Having followed her right from the contract signing, SuperYacht Times showcases a close-up look onboard the 63.72-metre Scout. Built in the Netherlands by those at Hakvoort shipyard, Scout started out in 2013 as Project 249 and was taken on by her current owners to be the 100% customised work of art we see today.
With the help of Jonny Horsfield and his team at H2 Yacht Design, the owner created a timeless and elegant superyacht with interiors influenced by his favoured art and movies. As a design to suit the owner's desire for an explorer style, the interior on board Scout has a deeply ingrained maritime theme.
As seen in the recent video, intricately placed ship-inspired pieces are visible throughout the yacht, as well as a central corridor for the main-deck guest areas lit with pulsating lights, full-height windows in each of the four VIP staterooms and an observation lounge with slanted forward windows and large skylight on the upper deck forward.
Diana Yacht Design was brought in to create her naval architecture - a sturdy platform for her exposed tenders stowed on the bow and a helicopter landing pad on the foredeck. These features contribute to Scout’s expedition capabilities, along with her Ice-Classed hull and twin Caterpillar 3512C marine diesel engines that can cover 4,800 nm without having to refuel.
