Oceanco’s Nirvana yacht

When a megayacht is as large as Oceanco’s Nirvana, measuring 290 feet (88.5 meters) LOA, some people would assume that the interior is a formal, rococo affair. Many megayachts of similar size are fashioned this way, after all. Other observers who follow design trends might imagine that the steel-hulled megayacht’s interior is instead thoroughly modern and minimalistic.

Neither is the case with Nirvana. In fact, it’s refreshing to discover that the owner, working with Sam Sorgiovanni Designs, wanted something far more creative. It’s also more fitting for the personalities of the owner and his family. Since they enjoy an active lifestyle, the overall approach echoes the idea of a water-oriented escape.

One of the most creative decor elements aboard Nirvana involves the guest stairway and glass-enclosed elevator, rising through all six decks. Note the palm frond-like pattern on the carpeted steps and the earthy tones for both the carpet and the wall treatment. Sam Sorgiovanni says that his motivation for Nirvana was to visually take guests from sandy shores to tropical rainforests, in a chic way. Next, take a close look at the stainless steel sculpture wrapping around the elevator shaft. It’s made by a Balinese artist, depicting a whirlpool. No matter what deck the owner or guests (including charter guests) stand on, but particularly when in the foyer of the main deck, they can admire details of the design.
