Motor yacht PROJECT VICTORIOUS is an 85m/278.10ft expedition vessel that began life in 2006 as 77m/252.7ft PROJECT GIN TONIC II, a.k.a. HUL U-77 at the Chilean shipyard Marco Yachts, with an exterior created by Michael Leach Design. When work stalled in 2011 she was purchased by New Zealand superyacht Owner Graeme Hart and was moved to Auckland under the name PROJECT WETA in 2016 she was sold still incomplete to Turkish shipyard AKYACHT, where she was renamed PROJECT GRAND SERAGLIO and received a hull extension before finally settling on the name PROJECT VICTORIOUS. Her interiors come from H2 Yacht Design and provide a rich contemporary setting for laid back gatherings and impressive social affairs. The accommodation sleeps a maximum of 12 guests over 6 en-suite cabins, with an expert crew on hand to take care of every little detail.

The main deck aft is used for the storage of large vehicles, tenders and water toys, leaving room in the lower deck stern for the beach club. The vehicles are efficiently launched and retrieved using two cranes with a maximum lifting capacity of six tonnes each.
The upper deck aft is designed for outdoor living in a variety of seasons and weather conditions, with a sheltered winter garden created by the extension of the bridge deck overhang, glass windbreaks and outdoor heating. A Jacuzzi is placed on this level for relaxation in the sunshine along the stern. Forward, the bow hosts a touch-n'-go helipad for guests to come and go as they please.
The bridge deck is also the Owner's deck and has a private Jacuzzi aft, while the top deck has outdoor longing and observation areas around the stunning cigar lounge.


The gorgeous interiors from British studio H2 Yacht Design use a variety of woods to create a rich textured environment, including white oak, teak, eucalyptus, Macassar and Teak and walnut. This elegance is further enhanced with regal onyx, Silver travertine and Calacata marble, and an industrial touch is found in materials such as rippled glass, hammered bronze and slate. Each room has its own colour accent, from a mossy green in the beach club linen to deep sapphire blues around the bar.

The lower deck hosts four beautifully appointed cabins of a quality for guests but reserved for staff or crew. The stern section boasts a large beach club of 200m2/2152.8ft2, which features a 5.5mx2m (18ftx6.7ft) contra-flow freshwater or saltwater swimming pool, three fold-down terraces, a lounge, a spa massage room, sauna, hammam, beauty salon and gym.

All guest accommodation but the Owner's stateroom is situated on this deck, and elsewhere there is a top-notch industrial galley designed in creation with an experienced professional chef.

The upper deck has a sky lounge, formal dining room, a cocktail lounge and a forward observation lounge that looks out over the touch-n'-go helipad on the bow.

Above, the Owner's deck/bridge deck places the Helm controls forward followed by the Captain's cabin. Behind this, there are two cabins ideal for the Owner's children or staff, and the Owner's apartment is aft, connecting to the terrace.
