Norwegian Espen Oino is famous for his megayachts. He owes his beauty and seaworthiness to such monsters as Serene, Octopus, Al Said and a dozen more mega yachts from the most famous shipyards. His signature is under the drawings of both silver arrows... Hanseatic Marine - the fastest yachts in the world over 70 meters long with traditional propulsion systems.

Another interesting project is the Aerocruiser, a small high-speed yacht designed by Espen Oeino International for the shipyard. Danish Yachts. It should be noted that at 116 feet, "small" is only relative to most of Oino's other creations. It will be one of the fastest boats in its size - the creators expect the maximum speed to reach 52 knots. The most amazing thing is that such a jump is achieved without the use of gas turbines - two water jets of the boat will be driven by two MTU diesel engines, each with 4600 hp. The Aerocruiser's design and construction skills are further enhanced by the fact that the cruising speed is only 4 knots lower than the maximum speed.

The construction was announced back in January 2008 and the boat is about to be launched at the Danish Yachts shipyard in Skagen.
