Earlier this year, Erdevicki Superyacht Design was entrusted with the modernisation of a 38.10 metre explorer trawler-type yacht design. The brief was to minimise any structural changes to the hull and accommodation whilst updating the exterior look of the boat.
The design needed to incorporate modern lines and curves to soften the trawler appearance of the superstructure, as well as cleaning up the clattered look of the hull. Although retaining the original sheer lines of the vessel, the bulwark has received a tumblehome form. The hull sides, split horizontally in two levels before, are now integrated into one smooth plane.
Erdevicki have joined the main and upper decks by panoramic windows and stylish grilles in the passageways, whilst the original portholes are retained with the six mid-hull enlarged to an ovoid shape for more light below. The classic vertical oblong windows on the main deck are integrated into one panoramic unit, which will let in more natural light and offer better panoramic views. The aft salon windows on the main deck have undergone the same treatment.
The superstructure has been restyled, softened and rounded with pilothouse windows reshaped and enlarged for even better panoramic views. The fly bridge remains the same size but with a larger wrap-around windshield and revamped exhaust stack and mast. The aft of the fly bridge now gives an excellent view of the upper deck carrying two tenders, a dinghy and two ski-jets all handled by a hydraulic crane stowed neatly on the deck.
This explorer yacht retains the accommodation for 10 – 11 guests in one master suite and four double guest cabins, one with additional Pullman berth, whilst the crew of 6 or 7 are accommodated over four cabins.
