Nauta Yachts presents 78m concept with "island" beach club
by Miranda Blazeby
An expanding beach club dubbed “The Island” is the star attraction of a new 78 metre superyacht concept presented by Nauta Yachts.
Designed inside and out by Nauta, the 78.4 metre superyacht design features “long overhangs and an extensive use of glass” and reflects the studio’s “trademark preference for clean, uncluttered design.”
Its key feature is an expansive beach club aft, which features glazed transom doors, a bar, underwater “nemo lounge” and port and starboard opening terraces.
These terraces, combined with a walkway and fold-down bulwarks transform the aft deck into a 280 square metre terrace, which Nauta calls “The Island”.
Integrated into the aft deck is a salt-water swimming pool for children and guests more comfortable with sheltered bathing. The pool can also be incorporated into the rest of the deck when not in use via a hydraulic mechanism which raises the pool’s teak bottom to sit flush.
Accommodation on board is for a total of 12 guests and 23 crew, with the upper deck completely dedicated to the owner’s accommodation.
The owner’s suite has direct access to the touch and go helipad and features a king size bed, private saloon and wrap around full height windows. It is also equipped with a private foredeck, which includes a Jacuzzi and “infinity nest” relaxation area.
The yacht also has enough storage of a nine metre RIB, 10 metre limousine tender as well as a range of water toys such as Seabobs, sailing dhingies and kayaks.
