After the impressive expedition yacht PROJECT MASTER from Espen Oeino and ICON Yachts was revealed at the last Monaco Yacht Show, the client decided on a conversion for taking him and his family on worldwide adventures with plenty of luxuries tucked away on board.
While searching for a suitable platform to convert, the team came across a 66m/216.6ft Offshore Rescue and Support Vessel which proved perfect for the brief. Several modifications will ensure that E/Y PROJECT UFO provides comfort and luxury on board: The platform will be lengthened to 70m/229.7ft for the inclusion of a desirable beach club in the stern.
Furthermore, the addition of a superstructure and modification of the current interior spaces will create generous cabins – including an Owner’s suite and four convertible VIP staterooms – for the Owner and guests, with the potential for charter in the future. Several saloons and recreational areas are planned for entertaining on voyages long or short, all styled by H2 Interior Design.
The exterior decks will also benefit from the superstructure addition, creating more outdoor space to host tenders, water toys and a submarine, plus two helipads and a hangar. Other notable amenities include a dedicated expedition room with a separate dive centre, a gym and Fiji Room with spa/sauna facilities, a bridge deck Jacuzzi that seats 12, and a 10m/32.9ft outdoor pool.
More information is expected to be released as the project progresses.
