New Zealand shipyard Yachting Developments has released the very first information and renderings regarding the interior of the 33.7 metre German Frers designed sloop currently in build at their facilities in Auckland.
Codenamed Hull 1012, the yacht is the first new build for her experienced owners, who intend to use the vessel to undertake several lengthy voyages around the world. Adam Lay Studio has undertaken her interior design, and worked closely with her owners throughout the design and build process. Lay comments: “Serious blue water sailing has been driving the project and the design brief from the start.”
Inside, she is a family orientated yacht with a natural flow between the owner and crew spaces. She is both light and spacious, with an open plan apartment style layout. Lay explains, “This layout, where you can virtually see from the forward bulkhead to the aft bulkhead was a major part of the design brief and layout optimisation discussion.”
She accommodates up to eight guests on board, including a full beam owner’s suite aft, featuring skylights to flood the area with natural light. A focal living space on board will be the spacious full beam salon, with portholes, skylights and high level coachroof windows all streaming light inwards. The salon features a bar to starboard and a versatile dining area for eight people.
“It has been a pleasure for Yachting Developments specialist interior team to work on the interior of Hull 1012, which has been so beautifully designed by Adam Lay together with the owners,” says Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments. “As the build of Hull 1012 enters its final six months we are looking forward to showing off the end result to the world.”
Hull 1012 is scheduled to be launched in the first quarter of 2016.
