Gresham Yacht Design unveils 90m Fincantieri concept Sundance
by Chris Jefferies
Developed in collaboration with interior designers Seymour Diamond, Sundance features long and low lines that flow effortlessly from bow to stern.
Designed to be built to Lloyds and LY3 standards, this concept is centred around a full-beam main saloon, with outboard angled windows and a skylight that connects this area with the sundeck.
Exterior relaxation spaces are plentiful, with a 10 metre swimming pool and a shaded 12-person dining table on the upper deck. The three Jacuzzis on board Sundance are split across the sky deck, aft deck and beach club, with the latter two connected by a waterfall. The relaxation theme continues in the 155 square metre on-board spa that includes a sauna, hammam and massage room.
The foredeck features a touch-and-go superyacht helipad, suitable for landing a Eurocopter EC135, while the garage could house a pair of 10 metre limousines, a 7.5 metre crew tender and four Jet Skis.
Sundance’s interiors total 3,000 GT, making good use of her 15.05 metre beam and five decks, with accommodation space for 14 guests, split across the owner’s stateroom, two VIP cabins and four more guest cabins. The crew quarters allow for a total staff of up to 30.
Other key features include a fully-enclosed superyacht gym that provides panoramic views, wine cellar, on-board hospital, and a private cinema with seating for up to ten people.
Power would come from a pair of 3,915hp MTU diesel engines for a top speed of around 18.5 knots. When trimmed back to 14 knots, Sundance would have a maximum cruising range of 6,000 nautical miles.
