Saturday, March 2, 2019 10:00 AM
With distinctive, angular lines and long, elongated side-profile, our ‘sleek’ 55m motoryacht concept was stopping people in their tracks when it was first unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Looking more like a contender for the next world speed record attempt. First impressions are deceptively pleasant because this is a very practical, efficient and extremely comfortable ‘all-weather’, fully customisable, sub-500GT design.
Based upon a tri-deck layout, the benefit for guests and crew is a more simplified flow pattern throughout the yacht.
Lacking nothing in terms of comfort, the main deck comprises a full beam owner’s suite with glorious sea-viewterraces on either side. Four symmetrical guest cabins accessed from a central corridor mean guests can walk seamlessly from their cabins via the central hall and through in to the main deck saloon, dining area and large aft-deckand solarium.
A lower-deck beach club has more than enough space to house a small sauna, a steam bath, water-sports toys and gym equipment. 7.20m long ‘wings’ open on either side to give the best possible interactionand enjoyment with the sea.
A split-level upper deck offersaccess to the bridge, the fly-bridge and an intimate, upper-deck lounge and exclusive viewing area.
Positioned immediately behind the bridge as it is, the upper-deck lounge, with its own pantry and serving area, is intended to offer spectacular views and with permission from the captain, guests will enjoy a privileged sense of interaction with the day-to-day running and operational aspects of the yacht.
Sun-worshippers will adore the sun-pad cushions on the fly-bridge and there is plenty of spacefor socialising and dining outside underneath the protection of a substantial bimini.
