Ghost Yachts have unveiled the new Ghost G180F, a stylish and innovative 55metre high performance yacht which is developed in cooperation with leading Dutch yacht builder Feadship. The G180F is designed to combine high efficiency with a thrilling sportsyacht performance and compliant with class requirements for yachts under 500 Gross Tonnes.
De Voogt Naval Architects created an innovative lightweight semidisplacement hull that boasts a 29 knots top speed and a generous cruising range of 4000nm.
“We transformed Ghost Yachts’ objectives into a low weight, efficient hull with optimal propulsion layout. This results in performance normally only achieved on Superyachts with significantly larger engine installations”, says Francis Gumbs of De Voogt Naval Architects.
The uncluttered and dynamic appearance of the trideck G180F is characterized by sharp lines and angled surfaces which are carefully sculpted by Stefano Carugno of design partner Gloss design. The uncluttered theme continues in the refined and wellappointed interior. The general arrangement shows an efficient combination of generous guest amenities and optimised crew logistics ensuring a smooth onboard operation.
Alberto Vismara of Undicimetriquadri created a sophisticated and minimalist concept interior design that continues the language of the exterior design in a compelling way. Theclear lines of the styling are mixed with a rich variety of materials like semiprecious gemstone, liquid metal panelling and aluminium panels which reflect the yacht’s core material.
“The development of the Ghost G180F was an extensive and demanding task. Given her size, volumetric limitations and low weight we were exploring uncharted territory. We managed to create a yacht that has personality, is entertaining but also takes the environment and total cost of ownership into consideration”, says Björn Moonen of Ghost Yachts. “We made an ambitious, supersleek and sophisticated superyacht that will certainly claim its own spot in the industry.”
