The Milan based studio, which has recently celebrated its 15th anniversary, over the years has earned many international awards and also for this new project has not lowered the bar aiming for great quality result.“I had the pleasure to meet the passionate owner and his wife in Istanbul in the summer of 2017 and in less than an hour we agreed on all the design and contract principles” says Antonio Romano, Hot Lab co-founder. “He has owned three previous yachts and was looking for a family-oriented motoryacht for personal use and thanks to his previous experience was able to provide us with a detailed brief. This was a great help both for us and the shipyard.”Abundant walnut, macassar ebony and honey afzelia woodwork with checkerboard panels have been seamlessly combined with detailing in chrome, nacre and woven leather. The free-standing furniture is a mix of bespoke designs by Hot Lab, such as the main dining table and coffee tables, and pieces supplied by top Italian brands like Giorgetti and Minotti. The bathroom accessories are by Dornbracht and the deck furniture by Glyn Peter Machin.The layout is unusual insofar as in addition to the four lower deck guest suites (two twins and two doubles), the master stateroom overlooks the open aft deck on the upper deck.The forward main deck houses a large galley and pantry on the portside, as well as the captain’s cabin to starboard directly below the wheelhouse. The yacht accommodates 12 guests in total and 9 crew.Also unusual on a yacht of this size is the lift serving all three decks. There are full dining facilities inside and outside on the main deck, as well as under the hardtop on the sundeck and a spacious seating area in front of the wheelhouse. The tenders and toys are stored explorer-style on the open foredeck, leaving room for a beach club in the stern. It goes without saying that the crew and guest circulation on board are separated.
