BARBARA Yacht for Charter

290' 4" (88.5m)
Rates from

Spending her summers in the Mediterranean and winters in the tropical Caribbean, the 290.4' (88.5m) BARBARA makes the perfect base for an exquisite charter vacation. A pedigree superyacht from Oceanco launched in 2017, BARBARA was custom-built for world-class charters offering spacious living, luxurious amenities, and a head-turning style.

Nature-inspired Interiors

Designed inside and out by the celebrated Australian designer Sam Sorgiovanni, BARBARA is a celebration of the natural world with interiors that blend fabric with woven leather, sustainably sourced timber, stone and wood grain finishes and a range of textures to create a relaxed resort-like feel. The stunning central staircase that winds its way around the glass elevator connecting all floors was inspired by the Monkey Forest of Bali, and an enormous aquarium in the dining area connects BARBARA to the teeming reefs of her tropical cruising grounds. Frog leather is one of the most unusual materials used on BARBARA and can be found on the bed frames, where smaller squares (each one formerly a frog) create a patchwork of deep browns—a sustainable by-product of the common frog eaten in Europe. Sea urchin dots frame mirrors and artwork, while water buffalo horn has been used to decorate bulkheads and cabinet fronts. Duck eggshells adorn the recliners in the yacht’s indoor cinema.

Outside, BARBARA’s exterior features flowing lines, swathes of black glass and a curved white superstructure to striking effect.

BARBARA offers the ultimate indoor/outdoor living with spectacular sliding doors and retractable balconies, blurring the lines between interior spaces and the world outside. The main deck salon is light-filled and luxurious, with the aquarium separating the living area from the formal dining room. There’s a stunning bar crafted from sustainable materials and as day turns to night, the ceilings of the salon slide open to reveal party lights as the crew clears the furniture to allow for dancing.

Space for more intimate lounging, dining and relaxation can be found on the upper deck.

At the end of a long day of water sports, site seeing or a tough workout in the onboard state-of-the-art gym, guests on BARBARA can indulge in a massage or a vigorous water jet shower in the spa to ease tired muscles.


Outside, BARBARA’s attractions are even more apparent. Deck spaces are vast with a myriad of alfresco dining, sunbathing and lounging options—from the expansive aft deck to the broad observation deck with sun loungers and sofas a stone’s throw from the gym.

There is also a Jacuzzi surrounded by sunpads perfect for relaxing and taking in the views or a midnight dip under the stars.

The helideck doubles as an outdoor cinema only rivalled by BARBARA’s incredible one indoors.


BARBARA offers tranquil havens for her 16 guests in eight opulent staterooms, including a palatial master suite with a central skylight and silk carpets mimicking retreating waves. The suite is completely private and incorporates an owner’s office with 11.5ft high ceilings, huge sliding doors and balconies that expand the space further. The glass bottom pool on the sundeck above sends light bouncing around the large room. There are a further seven staterooms—two if which have been classed as VIP cabins and four twins.


While there’s a wealth of entertainment on board, it would be a shame not to make the most of BARBARA’s formidable arsenal of toys and her custom Vikal tenders launched from the expansive beach club. There are Yamaha WaveRunners, SeaBobs, stand-up Jet Ski, windsurfers, paddleboards, and scuba diving equipment for 12.

BARBARA combines the ultimate in luxury with impeccable service from her crew of 27, making her a smart choice for an unforgettable charter vacation.
