Oceanco has partnered with Lobanov Design, BMT Nigel Gee, and Achille Salvagni for a new 377-foot-long yacht concept dubbed the Tuhura Superyacht, debuted at the Dubai International Boat Show. As Uncrate points out, the exterior design of the vessel draws inspiration from ancient hollowed-out canoes created by Polynesians.

“Our Tuhura is a simple idea,” says Igor Lobanov of the aforementioned Lobanov design studio. “The thought was to take a natural shape similar to those seen in the earliest canoe-type craft and augment it multifold to a larger scale, using modern technology.”

The interior is then outfitted with all of the modern luxuries of a 21st century yacht, making use of teak, gunmetal, and bronze, as a nod to East Asia and the Pacific. The vessel is in turn powered by a hybrid Azipod CRP propulsion system, capable of moving at speeds of up to 18 knots.
