Overview: The project was developed for an owner keen to explore a number of lateral thinking possibilities within a highly efficient, sleek 100m displacement motor yacht.
The accommodation brief was ambitious, even for a 100m yacht, and particularly so for a low profile, streamlined and elegant yacht: The owner required a full helicopter hangar, a handsome size swimming pool and gymnasium convertible to a disco, a full blown cinema and a dedicated owner’s deck.

The Freivokh team proposed an unusual solution aimed at creating a spectacular guest space which required less internal volume compared with the typical Superyacht array of multiple similar saloons located on every deck. Instead, the Stealth design allocates maximum resources and volume to a single, amazing double height saloon including a library, office and corporate amenities on an open plan mezzanine. All guest areas overlook the aft terraces and water features which have been developed as the key focal point, whilst the helicopter hangar, tender garages and shell doors have been sited at the optimum location for launching and recovery.

Whilst the unusual solution creates a particularly attractive area aft, a Superyacht is expected to cater for a variety of interests at all times. Sporting and intense activity areas are best kept apart from the aft terraces associated with less frenetic activities, so a new area has been set up forward of the bridge, designed to be well sheltered, to incorporate a very acceptable size swimming pool with a current generator, and a handsome gymnasium which opens to the pool. To create the right backdrop, there is a waterfall feature which leads to the elevated deck over the helicopter hangar.

The unique approach does not limit itself to rationalising the different areas – there is extensive use of half levels within the open plan layout, so the transition between the various guest areas is a gradual and interesting sequence, rather than the more usual corridors and segregated stairs.

Placing the helipad and hangar forward may be the ideal solution to avoid interfering with guest enjoyment of the areas forward and aft of the main superstructure, but potentially would mean that the landing pad is simply not wide enough. To overcome this, the Freivokh team has designed the deck to hinge out, which in turn allows the hangar sole to rise level with the hinge-out sections, creating an excellent landing facility which exceeds the stipulated requirements. The forward mast is a telescopic structure, which fully retracts when the helipad is about to be used.

The cinema, placed at tank top level includes an underwater viewing area to enhance even further the scope of enjoyable features available to the guests. Further, the extensive tender garage has been designed to house a pair of 10m Pascoe tenders in addition to a 6.2m general purpose Pascoe shuttle and a 6.2m SOLAS Pascoe rescue boat. The shell doors hinge out to create further beach and landing areas both sides.

The yacht has been designed to maximise waterline length, with an aggressive sectional reverse bow and extended aft platform, optimising displacement speeds and efficiency.

Overview: A totally unique superyacht, with panoramic windows, shell doors, in-out swimming pool. This yacht has a generous pool, extended at the infinity end by a decorative waterfall and equipped with a current generator. There is the option of a rising pool floor to extend available deck for banquets and parties.

The dining room caters for up to 20 guests in banquet configuration. Additionally, there is a smaller dining area catering for up to 12 guests, and set-up to double as a conference area. Both these facilities are available at the main deck adjacent to a dedicated library and writing room/IT room.

The yacht is equipped with a variety of offices, including a ship’s office, owner office, guest writing room and adjoining secretary’s room, ship’s office communications and navigation, staff office, etc.

There is a dedicated cinema room which can convert to an additional private saloon.

In addition to a spectacularly large guest gymnasium surrounding the glass walls of the transparent pool sides, there are steam room, sauna, massage, hair and nail and medical facilities, as well as “his and hers” changing areas. Further, there is a dedicated crew gymnasium.

There is a helipad facility at the foredeck.

The yacht has a total of 11 double guest cabins, so potentially can cater for up to 22 guests. The owner’s cabin is sited in an exclusive owner’s deck, and enjoys his and hers changing rooms and bathrooms, as well as a private owner’s lounge. There is also a spectacular full beam VIP cabin with his and hers changing rooms and bathrooms. Six of the guest cabins can be consolidated, such that rather than just a cabin with attached ensuite bathroom, they would also end up with an integral private saloon and additional his or hers ensuite bathroom. All other guest cabins also have generous ensuite bathrooms. Additionally, there are 14 double crew cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, catering for up to 28 crew.

In addition to the pool, there is a spectacular hot tub/Jacuzzi at the owner’s deck, as well as a further Jacuzzi within the VIP quarters.

This quite unique yacht was conceived by Ken Freivokh Design in response to an enquiry from Dunya Yachts with the stated intent of achieving the optimum layout and facilities possible at the size whilst retaining a strong and bold appearance quite distinct from the current crop of more conventional yachts in the 85 to 95m bracket.

The purposeful look is a direct result of developing large panoramic glass on key internal spaces, to achieve a powerful balance between the steel structure and the transparency of the glazed curtain walls and bulwarks.

The yacht has been conceived to truly open to the sea – key real estate areas at the lower decks are devoted to the enjoyment of the water, garaging of an amazing collection of tenders and toys, large expanses of beach and gym facilities which open on all sides with shell doors creating extended bathing platforms – all surrounding an all glass swimming pool spanning two decks.

Whilst handsome guest facilities have been created to offer a wide variety of saloons, conference areas, office and IT dedicated areas, secretarial facilities and entertainment and sport areas over two decks, the higher decks provide a number of more private saloons and finally, the owners enjoy a 100% private top deck, with 360 degree views all round. The owners stateroom is completely private, enjoying forward and side views, whilst the associated owner and family saloon opens to a private deck aft. A further saloon can be accessed at bridge deck level.
In addition to 13m and 10m Pascoe limousine tenders, there is also provision for a Pascoe 7.5m tender and 6.2m rescue and utility tender, in addition to garaging for jetskis and other water toys. The transport facilities are further enhanced by a helipad forward and more than 50m of docking facilities which make this unique yacht a great entertainment and partying platform.
Technically, the yacht is a veritable tour de force, with dedicated computer and monitoring areas, and the efficient propulsion package provides excellent speed and range, further enhance by the extended waterline length extended by the elegant and purposeful plumb bow.
