allowed the owner to bypass long wait periods for delivery slots and reduce the overall construction time of the vessel by around a year. In a statement, Oceanco expressed the hope that the rebuild will inspire other owners to consider similar undertakings, adding that it hoped to offer a more eco-conscious approach to yacht-building.
Paris Baloumis, Oceanco’s marketing director, stated that the landmark project would inspire owners of existing yachts to benefit from the gift of time while adding value to their ownership experience and contributing positively to the planet. Doctor Mohammed Al Barwani, chairman of Oceanco, expressed pride in the completion of the transformation, stating that he was personally involved in returning 1050H to her birthplace for this ambitious project.
