Superyacht of the Week: The BVB44M

SuperYacht of the Week

Combining Bloemsma Van Breemen’s acclaimed proficiency in the construction and engineering field, BVB44M illustrates some of the most outstanding elements of motor yacht design. With an exterior and interior design by Pieter Beeldsnijder and naval architecture by Vripack, this excellent example of the Dutch yachting industry was launched in August 2013.

Pieter Beeldsnijder designed both interior and exterior, and throughout the journey some elements of the original design requests were changed. The result? We’re left with a clean, simple yet highly appealing design that is increasingly rare in new build yachts today. Some small changes included a redesign of the sundeck, a new office configuration in the master stateroom, and the redesign of a dumb waiter. Spaciousness, however, was fully at the heart of Pieter Beeldsnijder’s layout. From the large engine room on the lower deck to the owners’ quarters, inclusive of a private lounge and terrace forward, the vessel almost creates an illusion of vast amounts of space in only 44m.

One of the most appealing things about Beeldsnijder’s interior design, aside, of course, from the illusion of space, is just how easily adaptable to any new owner’s individual tastes and requirements it can be, contributing to a truly unique and personal project. The beautifully designed interior is simplistic, with satin finish pear wood throughout. Her interior is elegant and understated, and as well as the addition of various items of loose furniture both inside and out, the owner can personally modify the upholstery as well as the photo panels in several of the rooms to make BVB44M truly their own.

There is no bridge deck in the conventional sense on the yacht as the wheelhouse is located on a semi-raised forward section of the main deck. The rest of the main deck features a lounge, dining room, galley and wheelhouse, all with surprisingly generous ceiling heights - again, contributing to that feeling of vast amounts of space. The lower deck contains four guest staterooms - two doubles and two twins - a captain’s suite, four crew cabins and a good-sized lazarette that houses the jet skis and other water sports toys. All elements of the yacht are carefully designed to cater to everything guests on board would desire. The crew quarters are ample and allow the crew to efficiently move about without disturbing guests, whilst the rest of the yacht provides ultimate relaxation, convenience and luxury.

Another highlight of BVB44M is the previously mentioned dedicated owners’ area on the upper deck. In addition to a lavish stateroom, this includes a fantastic lounge and a terrace forward. This gives the owners the option to take in magnificent views and enjoy the pleasures of the al fresco life in private away from the rest of the guests on board, offering an extra slice of exclusivity.

Ultimately, spaciousness proves to be the memorable aspect of BVB44M. This counts equally for the large engine room on the lower deck as the voluminous sun deck. With generous seating and sunbathing areas available for all guests as well as a spa pool and fantastic dining place, the yacht provides a sanctuary for relaxation and luxury. The simplistic and expansive design creates a home-like feel on a spectacular getaway. This combines with elements of the design such as the amount of effort clearly put into the sound installation, providing pleasantly low noise levels to, again, add to that perfect mix of a homely yet luxuriously comfortable escape. Propulsion comes from twin 1,115hp Caterpillars which give her a transoceanic range.

Blessed with a wealth of unique Beeldsnijder detailing both inside and out, the yacht will have a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. BVB44M is an exemplar brand new Dutch pedigree superyacht and is available instantly. She is currently listed at €21,500,000 and is offered for sale with Robert Shepherd of Edmiston.
