The London-based design studio Gresham Yacht Design has recently unveiled their latest 100-metre superyacht concept: Exploris. Lloyds PYC classified, an Ice Class hull, the ability to carry multiple large tenders and toys, and an impressive range of 7,000 nm makes this new design a true explorer vessel.
Steve Gresham, director of Gresham Yacht Design explains some of the most important features on board: “Exploris features a dedicated helicopter hangar that can house an Augusta Grand or EC135. Guests enjoy a fully private promenade deck above the bridge deck with observation saloon and extra wide side decks.”
“The owners have a private deck area and below this, there is a forward facing observation lounge above the enclosed mooring room,” Gresham continues. “We have been working closely with interior designers Seymour Diamond to develop interior layouts, architectural details furnishing and finishes.”
The CAP 437 helipad is certified for the much larger Sikorsky S76, located aft of the vessel. When guests land on deck, doors forward lead into the heart of Exploris starting at the unusually high beach club where twin 12.5-metre custom tenders are launched and retrieved. Once the tenders are deployed, the 18-metre full beam can be utilised with the added benefit of enhanced privacy that this level affords. When you add a Trident submersible, full dive facilities including a decompression chamber, there is nowhere beyond reach.
