Pelorus Provides Travel Experiences for Innovative
Oceanco Superyacht NFT Collection
Putting experience at the heart of digital ownership, Pelorus has created a series of member benefits for holders of Oceanco’s non-fungible tokens.
(Austin, Texas) June 21, 2022: Experiential travel and yachting company Pelorus, has developed a series of ‘utilities’, or travel experiences, to enhance the launch of superyacht NFTs created by world-class yacht builders Oceanco and superyacht designer Timur Bozca. Since its foundation, Pelorus has offered private adventures and yacht expeditions to the most awe-inspiring places on Earth, pushing the boundaries of exploration and experience. This pioneering drive has led them to explore the NFT space and commit to developing a suite of experiential benefits available to Oceanco's verified NFT holders.`
Geordie Mackay-Lewis, Co-Founder of Pelorus comments, "We are delighted to support Oceanco, and their partners, in bringing Superyacht NFT's to life. For two brands with a deep rooted desire for innovation, we've always felt a natural affinity towards the Oceanco team and their forward-thinking approach to exploration. It's incredibly exciting to be involved with such a pioneering project to help modern travelers discover the world through true utilization of blockchain technology."
Reinforcing its reputation as an industry pioneer, Oceanco is the first superyacht builder to launch into the digital world with a series of NFTs. Designed by Timur Bozca of Bozca Limitless Design following previous successful partnerships including the design of concept yacht ‘Esquel’, the NFT collection has been created with the philosophy that yachting is about fun and experiences, and to this end, Pelorus has become a core ‘utility’ partner in this project.
“It has always been important to Oceanco that we push the boundaries of yachting in a positive direction. Which is why launching into a new digital realm with NFTs felt like a natural progression, and we are happy to be working with such excellent trusted partners on this journey,” commented Oceanco Chairman Dr. Barwani.
Pelorus ‘utilities’ may include discounted rates on yacht charter, private island hire or accommodation bookings, complimentary planning meetings with Geordie Mackay-Lewis and Jimmy Carroll, multi-year long term planning dependent on how long the NFT is held, access to a number of scientific research or conservation projects, discounted Pelorus photography experiences with award-winning photographers and documentarians whilst on holiday as well as access to exclusive Pelorus events across the globe. These benefits are just the start of what could be offered to digital owners as Pelorus and Oceanco look to foster a strong relationship with the yachting community through innovative means.
“With our Superyacht NFTs collection, it has always been a priority to offer utilities that benefit holders of the NFTs. As well as being inclusive and granting our community from around the world access to some of the enjoyments, such as taking part in the design of your very own digital yacht NFT, which is a world first,” shares Oceanco CEO Marcel Onkenhout.
