Why settle for only an infinity pool when you can have a panoramic Jacuzzi, too? Enrico Gobbi’s Team for Design just combined both splashy features into one striking superyacht concept.
Part of Oceanco’s Simply Custom series, the 262-foot Silver Ocean was inspired by aviation and automotive design. To that end, the vessel pairs sleek lines with dynamic elements to make it seem as if it is moving even when it is at the dock.

“Silver Ocean has an elusive look, with the overhangs in particular enhancing this perception,” Gobbi said in a statement. “The profile features three character lines that emerged from our first concept sketches and which became ‘slits’ of light that characterize Silver Ocean at anchor.”
The newcomer features sprawling outdoor spaces, with the large aft decks free of any clunky structural elements that might spoil the view or interrupt the flow. Similarly, the pool on the main deck sits flush with a glass bulwark to ensure a clear view of the ocean. Gobbi says it “feels like swimming in the sea.” The lower deck offers more glitzy amenities still, with the beach club offering a panoramic Jacuzzi, a central lounge, and a gym.
As for the interior, Simply Custom yachts range in volume from approximately 2,500 to 2,700 GT. The vessels typically have an owner’s suite on the upper deck and six guest cabins on the main deck. (The layout can be further customized to the owner, of course.) Gobbi says the owner’s suite on Silver Ocean has a private terrace with a pool and a fluid stairway leading to a helipad on the bow.
In terms of performance, Simply Customs sport highly efficient hulls by Lateral Naval Architects and hybrid diesel-electric propulsion systems that are capable of running on low-carbon biofuels. Silver Ocean is expected to have a top speed of 16.5 knots and cruising speed of between 14 and 15 knots. She will also be capable of covering 5,000 nautical miles when traveling at 12 to 14 knots.
Announced at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last October, the Simply Custom series includes 17 vessels that have been customized by different designers. Oceanco has revealed yachts designed by Espen Øino, H2 Yacht Design, Hot Lab, and Nuvolari Lenard, with more concepts to come over the following weeks.
Who knows, we could get a Simply Custom with an infinity plunge pool next.
