The graceful 24-metre sailing yacht Project Aandeel represents the latest project, developed by Adam Voorhees from the Netherlands. Originally designed by Sparkman&Stevens and launched in 1996 as luxury yacht Sleighride, which was subsequently refitted at Westerly Marine in California, superyacht Aandeel is the first project designed entirely by Adam Voorhees Design. This beautiful sloop embodies a sense of directness in the built form and honesty in materiality, mixing up the latest technology to meet the demands for high performance sailing as well as casual, elegant living.
Luxury yacht Aandeel is the perfect result of a complete, two year rebuild involving entirely new interiors, exteriors, and systems. Based on the Sparkman&Stephens platform of luxury yacht Sleighride, the design brief calls for automated sail handling systems so the owner can take her out by himself, but also refined and luxurious spaces for entertaining and relaxing with lots of friends and family onboard.
Pre-preg carbon construction, water ballast, and a generous sailplan ensure fast and easy sailing. Reflected both inside and out, particular attention has been placed on the idea of comfortable living in multifunctional spaces that maximize versatility and heighten the relationship between the users and the nautical environment.
Custom furniture pieces commissioned by the owner and interactive lighting details also contribute to the uniqueness of the Aandeel yacht. The lack of visual noise and an ethos of complexity hidden by simplicity define the yacht’s eminently livable, essential aesthetic.
