Designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design and with naval architecture by the CRN technical department, the 61.3 metre Saramour boasts clean and essential lines as well as a minimalistic style. Many aspects of the yachts design were in close cooperation with the owner’s individual desires and requirements, resulting in a yacht close to the owner’s heart. SYT's Maarten Janssen stept on board in Italy in May.
At an overall length of 61.3 metres, Saramour has a beam of 10.20 metres and is spread over five decks in total, as well as an additional sub lower deck. Minimalistic style has been chosen for the interiors, with understated furnishing and sophisticated colour schemes of Canaletto walnut combined with burgundy lacquered wood and the elegance of Thala Beige natural marble. These interior design decisions make room visually for the owner’s personal collection of art, a fantastic customisation that is a perfect reflection of the owner.
She accommodates up to 10 guests on board over five luxurious cabins. These cabins consist of two guest suites, two VIP cabins and the opulent master stateroom located on a deck entirely dedicated to the owner. This superyacht is, in fact, the first vessel by CRN to feature such an exclusively dedicated space for the owner, and the luxurious space on board Saramour certainly does the shipyard proud as an outstanding feature debut.
The aft deck comprises a sophisticated and commodious al fresco dining area, conceived to ensure that the owner and his guests can enjoy their meals with a magnificent panoramic view over the sea. The spacious salon is bright and stylish and is characterised by the soft colours of the furniture and décor, interrupted only by the burgundy shade of the partition that serves as a 'wing' with an integrated TV set, adding a unique touch to the entire room.
Towards the bow is the master stateroom, separated from the lobby by a C-shaped concealing glazing activated by the simple touch of a button - a design solution that has been implemented specifically to allow all guests to move around the various decks and use the wellness and fitness areas and the sun deck without affecting the owner’s privacy in the least.
Thanks to an elegant sliding door, the master stateroom opens up onto a private deck with a square swimming pool, decorated with a light blue and white mosaic, and side sun pads. The area in front of the swimming pool is fitted with a central glazing and is captivating when illuminated. The owner's area is completed by the office and the walk-in wardrobe, the perfect finish to a sophisticated yet welcoming area.
Throughout the superyacht, it is clear that details and design solutions have ensured a constant direct contact with the sea. An example of this is the beach club on the lower deck as well as the balcony on the upper deck. The aft door transforms into a beach at the seal level with a fully equipped solarium when opened, whilst the balcony provides magnificent views at all times. The two symmetrical garages of the vessel can fit two large tenders, an 8.20 metre Riva Iseo and a 6.40 metre Castoldi.
The yacht can be accessed aft through the large and comfortable cockpit on the main deck, featuring a guest lounge in bright, lively colours. The salon is a large space, without partitions dividing the living from dining areas. This space is designed specifically for socialising, with stylish furniture, a concealing 55" screen TV set that can be lowered from the ceiling panel, and a beautiful custom-made table seating up to twelve with a Murano glass top supported by a lacquered burgundy metal frame.
In the central part of the yacht is a circular lobby with a glass lift for the guests, connecting all decks, as well as an aerial winding staircase. This was designed to allow light to shine through the suspended steps, giving a charming and homely affect.
Walking towards the bow, to portside, is the wide professional galley, with a fully-custom central island, featuring the same colour shades of the guest areas.
Walking further, on the port side, sinuous lines that run through the sea view balcony area mark the entrance to the exclusive guest apartment, consisting of a suite connected to an adjoining living room.
The Captain’s cabin is located in the central part of the vessel; on the left there is a staff-crew cabin with Pullman beds, followed by the pilot station with a central console allowing to walk around it and offering a 180° view on the sea. This area is completed by the control dashboard, the radio station, and the entertainment and home automation system rack room. The entire audio-video entertainment and home automation system was developed by CRN in cooperation with Videoworks, and can be easily controlled by user-friendly iPad and iPadMini devices.
With her 61 metres in length, the Saramour can boast an additional deck, the fly deck, designed for fitness and wellbeing. A wide sunbathing area can be found at the extreme stern, furnished with comfortable chaise longues and a lounge area that can be converted into a helipad. Inside, the fitness area is fitted with Technogym training equipment and a massage bed that can also be easily moved outdoor and a wellness area with Turkish bath.
A large round Jacuzzi with sunbathing area has been installed in the central part of the sun deck, sheltered by the main mast, and an additional sunbathing area can be found towards the bow.
Saramour is equipped with two 3512 C-C 1230 kW@1800 rpm Caterpillar engines that push her to a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. She provides guests with sophisticated and stylish surroundings, well equipped for ultimate relaxation, entertainment and a spectacular superyacht experience.
