The latest superyacht concept to be presented by Italian shipyard Fincantieri is Sundance, an impressive 90 metre vessel designed specifically for Fincantieri from British based studios, Gresham Yacht Design and Seymour Diamond.
On board she accommodates up to 14 guests as well as a crew of 30. The design promotes a strong emphasis on the incorporation of indoor/outdoor living, clearly seen within her full beam main saloon. With full height windows angled outboard and a dramatic connection between this room and the sun deck above by way of a central skylight, her interior is flooded with natural light and spectacular views. The skylight is located at the centre of the 240 square metre sundeck, which also features a 10 metre pool complete with waterfall and spa.
Other notable features on board include an expansive owner’s suite with a private terrace, a total of three Jacuzzis spread over three different decks, a substantial private cinema, and a fully-equipped gym with even more panoramic views. With the foredeck including a touch and go helipad and the garage with enough space for two 10 metre limo tenders, a 7.5 metre crew tender, and four jet skis, Sundance presents a complete package when it comes to enjoying the very best a superyacht has to offer.
Here we ask Steve Gresham of Gresham Yacht Design some quick-fire questions regarding the project.
Tell us about the collaboration between Gresham Yacht Design, Fincantieri and Seymour Diamond.
I have personally had a relationship with Fincantieri for 10 years and Sundance was designed specifically for them - Gresham Yacht Design often collaborate with Seymour Diamond for interior design and we work together from our Mayfair office in Central London.
What was the design brief for the project?
The design brief was simply to design a beautiful yacht with a strong connection between inside and outside living. We achieved this by featuring large windows for natural light and large exterior areas which are ideal to enjoy the best of al fresco living.
What are your personal highlights on board?
The style of the vessel with the superstructure sheer line is a trademark Gresham look, whilst the full width 155 square metre main saloon with panoramic windows and the 240 square metre sundeck with the large swimming pool are definite favourites on board!
The Sundance concept will be officially presented by Fincantieri at the upcoming edition of the Monaco Yacht Show in just a couple of weeks’ time.
