Vanadis is proof of the adage that perfection can’t be rushed, with the exterior design decided on all the way back in 2005.
When the project restarted in 2017, that exterior remained almost untouched though one major change came with the increased hull length to accommodate the Hybrid Propulsion system which was to become so integral to this yacht’s success.
The owner had been actively seeking a refined, classical exterior style which was achieved by using lengthy, elegant curvy lines and well-balanced proportions. The increased hull length also made provision for the enlarged swimming platform which accommodated the owner’s request to have the tender placed in situ rather than losing valuable deck space.
That also necessitated the integration of a crane into the swimming platform in the interests of efficiency while another request was incorporated in the addition of a large sunbathing area in the foredeck.
Safety onboard is evidenced throughout with a large number of railings and grab points. The main design evolution however, took place in the form of the flybridge layout and selection of loose furniture. A second pilot station can be found on the flybridge; an area designed chiefly for relaxation and including a bar, sun loungers and dining area.
