With the increased market emphasis on improving efficiency, we based the T2 design on a longer, lower platform that still remains under the 500GT limit. The longer waterline length allows for higher displacement speeds, with lower fuel consumption; whilst reducing the height improves stability. The motion is more comfortable, with less reliance on active stabilisation and the yacht is simply more pleasant to be aboard. It’s a win-win-win.
The result is a dramatic looking yacht where indoor / outdoor living is the driving force behind the design. There are a variety of spaces that open up to give a connection to the sea that is often missing in larger yachts. In the full-beam main saloon, for instance, the little balconies that are becoming increasingly common these days are eschewed in favour of almost full height windows, that slide back to completely open the interior to the outside. An expansive “beach club”, a second open-air saloon on the upper deck and a foredeck spa / lounge, ensure that there will always be a perfect spot for every occasion.
The Master Suite is located a half deck down from the Main Saloon and enjoys the full width of the vessel, with his and hers bathrooms, separated by an enormous walk-in robe. Aft and down a few more steps are four en-suite guest cabins. All feature large windows and extensive storage, ensuring that guests will enjoy a comfortable stay.
The crew are equally well catered for, with four much larger than usual en-suite cabins, a private lounge and galley facilities. From here there is also access to a cavernous lower deck storage space: evidence that this is a yacht designed by and for experienced owners. Further evidence of this is to be found in the galley, which is located immediately up and forward of the Main Saloon. This is surely a chef’s dream come true… instead of the usual cramped facilities, the galley is not only larger than the norm (with yet another large store room) but features direct access to the decks and all of the entertainment spaces. It even has a view!
With the extensive range of tenders and toys in the water, the upper deck is simply enormous. The aforementioned second saloon opens onto this, and like the main, can be opened up completely on three sides for what must surely be the ultimate place to enjoy an alfresco breakfast. Or, if you prefer the view looking forward, there is an open air bridgedeck that features a second helm.
