A new superyacht series named Spectral has been revealed by Christopher Seymour, in collaboration with design consultant Carl Esch.

The steel hull and aluminium superstructure series features two models, a 40 metre and 50 metre model, while plans are also underway for a 55 metre+ model. Construction would take place at the Dutch yard Balk. However, the series will sit under the Bloemsma brand as a result of Balk's recent acquisition of the company.

The 50-metre model, which features a 10-metre beam and draft of 2.7 metres, has been listed for sale by Northrop & Johnson. Northrop & Johnson Spain is also the exclusive representative for both the 40 metre and 50 metre version.

Seymour and Esch have heavily focused on providing multiple exterior entertainment spaces on board to facilitate an al fresco lifestyle while at sea. This has resulted in a private fresh water pool, unfolding bathing platform and beach club at the transom.

The aft deck can be converted into a helipad where the two 11 metre tenders can be stored while underway. The Jet Skis meanwhile can be stored inside the beach club.

The 480GT interior has been designed by Guido de Groot and features 285 square metres of living space spanning a main saloon with two fold-out balconies, formal dining area and sky-lounge. A staircase connects all three decks.

Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests and nine crew. The main deck owner’s suite includes a private office, dressing room and ensuite bathroom while the remaining guest accommodation sits on the lower deck. The crew quarters allows for a staff of nine.

The 50 metre Spectral will have a top speed of 16 knots and range of 5000 nautical miles at 12.5 knots.

The announcement of the Spectral series comes after Seymour and Esch revealed the 82 metre concept Beyond earlier this year.
