The highly-anticipated compact explorer Project Fox has been launched. She will now enter her final phases of construction, including commissioning, final outfitting and sea trials, with delivery scheduled for May 2024.

The 35-metre yacht “represent[s] the very best of British engineering and interior design,” according to a representative from Falmouth’s Pendennis yard. Interior and exterior styling is from Q London.

Key features include an expansive open aft deck, measuring 103.5 square metres and capable of storing a pair of 7.5-metre tenders – plus the option of Jet Skis, quad bikes and "even a sub, should the new owner wish". The yacht does not have an ice-class hull but as Burgess broker Ian Sherwood pointed out, "it’ll take you on some pretty wild and wacky adventures".

The yacht's interior is cool-toned and contemporary

"You don’t have to spend an 80-metre budget to have a yacht that will take you to interesting places," said Sherwood. "[Project Fox] is not only a platform that’s going to take you to those destinations, it’s the platform that’s going to facilitate your enjoyment when you get there. Whether you want to carry a sub or two big tenders, whether you’re into diving – the boat can be configured to suit the passion and the sense of adventure that the client has."

Q London has focused on creating a pared back and neutral interior that will appeal to a range of potential owners. The plan is to focus on "clean lines on the outside of the boat to run through the interior, which then allows a client to come on board with any artwork, soft furnishings, light fittings and ultimately create a personal stamp themselves," explained James Ratcliffe, managing partner of Q London.

Underfoot, the yacht will have Chevron oak flooring on the interior and a unique teak substitute on the exterior decks. The brand is Tesumo and it has almost all of the same properties as real teak, without the environmental footprint.

The skylounge can function as an office, games room or additional saloon

Accommodation is offered for ten guests in five en suite cabins, with two double-twin convertibles and two full-beam master suites. Other crowd-pleasing features include a DJ station, glass-walled sky lounge and dedicated wine fridge.

Project Fox will be exploring new horizons soon

The various applications of the yacht are being carefully considered by the design team. Project Fox might one day be a charter fleet favourite, a loyal support vessel or a diligent scientific research boat. Ultimately though, her team thinks she’ll suit a younger buyer with a family looking to take their first leap into yachting.

Project Fox is asking €17,000,000.
