Description

Design
The design of Shamoun started at a length of 75 ft, primarily as a family sailing yacht developed out of other classic designs made by Hoek Naval Architects, such as the 100 ft. Sapphire, or the 80 ft Mulligan. Through the design process it became obvious that the yacht should also be used for charter, for that reason her layout changed completely, and separate crew quarters were demanded. The layout changed to four guest cabins, two crew cabins and a large open plan saloon and galley.

Furthermore the yacht had to have a maximum (light) draft of 2.30 m, in order to be able to enter atolls and other shallow draft places or little harbours. A minimum range under engine of 3100 nautical miles was required, backups for all systems on board, and a large volume freezer and fridge for charter operations.

The hull of Shamoun shows a heavy displacement body, with a deep V shaped hull, and internal ballast. The yacht has a large volume for tanks, engines and equipment. The two engines are located under the salon next to the centreboard. The twin engines are driving controllable pitch propellers and shaft generators. All technical installations are fitted with backup systems. The generator room is aft of the engine room, the control/pump room is amidships n port. The yacht was built to MCA, and Bureau Veritas requirements.

The sailplan shows a high aspect ratio rig, with a fully battened slab reef main, and roller furling systems on the headsails. There are two anchors stowed under decks, extensive safety systems to MCA specification as well as a diving platform incorporated in the transom.

Interior Design
The interior was made of Honduras mahogany, with classic panelling, chestnut floors and a white v-grooved ceiling. The flush deck creates a magnificent ceiling, and still 2 meter headroom throughout. The layout shows separate crews quarters with a crew mess and walk-in fridge/freezer, four guest cabins with en suite and an open plan saloon / galley. A full entertainment system is fitted, including a video screen and projector incorporated in the ceiling. The classically styled deckhouse includes the navigation station as well as a dining area and a little bar. The two aft guest cabins are nicely integrated under the deckhouse making optimal use of the available space.

Exterior design
Shamoun’s flush deck and classically styled skylights and deckhouse are a good example of the latest Hoek Design classics. The double bulwark has been used to remove filler caps and deck drains from the deck. The large single cockpit with its oval shaped helmsman seats creates a cosy atmosphere. The floor aft of the steering wheel can be tilted to port or starboard to create a horizontal floor when sailing under heel.
