DeBasto Designs and Hodgdon Shipbuilding today released an innovative tender design concept - the Onyx 41. From touch screen controls to remote monitoring, Onyx sets a new standard of technology applications in a yacht of this size.
"Although not widely known, Hodgdon's quality is amazing, truly first class, which is our vision for Onyx, a perfect fit", says Luiz DeBasto of his choice of shipyard collaboration.
A host of innovative features such as a self-deploying integrated fender system, builtin dock line handling and user-friendly features including hybrid electric propulsion and joystick steering bring owner-operator convenience to a new level.
A generous open plan space below features a large berth, wrap around settee, galley and head with surprisingly creative dual opening skylights above.
On deck, the open-air concept, semi-enclosed deck lounge opens dramatically to the outside world with a multiple-panel, sliding skylight roof. Integrated monolithic furniture runs nearly the full length of the available space, offering ample stylish seating and lounging.
Both interior and exterior furnishings are clienttailored luxury weather and stain-resistant fabrics from the Interiors Division of Loro Piana.
Onyx is expected to be built in very limited quantities.
