Ruea Yachts 75m...

Design

Another Design Unlimited concept for the Thai yard.

APRIL 2011

Following their partnership in 2010 on a 60m (197ft) motoryacht, the UK’s Design Unlimited studio has once again teamed up with Thai yard Ruea Yachts and British naval architecture/engineering specialist BMT Nigel Gee to extend the concept into a 75m (246ft) version.
This new 75m (246ft) design is optimised for bluewater cruising. Features include extensive covered outside areas that flow easily and naturally into the spacious interiors; this is important in South‐East Asian waters, where the tropical climate allows for year‐round cruising amid hot conditions 24 hours a day. In these circumstances the exterior spaces form an integral component of the living space, and so have been designed to combine comfort and amenities with protection from the overhead sun.
Another design element that is favoured by yacht owners in the region is the helicopter landing pad that retracts into a dedicated hangar at the stern. With frequent, short breaks a popular way of taking leisure time in South-East Asia, this gives owners and guests easy and convenient access to and from the yacht at all times and wherever its location.
The accommodation extends across three decks with the owners’ stateroom complete with studio and balcony on the main deck along with the main saloon, a guest double with bathroom and a cinema. The lower deck has four further en‐suite double guest cabins, plus the galley and crew quarters, which comprise eight twins and a double for the chief engineer.
Above the main deck the wheelhouse deck includes a sky lounge and the captain’s cabin and office, together with the steering position. Finally the sun deck has a plunge pool/Jacuzzi, sauna and gym, alongside extensive seating and sun-lounging areas.
