Icon to build new Project Gotham motor yacht
by Malcolm Maclean
To be built in aluminium and designed inside and out by Ivan Erdevicki with naval architecture by Van Oosanen, she will be Bureau Veritas classed and MCA compliant. Accommodation is laid out as five cabins for 10 guests comprising a main deck master suite, a bridge deck VIP suite, a double and two twins, all with entertainment systems, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there will be quarters for 10 crew in five cabins
The interior and exterior guest areas are suitably expansive with a vast saloon offering L-shaped seating to port, a bar to starboard, an entertainment centre with state of the art sound and video systems, and a formal dining area forward with seating for 10 guests.
The aft deck has built in upholstered seating around two tables and is a layout replicated on the large flybridge, offering guests a multitude of areas to entertain and dine al fresco. Twin 2,000hp MTU diesel engines will give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a transatlantic range.
Her designer, Ivan Erdevicki, comments: “Your yacht is where the sky and water meet; it is a place unlike any other – a link between you the individual and the limitless horizon. Reaching this horizon, meeting your wishes, aspiration and desires is the focal point of the Erdevicki design.”
Project Gotham is scheduled for delivery in Spring 2019.
