Marco Yachts, a Chile based Yacht builder, has recently turned their attention to building some large private superyachts of the expedition or explorer style. Marco Yachts has been in news for its unusually named super yacht Z, the superyacht GIN TONIC II and the 85 meter Super Yacht 231 by Ken Freivokh Design, which are presently under construction.
Headquartered in Santiago, Marco Yachts comprises of an excellent team of designers and engineers and is one of the oldest shipyards in that country drawing on experience of around 50 years. Spread over an area of 50,000 square meters, the shipyard has successfully rolled out close to 225 yachts till date. Marco Yachts also have their shipyards at Marco Seattle and Campbell shipyard. Including the headquarters, all its shipyards have recorded more than 650 crafts.
Motor Yacht Gin Tonic II is full displacement 74.6 metre superyacht by Marco Yachts which will be launched later in 2010.
There is only a small amount of information available, as yet, about the Gin Tonic II yacht. However we know that her exterior styling was developed by a UK company called Michael Leach Designs with the interior design by Loro Piana Interiors (Misa Poggi).
Superyacht Gin Tonic II has the usual steel hull and aluminium superstructure of a modern new build superyacht. She is powered by twin caterpillar engines and will have a max speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
Another Marco Yachts superyacht Z is 85.3 m in length overall and is currently in construction.
Ken Freivokh Design is responsible for a very interesting exterior and interior design of the superyacht Z, which is reminiscent of motor yacht Vibrant Curiosity with a magnificent a vertical glass ribbon atrium spanning five decks amidships on the superstructure. This form looks very good on the eye but perhaps more importantly enables natural light and sea views to flood into the yacht.
A beam of 14.8 metres gives motor yacht Z a spacious interior as well as exterior. 14 guests are accommodated in seven suites with a configuration comprising an owner’s suite, two VIP cabins and four double cabins. Superyacht Z has a top speed of 17.5 knots as produced by twin Caterpillar diesel engines. Marco ”Z” yacht is certainly another very interesting superyacht due for launch and CharterWorld News will keep you updated.
Marco Yachts 231 is the third Marco Yachts superyacht from the shipyard is based in Chile. She is an 85 metre motor yacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and exterior design also by UK-based yacht designer Ken Freivokh Design. Once again, there is only limited amount of information available about the 85 metre Marco Yacht 231, however CharterWorld News will keep you up to date with the latest Super Yacht information.
