MRS. D BY VRIPACK
A floating home for friends & family
Following a complimentary tour of the Vripack studio, the client’s visit at the start of a new project usually commence with the creating of a design brief. If the client are a couple, the man will typically emphasize the functional requirements: average number of gusts per trip, desired speed and range capacity, the need for lounge areas, the accommodation of sporting activities, etc. The lady, on the other hand, will usually emphasize the details of the various living quarters, the galley, the staff needs, colour schemes, and the desired ambience. The one thing husband and wife always describe in similar terms are the voyages they plan to make with friends and family.
Mrs. D envisaged communal ocean voyages, the experience of which would enrich the couple’s relationships. Renowned for building yachts that offer comfort and safety on the Seven Seas, Vripack decided to fulfil the brief with a design based on their well-proven Doggersbank Offshore line, the concept of which featured an interior layout that offered occupants end-to-end visibility. The centrally located spiral staircase made navigating the interior a breeze, and the technical areas were designed to suit long stretches at sea, with plenty of space to move about.
