Desserto navigates the winds of change in the yacht industry. On the first day of the Dubai International Boat Show, Oceanco revealed a revolutionary yacht design: Aeolus. Fully aligned with Oceanco’s NXT initiative, Aeolus is in tune with evolving perspectives on the environment as well as lifestyle. With exterior design from Giles Taylor complemented by interior design from Njord by Bergman Design House, she heralds a new era for dwellings on water, demonstrating that authentic sustainability of the future is beautiful and stylish – both in terms of technical capability as well as materials used onboard.
Named after the Greek god of the wind, Aeolus is intended to have a transformational impact on those who experience her. A floating sanctuary effortlessly sculpted by the wind, her design has depth and is perfectly balanced. It reflects how we relax, connect and work in the modern world, seamlessly transitioning between destinations and modes of living. Her ingenious design resonates with creatives, visionary leaders, innovators and big thinkers. Those who are conscious of image while also deeply private, and who are driven to create impactful change in the world yet wish to stay out of the spotlight themselves. 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 favoured guests. Moving slowly but effortlessly up through the pod-like formations of the decks to the owner’s private oasis, which delivers the best views in the house, this is where she truly resonates with those onboard like no other; the purest of sanctuaries.
Oceanco NXT is a collaborative commitment to the future, bringing together experts from different industries to offer yacht owners a way to live better while also respecting the oceans.
“The collaboration and innovation resulting in the Aeolus design has been remarkable,” comments Marcel Onkenhout, Oceanco’s CEO. “As our newest Oceanco NXT design, she is an example of how we envisage the evolution of yachting, from the perspectives of both her design and technology. To build the yachts of tomorrow, we need to leave behind the preconceptions of yesterday. With Aeolus, I think we have achieved that.”
“Organic nature, sensual being and playfulness played a big part of Aeolus’s design, bringing that exterior language to her interior for a soft and cocooning feeling. Every element has been rigorously considered, including sourcing and traceability of materials and working with some of the world’s most innovative artisans in biomaterials and sustainable development such as Desserto, a premium vegan leather alternative that is made from climate-positive cactus plants and Oliveri Homes, which exclusively works with Global Organic Textile Standard cottons and uses non-toxic processes and dyes to create its materials.,” explains Sarah Colbon, Co-founder of Njord.
Desserto is a patented sustainable material solution delivering the world’s first highly environmentally friendly alternative to leather and synthetics which features organic Nopal cactus, also known as prickly pear, a cacti native of Mexico. Cacti interest around the world has grown with special focus on Nopal (Opuntia ficus- indica) because of its unique characteristics, which provides it with resilience towards the limiting conditions. The Nopal is capable of growing on land where other crops won’t prosper. It can be used for the restoration of degraded land in many countries, it is the only crop which can be trust where all the others have failed. This plant by its own right should be among the miracles of nature.
With a revolutionary bio-material that is capable of supporting brands to achievement of their sustainability goals, Desserto takes a step forward into the marine industry.
“The future of mobility is promising, inspiring and full of opportunities for innovations to emerge and collaborate. For us it is it is a honour to be nominated by the world’s most prestigious companies to build together a sustainable future”., explains Adrian Lopez Velarde, Co-founder of Desserto when participating in the first day of the Dubai International Boat Show.
