Prowling the North Sea today is Oceanco's latest superyacht launch, the 90-metre project Shark as the yacht continues its testing phase. Hull 717, as she is also known, and her crew are being put through their paces off the Dutch coast this week as her delivery date draws ever closer ahead of the upcoming summer season. SuperYacht Times headed out to sea to once again bring you closer to the action as it happens.Photo: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht TimesPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht Times
Shark was launched in February at Oceanco's facility outside Rotterdam and built to a design by Miami-based designer Luiz de Basto.
