Golden Yachts has completed the launch of its 78-metre motor yacht O'Rea, marking the third yacht to be rolled out of the sheds at the Greek shipyard this year.
The contract for the new build was signed in 2021 with long-time Golden Yachts collaborator Stefano Vafiadis designing a contemporary plumb bow that differs from the flared bows of previous models, the likes of O'Pari and O'Ptasia, and elongated trapezium-shaped windows.
Key features of O'Rea include a large swimming pool that sits transversely on the main deck aft, with three skylights at the bottom that filter natural light through to the "beach house" waterfront lounge below. The space is complete with a "health bar" at the entrance and a lounge area with a large U-shaped sofa with a wellness centre forward.
Vafiadis also handled the yacht's interior styling in collaboration with Italian studio Massari Design, who most recently worked with the shipyard on its flagship Project X. O'Rea offers eight generous guest cabins including a large owner's cabin with an adjoined private office. More than 250 finishes, including rich materials and precious stones, have been used throughout.
“Going up the staircase that connects the various decks, one is struck by many refined details and precious materials, including polished marble steps, decorated and backlit vertical panelling, chandeliers that penetrate the stairwell from the upper deck to the main deck with a polished champagne-coloured metal structure and glass elements with three-dimensional patterns and different colour gradients,” said Studio Massari.
Elsewhere, an upper deck lounge features a piano, Lasvit glass chandelier and an extensive audio-visual system that means the space can be used for movie nights. The yacht will also be home to a collection of contemporary artwork curated by Vasilis Dragnis in collaboration with Anna Chatzinassiou.
On the technical side, O'Rea is fitted with a Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) that allows her to hold her place without dropping anchor.
Once delivered, the yacht will go on to join the charter fleet with Golden Yachts' associated brokerage firm Atalanta Golden Yachts.
O'Rea will make her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
