This all-GRP yacht was built to Bureau Veritas Pleasure standards for a client from the Persian Gulf and the handover was completed earlier this week (October 31).
Erwin Bamps, CEO of Gulf Craft, said: “Understanding how the internal and exterior areas will be used is absolutely crucial to each project’s success. A sense of spaciousness is a hallmark of our design.” This can be seen in the choice of nine separate spaces for casual al fresco dining, as well as Bliss’s total interior volume of 290GT.
The interior décor is suitably lavish for a yacht of this size, with abalone surfaces and ebony, white oak and maple woodwork, illuminated by Savage and Cantalupi lighting. Bliss is also a truly high-tech yacht, with a state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen smart home audiovisual system and Wi-Fi connectivity throughout.
Power comes from a pair of 2,600hp MTU engines for a top speed of 22 knots and comfortable cruising at 17 knots. When trimmed back to her economical speed of 12 knots, Bliss will boast a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the UAE-based yard include the flagship Majesty 175 yacht, which is due to launch in summer 2019.
