Striking design update for Royal Huisman Dart 80 motor yacht

Striking design update for Royal Huisman Dart 80 motor yacht

Royal Huisman has released the latest eye-catching design for their 80 metre motor yacht known as the Dart 80. The project, initially introduced at the Monaco yacht show in 2013, is a result of collaboration between Royal Huisman and Winch Design.

The design for the Dart 80 is inspired by the marine world and Dutch superyacht builder Royal Huisman has said the profile reflects the arc of a leaping dolphin.

Winch Design presents a lightweight, long range, high performance motor yacht built from aluminium. Energy efficient and cost-effective, the yard hopes to entice potential owners with an advanced power and propulsion system.

Microturbine power generation, azimuth thrusters and advanced energy storage would provide a quiet and vibration-free experience, while the Dart 80 would still be capable of an estimated 19 knots. Royal Huisman has said that conventional diesel powered main engines are also available.

Perhaps the most prominent feature of the design is the expansive stepped aft deck, which provides easy access to the water via a 5.5 metre infinity pool. Thanks to a draft of only three metres, guests can enjoy the shallow waters of their favourite Caribbean island as the Dart 80 safely anchors close to shore.

The sun deck boasts an area for relaxing with a jacuzzi and a carbon fibre hard top. There is also the option to have a raised bridge to maximise views when sailing. Two custom 10 metre tenders are stored under the foredeck where there is a touch and go helipad.

Winch Design is also responsible for the interior. On the main deck a sheltered area for relaxing and dining gives way to a VIP and then a full beam Master suite. Six further guest cabins on the lower deck provide total accommodation for up to 16 guests.

The designers have come up with an interesting plan to spread the engine room out on the tank deck. This means there is space on the lower deck not only for all six guest cabins but also for a dedicated cinema, together with beach club, spa and gym which lead out onto the terraced aft deck.
