The latest superyacht from Blohm+Voss is the BV80. This 80 metre semi-custom vessel was designed by London based studio, Eidsgaard Design.
She accommodates 12 guests over 7 luxurious rooms, as well as up to 23 staff and crew over a total of 13 cabins. Her interior layout and guest areas are completely customisable by the owners, allowing for a personalised and unique boat. In addition to her layout, the exterior paint can also be fully customised in line with the owner’s wishes.
Her outside deck areas are extensive, and amenities include a Jacuzzi, swimming pool, outdoor fire-pit, touch-and-go helideck forward and extensive beach club. One of her most notable features is the large main deck pool house and entertaining areas, which provides ample space to both relax and socialise. Stepping in from the glass panelled pool house, guests have a variety of options, including a comfortable, covered seating and dining area, a large pool and several sunbathing areas as well as a bar.
In terms of tenders and water toys, the BV80 comes with a SOLAS Rescue Boat as well as the space for a 10 metre Limo and an 8 metre Open RIB. Jet Skis and a diverse range of additional water toys will also be found on board. She has a maximum speed of 17 knots, a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 6000 nm at 12 knots.
Designers Peder Eidsgaard and Ben Harrison comment, “We’ve aimed to adhere to and expand upon the illustrious heritage of Blohm+Voss and deliver an 80 metre yacht that condenses this knowledge into an iconic vessel with its own distinct identity. Evoking the style of ocean-going yachts from the past, the hull has a generous bow flair, while the superstructure can be split into areas of white and grey metallic to enhance the forward motion of the lines and surfaces.”
The first BV80 is already in an advanced stage of development, allowing the shipyard to offer potential owners a particularly short lead time. If construction started today, the first vessel could be be launched in 2017.
