Van Geest Design unveils 32 metre superyacht
By Maarten Janssen
Pieter van Geest of Van Geest Design has released details about his latest design concept, this time for a 32 metre superyacht. Described by Pieter as a "contemporary gentlemen’s boat", the yacht has a sturdy explorer look, with clean modern lines.
The idea behind the design is to have the hull painted in marine grade quality, yet keeping everything behind and above the bulkheads in superyacht finish. This will make the yacht less vulnerable to damages, making commercial or fishing ports more accessible to the yacht. This philosophy also translates to the aft decks, which will be finished in a synthetic shock absorbent surface, allowing freedom of tenders and toys to be stored on deck, with the risk of damaging the fragile teak decks.
Inside we find two saloons, two en-suite guest cabins mid ship on lower deck, and an owner’s stateroom with an office and his and hers en-suite forward on main deck.
As for the technical specifications, Pieter explains: "Choice of systems and engineering is foreseen to be simple and sturdy coming from the commercial ship/yacht industry. Solar panels on the top of the bridge deck will be integrated in the power management of the vessel".
