Yacht Of The Week: Virgen del Mar VI.
There are plenty of 30-metre yachts out there, but most are production boats and none of them offer quite the same volume and degree of customisation or bespoke design features,” says Alia President, Gökhan Çelik.
Although, at 235 gross tonnes the Virgen del Mar VI is no small yacht.
Virgen del Mar VI’s owners not only wanted a spacious yacht, but one that they could take on longer voyages and spend more time on at anchor.
What we love about this yacht is the simple and highly functional deck spaces which include an outdoor navigation deck and massive built-in sunbathing lounge.
The clean lines of the exterior profile continue in all the deck areas with very little obstructions.
One level below the main deck is a second outdoor dining area, which is built into the transform structure w, this make it a perfect place to host an intamate family dinner.
British studio RWD took care of the interior of the yacht and the result show.
“The client’s brief was to create a yacht with larger than anticipated proportions in every space, using all available means to achieve that goal,” explains RWD Project Manager, Adrian Chrisnell. “This meant optimising technical spaces, using efficient joinery detailing and storage, maximizing the layout, and making the best use of light and space to simply give the impression of a bigger yacht.”
In terms of accommodation has a common layout, there is on-deck master suite and four guest staterooms (two twin and two doubles).
The master suite has direct access to the outdoors with sliding doors on either side of the cabin, allowing the owners to reach their private deck lounge on the foredeck without any fuss.
“The guest spaces themselves were optimised over a long period to ensure each was as well-organised as possible.”
