DESIGNED FOR EASY, RESTFUL, FAMILY LIVING
The amount of space and the flow of the layout were crucial to the owner’s enjoyment of his yacht. The yacht can sleep up to 12 guests in six staterooms – rare on a 499GT yacht – including a lavish split-level master suite on the upper deck with a private 4-metre pool on the foredeck.
A sprawling beach club in the stern is another highlight. Moreover, by placing the tender bay in a sunken deck in the bow the tenders are easily accessible yet hidden from view. The grated ‘tween deck arrangement provides storage for two tenders, a pair of jet skis and other water toys, but because it is not an enclosed space is not included in the yacht’s overall volume.
Design emphasis has been put on the yacht’s vast exterior areas and structural elements have been kept to a minimum to allow unobstructed views of the sea. The intimate family areas, including a drop-down bulwark in the cosy dining area, are paired with an almost endless owner’s aft deck.
SEAMLESS FLOW BETWEEN INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR SPACES
The clean and modem exterior is matched by the contemporary yet evergreen interior design. The owner wanted to avoid bright direct light, hence the diffused lighting throughout the vessel with soft, muted beams. Matt-finished bamboo slats on the ceiling helps to absorb the natural sunlight flooding through the large floor-to-ceiling windows by day. A key feature is the gold, illuminated wall installation with integrated crystals in the stairwell that covers all three decks. Glass is also a central element in the design. The result is uninterrupted sight lines and a seamless flow between interior and exterior spaces. Glass bulwarks on all decks provide uninterrupted outboard views and large outdoor areas for guests to enjoy the vistas in a private and comfortable setting.
