Slipstream Yacht Review

Slipstream is a 60m Luxury motor yacht with an outdoor cinema, disco club, Jacuzzi and water slide.

Motor Yacht Slipstream

Sail on an adventure of a lifetime on board the superyacht Slipstream. She was the winner of the 2010 International Superyacht Society award for having the best interior as well as being the most stunning yacht on show. With her silver superstructure and black hull Slipstream is impressive both inside and out. Andrew Winch designed the interiors which are distinctive and innovative. The saloon has a huge deck space while the 32m sun deck is fitted with a retractable roof. This roof helps to shade the dining area or can open out to the sky.

On the upper deck, there’s a beautiful circular dining room that has retracting glass doors. The saloon close by is host to a cinema where guests can watch the latest movies with a glass of champers, now that does sound appealing!

Let’s take a guided tour

Step aboard one of the most colourful and impressionable superyachts to see what lies in store. Through the starboard side door is a trio of totem poles set against a marble stairwell in black fossil. This rises up from a central atrium – absolutely awesome!

This sculpture was hand carved by the artist Stanley Clifford Hunt, a British Columbian, who was passionate about native art. There are paintings of aboriginal art and Pacific Northwest offerings featured right through Slipstream. This gives an inkling of where the owner was born in Canada and hints about his adopted home in Australia.

 

The main saloon can be found aft of this entrance hall where again aboriginal paintings hang. They are reflected beautifully in the high gloss ebony dining table with dark wenge mullions wrapping their way across the ceiling. Bulkheads in red and leather dining chairs go perfectly with the white carpet, adding a dramatic look.

Comfy sofas and sumptuous armchairs are situated opposite the dining table, all facing a circular glass coffee table. A central sideboard with a roller blind divides the open plan space with sliding bulkheads on each side. These can divide the lounge and dining room into two separate areas, ideal if you want some privacy in the evening.

Exquisite accommodation

The main deck houses a spacious master suite that takes up the full breadth of the yacht. There’s an office, two bathrooms, a walk-in closet, private observation lounge and sleeping quarters. The entire suite is very similar to an apartment with a custom-made desk in ebony and a cream leather insert. Sea views are spectacular from this study which in turn leads into the master cabin.

Red is the chosen colour for headboards with woven leather bulkheads joined by curved black pillars. Over the bed, which has black linen, is a red circular light with a mirror border and high gloss wood at the centre. The colour scheme of red and black is enhanced by a soft taupe shade carpet, absolutely amazing! The bulkheads can be opened at the touch of a button to disclose a walk-in wardrobe and a huge bathroom. From here you will notice a short corridor which leads to a raised observation lounge. This lounge is decorated in a monochrome palette. It’s a charming retreat that offers a tranquil setting to relax in and admire the changing views.

On the lower deck are four further guest cabins. Two cabins forward can be changed into singles or doubles while the two cabins aft are fixed doubles and have a bath tub each. Décor is different in each state room however they all share rippled walnut central panelling, just gorgeous.

The port side of the bridge deck has a surprise VIP suite which is approximately the same size as the guest cabins below. This suite benefits from full-length French windows opening onto a private balcony where guests can take breakfast.

Plenty of exciting water toys

For guests who like water adventures, there’s a plethora of exciting water toys to choose from. Bombardier wave runners with 215 hp engines, kayaks, sailing dinghies and water skis will keep the most energetic of guests happy. Why not try a wake board, knee board or walk across the water on an inflatable? Children will love the doughnut inflatable ride or the custom waterslide, while suba divers and snorkellers are well catered for too. For the more experienced, there are kitesurf boards and kites to see Slipstream from way above in the sky.

What else is on board Slipstream?

You’ll also find a stunning sky lounge on the bridge deck aft of Slipstream. It’s the same size as the main saloon. However, it’s a more relaxed location with its cream carpets and wall panels, soft furnishings in charcoal/cream along with weathered lime wenge beams.

An electronically controlled 4m cinema screen can be unrolled upwards from a chaise lounge to meet the ceiling with a projector that drops down. Black out blinds cover the windows to provide a real cinema experience while guests chill on comfortable sofas or armchairs. A round dining table made from limed wenge is further aft and another design feature from Andrew Winch. Curved floor-to-ceiling windows slide open creating a semi al fresco space and access to a lounging area.

The sun deck is definitely one of the highlights on Slipstream. It’s well-equipped with a Jacuzzi forward which is protected by glass windscreens. Lots of sun pads provide a welcome seating area for guests to spend the day. Across the width of the sun deck aft is a more casual seating area with a rectangular dining table situated in the shade of a hardtop and fabric canopy. Again, there are sliding glass doors right across the middle of the deck to prevent guests from being windblown. A glass topped bar, discreet day head and open air shower are also situated here.

For a smooth ride and comfortable cruising, Slipstream has been fitted with Quantum Zero Speed Stabilisers. The fixed bathing platform provides easy access into the sea while a gym on the bridge deck is ideal for those who like to stay fit while on vacation. This magnificent vessel is striking with spaces both inside and out that are totally versatile. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere as soon as you step on board. Slipstream is one of the most luxurious superyachts in the world of yacht chartering. Why not make a reservation and see for yourself?
