Wayne Parker Design has released its latest design concept, the W57 Speedster. The 57.75-metre full displacement superyacht has been penned for a specific client, who was looking for a vessel with an inventive layout which allows for simultaneous, uninterrupted use of multiple spaces on board.The exterior aesthetic of the W57 Speedster has been designed, according to Wayne Parker Design studio director and founder, Wayne Parker, to “move away from swooping lines and embrace a more angular look.” The resultant design is “a modern classic look with a distinctive hockey-style shape towards the aft, which gives it a greater sense of length than it actually is.” Two separate bow configurations can be implemented: a traditional-looking raked bow or a modern vertical bow.
The client’s extensive design brief required accommodation for as many as 12 guests across five staterooms, in addition to a generous owner’s cabin, a gym, a massage room, a beach club and storage for an array of tenders and toys. The W57 Speedster is configured in order to prioritise the guest experience, by keeping quarters for the crew of 15 out of guests’ sight, while still enabling top-level service.The W57 Speedster’s 950 GT interior sports an unorthodox layout, with the main dining area situated on the bridge deck, with a circular table that accommodates up to 12 guests, which not only provides guests with unobstructed views through full-height glass doors, but also allows for the use of the main saloon without interrupting the dining experience. The main deck stern features a large bar to serve guests on deck, in the pool or inside the main saloon. The aft deck is home to a seating area and staircase, where the lower deck and swimming pool are accessed.
Her sun deck is home to an al fresco dining area, which can seat up to 12 guests under an amidships canopy, complete with a bar and barbecue. A portion of the sun deck can be cleared for outdoor activities such as yoga or to be used as a dance floor.
The W57 Speedster will have an approximate range of 4,500 nautical miles while cruising at 13 knots.
