The design, which has been described by Vripack as ‘revolutionary’, uses a pre-engineered platform capable of supporting a variety of superstructures. The interior layout is just as unique, placing an emphasis on multi-use living areas to attract the younger generations of superyacht owners.
“It was our strong objective to bring more experiences to our owners, presenting them with possibilities typically seen only on larger yachts,” Barin Cardenas, founder of The New Yachts Company commented “We created what we coined as a Resort Yacht, and the Vripack team pushed the boundaries even further!”
The interior layout was designed around the philosophy of ‘human-centred’ living and floor-to-ceiling windows are an integral part of the design, combines with a variety of materials designed to manipulate both sunlight and artificial sources of illumination. A sense of warmth was achieved using neutral tones and bespoke furnishings with a soft, rounded appearance.
The layout places a sauna and steam room off the beach club, which itself contains a centrepiece Jacuzzi and a bar. Fold-down bulwarks open the interior up to the gentle sea breezes and an expansive swim platform creates the ideal sunbathing area or casual party environment close to transparent seas.
Direct access is given from the beach club to three of the guest cabins, which include two VIP staterooms and two twin cabins which all benefit from en-suite facilities. The upper deck is the second floor dedicated to family living and privacy, and the Master suite to the aft receives 180 views through the full-height windows and glass sliding doors that lead out onto the foredeck terrace complete with spa pool.
The accommodation sleeps 10 across 5 spacious en-suite cabins and in terms of power a pair of MTU 8V 2000 M72 engines produce a cruising speed of 13 knots and a top speed of 16 knots. A draft of only 2.2m/7ft will ensure that she has excellent access to shallow sheltered bays throughout her cruises.
