Sold by Ocean Independence in late 2018, construction on the 45-metre yacht Adur got underway in December that year. She sports a clean and sporty exterior by Omega Architects and benefits from naval architecture by Van Oossanen. The custom project was commissioned by an experienced and involved owner and accommodate a total of 8 guests in four cabins.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Omega Architects
The interior, also by Omega Architects will feature floor to ceiling wrap-around windows on both aft decks, a request from the owner, in order to offer panoramic views from the main deck saloon and plenty of natural light. The lower deck will house a gym while in the bow a submarine to explore the ocean depths will be stored.Photo: Omega Architects
Photo: Tom van OossanenThanks to her Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), combined with Van Oossanen's Hull Vane patented underwater spoiler, Adur’s fuel consumption will be reduced by 20 to 25%. Powered by twin 2580 kW MTU diesel engines and two electric booster engines, she will have an impressive top speed of 26.5 knots. At a steady cruising speed of 12 knots, she will have a transatlantic range of 3800 nm.
