The concept was developed by the British designer Peter Bolke, who based his design on so-called stealth technology, leading to the abbreviation ARV standing for “Anti Radar Vessel”. In addition to her eye-catching styling, the two and a half decks do not fail to impress. Of specific note is the generous use of glass – a feature that superyacht owners are currently favouring.
In the 50m2 Owner’s suite, which extends across the full hull width on the main deck, the windows to port and starboard are an extraordinary 4m long. In the saloon seating area, the bulwark is cut out and replaced with glass, to allow an unobstructed view of the sea from armchairs and sofas. The sundeck is also completely glazed with large windows, as too is the staircase between the main and lower deck.
In addition to the outstanding Owner’s suite, this 370-tonne superyacht has 4 spacious guest cabins located on the lower deck. There are two control stands and two side flaps in the stern to launch her 6m tender and which create a beach club.A shipyard to build the project has not yet been determined, but placement is aimed at a northern European address. After that, the final purchase price for the new Owner will depend on many factors required within the build specification.
Designer Peter Bolke, from the legendary Ed Dubois office, has worked across a wide range of innovative nautical design projects. Most recently, Peter was senior designer for the 58m sloop NGONI, creating under his own brand name, ‘Peter Bolke Design’.
