Moore yacht design have been asked by Pegaso Marine to create some new exterior designs utilising the 73m expedition yacht Pegaso platform. The Pegaso superyacht, which was built by Freire Shipyard in Spain, was born out of the requirements of a seasoned Owner, who wanted a World Class vessel, with which to travel the oceans.
The vessel is to be as comfortable exploring the Amazon Delta as it would be in the Cote d’Azur, with a tank capacity of 10,000 miles at a reasonable 14 knots cruising speed. This would allow the luxury yacht Pegaso to travel to places away from civilization for days on end. ICE class, Dynamic positioning, commercially certified helipad, 5-person submarine and 4 tenders all add to the truly “go anywhere” capabilities. The vessel moves the styling away from the stereotype inelegant boxy exploration vessel into a unique more elegant “yacht like” shape.
Andy Moore of Moore Yacht Design carried out the initial phase of exterior design on the original vessel whilst working at H2 Yacht Design and was subsequently asked by Pegaso Marine to finish off the original design after leaving H2 and setting up his own studio. It was therefore a natural progression for Moore Yacht Design to be asked to produce some new exterior designs building on the previous successful working relationship.
Showcased are two different styles of design, based on the 73m super yacht Pegaso platform, the first being a triangular faceted form giving the yacht a muscular masculine feel. This vessel is unique in appearance but still manages to retain a yacht feel. The second design is more elegant and curvaceous in form and has no helideck, although utilises the same platform. Both these designs have flexible layouts that can be adapted to client’s unique requirements. Moore yacht design has several other variations on the drawing board.
