Alpha Marine Yacht Designers and Naval Architects have unveiled their latest 49.9-metre superyacht design: Kentaurus. With an LOA of 49.42 metres and a volume of less than 500 GT, she has the look of a sport yacht combined with the features of an explorer.Photo: Alfa Marine LTD.With her design aiming to provide the easy circulation of crew while ensuring the utmost privacy for guests, the Kentaurus concept marries a fast, modern and timeless character with lower fuel consumption.

With a focus on water sports built into her design, the aft area is equipped with two retractable side platforms transforming it into a beach club with a 180-degree view. In addition, an open bar with numerous seating and sunbathing areas can be found at the bridge deck.
