Azure has long been a well-known name in naval architecture, but over the years has also made great developments in the field of yacht design. Combining their technical skills, years of experience and a very ambitious team of young designers, Azure has created the unique design of MY Dylana.
Azure's Bob van den Meiracker says: "We find there are a lot more exiting and unique possibilities with this area than the classic sundeck layout. By connecting the sundeck to the observation deck by means of lazy stairs which follow the exterior lines, the area becomes a fantastic multipurpose relaxing space that is unmatched in its styling and layout. Not to mention the huge amount of privacy gained with this high-up area".
"Our goal was to create a modern design that truly lives up to the term ‘Superyacht’. We find it is crucial for a custom yacht that it is instantly recognizable from every wing angle. Greatly inspired by the flowing lines of ocean waves, an intense design process with many initial concepts resulted in the elegant exterior lines of motor yacht concept Dylana. Her name literally means ‘born from the waves’".
Her sundeck is accessible through the gymnasium, which is illuminated by a huge horizontal glass panel. For glare protection the light is filtered by a row of blinds before it enters the gymnasium. On the stern-side the gym opens up to the helicopter deck, on which another mobile lounge is located.
Her very strong wave-like lines form a clean composition which does not need many additional design features to make her a wonderful and intriguing design.
Furthermore Dylana has two fold out balconies, located alongside the port- and starboard side of the owner’s lounge. These extra areas enable the owner to reside privately and to enjoy the weather from virtually any location on the yacht.
MY Dylana boasts 6 spacious guestrooms, a private owner’s deck, a gymnasium, a cinema and a truly magnificent sun- and observation deck area. Key in the design of the general arrangement was to create large open luxury areas. She houses 24 crew, has a large tender garage provided with two 10m tenders and the full range of toys such as jet skis and surfboards. She is equipped with a helicopter deck for ultimate traveling comfort. Finally, she has a top speed of 20 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.
