Superyacht of the week: The 45 metre Pride

Completed in 2013, the brand new superyacht Pride is a magnificent new vessel with plenty of personality. With edgy and recognisable exterior looks, she shows off strong modern features, contemporary lines and a confident silhouette. With an LOA just shy of 45 metres, Pride is one of the most voluminous superyachts of this size, which makes a tour onboard even more promising.

Guests are welcomed onboard on a spacious aft deck which is designed as a big lounge. Here, two cozy setups of elegant round tables, accompanied by svelte armchairs, with sleek wooden frames and off-white upholstery and coral red cushioning offer a welcoming and stylish exterior lounge. It is an intimate, airy environment, located right adjacent to one of Pride's most exciting features.

The entire transom folds out to the waterline, unveiling a large combined beach club and swimming platform that will undoubtedly be one of the guest favourites onboard. Furnished with large sun loungers, elegant director's chairs and a large parasol, this whole area boasts a charming ambiance that combines luxurious comfort with a sense of style that is greatly appealing. It's easy to imagine spending long, lazy days soaking up some sun, taking a refreshing dive, easing back into a lounger and sipping an ice cold cocktail. In any case, a charming feature for ample days of fun and relaxation. Inside, right next to the tender garage, a large private sauna room is at guests' disposal, turning the whole area into a great area for relaxing all day long, with a great selection of amenities.

The atmosphere is warm and luxurious, forming an undeniably hospitable dining room for ample elegant dinner parties.

Pride easily accommodates a party of up to 12 guests in 6 luxurious suites. First off, there is the master suite which is located on the fore main deck. Moving from the main dining, through the elegant lobby housing the central staircase, one enters the master quarters' office. Private, warm and elegant, this office boasts that warm, classic design which is found throughout all guest areas onboard Pride. From here, the full beam stateroom, chic and intimate with plush off-white carpeting, tufted leather headboard and soft lighting, can be reached. Smooth shapes are combined with warm, soft materials, resulting in a design scheme that is rich and classic without becoming overabundantly decorative. Like all areas onboard, there is plenty of detailing to enjoy throughout, and the design certainly shows a certain grandness, but it's all very well balanced and pleasing to the eye. With some gentle glamour, the en suite adds some golden details and black marble to the mix, with a large tub, his and hers wash basins and big shower area as key ingredients.

The master suite surprises with another one of Pride's exciting features: two balconies, one on each side of the stateroom. Even when sailing, these offer wonderful views, perfect privacy and an enticing environment to spend lots of hours of pure enjoyment. Perfect for having breakfast, reading a book and simply enjoying oneself, the balconies are a wonderful addition to the master suite. Add to that the spacious his and hers walk-in wardrobes, and these dwellings are classically designed, inviting and spacious quarters that simply offer delightful, luxurious and stylish accommodation.

Five additional guest suites are to be discovered belowdecks. All with similar classic design schemes, these guest quarters offer luxurious accommodation consisting of spacious staterooms, lush en suites, great amenities and a warm style.

A cozy sky lounge on the upper deck gives the perfect setting for any formal and informal occasion, with an elegant bar and large L-shaped sofa.

This is also a great example of how Pride's classic ambiance isn't compromised by contemporary amenities, contemporary luxuries are present without disturbing the sense of style. Adjacent to the sky lounge a large gym supports guests' everyday exercise regiments.
