The project has been designed in collaboration with Mark Whiteley and is reportedly “ready to commence the next stage of pre-engineering,” according to the Malcolm McKeon studio.
Inspired by sailing yacht design, the MM770 is defined by a sleek profile and a largely timber-finished exterior running across five decks.
“When we design a sailing superyacht, establishing a continuous visual connection with the sea is always part of the design brief. Applying that objective to motor yacht design, we have been able to reinforce that principal in new and inspiring ways,” commented designer Malcolm McKeon.
Below deck, there are four guest suites all equipped with a private balcony as well as accommodation for up to 15 crew. The owner’s suite is located on the upper deck and features a private deck with al fresco dining, his nd hers bathrooms, a study and a personal pantry. There is also the potential to close off the aft skylounge and deck spaces for greater privacy.
Highlights on board include a cinema room, an 8.8-metre glass-bottomed pool on the main deck aft, al fresco dining, and a Jacuzzi and bar on the sun deck. Taking the elevator to the lower decks, guests will find the yacht’s wellness centre which is equipped with a gym, sauna and spa treatment roomand which leads into the beach club with its fold-down balconies.
Describing the interiors, Mark Whiteley said: “Careful consideration has gone into creating intimate spaces with their own identity and atmosphere. The aim for the interior and exterior living spaces is for the owner to feel she is a home from home on the sea, reflecting the owner’s style in a warm and modern way.’’
The yacht will be constructed to Lloyd’s registered design with a relatively narrow beam to length ratio, making it more easily driven and more fuel-efficient. It will have an internal volume 1,700GT and a top speed of 17 knots.
