100m Motor yacht Sovereign by Gray Design Challenging Traditions

September 16, 2011

Written by Chelsea Smith

Traditions must be challenged periodically and the 100 meter superyacht Sovereign, from Gray Design has the daring and wit to be a serious contender.  Designed for kings, queens and monarchs, the yacht Sovereign’s strict lines and well-appointed detailing place it in a class where only the best is tolerated.

Maintaining only three decks over the entire length of the motor yacht Sovereign gives her an extremely low profile by current standards and the echoes of automotive design are deafening.  Taking design cues from exclusive limousines and borrowing the style of chauffeur driven carriages give proportions that are both stately and sophisticated while at the same time having an athletic stance that hints at the rapid transitions she makes between marinas.

Clean Energy

The features list onboard superyacht Sovereign is long and several details cannot go unnoticed at first glance.  The wind turbine in the mast coupled with the solar panels covering the roof of the yacht supply clean energy for lighting systems and reserve power supplies that can be topped up whenever the sun shines or the wind blows.  The retractable cover at the bow of the yacht keeps the area cool and can be raised to form a sun shade over the spa pool on a hot day. At the aft end is the infinity pool which can keep water circulating around the reinforced glass helicopter pad for an invigorating swim.  Thread lighting around the edges of the pool give a pleasant nighttime illumination to the experience and these lighting features continue along the length of the yacht and past the peak of the pilot house to give a signature illumination when moored offshore. Accommodations feature an excessive owners suite on the top deck which stretch from the aft owners deck through to the bow owners deck including the atrium located under the glasshouse beneath the pilothouse.  In addition there are 10 guest suites with provisions including a nightclub, cinema, gym and library.

Classy Club

The beach club on the lower deck of M/Y Sovereign maintains the rich detailing of the yacht whose centerpiece is the skylight that looks up through the floor of the helipad. Sculptures inspired by the yacht itself decorate this space and rich fabrics and crystal light fittings continue the theme of elegance and class. It is also equipped with a full wet bar and has bathing platforms on each side that can be folded down for an extremely spacious relaxation area near the water.  Through the doors you will find a wet garage where the tender boats are stored and dispatched from within the hull.

Custom Limo

In true Gray Design style, the Sovereign yacht comes with the optional custom built limousine that parks in the garage alongside the seaborne tenders.  This can be lifted onto land using the on-board cranes whenever an excursion in style is needed around the port area. Powering this great vessel are three MTU Engines and top speeds are estimated at 30 knots
