First Look: Inside the 77m SeaXplorer superyacht La Datcha

Written by Laura Nicholls

The just-delivered 76.9-metre La Datcha is built to reach the world's most far-fetched destinations in style. Her six decks not only offer front-row seats for some of nature's best scenes, but are a luxury sanctuary for her guests after a day of full-on adventure.

As the same designers behind the Tinkoff Collection properties, the interior specialists created a style that was neutral and charter-friendly with the occasional quirk. Guests will notice the Arctic ice-inspired bar in the main saloon, an observation lounge that sits 9 metres above the water, a YachtEye infotainment system and custom-made furniture with animal motifs in each of the seating areas.  La Datcha yacht saloonPhoto: EdmistonLa Datcha yacht diningPhoto: EdmistonOn board, 12 guests have the choice of six elegant staterooms, including two masters and one VIP suite. Also dedicated to guest's relaxation is the yacht's wellness centre which includes a Turkish Hammam, an ice fountain shower and massage room. Nearby are the fully-equipped gym and dive centre with a Jacuzzi found on deck.  La Datcha yacht stateroomPhoto: EdmistonLa Datcha yacht deckPhoto: EdmistonBeing IMO Polar Code compliant with an ice-classed hull, La Datcha can operate with 40 days of full autonomy and is kitted out with two commercially-certified and operated helicopters housed in an electronically-operated hangar hidden under the helipad. Also stored on board are two beach lander tenders, two expeditions RIBs, a three-person submersible and two snowscooters – all custom designed to give guests unlimited access to their environment.   La Datcha yacht garagePhoto: EdmistonAzure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture worked together with Damen Yachting's engineering team whilst being managed by Fraser to bring the Polar Code-compliant concept to life after first announcing the project in 2015. La Datcha is available for charter with Edmiston with a worldwide itinerary that includes the Indian Ocean and Russia.
