“Luxury is a compromise between comfort, performance and elegance. “ That said, some yachts make you reconsider that affirmation. Koji is a striking performance yacht delivered in 2013 by Leopard Yachts, with an interior designed by Luxury Projects, currently for sale with Burgess. She is the quintessence of what Leopard yachts crafts: exceptional performance yachts. However she is not just any Leopard 34m, she was granted a judge’s commendation at the 2013 World Superyachts Awards thanks to her design, performance and decor.
The boatyard’s distinctive trait of creating striking and aggressive lines is particularly evident. It goes with the outstanding performance of this yacht: a max speed of 42 knots! Powered by three engines of 2,400 Hp each, this yacht literally flies above the sea. At this speed her gun-metal paint is guaranteed to turn heads! Her deck is well appointed with great exterior living areas. Forward, Koji features a massive sunpad and two tables ideal for small cocktails. The aft deck boasts a built- in sofa placed for optimum socializing, a double sunpad and partial shade. The extended swim platform is perfect for the wide range of water toys, including sea bobs and jet skis.
While her exterior is very close to the standard Leopard design, the interior is another story. The interior design is inspirationally Italian. Koji offers an alfresco dining room with glamorous reds aft of the saloon with generous sofas, a large table and a wet bar. With soft furnishings in black, purples and greys, balanced harmoniously with deep espresso wood floors and crisp white panels, the saloon is of an exquisite luxury. She is equipped with an outstanding and unique home cinema, in gentle dark grey tones. The helm station is closer to science fiction than traditional yachting, with a high tech bridge and “sporty” red helm seats. Down below the full beam master stateroom is decorated with infinite taste, a perfect blend between the soft beige furniture and the dark leather floor. Unlike any other Leopard the attention to detail on this yacht is meticulous.
Koji is not just an average Leopard yacht. She benefits from the technology of one of the greatest performance yacht builders and from the precision of the exceptional craftsman that fashioned her interior. It’s true Koji could offer more features such as a sauna, a second VIP room, or a flybridge. But that’s not what she was meant for. She is designed to roar at the sea, feel that thrill of power and live with passion. Because after all, yachting is only about passion.
