Conrad Shipyard's flagship superyacht Ace has been completed and handed over to her owner after a two-year build and successful sea trials in the Baltic Sea. The 44.3-metre yacht holds the title of the largest superyacht to be built in Poland and her interiors have now been revealed for the first time.
Ace was commissioned by a Swiss owner, who was introduced to the shipyard by the Luxury Charter Group, and began construction in summer 2020. She is the first in Conrad's C144S line and surpasses the shipyard's previous flagship Viatoris by 4.5 metres in length.
An exterior profile by British studio Reymond Langton, in collaboration with Dutch-based Diana Yacht Design and the yard’s in-house team, features black deckhouses, a band of glazing in the hull and a straight bow. “Our signature undercut “rolling wave” on the superstructure reflects the sky above and the water below, simultaneously casting captivating shadows on the decks as the sun moves across the sky," said a representative of Reymond Langton.
Her interior is the work of Milan-based firm M2 Atelier and is based on a “less is enough'' philosophy according to the studio. Only a select few materials were chosen including teak wood, Lasa marble, grey leather, light-coloured fabrics and dark metal accents.
The main saloon is a vast and well-lit space with three sofas designed to give the impression of being suspended above the ground while floor-to-ceiling windows create the feeling of space. Above, the bridge deck features an asymmetrical lounge complete with an L-shaped sofa and a bookcase that conceals a large-screen TV behind a panel.
The master suite is home to a king-size bed with suspended bedside tables and mirrored glass built into the ceiling to create the feeling of space. The full-beam master bathroom is finished in white Lasa marble, equipped with two monolithic sinks and a central walk-in shower. Four guest staterooms, all with en suite bathrooms, are found on the lower deck.
Meanwhile, her outdoor decks comprise a beach club, four lounge areas, an outdoor cinema set-up, two bars and two dining areas with an infinity pool on the top deck. A transverse garage can hold a seven-metre tender alongside two Jet Skis and Sea Bobs.
She has been built in steel and aluminium and is equipped with twin CAT engines delivering a top speed of 13.8 knots and a range of approximately 5,100 nautical miles when travelling at 10 knots. Construction is already underway on the second hull with delivery scheduled for 2023, while the third hull is currently listed for sale with Denison Yachting.
Yacht consulting and project management firm Nicola Nicolai acted as the owner’s pre-purchase advisor and oversaw the build as the owner’s representative and project manager.
