Featuring exterior design and naval architecture by Taka Yacht Design, Vagante is inspired by the classic Turkish gulet “but with finer lines, modern underbody, bulb keel and spade rudder.”
Built for a “young, enthusiastic couple and their family with a huge love of the sea”, Vagante was originally expected to be delivered at the end of last year. Featuring a 6.4 metre beam, Vagante will have a top speed of 10 knots under power and cruising speed of seven knots.
Her “sumptuous” interior design is being handled by Stephen Huish Yacht Design, with interior materials including bleached oak, American walnut and stainless-steel detailing.
Accommodation is for eight guests across three double ensuite cabins and a master cabin equipped with its own saloon. The crew quarters meanwhile will allow for a staff of three.
