CCN gives construction update on 37m DOM 123 superyacht
The DOM 123, which was unveiled at the Versilia Yachting Rendezvous in Viareggio in May last year, is currently on track for a summer 2020 delivery.
Designed by Stefano Vafiadis, the DOM 123 is the first of a new line of boats and is inspired by the Latin word "domus", meaning home. It is designed to appeal to the lifestyle of a modern, young yacht owner, providing equal measures of homely comfort and Italian style.
The DOM 123 has an aluminium semi-displacement hull and will be equipped with two 16V 2000 M96L engines of 1,939kW each.
The bulbous hull is designed to optimise performance and cruising comfort. This design has been tested by the Brodarsky Institute of Zagreb. The DOM 123 will be capable of a cruising speed of 12 knots, which will deliver a range of up to 3,000km.
With a beam of 8.7 metres, the DOM 123 will provide bountiful living spaces, including a main deck saloon and dining room for 10.
The skylounge above can easily transform into a cinema, and a large, sliding glass door will connect this area with fresh air, panoramic views and al fresco seating for 10-12 guests at a round table.
The crew quarters includes full size pantries on the upper and main deck, in addition to the professional galley on the main deck. The captain's cabin will be set on the upper deck while the rest of the crew accommodations are found on the lower deck, adjacent to a crew mess and laundry room.
Exterior living spaces are designed to suit the home-style brief, creating living areas ideal for both entertaining and relaxing. The large sundeck, accessed by a central staircase, will have a modern, square-shaped spa tub.
The six metre tender is stowed in a purpose-designed garage, while Jet Skis and toys are stowed in the foredeck. Meanwhile, the beach club is revealed when the large swim platform folds down.
