IAG Yachts launches 42.67m King Baby

IAG Yachts has launched King Baby, a custom luxury yacht that started life as an idea on a napkin and will now be shown at FLIBS.

King Baby is the first hull of a new series, which began as an order for a 41.1m IAG 135 from a US client that then grew into the first of the NobleStar 140 series. The composite 42.6m with a 9m beam features naval architecture by Sergio Cutolo of HydroTec and interior by Evan K Marshall.

Speaking on the interior design back in 2013, Marshall said: "A lot of the (exterior) style has been determined by the layout. The owners are often with a group of family and friends, so there is a huge flybridge deck space to ensure there is seating not just for the full guest complement, but for additional friends and family. There’s a large area forward of the pilothouse, also for socialising."

The owners’ love of sport is reflected in multiple outdoor televisions, while a spa pool aft on the flybridge deck becomes a water feature at night, with lighting to complement an LED feature built into the mast.

In terms of interior styling: "They wanted a contemporary, refreshing interior," Marshall said, "but at the same time they wanted it to be comfortable and inviting - they didn’t want it to be too stark, too minimalist. The boat has a lot of large windows, so a lot of light floods the space and the connection with the exterior is maximised. Anything that’s adjacent to windows is relatively low to maximise the amount of light."

King Baby can sleep owners and eight guests in five cabins, while twin 2,600hp MTU engines should offer speeds over 18 knots, and a 3,000nm range at 12 knots.

She will arrive in Fort Lauderdale in September, where she will later be shown at FLIBS.
