Even though this is not a high-performance cruiser, its exterior was designed by Philippe Briand, a French designer with vast experience in racing yacht designs. Its name is Vertigo and it boasts a rather sporty look, even though elegance was not completely ruled out of the design concept. The cockpit, for instance, is chic and ideal for socialization in an intimate environment. It features two dining lounge, both with an informal and very welcoming designs. The bow area sports large curved windows (the largest measures 3.6 meters/11.81 feet) that allow for wonderful unobstructed views.
As far as accommodations go, the vessel is absolutely perfect. It features 3 double cabins, one twin cabin, and a full-beam master suite with excellent amenities. The staff quarters are separated from the rest of the arrangement by the miderette and engine room. The rooms are minimalist in design, with dark wood, lacquered surfaces, and other such touches of luxury. All interiors were designed by the Christian Liaigre design team, who were given carte blanche for this project.
The main living area spans 30 meters, from the cockpit entrance to the wheelhouse. It includes the open-plan saloon, and a 12-person dining area that offers direct access to an open-day galley. The owner specifically asked for a design that would not intimidate the guest, but rather encourage a laid back attitude and a carefree lifestyle. “You certainly don’t want to feel intimidated, or that you can’t touch anything. If it felt like a museum, that would be horrible”, he said. Completed in 2011, the yacht is exactly what its owner wanted it to be.
