Setzer Design Group has unveiled a new design, a 42-metre, micro-superyacht being designed to serve as a shadow and support vessel for the client’s higher speed toys and the vessels of his visitors. After numerous more classic alternatives the selected design is taking shape as a refined and streamlined expression of the owner’s taste.
Both the hull and its superstructure have been sculpted as a blend of long lines with hard edges resulting in what the designer hopes will be received above all else as an elegant and proper yacht be it a support vessel or a fully self-sufficient superyacht.
The design includes four deck levels within a beam of 8.8 metre and with a draft of 2.45 metre the design is meant for moderate cruising in comfort carrying plenty of fuel and water stores of 58500 ltrs in fuel and 10700 ltrs. of water. The design is presently being destined to have a steel hull and aluminum superstructure all built to class rules.
Powered by a pair of CAT C32 engines the hull form promises to deliver cruising speeds from 11 to 13 knots, and having a maximum of speed of 15.5 knots. Power generation will be provided by a pair of 100KW Northern Lights gen. sets and at rest stabilization is planned with vendor to be selected.
There are six guest cabins below decks and a full beam master suite on the main deck with private lounge and balcony. For the crew the vessel will accommodate 8 persons in private cabins forward. A large main deck galley will serve all guests and crew with an eat-in crew lounge included on this level.
Each of the three upper decks is all about the entertainment spaces with large seating areas, sun pads, intimate conversation zones and coffee bars. A large hot tub with flanking sun pads has been placed at the forward end of the flybridge and a system of retractable awnings is planned for each level to extend shaded space during the daytime but to equally be stowed at night for star light. The flybridge will also be set up to accommodate an inflatable slide for water play. A cabana has been located on the transom with an oversized dockage door for deploying multiple jet skis.
The Setzer Design Group continues to flourish with a pair of modern expedition yachts at 46 and 40 metres with builders soon to be awarded build contracts as well as, a 37 metre express plumb-bow vessel for the Nisi line of yachts in China, a 24 meter yacht-fish well underway with a build start of this Oct. and further high speed and specialty vessels from 12 meter luxury ribs to production multi-hulls in both power and sail.
