by Risa Merl
Dutch superyacht builder Hakvoort has announced a new order for a 38.25 metre superyacht.
The yacht was sold in close cooperation with Ocean Independence. Hakvoort hull YN250 will have a displacement hull shape, featuring flared V sections at the bow, large overhangs, a moderate dead rise and a canoe stern. She will be robust and ready for bluewater cruising.
The new Hakvoort yacht will provide accommodation for nine guests with a main-deck owner's suite, hosting a king-size bed and a bathroom forward. Guests are welcomed on the lower deck with en suite staterooms comprising two double guest cabins and a VIP. She will also accommodate seven crew members with crew quarters including a well-equipped mess, three cabins and well-designed access to storage and technical areas. The captain's cabin is found aft of the wheelhouse on the bridge deck.
Hakvoort has shared details of the layout, which includes an open plan main deck with a main saloon lounge with two sofas and a dining area with a table for 10 guests. The aft deck will have built in seating and a teak table. A second lounge will be found on the bridge deck, leading out to another aft deck entertaining space with an al fresco dining table seating 10. This deck also houses the main tender, while a laser sailboat and the emergency tender are stowed on the foredeck. The 38m will feature a foldout platform amidships, recessed into the side of the hull, which when open will provide access to the water for easy boarding and swimming.
Up top, the sun deck will feature room for lounging, built-in seating with another teak table, a whirlpool spa tub, a barbecue and a bar.
Hakvoort's latest superyacht is due to launch in 2017.
