Proship, the cutting edge Italian design and engineering team, announces three new luxury motor yachts, to be built at a Chinese shipyard in Qingdao. The sporty 48’ open tender, the ALPHA 75, a displacement power yacht, and the KHARIMA 81, an energy efficient power catamaran, are each developed to target the affluent and expanding Asian yacht market.
Design on all three new vessels is by Architect Antonio Luxardo, whose goal is to combine technology and functionality without compromise to elegance and comfort. The dynamic 45-foot open tender features a multi purpose aft deck space with open bulwark on the stem that allows for a sprawling terrace at sea. Twin Volto Penta D6 – 435hp IPS600 engines power the boat to 40 km/h.
The graceful ALPHA 75 is designed with a rounded bow in contrast to sharp edges, to create an Asian flair specifically intended to appeal to Far Eastern consumers. The unusual interior layout features two main salons. The first is located on the main deck and directly connects to the aft deck equipped with dining table for eight guests. The well-equipped galley is on the same deck.
The second salon is on the lower deck, which also offers two guest rooms and the owner’s cabin with an ensuite bathroom and sauna. Crew accommodations are on stern deck with autonomous entrance.
The KHARIMA 81, designed for an Asian client, features two decks and a flybridge offering large volumes in living and cabin areas. Outdoor areas are designed for socializing and enjoying panoramic views. The flybridge features comfortable sofas, a bar and seating area, partially protected by a semi retractable top. On the aft deck two side open-out beach platforms extend exterior space and provide easy access to the water.
The main deck provides a stunning 110 square-metre open living space that includes the main saloon, dining area and state of the art wheelhouse. The master suite is located in the bow on the main deck and features spectacular views through a surround of large windows, which can be screened off by innovative sliding panels. The balcony can be partitioned as a little lounging or sunbathing area for additional privacy. The lower deck consists of two ensuite double guest cabins, a professional galley, and crew accommodations.
