Adam Voorhees revealed a 70m sailing yacht design, in collaboration with Dykstra Naval Architects. The client brief mentioned a fast superyacht, with high level of comfort on board. The future owner required a a yacht respecting the traditional codes of sailing whilt using the utmost of the modern technologies.
Adam Voorhees comments about the her: “The yacht moves beyond the facade of simply using classical styling and a modern underbody but instead arrives at an authentic expression all its own. This is clearly articulated in the sleek glass deckhouses that appear to push through an envelope of teak. In the living spaces the formal decorative appliqué so liberally applied to traditional sailing vessels now becomes a background canvas for highlighting focal pieces of form, furniture, and art to support thoughtful living.”
The yacht features a private lounge and cockpit for the owner, with a luxurious en-suite room offering a wide study. She features a beach club normally found only on board motor yachts. The yacht will accommodate to tender, one limo of 8.5 meter and a 6.5m crew tender. The tender can also be stored on the foredeck, to transform the tender bay in a swimming pool, such as found on board the wider 150′
