Superyacht of the Week: the 45 metre Flying Dragon

SuperYacht of the Week

Boasting interior designs by Architect Gian Marco Campanino in collaboration with Admiral Centro Stile and exterior designs by the renowned Luca Dina, Flying Dragon (ex. Capri) was launched by Italian shipyard Admiral Tecnomar earlier this year and was the fourth to be delivered by the company in 2014.

She features a fast planing hull built in aluminum and has a raised pilot house design. One of her stand out features is her light blue hull with a specially designed blue dragon graphic on both sides, a feature which has attracted both admiration and criticism from some in the industry.

Accommodation on board is provided for up to ten guests in total over five luxurious cabins. The four guest cabins are located on the lower deck, and provide a spacious and sophisticated space which allows both privacy and relaxation. Consisting of two double cabins and two twin cabins, all of the rooms feature dark wood furniture which acts as a beautiful contrast with the light coloured carpets. The contrast is further enhanced by red onyx borders and leather headboards, which also adds a splash of sumptuous colour to the environment. Furthermore in the twin cabins extra Pullman berths are also provided, and accommodation for a crew of up to eight is also catered for. In regards to the crew area, three doubles cabins and a large captain’s cabin is located forward on the lower deck, where the main galley is also found.

The owner’s suite is particularly opulent. Located forward on the main deck, this cabin features a commodious bed, large his & hers bathrooms as well as expansive windows which provide spectacular ocean views. The size of the windows also ensures that the owner’s suite is bathed in natural light, giving the whole space a light, airy and welcoming feel. In addition, this area also comes with an opening balcony on the right side of the room complete with a small table and chairs set. This gives the owner’s the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and ocean views in an exclusive setting of privacy whilst enjoying a morning coffee or evening night cap.

Elsewhere on the main deck, the huge spaces are impressive, providing all guests on board with plenty of room for socialising, relaxing and entertainment. The main salon is a mixture of dark wood furniture and joinery combined with precious upholstery and beige lackered ceilings.

The splashes of colour come from decorative details such as the red, plush cushions on the large armchairs and sofas, and keep with the colour scheme found in the accommodation areas. Large windows line the room, filling the area with natural light and providing fantastic views for guests to enjoy. Rounding off the sophisticated and luxurious feel to the salon is the floor, which is made of Tabu lati chocolate parquet.

The dining area consists of a large, dark wooden table seating up to 10 people in the highest luxury and comfort. The design of the table and surrounding areas provides guests with a space to enjoy the very best of fine dining in absolute style.

Leading outside from the main salon and dining area, the main deck also features large spaces and ample, welcoming seating areas, where wooden, low tables are found in the centre. The shaded, sophisticated areas gives guests on board another space to enjoy the company of friends and family in a calm, refined environment. On the foredeck, an intimate space can be found, complete with a seating area.

The sun deck is actually a terrace overlooking the sea, and includes a large sunbathing area and Jacuzzi as well as a table to enjoy al fresco dining whilst overlooking the ocean. The table is shaded, and features a large Yin-Yang design on the ceiling, in keeping with the traditional Chinese dragon design on the side of the boat designed by Dobroserdov Design. This area provides the ideal space to enjoy relaxation to its fullest with comfy, large sofas located behind the dining table, whilst the large bar corner ensures that the space can also be used to entertain and unwind with friends. Complete with a white onyx backlit top and front, an identical bar corner is also found in the main deck cockpit, where more comfortable seating area is also found.

Powered by 2xMTU 16V 2400 M93 diesel engines, she has a maximum speed of 28 knots, a cruising speed of 24 knots and a range of 800nm. Flying Dragon has been used as a charter yacht since her delivery.
