Oceanco unveils Aeolus

Named after the Greek god of the wind, Aeolus reflects how we relax, connect and work in the modern world, seamlessly transitioning between destinations and modes of living. She is a great fit for those who consider their floating home to be like a natural, private retreat and sea-borne sanctuary, accommodating just enough cabins for family and favored guests. The owner's private oasis, which delivers the best views in the house, is where she truly resonates with those onboard like no other; the purest of sanctuaries.

Her interior has a strong language of introducing fully sustainable and traceable materials, including biomaterials, at her core.

"Organic nature, sensual being and playfulness played a big part of Aeolus's design. Every element has been considered, including sourcing and traceability of materials and working with some of the world's most innovative artisans in biomaterials and sustainable development," explains Sarah Colbon, Co-founder of Njord.

Together with Aeolus's technical partners ABB & MTU, Oceanco and Lateral have developed the Energy Transition Platform (ETP), an adaptable architecture to enable a future-proofed pathway to net zero.

"Any yacht built today, will have to span the energy transition, a period of significant change in available fuel types and associated technologies. This demands an adaptable technical architecture that can accommodate the alterations to layout, configuration and specifications needed to integrate future technologies and alternative fuels in the least invasive way possible. Lateral and Oceanco have developed the ETP to ensure multiple technical pathways can be pursued as technologies mature during the energy transition timeline," comments James Roy of Lateral.
