Rhoades Young Design unveils 49 metre Classic Explorer


Rhoades Young Design has revealed their latest superyacht concept recently with a 49 metre Classic Explorer yacht. The design has been inspired by the heritage and legacy of classic workboats, and as with the studio’s previously designed superyacht Bystander launched in 2006, has been developed with meticulous attention to detail.

She accommodates up to 12 guests in total, as well as a crew of up to 12. Guest accommodation includes a luxurious VIP suite located on the main deck featuring a private convertible study and his and hers bathrooms, as well as a commodious owner’s suite located on the upper deck. The owner’s suite comes with a spectacular 180 degree view, an expansive private deck with an inside/outside saloon, and a private study.

Her strong forward superstructure creates huge social areas aft, with space for two tenders up to 9 metres in length. One of her most notable features is a quadruple-height staircase that punctuates the centre of the yacht, which begins on the bridge deck and is lit from above through the exterior ‘funnel’.
