Jan Jaap Minnema at Fraser Yachts sends me a selection of pictures and specifications for his latest joint central listing, with colleague Vassilis Fotilas, the groundbreaking 44.7m motor yacht H2Ome.
Built by Italy’s MMGI yard in 2010, her exterior styling is breathtaking in its simplicity: a sleek, black hull matched to a mirrored square superstructure. With its dark reflective surfaces, this superyacht’s structure becomes almost invisible.
An interesting propulsion package comprises two1900hp Caterpillar diesels plus a centreline Vericor 5000hp gas turbine giving a cruising speed of 20 knots and a maximum speed of 40 knots. RINA classed and MCA compliant, H2Ome sleeps 10 guests in five cabins, while the July 2010 issue of Boat International called her ‘One of the most exciting superyachts on the water today.’ Available to view at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, she's asking €14.5 million.
