Dutch shipyard St Barth Yachting has launched the first unit in its 25.8-metre series, the St-Barth 85 Fly. Built on speculation, the yacht is scheduled for delivery in 2024 with Moravia Yachting appointed as central agent.
The yard began construction in September 2023 and the yacht, which registers under 24 metres, is described by the broker as appealing "to owners who like to helm themselves, and those looking to benefit from her charter potential." It will be built in aluminium to a design by Dutch studio AR Design with naval architecture completed by Wijk Yacht Creations.
Accommodation is for eight guests across five cabins, including a full-beam master cabin, a VIP, two guest doubles and an additional crew or guest cabin. The main saloon will feature an open-plan lounge and galley and many of the onboard systems will be controllable via an app on guests' phones or tablets.
Interior renderings reveal a monochromatic colour scheme with curved furniture lines, integrated lighting and glossy, marbled surfaces. The extent of owner customisation will be dependent on the acquisition time.
On-deck highlights include a spacious flybridge, a seating area and Jacuzzi on the bow and a four-metre swim platform. The yacht will also be equipped with a Teppanyaki grill, two barbecues, drinks fridges and wine coolers, providing ample opportunities for entertainment.
Powered by twin Volvo Penta engines, the St-Barth 85 Fly can reach a maximum speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots. A draft of 1.5 metres will enable it to navigate shallow anchorages and bays, such as in the Bahamas and Caribbean.
The St-Barth 85 Fly is asking €6,995,000 with Moravia Yachting.
