Oceanco was founded in 1987 by Richard Hein and has since built 29 custom yachts with up to 110m in length. The company’s current owner is Mohammed Al Barwani, a private investor and lover of the sea. Some of the first large yachts built by the company include Al Mirab- whose name was changed from Indian empress to NEOM, Stargate, and Constellation. Stargate and Constellation were built for the royal family of Qatar with identical designs.
In 2002, when Oceanco was bought by Theodore Angelopoulos a Greek shipping tycoon, he focused the company on 80m yachts. During that time, magnificent vessels like Amevi, Vibrant, Curiosity, and Alfa Nero were built.
In 2010, Mohammed Al Barwani became the new owner. He was greatly concerned with moving Oceanco to even higher feats. Mohammed Barwani has other business interests in the oil and gas industry. He has led the company to focus more on custom yacht building, and they have since built several yachts offering this unique appeal. Examples are Barbara, Infinity, Jubilee, and Bravo Eugenia.
