DESIGN COMMENTS: 

31m Wavepiercer

This vessel has been designed with three variations, separately fulfilling requirements for operation in the Mediterranean, and for both tropical and temperate regions of the USA. This three and a half deck vessel is intended to fulfil the role of a high quality, private motor yacht, with the ability to operate commercially for top quality charters.

Interior arrangements on the upper level will vary depending on the configuration. The fully enclosed version permits the bridge and captain’s quarters to move to this level, leaving the next deck down clear for an enormous owner’s suite, although the upper deck could also make for a skylounge with 360 degree panoramic views. Open versions of the boat would be configured as a flybridge, with sun beds, wet bars and a Jacuzzi if preferred.

The mid or bridge deck level houses the bridge island in its forward sections, and as the main control station for the vessel incorporates twin helm seats, navigation and communications systems and major ship control functions. Guest seating is also located in the bridge which converts to an ’on watch’ berth. The captain’s double cabin with ensuite bathroom facilities is located immediately adjacent to the bridge - a useful safety feature.

A Portuguese Bridge permits foredeck access from the bridge as well as allowing crew to access the service sections of the vessel without the need to enter the accommodation areas of the vessel.

The owner’s suite occupies the entire aft sections of the bridge deck level and is designed as a multi-functional area, affording the utmost privacy for the owner, but also offering a relaxed private meeting and al fresco dining area for guests if required.

The main deck level accommodates four large guest staterooms all with king sized beds and ensuite bathrooms in the forward sections of the vessel. Further aft, access to the upper decks can be gained from a centrally located stairwell adjacent to the large galley.

Seating for ten is available in the formal dining area, which is divided from the lounge by a central island. A large al fresco dining area is located not far from here on the aft deck.

Twin curving stairways provide access from the aft deck onto the lower elevator deck, which houses the 5.5m tender and two, three man jet skis. Hydraulically actuated, the elevator deck lowers from wingdeck height 1.7m above the waterline to 1m below, allowing easy launch and retrieve of the tenders and forming an unparalleled means of access to the water for swimmers and divers.

Accommodation within the demi-hulls is provided for an engineer, a workshop and a twin guest bunkroom in the opposite demi-hull. Both cabins have adjacent toilet and shower facilities.
