Martinique is the design work of René van der Velden Yacht Design with Nauta Design behind the interior of the first project. The shipyard, however, remains open to explore different interior styling options with a client’s designer f choice.

“There are perhaps three major moments in the build of a yacht after the laying of the keel,” explains project manager Nicky van Zon. “The marriage of the hull and superstructure is the first as you get a visual impression of the true shape of a boat. The other two milestones are when the boat comes into the daylight for the first time and the launch itself.

Martinique is designed with family life in mind charter guests will also benefit from the spacious outdoor dining areas, ease of guest traffic throughout the yacht, and ability to store an impressive fleet of water toys. 12 guests will be accommodated in style across five cabins.
