Aquastar reveals new 22 metre luxury yacht concept by Design Unlimited
by Risa Merl
Aquastar Luxury Yachts has revealed the design for its new 22.86 metre Aquastar 75 luxury yacht.
Designed by well-known UK-based studio Design Unlimited, the 74 is the evolution of Aquastar's successful 74 model, which the Channel Islands-based yacht builder has been producing for 10 years.
Design Unlimited, who showed a 50 metre superyacht concept at last year's Monaco boat show, has given the Aquastar 75 a contemporary interior and a new layout that boasts spacious cabins and comfortable helm areas. While the motor yacht will be finished in the same distinctive white and navy paint as the Aquastar 74, this new larger model will feature a modern exterior.
With a 5.86 metre beam and 1.67 metre draught, the Aquastar 75 will be built to be easily handled by two people using remote controlled hydraulic bow and stern thrusters. The bathing platform will be hydraulically operated, offering easy access to the sea and tenders.
The luxury yacht will be fitted with full Sleipner stabilizers and will have a fuel capacity of over 9,000 litres. She will be powered by twin Caterpillar C18 1,150hp engines and is expected to have a cruising speed of 24 knots.
