Oceanco Y701 80m yacht

This week's MegaYacht.com Newswire has a feature on the Y701 Oceanco 80m designed by "Nuvolari & Lenard and the owner":

This must be the largest Oceanco yacht since the Stargate twins and of course the largest all-European construction for Oceanco.

The yacht is said to be already underway in Alblasserdam and launch will be two years from now in the fall of 2006.

The yacht will have a "helicopter landing area" so I suppose the helicopter will normally not be there when the yacht is underway. It looks a bit precarious to go off-shore with an unprotected rather light helicopter up there.

From the rendering one can tell that the Y701 will be a full grown shiplike yacht. However voluminous I yet think the design is quite successful.
I would suggest a dark blue hull in order to accentuate the hull silhouette from the bulky superstructure though.

What do you think?
