Superyacht of the week: The Oyster 100 Penelope

Written by Jochem Kaan

With an LOA of just over 30 metres, Penelopeis a contemporary, charming and above all wonderfully spacious superyacht in the Oyster 100 series, created by the strong, award-winning trio of Dubois Naval Architects, Oyster Group and RMK Marine, offering volumes and several features generally found onboard vessels of a significantly larger category. Her exterior look is sleek, refined and sportive, with an axe bow, raised deckhouse and gently curving lines that, combined with her rectangular portholes, give her a distinct look. Penelopeis a charming and compact, but above all surprisingly voluminous vessel that is the perfect first entry into superyacht ownership.

Her hull design is aimed at performance, allowing Penelopeto achieve impressive speeds while maintaining perfect comfort. With wide open and large deck spaces she allows exceptional handling while offering guests a perfect environment to relax and enjoy their surroundings. Penelopeoffers a big central cockpit with a fixed awning, with two large U-shaped sofas paired with tables supplying a perfect spot for pure enjoyment and relaxation. Framed with vista views and ample space, this cockpit is a perfect place for al fresco meals. The central section of the awning slides open, allowing guests to enjoy either sun or shade as they sit back, relax and enjoy all the good things Penelopehas to offer. Aft, there is a second lounge area, with two opposite L-shaped sofas adjacent to the vessel's two helm stations.

Moving inside, the main saloon offers a large split-level space with several areas for working, lounging, dining and navigation. The large windows surrounding the deckhouse allow ample natural light to flow in and accentuate the interior design, which has a toned down, subtly maritime style with a light and friendly character.

Large white sofas, comfortable and inviting, crisp white walls and ceilings and high gloss lacquered woodwork and cabinetry form a design scheme that is gentle and inviting. Penelope's great ambiance is luxurious without being overly abundant.

The top level of the main saloon offers a large U-shaped dining area with big table and grey leather sofas starboard side, and an L-shaped lounging area adjacent to a navigation centre port side. A few steps down fore, there is a large lounge with invitingly big U-shaped sofa port side and a big office area starboard side. Lacquered wood, white upholstery and navy blue detailing in cushions and drapery are key ingredients for Penelope's fresh yet classic interior, turning the main saloon into a light, spacious and flexible room with a pleasantly informal vibe.

Penelopeoffers three spacious guest suites that accommodate a company of up to 6 guests, including an impressive full beam master suite aft. Here, a big and light stateroom offers office and lounge areas, a lush en suite with big shower area, and ample storage space.

Combined with a subtle and light design scheme, a gentle and inviting accommodation is formed, that will make every guest feel right at home. Similar materials and colours are applied throughout all areas onboard, resulting in a well balanced, evenly integrated style.

The remaining two guest quarters, one twin suite and one double suite, are equally well appointed and elegant in style. All guest areas are remarkably light, which results in an open and friendly ambiance that is arguably one of Penelope's most attractive features. And with all designs perfectly framed by gentle, modern lighting schemes, the atmosphere onboard is equally light and cozy at any given moment. Penelope's β€œfloating” interiors, that minimise sound and vibration levels, allow life onboard to not only look soothing and comfortable, but feel remarkably calm and quiet as well.

This charming superyacht offers a range of great features that make her a perfect candidate for owners of varying levels of experience. With her class-leading amounts of usable guest space, large deck areas and charming personality, Penelopewelcomes and accommodates her guests onboard in style. She is pleasantly compact yet surprisingly voluminous, and her elegance and style will allow everybody onboard to simply have a wonderful time.
