Timber titans: 7 of the best wooden superyachts

Timber titans: 7 of the best wooden superyachts

1 of 7 1/7


Wooden construction is the most traditional of boatbuilding methods, dating back thousands of years, and there are still several notable examples of wooden superyachts cruising the world’s oceans today.

The 38.75 metre Fundamental (ex-Alyssa) is a cold-moulded wooden motor yacht which embraces minimalist beauty. Delivered in 2014 by Turkish builder Tansu, she can accommodate up to eights guests and five crew members.

At the request of the owner, she was intended to evoke a casual, beach club feel. The lifeguard huts and laid-back culture of South Beach in Miami inspired the finishing touches of her interior. Her wooden superstructure, reinforced with epoxy, harmoniously compliments her beach house style. Tansu aimed to focus on al fresco entertaining, devoting considerable space to her outside deck and lounging areas. This classic and comfortable design favours simplicity over ornamentation and her light weight means that she can reach a top speed of 21 knots.
