Video: On-board 74m Blohm+Voss superyacht Enigma
by Chris Jefferies
However, following the recent news that Enigma is for sale through Edmiston & Company, comes this revealing new video:
As the footage shows, this spectacular superyacht has lost none of her finesse and lustre in 25 years afloat. Her distinctive exterior by Martin Francis can be seen from all angles, before Enigma’s 1,150GT interiors are revealed.
Star features include the upper deck skylounge, with its superyacht gym and convex glass windows that provide exceptional views out to sea. Accommodation on board is for 15 guests, split across six cabins, including an upper deck owner’s suite and five further cabins on the main deck. Below decks, the crew quarters allow for a total staff of 21.
As well as her iconic looks, flat-out speed was another defining characteristic of Enigma and her vital stats are still impressive today. Twin Deutz diesel engines and a General Electric gas turbine drive KaMeWa water jets for a total power output of 28,500hp.
The result is a breath-taking top speed of up to 34 knots, a highly impressive fast cruising speed of 28 knots and a transatlantic range of 4,300 nautical miles at 18 knots.
Enigma was built to Lloyd’s Registry classification with a steel hull and GRP superstructure. She has undergone two major refits in 1999 and 2004 and passed her 20-year survey in 2014.
