If ever there was a yacht identifiable as a Vripack on first sighting, it’s E&E. Tailor-made for adventures on the high seas, the 42m expedition yacht built by Turkish shipyard Cizgi Yat in 2011 screams style and substance. Exterior styled by the Dutch design studio, its high bowed, large-decked design is conceived for comfort and safety in all weather.
In 2012, E&E was awarded the Judges Commendation for Best Displacement Motor Yacht below 500GT at the seventh World Superyacht Awards. Aside from the shallow draft and luxurious interior styled by Art Line Studios, it was the yacht’s vast exterior deck areas – considered for elevated comfort and ideal for living large outdoors – that spoke to the judges.
Two al fresco dining and seating areas nod at socialising. The sundeck, with its on-deck Jacuzzi and panoramic views, is a crowd pleaser. It’s supported by a wet bar, shaded nooks and oversized sunpads. The hydraulic swim stairs bring the convenience factor, either descending into the water or serving as a dive board.
