New Steve Gresham design to be built by Yachtley
by Risa Merl
A new 87 metre superyacht design by British design studio Steve Gresham Yacht Design is set to be built at Yachtley Shipyard in Izmit, Turkey.
With naval architecture by Greece-based Alpha Marine, the superyacht design features Gresham's signature flowing lines, with a single line flowing from the bow to the aft deck. The yacht will incorporate other original ideas, like combined cone-shaped radar/TV domes and an MES lifesaving system.
With a 15 metre beam, the interior will boast a full width saloon on the upper deck and large exterior balconies. There will also be a novel viewing-lounge on the aft bridge deck that will hang over the side of the yacht and will be equipped with full-height windows providing panoramic views of the ocean.
Enclosed mooring rooms aft will allow for a main aft deck free of bollards, capstans and mooring lines providing clear expansive deck spaces for guests. There will also be an enclosed mooring room forwards providing space for a helideck on the bow.
Powered by twin 2,240 kilowatt engines, the superyacht is expected to hit 18 knots flat-out. Her displacement will be approximately 3,000 gross tons.
