Designed for an experienced boater with the cruising world in mind, the brief was clear; to capture expedition capability in a masculine trawler style yacht refined by feminine, family-oriented design.
“The owners wanted their next boat to be big, but not so big that they couldn’t access beautiful harbors and bays. They were keen to design a pocket explorer. For them that meant everything you typically get in a 50m 500 GT boat, including proper tender load capacity when cruising in different regions, ”says Bart M. Bouwhuis, co-creative director of Vripack. .
A 55 square meters Dedicated tender deck has the capacity to carry two 7.5m tenders. A large lazarette offers additional storage space for water toys and semi-rigid. Aft of the deck is a large outdoor deck with an overhang to provide shelter in harsh climates. And a high bow, expert naval architecture and rugged seaworthiness are at the heart of the design.
