Launched in April 2016, Samurai is the design work of Omega Architects with Van Oossanen Naval Architects working their underwater magic on the project. The result is a top speed of 21 knots thanks to the implementation of the Dutch firm’s Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF).
Samurai is characterised by her sleek lines with the majority of the interior volume hidden inside the hull shape due to the minimalistic superstructure. The tri-deck design makes for an extra spacious sun deck arrangement that is covered by the rigid structure for maximum liveable space during those hot summer days at anchor.
The interior, revealed here for the first time, is a bright and inviting space with oriental elements adding a cultural touch to the otherwise very modern environment. A central staircase on the main deck leads to five of the six guest suites on board, ending up forward in the full beam master suite. With a VIP suite located on the upper deck astern of the bridge, the lower deck is entirely dedicated to crew and technical areas with a grand full beam beach club at the stern.
Samurai also comes with a custom built 7-metre Smuggler tender, as well as a 6.3 metre Smuggler tender. In regards to her performance, she is powered by twin MTU 16V4000 M73L engines of 2,880 kW each, providing her with a top speed of 21 knots and a range of 4,250 nm.
