Video: Motor yacht Scout launched at Hakvoort Shipyard

Written by

Hakvoort launched their new 63.7-metre flagship motor yacht over the weekend at its shipyard in the quaint town of Monnickendam, the Netherlands just outside Amsterdam. Since then, the builder has revealed details about the project now known as Scout which will be delivered to her experienced owners in spring 2019.

The project is the design work of H2 Yacht Design who was tasked with the near-complete redesign of the vessel after being acquired by her owners mid-build, a deal facilitated by Fraser. “The owner’s brief called for a rugged explorer style yacht intended to look like a conversion from a commercial vessel,” comments Jonny Horsfield of H2 Yacht Design. “We gave her crisp, distinctive lines and integrated forward sloping windows. We placed the tenders on the bow, leaving them exposed to add to the utilitarian aesthetic.”

Diana Yacht Design is the office behind the naval architecture of Scout, and, amongst other projects, also worked with Hakvoort on their previous largest yacht - the 61-metre Just J’s.Scout yacht launch at HakvoortPhoto: Bruno Buisson / SuperYacht Times

Inside, a dedicated owner’s deck below bridge level houses the owner’s suite which leads out forward onto the helicopter landing pad on the bow. Four guest cabins accommodating eight guests are all place on the main deck with the lower deck reserved for technical areas and crew quarters.

Scout will be able to cover a distance of 4,800 nm with a full tank of fuel and a speed of 12 knots and max out at a speed of around 14.8 knots. Final outfitting will continue in Amsterdam where Scout will receive her mast, crow’s nest, stabilisers and propellers. Scout yacht exterior design
