Elements found in classic cars inspired exterior designer Clifford Denn to create a masculine profile with sharp angles, as evidenced in the raked bow and reverse sheer. There is also the sturdiness of modern vessels that gives an added sense of safety and endurance, while space is efficiently used to make the most of every alfresco social area on board. Current concept images reveal a Jacuzzi on the sundeck, an abundance of sun loungers and outdoor seating across the decks, and tenders stored on the bow to make space in the lower deck stern for a beach club.
The steel displacement hull is designed with a bulbous bow by the Dutch shipyard’s highly experienced naval architects and engineers, granting a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 13 knots using her twin MTU 8V4000 M63 engines.
The interiors from Reymond Langton Design place an emphasis on simple and clean living with soft curves to create dream-like surroundings. The white furnishings and teak decking are contrasted with accents in green and blue, ranging from light to dark hues to give each room a personalised appearance.
The accommodation will provide for up to 10 guests over 5 en-suite cabins, all designed to offer a spacious environment for relaxation and entertainment to wind down at the end of the day.
The 50m Steel model PROJECT AURA will be ready for delivery in October 2021.
