During an exclusive press conference hosted in Loano, Italy last night, Lynx Yachts unveiled their latest superyacht project designed together with fellow Dutch companies, Omega Architects and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. LOV 38 is a 37.2-metre motor yacht that captures the best of each of the three players involved in the project, as represented by the LOV (Lynx, Omega, Van Oossanen) name.Photo: Omega Architects
The exterior is by the hands of the Omega Architects team who drew a very rugged and powerful profile with strong lines that end in a distinctive vertical bow. A comfortable ride and efficiency over long distances come from the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Photo: Omega Architects
Full-height windows wrap around the sky lounge and salon, making for incredibly bright interior spaces, as well as offering 180-degree panoramic views. For the master suite, found forward on the main deck, large glass windows scoop the bulwark for maximum natural light. Aft of the lower deck, double guest cabins have three windows that are interconnected by dark paint to create a longer, more elegant profile.Photo: Omega Architects

The project is designed with various layouts, each to satisfy the need of a particular owner. The 12-guest layout was created for dedicated charter use, while the 8 and 10 guests layouts are ideal for family use. Every option has a full beam master suite with large balcony port on the main deck. The suite includes an office, vanity room, dressing room and his & her bathrooms.
