Oceanco's Project Lumen shines with diamond coating
Published: Monday, 04 December 2017
Oceanco is utilising a new product, Sun King Diamond Coating for Project Lumen. This paint coating is created using ethically sourced natural diamonds with a luminescent effect.
The proprietary Sun King coating uses a patent-pending process developed by Jean Boulle Luxury, a group that has a long heritage in the diamond industry. Boulle is working exclusively with partners AkzoNobel to tailor the diamond coating for automobiles, aeroplanes and yachts.
Commenting on the new partnership, Bertrand Boulle, CEO of Jean Boulle Luxury said: “AkzoNobel sets the standards for coatings in the yachting industry making them the perfect partner for Jean Boulle Luxury’s high-quality diamond coatings.
“Sun King Diamond Coating has a number of potential superyacht applications and its qualities are unmatched by any other product on the market.”
“Following the success of Sun King Diamond Coating in the aviation and automotive sectors, we are pleased to be extending the partnership to the yacht market, said Antonella Donzelli, Global Yacht Director of AkzoNobel Specialty Coatings.
“This innovative product is now available to superyacht owners as a result of technical insight, innovation and collaborative spirit.”
Oceanco’s Project Lumen is a 92m (302ft) concept project developed with American designer, Adriel Rollins. It is a Passenger Yacht Code vessel with accommodations for up to 36 guests.
As the name suggests, the defining feature of the yacht is ‘light’. The Sun King Diamond coating enhances the Rollins’ design, which is replete with metal and glasswork.
