Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesBuilt by Devonport in 2006, the 77-metre motor yacht Samar is one of the largest yachts to have ever been built in the UK and remains one of the largest 77-metre yachts today with an impressive volume of 2150 gross tonnes. The design team behind the project includes exterior designers H2 Yacht Design and Nick Meyers, interior designer Joe Thome and naval architects Laurent Giles. She features a large tender garage in her stern which houses an 11-metre Chris-Craft tender and she is equipped with a helipad on the upper deck. Samar’s interior is quite dramatic with a lavish master suite and an extraordinary main saloon with a 3-metre-high ceiling made up of octagonal light wells. Samar is powered by triple Wärtsilä diesel-electric engines that deliver a top speed of 17 knots. Following a recent off-season refit period, Samar’s characteristic all-white exterior has been altered and she now sports a classic blue hull and crisp white superstructure combination.
