This week is the Dubai International Boat Show. One of the innovative concept yachts that was unveiled by His Excellency Saeed Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, Vice President and Chairman of Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi, and Senior Advisor to the Dubai International Boat Show was Tuhura, by Oceanco.
Designed in partnership by Oceanco, Lobanov Yacht Design, BMT, and ABB. Tuhura is truly in a category of its own, unlike any yacht on the market.
The exterior styling is reminiscent of early canoes; dugouts and other vessels used hundreds of years ago by indigenous people all over the world. The Polynesians who famously made long voyage explorations across thousands of miles of open Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes.
Tuhura’ is derived from the Maori verb meaning: to discover, bring to light, unearth, open up, explore, and investigate.
LuxLab, our custom design label joined the team to bring progress and innovation to the systems onboard. To make the yacht an extremely “smart boat.” There is a control system for HVAC, lighting, audio, video, curtains and such, but controls will also monitor behavior onboard regarding preferences such as music and temperature. There are plans to create a full 360 multipurpose room for interactive design and information.
