The 55 metre motor yacht Step One has been listed for sale by Moran Yacht & Ship.
With naval architecture by Tim Heywood, she was built by Dutch yard Amels in steel and aluminium and delivered in 2012 as the first in the yard's Limited Edition 180' series. A custom interior by Laura Sessa utilises a colour palette that focuses on creams and whites, with maple wood and white onyx contrasted against black details. Accommodation is for up to 11 guests in five cabins including a master suite on the main deck.
The vast saloon is open plan with no sideboards to divide the space, and with large windows offering splendid views and plenty of natural light. Seating is to port, while aft – in the area necessarily constricted by the technical ducting – a port-side bar makes the most of the space.
The sundeck has been extended over the bridge coachroof to give an additional 32 square metres of deck space. The result, at 25 metres long and covering 155 square metres, is a vast top deck that certainly challenges all-comers for the title of biggest sundeck on a 55 metre yacht.
The forward part offers daybeds with spectacular views, and this area also doubles as a touch-and-go helipad for a maximum take-off weight of 2,000 kilograms. Midships is a 3,000-litre spa pool, while an al fresco dining table is nestled between the sweeping curves of the side coamings and shaded from the sun under the distinctive communications arch.
Available to view at the Miami yacht show, Step One is asking €37 million.
