Explorer yacht Lars making waves on her maiden voyage


When I attended the launch of the 36.40-metre explorer yacht Lars in the Dutch town of Hardinxveld Giessendam, I learned of the owner's plans to take the yacht on a maiden voyage to the Baltic, and onward from Spitsbergen to Nova Zembla. Eventually, Lars will take her owners even further, on expeditions to the North Pole region. Today, designer Felix Buytendijk send us some images from this maiden voyage.

What started out as the ultimate tug boat built by the Dutch yard Made in 1995, has now been transformed into a luxury go-anywhere cruiser, with a new Caterpillar engine and a range of 6420 nm. Designer Felix Buytendijk has restyled Lars’ superstructure, added a sun deck, and integrated a new swimming platform.

Lars features a lounge and fitness room on the bridge deck, a saloon and dining area on the main deck, an owner’s stateroom and three suites. There is also dedicated accommodation for up to five crew members.
