Hakvoort has secured a new order for a 38.25m superyacht, sold through Ocean Independence.

Designed with a displacement-type hull shape, YN250 will feature flared V-sections in the bow, large overhangs, a moderate deadrise amidships and a canoe stern. Suitable for global bluewater cruising, the yacht will provide accommodation for nine guests and seven crewmembers and is scheduled to be launched in 2017.

Located on the main deck, the owner’s suite will include a stateroom with a king-size bed and bathroom forward. The main lounge will contain two sofas in an open plan arrangement with the dining area, which will centre on a table for 10 guests.


The open aft area will have built-in seating with a large teak table. A foldout platform amidships will be recessed into the side the hull giving access to the water for boarding and swimming.

On the bridge deck is another lounge, which leads out on to an open aft area with al fresco dining table for 10 guests. The aft deck also houses the main tender while the fore deck will feature a laser sailboat and the MOB tender. The captain’s cabin will be located aft of the wheelhouse.

Ensuite accommodations can be found on the lower deck, which will contain two double guest staterooms and a VIP stateroom. Crew quarters include a well-equipped mess, three comfortable cabins and connections to storage areas and technical spaces.

The sun deck will feature a wealth of open space for sunbathing as well as additional seating. A large whirlpool bathtub forward will be able to accommodate four to six people and a BBQ grill will be installed in the bar.

Naval architecture, construction and engineering design for this project is courtesy of Diana Yacht Design, which has been given the brief to optimise technical accessibility and keep maintenance requirements to a minimum. The interior design will be from the drawing boards of Felix Buytendijk.
