Project managed by Burgess Technical Consultancy Services for a long-time client of the company, the 62.5m Baton Rouge features exterior styling by Tim Heywood and a Redman Whiteley Dixon designed interior. Delivered in the Netherlands by Icon Yachts in September 2010, the superyacht made her debut at the 20th Monaco Yacht Show.
At 1,423 gross tons, this imposing full displacement motor yacht offers incredible volume over her six decks - probably more volume than any other 63m yacht currently on the water. While constructed to a similar hull and machinery platform as the first Icon delivered last year, according to Rupert Nelson, Sales Director with Burgess in Monaco, "Baton Rouge is effectively a totally customised vessel, radically different in concept and really pushes the design boundaries, resulting in a spectacular yacht with innumerable unique features."
Fully stabilised and optimised in every respect for luxury living afloat, her extensive interior guest areas comprise multiple lounges and a choice of dining options, which cohesively encompass both townhouse elegance and beach house chic to suit one's mood. Accommodation for 12 guests in 7 large cabins is configured as a superb 100 sqm master suite on the main deck, two VIP cabins on the upper deck, plus two doubles and two convertible doubles/twins on the lower deck. Full of wonderful textures, ranging from beautiful woods, leathers, marbles, nickel and bronze details, to hand-crafted furniture and original artwork, Baton Rouge's eclectic contemporary interior is both serene and stylish.
The theme of space continues through to the deck areas which are just as expansive with great outdoor spaces for lounging and dining, a pool with jet stream, a dedicated sundeck (which converts to a party deck) with an enormous circular sunpad, and an inviting beach club lounge at sea level. A gym and a very comprehensive inventory of water toys and tenders along with state-of-the-art entertainment and communications systems complete the picture of a yacht which has been conceived by a highly experienced team to deliver the very ultimate charter experience.
Summer 2011 in the Mediterranean will be Baton Rouge’s inaugural charter season. Her rates have been set at € 455,000 per week in the high season and € 420,000 per week in the low season.
Baton Rouge is offered for charter by Burgess as Central Agents and is also operationally managed by Burgess.
