Expedition yacht Far Far Away launched by Inace
by Raphael Montigneaux
The first pictures of the new expedition yacht built by Brazilian shipyard Inace arrived last night. Christened Far Far Away (hull 576), the 36.57 metre steel and aluminium motor yacht was spotted during her preliminary sea trials.
Inace's new flagship Far Far Away is designed by Luiz de Basto. His design gives a modern touch to the traditional expedition yacht profile, while retaining its essential features - a robust bow, a large area forward with a 2-ton crane to store two sizeable tenders and large volumes for long-range cruises.
The spacious interior, also designed by Luiz de Basto, accommodates 10 guests on the lower deck in five cabins comprising a full-beam master suite and two double and two twin guest cabins.
Far Far Away is powered by twin Caterpillar engines giving a top speed of 13 knots, a cruising speed of 11 knots and a range of 6,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Once she has completed her sea trials Far Far Away will be delivered to her owner this summer.
