Cor D. Rover developed and patented a completely new concept for yachts under 500 Grt. named ‘Triple Bridge Concept’. The aim was to design a range of platforms from 33 –50m, under 500 Grt. offering owner & guests the experience of space normally found on much bigger yachts bringing great entertainment value for less building-, running-and manning costs.
The Triple Bridge Concept offers a luxury space, ideally the owners cabin, on the location where normally the wheelhouse can be found. This offers the owner a big panoramic forward facing stateroom with fixed balconies on PS and SB who can be reached easily by means of full glass vertical sliding doors.
The wheelhouse is on a semi-raised level and has a full height side door on PS and a gull wing door on SB. In contradiction to many semi-raised pilothouse yachts with this concept the captain is still accommodated just aft of the bridge. The MOB-tender is intelligently stored under the wheelhouse, complying to all regulations. The full beam stateroom on the forward main deck, traditionally dedicated to the owner, can be offered to VIP guests.
If the owner for reasons of chartering his vessel or for reasons of entertaining large groups himself chooses to have the maximum amount of cabins, the 46m Triple Bridge concept offers him the opportunity to have no less than 7 large staterooms of which 5 are full beam staterooms.
If the owners style of yachting requires more versatility each of the offered 7 spaces can be sacrificed and used as i.e. Formal Dining, Gym, Spa, Cinema, Conference Room, Office or extra Tender Garage. There is even one option offering a mezzanine style full beam lounge on the lower decks, with big windows overlooking the sea surface. In combination with daylight pouring through large openings in the main deck this surely creates a stunning loft on the water.
- Great entertainment value for less building-, running-and manning costs
- Many different interior options, depending on the owner’s yachting style
- A total of 7 staterooms is available on the 46-50m platform, of which each one can be sacrificed and used as i.e.
- Formal Dining, Gym, Spa, Cinema, Conference Room, Office or extra Tender Garage.
- The advantage of 2 welded, low cost and ready to use balconies easy to reach from the owners cabin by means of full height glass sliding doors.
The concept is prepared to comply with the new ILO crew regulations, in case they become valid, at the cost of 1 stateroom in favor of the crew quarters. In this case there are still 6 staterooms available for owner and guests.
