The new superyacht Air in Amsterdam
Air was launched in March at the Koninklijke De Vries yard in Aalsmeer, and left The Netherlands yesterday to be delivered to her undoubtedly proud owners. She is the first yacht to feature a unique matt black hull, which has been painted with a specialised and environmentally friendly nano coating technique. I was onboard Air earlier this year, and can reveal that her sophisticated minimalistic interior is spectacular. Main materials used include matt-finished sycamore, leather, matt-finished special paint, high gloss stainless steel, palladium leaf, back-lit white onyx, off-white & black limestone and a wealth of carved glass. Expect to see more of Air on these pages later in the year.
