New details and renderings have been revealed by the Antalya-based shipyard Sarp Yachts of its latest speculation project: the 62-metre motor yacht Nacre. With steel cutting on the vessel beginning last year, her hull is fully completed, the superstructure is 50% finished and the two should be joined together by the end of 2019, according to the shipyard, with the yacht's delivery expected for September 2021.
On board, Nacre accommodates 12 guests and 13 crew across a full-beam main deck master suite located forward, complete with private office and balcony, and four double guest cabins. Three layout options for guests are possible on the lower deck, which also features a dedicated gym and spa area.
Performance-wise, Nacre will reach 17 knots and cruise at 12 knots, with a range of 6,500 nautical miles at cruising speed, thanks to twin Diesel 1500 HP engines. Recent CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and FDHF (Fast Displacement Hull Form) testing by the vessel's naval architects Van Oossanen in the Netherlands and QinetiQ in Gosport, indicated that the yacht benefits from maximum stability and comfort during adverse sea conditions, as well as achieving high levels of efficiency, reduced vibration and fuel consumption.
The motor yacht's exterior design is by the Milan-based studio Hot Lab, with the interior designer yet to be announced. Her exterior design features a classic bow and balances elegance with sporty and modern elements. Although renderings of the interior are yet to be released, the design includes inlays of the nacre (the mother-of-pearl) which gives the vessel her name. In terms of her layout, Nacre benefits from extensive exterior spaces and an extended swim platform, as well as a beach club with side folding hatches. The main deck aft is optimised for socialising and comes complete with sunbeds, lounge chairs and a dining table.The aft section of the upper deck takes its inspiration from car design, with a backward windscreen and a large 'bonnet' forward. The saloon, upper sky lounge and owner's suite are all 'wide body', and include huge windows to allow close contact with nature and generous sea views from inside.
The sundeck includes a dedicated bar and seating area, as well as one of the vessel's two pools, with a pop-up elevator on board conveniently connecting the guest accommodation to the sundeck.
