Here at Boatbookings we like to think we have an eye for the most beautifully designed yachts on the charter market, whether they’re weird and wonderful or beautifully traditional. Our favourite interior so far has been on SEALYON, for more information see our blog article. Today we’re focusing on clever and practical, which brings us to the fantastic luxury crewed power catamaran QUARANTA. Built by the Curvelle shipyard in 2013, her exterior lines ooze modernity and a certain futuristic style rarely seen on the sea. She won the Best Catamaran award at The World Superyacht Awards 2014.
From the aft, QUARANTA resembles the classic tri-deck monohull motor yacht style, offering voluminous shaded deck spaces for dining and relaxing. Her flybridge offers all the dining, sunbathing and jacuzzi amenities found on a 50 metre motor yacht. The first difference you notice is her Limousine tender suspended on a hydraulic platform, an excellent idea for keeping dry and dropping smoothly and stylishly into the water. This platform doubles up as a sunbathing “beach club” area as well as providing a “bubbles and waterfalls spa effect” when partially submerged.
As well as all this outside, QUARANTA also has 6 cabins, comfortably accommodating 12 guests. All very standard you might think, but she actually has over 20 possibilities for cabin layouts due to her cabins being convertible from twin, to double and even to triple for kids. All the cabins have large windows, bringing in floods of natural light and making all the spaces feel bright, positive and sociable.
QUARANTA provides all of the above as well as an excellent crew led by Captain Paul Fraser and a vast selection of water toys. She does all this, and manages to provide space of a 40 metre plus yacht in just 34 metres! This clever and efficient design is available this summer in the East Mediterranean with prices ranging from just €125,000 per week to €145,000 per week high season.
