Christopher Seymour reveals 96m superyacht concept Sunset Heaven
Christopher Seymour, with the official launch of the website in the upcoming months, has just released his second concept design, Sunset Heaven. At the top end of 96m (96.77m/317.50’), Sunset Heaven was designed with traditional lines, stunning timber features, and boasts modern styling to produce a beautiful modern classic.
The vessel with its innovative styling, helps to produce a more efficient hull due to its plum bow, this extends the waterline to improve the displacement/length ratio. It has a superfine entry for less resistance, spray chine to reduce wetted surface area and creates small amounts of lift, even the anchors are hidden to help improve the flow of water and air across the surface of the hull. Together with diesel-electric propulsion, coupled with pod-drive units, this then helps to increase the vessels overall efficiency and long range distance.
Her interior layout was designed to give the owner, guests, and crews not only a pleasurable experience, but to make sure it was ergonomically friendly as well. So, situated on the bottom deck are the crew’s accommodation, mess, lounge, and main kitchen. With the new increase of crew’s space from 15% to now 30%, the bottom deck is pretty much all crew living space.
Above, on deck one will house the VIP, special guests suites, the main dining, and lounge area for the guests to enjoy, and the two VIP’s suites will have their own fold out balcony. Also, on deck one, will be the main back deck with a large pool, lounges, and sun chairs.
Deck two, or the owner’s deck, can really be made very exclusive at the owner or VIP’s request, by keeping it private and only accessible to appropriate guests. The front part of the superstructure, will house the main/owner’s suite, with great open views of the ocean landscape. Behind will be a large lounge, dining, and private bar. A second kitchen will also be on this level to make the dining more efficient. Deck two, will not only have its own spa, lounges and a bar on either side on the back deck, but a pool and sun chairs on the front deck for more private family/friends time. When the sun goes down the front deck can be cleared for private party, functions, or for special dinners. And to make the owner/VIP’s happy, a helipad is also on the front deck for that little extra convenience.
Deck three, is where the bridge is located. Although the bridge itself will not be accessible to guests, the rest of the level will be, and allow all guests access, from lounging out on its back deck, to enjoying the views on its sides and front deck.
On the final and top deck, deck four, will have a spa, lounge, inside bar, back deck lounge, with a bar on either side for further enjoying the spectacular views.
Sunset Heaven has plenty of toys, towards the stern will house the two main tenders, one RIB for all the fun and games of wake boarding, tubing, skiing, etc. In the back garage will have space for three jet skis, underwater scooters, and with the necessary equipment to have a good snorkel and diving experience, two small sailing dinghies will also be on offer in the tender garage. The second tender will be a custom designed tender by Christopher Seymour with similar styling to Sunset Heaven.
