Inace reveals more details of FHI 115 yacht concept
by Chris Jefferies
This 35 metre design features an almost vertical prow, ensuring a notably high interior volume for its length. The new renderings include light grey topsides, which contrast with the dark blue finish originally proposed back in November 2017, although the red waterline stripe has been retained.
Accommodation is for up to ten guests split across five en-suite staterooms including a full-beam master suite that is situated on the main deck and boasts a walk-in wardrobe.
Below decks, two double cabins and two twin cabins complete the guest accommodation, while the crew area in the bow allows for a staff of up to five people (the captain's quarters are on the bridge deck, bringing the total to six crew). Key features include the hydraulic transom platform, which allows easy access to the water for taking a swim and launching superyacht water toys.
Moving forward and the sheltered cockpit offers an ideal spot for enjoying a light meal al fresco with a C-shaped wrap of bench seating and three armchairs. The saloon on the Inace FHI 115 is open-plan with two L-shaped sofas back aft and a circular dining table that can seat up to eight guests amidships.
Warming woodwork and neutral-coloured furnishing creates a relaxed vibe, with nautical coloured throw pillows providing pops of colour, while eye-catching artwork dominates the dining area.
The upper deck aft is left bare for storing a 6.2 metre RIB tender, while a sliding door leads through into the skylounge with its large television — ideal for hosting movie nights on board. A foredeck seating area allows guests to relax away from prying eyes when moored stern-to and the bow has been designated as water toy storage space with room for a pair of Jet Skis. The superyacht sundeck completes the layout with sunpads, armchairs, sunloungers and an upper helm position.
The engine installation is still undisclosed, but the Inace FHI 115 has been designed around a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles.
