Gresham Yacht Design is proud to present their all-new 87m motor yacht. The striking 87m Gresham mega yacht features naval architecture by Alpha Marine. She is to be built by the Yachtley Shipyard, based in Izmit, Turkey.
The 87m Gresham superyacht has been designed with the guest accommodation foremost on the owner’s list of requirements; with the saloon being full width amidships on the upper deck, the full beam of the yacht can be exploited and further expanded by the balconies port and starboard for exterior deck space. A ‘Viewing Lounge’ on the aft bridge deck is cantilevered and overhangs the side of the yacht with full height windows giving an uninterrupted panorama of the sea.
The 87m Gresham yacht has a single flowing line from the bow to aft deck, a design feature which holds the visual balance of the yacht together, the yacht has many original ideas incorporated into the design including the combined Cone shaped Radar/TV Domes which Gresham calls the ‘Scantenna Pods’ to the balconies and the MES lifesaving system which is unusual on a yacht this size and negates the need for external life rafts.
An enclosed mooring room forwards allows the helideck to be on the bow and enclosed mooring rooms aft allow the main aft deck to be free of bollards, capstans and mooring lines to give large clear deck spaces for the guests.
Technical Specifications of the 87m Gresham super yacht:
Beam Max 15m
Speed 18 knots
Power 2 x 2240 kWatt

Gresham Yacht Design (GYD) Style
Steve’s sketching and drawing are excellent and this is his signature strength – he can explore design on the page and has a great understanding of 3D and form and can express this in front of the client. However his model making abilities mark him out as a true pioneer in the Superyacht industry and this is what convinced the Client to use Gresham Yacht Design.
The style of the yacht is dictated by the owners’ wishes and requirements. GYD style is current and innovative, we like to push the boundaries and not be too conservative – to develop and explore new original concepts, but always with an eye on the feasibility of these designs – GYD has developed yacht balconies where previously there were none – we have an eye for proportion and balance – the surfaces of a yacht are what define the exterior – the treatment of these surfaces and the detailed design of them marks the contrast between a yacht that is “produced” and one that is designed.
Working with suppliers around the world GYD understands materials and construction and is able to provide a bespoke service for individuals.
