Ruea Yachts’ 60m six-deck motoryacht concept...

Design

The design will be showcased on the Design Unlimited stand on ‘Designers’ Row’ at the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show.

JUNE 2010

Ruea Yachts is the new-build division of Yacht Solutions.
The proven-platform naval architecture for this 60m (197ft) concept comes from BMT Nigel Gee and exterior and interior styling from Design Unlimited.
This yacht has been conceived for tropical cruising. Note the extensive covered external areas, which provide plenty of shade, and her considerable range; yachts cruising in such waters need to cover large distances between refuelling stops. At her cruising speed of 12 knots she has a range of nearly 5,000nm, but bursts of up to 16 knots are possible.
"The combination of cutting edge design and architecture, courtesy of our European partners, and the superb Thai craftsmen we have at our shipyard in Bangkok, we believe will be an enticing proposition for superyacht aficionados,” says Ruea Yacht’s managing director Gareth Twist. “They will discover not only a stunning vessel, but one that is extremely affordable when compared to western yards, and all without compromising on quality.”
