Bray Yacht Design has unveiled a long-range superyacht was designed for a Russian client and has a much more European flair than most Bray designs. It was made for entertaining with a formal main salon, a more casual library/lounge with fireplace and a dramatic forward dining room.
The owner’s apartment is on the upper deck aft and encompasses over 800 sq. ft. of indoor space with an additional completely private 450 sq. ft. of outdoor area. There is also a huge walk-in closet and very spacious bathroom. As on the main level, the large curved glass doors to the deck area can be completely opened up to make this one large indoor-outdoor space. The outside staircase from the main deck passes through this level with a short landing for the door to the apartment but there is no public access to the aft deck. Directly forward is a stateroom for additional family, or for security personnel. The captain’s cabin and ship’s office are both right behind the bridge. There is also a forward outdoor seating area on the bow.
Below decks are four large guest staterooms while forward there are accommodations for eight crew and a crew lounge. Aft of the engine room is a tender garage housing a 23 ft. runabout as well as jet skis.
The flybridge is certainly a space meant for entertaining. Sunpads surround the hot tub, there are lounge chairs and seating both in the sun and shade, a dining table for twelve, and a forward observer’s counter. A large barbeque and serving bar are positioned to port. Overall this vessel fulfills the design brief for the living environment – combining style and practicality in a luxurious and comfortable space.
This design incorporates leading edge hull technology, developed over many years of R&D; not only is this vessel super fuel efficient, but it has exceptional seakeeping as well. And then there are the additional benefits that are unexpected – increased living space being one of the most advantageous. The hull form also has a wide spray knocker that runs the full length of the vessel. This keeps the vessel very dry and double the range of stability required by even the most stringent of classification societies.
