Erdevicki issues challenge to complete superyacht Durabo
by Malcolm MacLean
Adrenalin Marine in Canada started work in 2009 on a 33.63m all-aluminium sailing yacht called Durabo to a design by Ivan Erdevicki, but the deepening financial crisis halted construction and she is currently mothballed.
The client has now agreed that the design can be offered to other interested maxi yacht enthusiasts so Erdevicki Inc. has issued a challenge to potential clients to save on design costs and build the boat. Designed to be built in aluminium with a carbon fibre mast, Durabo features a bulbous hydraulically lifting keel, dual rudders and a reverse transom incorporating a tender garage and doubling as a beach club.
The deck forward is uncluttered with all hatches and equipment flush mounted, while the deckhouse is a piece of art, almost entirely enclosed in glass.
Below, there is a generous full width owner’s luxury suite aft and five spacious double guest cabins to the fore, together with a library and lower deck salon and an impressive galley. The main saloon is in the deckhouse with 280º panoramic view glass windows and a gallery-type open area aft with plenty of space for entertaining and leisure.
