(0 votes)

A new 32 meter design by Van Geest Design bases its philosophy on simplicity. The vessel was designed as a contemporary gentleman's boat. Additional characteristics are sturdiness, user friendly and easy maintenance, which will allow for a reduction in crew and lower annual running costs.


The yacht’s defined lines allow for a clean construction philosophy. The design allows for integration of combinations of steel/aluminium/composite for a flexible setup towards the Owner.

The hull will be painted in marine paint used on commercial ships. This will allow easy repairs and will therefore make it easier to moor in commercial or smaller fishing ports while exploring the globe. The superstructure, inside of the bulwarks and everything that can be ‘touched’ from deck will be painted smooth with a super yacht quality.

The deck will be a synthetic shock absorbent surface allowing freedom of tenders and toys to be stored on the aft deck and to be launched by crane.
Lounge areas provide entertaining for warm climate cruising and shelter for colder environments.


The interior has been laid out for a friendly and cozy family life style on board; allowing for each guest on board finding space to retreat to or to socialize and mingle.
There are two en-suite guest cabins mid ship on lower deck, an Owner’s state room with an office and his and hers en-suite forward on main deck. The saloon opens to the main tender deck. The dining area interacts directly with the galley for a more familiar home setup. On Bridge deck the panoramic upper saloon leads to an outdoor lounge area aft, while the Bridge forward gives clear views to the outsides and interacts directly with the foredeck.

Two to three crew members including the captain have been envisaged in this layout. The crew area is set up forward on the lower deck with two cabins, a dedicated laundry space and a crew mess.

All areas have been laid out to super yacht requirements, space and circulation to be effective and user friendly.


Choice of systems and engineering is foreseen to be simple and sturdy coming from the commercial ship/yacht industry. Solar panels on the top of the bridge deck will be integrated in the power management of the vessel.
