The latest Cyrus 34, named Cipitouba II, had a splendid launch in May under bright blue skies. The 34.30 metre semi-displacement yacht has a beam of 7.10 metre and a draft of 1.65 metre. Her shallow draft allows to access many otherwise inaccessible waters and berths. She displaces 150 tons and is built to RINA and MCA requirements. Powered by twin 1,825hp Caterpillar C32, V12 engines, the yacht has a cruising speed of 18 knots and she hits a peak speed of 24 knots. Cipitouba II is, as every Cyrus yacht, equipped with zero-speed stabilizers to ensure maximum comfort onboard.
Composite materials were specified for this semi-custom motoryacht, which embodies a blend of classic shapes and modern lines. As well as a weight advantage over steel and aluminium, this build method also provides a structure with far greater sound and heat insulation and less risk of corrosion. Designed by René van der Velden and Naval Architect Van Oossanen & Associates, Cipitouba II has an excellent pedigree. Good looks make the initial impact with a motor yacht but if a design is to succeed these looks must be backed up by sound engineering and seaworthiness.
The yacht features four full width double bed cabins with en-suite facilities and can accommodate up to six crew members. The Owner’s cabin has a separate entrance accessible via a private staircase in the salon, while another staircase is reserved for the two guest cabins on the lower deck.
The VIP guest cabin is located on the main deck and offers ample space and a stunning view, thanks to the wide windows that surround and enclose this considerable large area. Cipitouba II features a light contemporary interior designed in Anigré.
The flybridge provides an extraordinary array of lounge areas as well as a fully-equipped bar with ice maker, fridges and a barbeque. The foredeck sunbathing and seating area offers an exhilarating space for lounging around with a book or enjoying a cool drink in the breeze. Cipitouba II is equipped with a multifunctional hydraulically powered custom platform of Opacmare. This platform is implemented in the aft bathing platform and serves as a gangway, swim ladder, tender lift and loading platform. When fully opened horizontally it triples the size of the bathing platform. The custom platform of Cipitouba II features 5 steps and a load capacity of 450 kg.
The yacht’s magnificent interior and exterior decks will provide the perfect setting for active days filled with wartersports as well as relaxing to breathtaking sunsets.
