The 44.8 metre superyacht Logica 147-01 is the second delivery of the Logica Yachts line up. Though the contract for the yacht was initially signed with Benetti Sail Division in 2011, the project was passed to Logica Yachts and launched from the Italian shipyard’s Viareggio facility in May 2014. Displaying a dark navy hull, she features naval architecture by P.L.A.N.A. Design and exterior designs by Luca Brenta & Co.
The British designer, Martin Kemp Design, is responsible for her beautiful interiors. Interestingly, the owner - a real estate and media tycoon based in Canada - is also the builder of the boat, who bought the Logica brand from the Benetti Sail Division when he realised half way through the build that he in fact wanted full ownership of the project.
One of her most notable characteristics is her huge internal volumes, especially for a yacht of this size. Throughout the vessel, a contemporary, sophisticated environment has been designed to the very last detail. The colour scheme is simple and clean in shades of ash greys, browns, golds and creams, and creates a very contemporary feel to the yacht. Her vast main deck saloon boasts a beautiful oak floor with stainless steel insets, and is surrounded by luxurious materials as well as mirror, glass, polished ebony and lacquer which have been utilised to emphasise her spaces. Plenty of plush seating awaits guests in this area, with cream sofas and armchairs lined on either side of the room. Large, patterned cushions lay on the furniture and bespoke, golden coloured coffee tables lay in the middle of the saloon, giving a chic edge to the ambiance of refinement.
The main dining area is also found in the main saloon, and features a large glass table encompassed by white leather and dark wood chairs for up to ten guests. Despite the beautiful furniture and exquisite decor throughout, one of the most eye-catching aspects of this area is the incredible, unique chandelier that hangs above the dining table. The whole area is surrounded by large windows, inundating the space with natural light and of course providing fantastic views for guests to enjoy whether relaxing on the sofa, entertaining over drinks or experiencing a taste of fine dining at the dining table.
In regards to her accommodation, she sleeps up to 12 guests in total over a 6 cabin layout, including a luxurious master suite, one VIP cabin and four guest cabins.
The full beam master suite is located forward on the main deck, and, like many other living spaces on board Logica, boast vast spaces for her owner’s to enjoy. Including a commodious en-suite, marble bathroom as well as a private office space, extensive windows are located forward and along each beam, bathing the space with natural light.
The VIP cabin is unusually located below in the stern, and although noise levels are, comparably, not quite as low as the other guest cabins located on the lower deck or in other rooms on board, it too exhibits commodious spaces for its guests and has the advantage of ease of access and proximity to the gym area and beach club on board. A crew of 9 are also accommodated on board Logica. Crew accommodation can be found on the lower deck located forward, as well as a large crew mess.
Moving on to her extensive outside spaces, amongst her many exciting facilities and amenities on board is an impressive and unrivalled, extra large 5.5 metre swimming pool. The expansive pool is located in the forward of the main deck just ahead of the main owner’s cabin, and features a downstream swimming system, both fresh and seawater and a bespoke whirlpool.
Spectacular views are afforded guests as they relax in and around the pool, with large, comfortable sun loungers and uninterrupted views surrounding them.
Elsewhere, the upper deck aft features a large dining table for up to twelve guests. Partly shaded, a large bar is found directly adjacent. The area provides the ideal space to enjoy the best of al fresco dining whilst soaking in the fantastic weather, or entertaining at night at the bar. A cushioned corner seating area is also found in this area, giving guests an additional option to relax and unwind. The sundeck features a large space filled with sun loungers, offering uninterrupted views.
Powered by 2 x MAN D2862 LE 463 medium duty diesel engines, she has a maximum speed of 16.9 knots, a cruising speed of 15 knots. Her large capacity tanks (71,000 litre fuel capacity, 17,000 litre water capacity) allow for lengthy passages, offering the owner the luxury of being able to choose from a vast expanse of cruising destinations and routes around the world. At an economical cruising speed of 10.5 knots, she has a range of over 6,500 nm. Moreover, her RINA green plus certification means that she will be allowed to stay at anchor in the most beautiful, pure and uncontaminated marine areas.
