Each week we put a spotlight on our favourite superyachts for charter, highlighting any special features or exciting updates, from refit works and itinerary changes to unique on-board designs. This week, it’s the eco-conscious and vegan-friendly explorer yacht Emocean.
Emocean is the first foray into the world of luxury superyachts by commercial yard Rosetti, and is brand new to the charter market following her delivery earlier in 2021. Designed by Hydro Tec with a custom interior by BurdissoCapponi Yachts & Design, Emocean is equipped with explorer-capable features. She measures 38 metres LOA and can accommodate up to 12 guests and 7 crew.
Why Emocean is the perfect charter yacht
With a cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles and a robust steel hull, this explorer yacht offers a wide range of destinations for charterers to discover on board. For those planning to roam further, her broker has revealed that she’ll be testing her explorer capabilities in summer 2022 by venturing to the Arctic waters of Greenland.Read More/Emocean: On board Rosetti's first 37.8m explorer superyacht
But her seaworthiness certainly doesn’t mean that she has skimped on superyacht style. She also offers an impressive 350 square metres of deck space with an infinity pool, bar, sunpads and an alfresco dining area on the sundeck.
There’s also space to workout using the latest gym equipment, plus a unique glass-fronted winter garden complete with heaters and a cooling mist spray that allows guests to enjoy the views whatever the weather.
Additionally, a sizeable beach club provides a launching space for her wide range of water toys, from Jet Skis and SeaBobs to scuba diving gear and e-bikes.
Below deck, there’s a formal dining room accompanied by a 150-bottle crystal wine cellar, a skylounge with a home cinema set up and a drinks bar, as well as a full-beam master suite with a private office space and balcony.Read More/The world's most eco-focused yachts
What’s special about Emocean?
A true representative of modern-day yachting, Emocean is unique for having being meticulously designed for the eco-conscious charterer. As well as boasting an extremely fuel efficient engine, Emocean embodies what her broker describes as a “full vegan ethos” – her vegan owners have ensured there are no leathers or furs in sight as nothing of animal origin is allowed on board (the only exception being that guests can bring their pets).
Instead, everything from the interior rugs to the sofa fabrics are made using recycled ocean plastic or biodegradable products. This ethos extends to the food and beverages, with no plastic water bottles allowed on board and menus created from sustainably sourced, local foods.
