Christopher Seymour Designs unveils 122 metre Alpine
Christopher Seymour, only just opening his design studio, has started off big with one of his latest designs straight off the drawing board. Alpine at just over 122 metre (122.55m/408ft) has exploration in mind. She will be able to travel to the hot and tropical conditions of the Caribbean, or to the cold and isolated climate of the arctic regions.
She was designed to be able to take on most, if not all conditions that the weather throws at her with her high sides, but still boasting a gorgeous sheer line and open flowing decks.
Alpine's main deck will feature the main dining, theatre, gym, library, and VIP suites. One deck higher features the owner's cabin, with acccess to the main helicopter pad. This deck also houses more dining areas, with a lounge and bar situated on the aft back deck overlooking the main pool area.
Decks three and four offer more exterior deck space, where guests can enjoy the spectacular views.
Alpine’s stern will feature two tender bays, and her starboard side door will turn into a swim/dive plat form. Her tenders include RIB inflatables, small sailing tenders, a couple of jet skis, and Christopher has also designed a custom 36’ express sports fisher, which will be built by Lightning Yachts.
Alpine’s propulsion will be derived from diesel-electric engines, with approximately 6 x 2000kW gensets, which will power two Pod drive units, she will have an estimated top speed of around 18 knots, and estimated cruise speed of around 15 knots.
