In conjunction with Bart Kimman of Northrop and Johnson Asia, Adam Voorhees has developed a unique conversion proposal for the 65 meter motoryacht, Van Triumph.
The concept relies on retaining the existing hull, superstructure, and systems intact, as they are in excellent condition and respects the yacht's heritage.The proposal offers a more considered and thoughtful process for design and allows more focused changes to occur. This approach is an antithesis to the recent conversion projects on the market that involve a more drastic and time consuming undertaking, often resulting in poorly executed design intents. Two directions have been considered for the exterior, both staying true to the original yacht's classic and purposeful styling. A notable change will be the addition of a Heli deck and a new gantry type system for the tenders.
The general arrangement retains much of the original structure, yet the functionalities, spaces, and experience for guests and crew have been dramatically improved. A beautiful wrap around glass curtain houses the aft dining area and this space can be completely opened up to the exterior.
There are multiple opportunities for formal and informal living and dining on the maindeck as well. Forward is a well appointed spa area with massage, beauty, and steam/sauna room. The Owners space has a very large ensuite and closet, and private lounge. All guest cabins, including 2 large VIP cabins, have been revised, improving their access and circulation patterns as well. A multifunctional, transformable space at the tenders bay offers protected, exterior living. This area and the heli pad could be used for large dance floors or outdoor cinemas. The spa on the sun deck brings excellent views and a connection with the sea.
Van Triumph could be a spectacular expedition vessel or a versatile shadow boat with both accomodation and toy carrying capabilites. Long range, in class, ready to go and multi purpose.
