Crescent Custom Yachts reveals 108 concept
by Cecile Gauert
Canadian yard Crescent Custom Yachts has revealed designs for its latest design, which will be called the Crescent 108.
Tim Charles, principal of Crescent Custom Yachts said: “I liked the fact that this was a proven hull. I’ve been keeping it warm and dry for a few years, this seems like the right time and the right use.
“Everyone is so focused on the tri-level and maximizing space, which increases crew requirements,” he added. “Having a flush deck helps to bring it back to a more active owner experience.”
The four-cabin layout puts the owner and VIP staterooms at opposite ends of the lower deck and the inside helm station adjacent to a country kitchen on the main deck.
Other key features include a curved foredeck seating area, shaded aft cockpit, and a spacious superyacht sundeck, with space aft for storing a tender via davit crane. Three large rectangular portholes should ensure plenty of natural light can penetrate through to the lower deck.
Charles adds that the finished yacht will be priced at about USD$10 million, given the current favourable exchange rate from Canadian dollars.
Other projects currently under development at Crescent Custom Yachts include the 44.2 metre Mucho Mas, which was launched last year as part of the Crescent 145 series and is due to be delivered to her owner in 2017.
