Dobroserdov Design and Feadship unveil a 51m superyacht with an eco twist
Friday, 7 September 2012
The Strato concept was born of the belief that the most rewarding yachting experiences provide uninterrupted interaction with the sea. Strato features breath-taking views from every space on board, a bespoke tender large enough to take you almost anywhere and the decks to make everything easily accessible. This unique vision of an "open" displacement yacht has been created by Monaco based Dobroserdov Design and is now under development by Feadship in Holland, and will be Feadship's first ever "Open" design yacht.
Addressed to a new generation of yacht owners, this 51 metre hybrid superyacht cruiser satisfies the requirements of modern yachting for a new exterior aesthetic combined with a truly eco and family-friendly on-board existence. Vast experience building, selling and chartering some of the most distinguished superyachts in the world has taught Dobroserdov that great interior spaces are important, but when seeking ultimate beauty, ease and peace on the sea, opportunity is best captured in the carefully sculpted outer spaces. Experience the seas from all her giant open decks- swim with family on the aft water level deck, relax in cosy ease in the open lounge deck aft of the salon, dine delectably on the upper deck and party in the sun or under the moon on the foredeck.
Strato is designed to be efficient, sea-keeping beautifully with a modern fast displacement hull. This superyacht is designed as a true hybrid, utilizing a conventional shaft system, driven by two MTU 16V4000M73's, each supplying 2560kW of power. Alternatively, two electric motors of 150kW motors will keep her gliding along at 10 knots for hours- a perfect, peaceful way to explore new harbours, or run relaxing breakfast crossings, using just light 110 liters per hour. Strato has a transatlantic range of over 4500 miles making her a true oceangoing vessel.
The flow of the design is shaped to function together as a constant, harmonized space, with a bright signature interior layout and style concocted by Dobroserdov and shaped by Rome's Michela Reverberi. The first decks guests are presented are Strato's aft decks, with vast expanses for socializing and entertaining. The design's flexibility becomes visible in these split aft decks- great sculpted areas of open space invite imagination toward all possibilities aboard. These aft decks' drama is punctuated by the presence of an immense, carefully designed infinity pool perched over its transom, balanced between levels. Whether acting as a free flowing, flexible beach club, a party vessel, or a perfect family escape, Strato's spaces significantly supersede the size of those found on yachts more than ten meters longer.
She also maintains a higher level of functionality and flexibility than any available even on much larger vessels, and allows everyone aboard to thrive, as the Strato adapts to every need. Wandering toward the foredeck, guests will enjoy huge windows defining the perimeter of the main deck interior, lit with custom Cool-Led lighting. Extra-large windows allow beautiful views from all five cabins and the rest of the interior. Lucky guests will be delighted to discover Strato's bespoke 7.5 meter tender, ensconced in discreet recesses below the foredeck. Access the tender and toys using custom stress-free launching system, and Strato's adventures can continue beyond her decks, to waterfront restaurants, secluded beaches, and other adventures, now quickly within reach. Returning to Strato after outward adventures, guests are welcomed back with unparalleled ease, as Strato's twin dual hydraulic swim platforms independently adjust out from the aft deck, so that guests may step directly from tender to the deck level.
