Video: New 45.25m motor yacht ‘South China Sea Cruiser’ concept by Central Yacht

June 19, 2014

Written by Zuzana Bednarova

The new 45,25-metre motor yacht ‘South China Sea Cruiser’ concept has been proudly unveiled by Central Yacht. The ‘SCS Cruiser’ superyacht concept has been conceived for the specific requirements of the Southeast Asia yacht owner. Below is a video presenting this superb vessel.

The incredible full beam main deck of exploits every square centimeter of the hulls prodigious volume to enhance the entertainment possibilities of the exceptional ‘South China Sea Cruiser’ yacht concept.

With a dining and lounge area that would be the envy of yachts twice the size the SCS Cruiser superyacht concept can easily seat 14 for dinner.

Once the guests have departed or retired to bed the owner can relax in the sumptuous Master bedroom equipped with a cavernous bathroom, intimate relax lounge, imposing office and considerable wardrobe space.

The guests are handsomely accommodated in 4 identical cabins, all en-suite and each with the possibility to sleep 3 persons with drop down Pullman berths.

The upper deck is given to recreation with a bar/games room with space for more casual dining and a multi-purpose lounge area with rotating sofas that turn the room into a casual lounge, 12 seat cinema or party dance floor.

Completing the 4 deck layout is the almost entirely covered sundeck has a cocktail bar, covered Spa Pool and outdoor covered cooking area as well as a small sheltered sun pad/viewing area. A touch and go helipad enables quick arrivals and departures.

The true genius of the design rests in the specification with over 50 discrete amendments to the standard specification to enhance the owner’s experience on board while improving reliability and reducing maintenance costs.

As with all designs from the Central Yacht creative director, Paul Brackley, the crew circulation is a masterpiece of design with the practical elimination of wasted space in corridors with the resultant improved efficiency of crew movement.

The profile of the luxury yacht ‘SCS Cruiser’ concept is unique reflecting a different type of use. Gone is the side boarding and wasted “grand lobby” and all attention focused on stern boarding from very low floating docks. The impressive height and volume of the yacht is particularly noticed by guests arriving on the dock or by tender.

Video: New 55m motor yacht KlassiK K concept by Central Yacht

Written by Zuzana Bednarova

The new Central Yacht motor yacht KlassiK K concept represents a quirky design study, exploiting some of the unique features of traditional design allied to modern efficient space planning. Below is a video introducing the latest 55m Central Yacht superyacht KlassiK K concept.

The main feature of luxury yacht KlassiK K concept is the considerable exterior deck space ideal for summer set parties or people who just like outdoor life.

Swing out the tenders on the boat deck and rig up the awnings and you have a covered area of marquee dimensions and a further open area on the sun deck promenade.

The grand spiral central staircase is the heart of the KlassiK K yacht with a skylight and glazed lobby on the sun deck filtering light down 4 decks to the guest lobby.

The authentic cowled engine room vents not only give a touch of nostalgia but also give more space to the main deck salon whilst reducing the intrusive noise fans produce.

With four identical guest cabins on the lower deck, a palatial owner’s suite forward on main deck and a generous VIP forward on the upper deck the sleeping accommodation is impressive for a 55m yacht of any age.

As with all designs from the Central Yacht creative director, Paul Brackley, the crew circulation is a masterpiece of design with the practical elimination of wasted space in corridors with the resultant improved efficiency of crew movement.

KlassiK K superyacht retro modern style does not imitate the past but expresses some themes in a modern more functional way. Undoubtedly the K will look just as contemporary in 30 years time as she does today.

Superyacht LADY CANDY – A jewel of the Benetti family

May 13, 2014

Written by Zuzana Bednarova

In a perfect marriage between East and West, Benetti superyacht Lady Candy (FB260) represents 56 metres of style, class and superior performance. Luxury motor yacht Lady Cande offers the ultimate in comfort, beauty, as well as technology, for a totally relaxing cruising experience.

The style of Italian yacht design masters, the Benetti boatyard’s technological prowess, and the Owner’s magic touch of the East combine to create a 56-metre yacht whose class is matched only by its outstanding performance: Lady Candy, the latest jewel of the Benetti family.

The Benetti boatyard in Livorno launched the motor yacht Lady Candy (Unit No. FB260) late last May 2013. 100% steel and aluminium, the 56-metre vessel is built on a time-tested naval architecture platform with proven dependability in previous yachts. For Lady Candy, this platform was partially modified with the repositioning of the wheelhouse on the sun deck and the associated widening of the beam.

Luxury yacht “Lady Candy” combines interior spaces worthy of a 56-metre vessel with outstanding performance, including a maximum speed of nearly 17 knots, comfort which translates into stability, and almost zero associated vibrations and noise.

With naval design from Benetti together with styling from Captain Paul Brackley’s Central Yacht Design Studio, the exterior lines of “Lady Candy” superyacht have a clearly contemporary feel without diminishing the timeless elegance Benetti yachts are known for. The 962-tonne superyacht Lady Candy is majestic yet streamlined, with the five decks highlighted by a harmonious movement stemming from the contrast of the long bands of tinted windows at the upper decks against the white hull.

The expert Owner of Lady Candy yacht is from Asia and is a great enthusiast of the sea and diving. He plans to enjoy Lady Candy together with his family and friends. The Owner played an active role in the design of his yacht; he had a particularly strong impact on the interior layout which was custom-designed for him by Central Yacht.

For example, the Owner explicitly requested that the interiors be given priority over the exteriors, creating an enormous and exciting main saloon that covers 88 m2 of the main deck; he also had his and his daughter’s cabins moved to the upper deck to maximise privacy. The Owner was also directly involved in the interior styling and furnishing, which was designed by Central Yacht and the USA interior architecture firm BAMO (the latter having just furnished some of the Owner’s other properties).

The interiors of luxury yacht Lady Candy are simple and welcoming. Briar root wood predominates and is combined with soft colours like lilac and jade, reflecting an “international” aesthetic that unites the East and West.

The architects and designers worked with the Owner to develop a design object which is beyond the merely “fashionable”, paying close attention to every detail. This quality is also found in the creation of “custom” spaces to meet the Owner’s special specifications.

For example, since the Owner is a diving and underwater enthusiast, the opportunity could not be passed up to locate a fully equipped beach club, complete with bar, gymnasium, steam shower, bathroom and living area right next to the swimming platform, including separate
entrances for guests and crew.

Superyacht Lady Candy has four decks connected by a central lift that opens onto an elegant lobby leading to various spaces. To this deck is added an additional lower deck for the engine room, mechanical rooms, and various stowage areas critical to ensuring efficiency and autonomy, the laundry room, and other service areas).

The four guest cabins can be found on the lower deck. There are two twin-sized cabins with twin beds and two with queen beds; all with desk-vanity, large closets, and spacious bathrooms. Towards the bow, with separate access, there are five cabins and common areas for the 12- person crew. Abaft, is the large engine room and still further astern is the beach club adjacent to the exterior swimming platform with a view directly out over the water: the perfect place for the Owner’s diving activities.

The main deck welcomes guests with an enormous saloon, bar, and lobby area with ample sofas for relaxing and a large dining room with circular table that seats 14, as well as a powder room. Further to the bow, on the port side, there is a professional kitchen and to starboard, a media room with a 70″ screen and Dolby surround sound speakers. Even further to the bow is the garage for the 7.3 metre Tendershipyard TS 73 tender. Regardless of the weather conditions, the launch can be easily manoeuvred from above by opening the side door and operating a simple launching-hauling system. The garage also accommodates two jet skis, assorted water toys and a cavernous chilled garbage locker for extended cruising. Astern of the saloon, there is the large cockpit with an enormous sofa and armchairs.

The upper deck of “Lady Candy” yacht is devoted to the Owner and his daughter (who the boat is named after) as well as other prestigious guests. This is where the boat Owner and VIP suites are located. The VIP suite is to the bow and enjoys a marvellous water view thanks to the 180° circular window; the suite includes a dressing room, vanity, sofa, bathroom with double sinks, shower, and a bathtub. The Owner’s apartment is astern and includes a panoramic saloon, private office, lounge area, and large bathroom with two toilets separated by a shower. Forward of the cabin is the private VIP terrace. VIP guests need not to be disturbed by crew at any time as they have a secret access to the foredeck through the tender garage below.

The Owner also enjoys a private terrace with direct access via panoramic glazing from the actual bedroom area. This deck also includes a massage room, a typical feature found in the Asian culture.

In addition to hosting the wheelhouse, the sun deck also functions as a large open air terrace with sofas, a Spa Pool, covered cooking area with extractor and a large dining table. There is a hideaway minibar complete with stools custom-designed by the boatyard per the Owner’s specific request.

In terms of performance, superyacht “Lady Candy” enables sustained speeds and optimal cruising comfort. Maximum speed is approximately 17 knots, while cruising speed is 16 knots. Fuel-economy speed is 12 knots, with a range of 5,000 nautical miles. The engine room has two 1.320 kW MTU 12V 4000 engines and two 175 kW Cat C9 Genset generators.

It is an extremely refined vessel, the perfect on-the-water home, one which is proportionally sized and where spaces are used to their fullest, making it possible to navigate in small bays and overnight in ports free of crowds. Lady Candy yacht embodies the world class quality that the Benetti boatyard is known for around the world.

Captain Paul Brackley, Head of Central Yacht, is very satisfied; he worked with the boatyard to come up with the concept, exterior style, and interior plan: “This is our third project with Benetti. The first one was back in 2005: the 65-metre mega yacht Ambrosia, an award winning and technologically advanced vessel with a hybrid diesel-electric drive; it was the first yacht in the world with ABB compact Azipod propulsion system. This was followed by the 60-metre superyacht Xanadu with which we won Robb Report “Best of the Best” charter yacht in 2009.

Ambrosia was the first design where Central Yacht acted as the Owner’s representative. Lady Candy is the first yacht to be developed directly by us, and it has proved to be a resounding success, receiving various nominations in design competitions, in addition to having numerous articles written about it. Central Yacht boasts a list of successful collaborations with Benetti. This has meant that the Owner can count on the synergetic collaboration between the two companies since we have always worked well together during all phases of the construction process. The result is an extraordinary yacht, and definitely one that represents an added value.

We have developed a totally original profile and an interior design based on Benetti’s highly successful technical platform. This has given the client the security of having a unique yacht based on a proven design and with guaranteed performance, not to mention delivery ahed of schedule with no costly and surprising change orders.

Benetti and Central Yacht have worked together to develop new design solutions in response to the most practical yacht management issues; the end result is delivering the Owner a boat which is very easy to handle and maintain. We choose to work with the Benetti boatyard not just for its absolute construction excellence, but also for its flexibility and availability which has allowed the Owner to be more involved (and
experience greater satisfaction) during the different construction phases.”
