The 63m 11/11 features a plumb bow, which will ensure improved performance. Her layout favours two owner's cabins, one on the full beam main deck and the second on the upper deck, with private access to the pool and solarium deck. The four guest cabins are on the lower deck, each with its own en suite washroom.
Two CAT 3512C engines, generating 1350kW each, produced a top speed of 17 knots during her first preliminary sea trials. And notably she also features 46 lights placed below the waterline of the superyacht.
The steel and aluminum FB255 M/Y Formosa features five decks, a 60m LOA, a beam of 10.6m and a displacement of 1,060GT.
The guest area's layout and design were created by Sinot Design, in close collaboration with the owner. There are five suites for 10 guests on board, with a complete deck given over to the owner's apartment. The yacht also accommodates 14 crewmembers.
She is propelled by twin MTU 12V4000 M53 engines of 1,380kW, at 1.800rpm, with a top speed of 16 knots, and a cruising speed of 15 knots. At 12 knots the FB255 has a range of 5,000 nautical miles.
BF 203 M/Y H is the third yacht of the Fast Displacement Veloce 140’ series and is characterised by its trademark D2P hull design. This is typified by the 'Wave Piercer' - a bulb mounted on the bow that comes into play when the yacht reaches 17 or 18 knots. The Wave Piercer travels just below the surface at slow speed, but once the vessel reaches the proper speed, it increases the effective waterline length, giving the yacht better performance and efficiency by around 10 per cent.
H is equipped with twin five-blade propellers and twin power plants generating 2,580kW each, with a straight propeller shaft configuration.
The BF 203 M/Y's internal layout offers four guest cabins – two with twin beds and two queen size – on the lower deck, while the owner's apartment is forward on the main deck. On the same deck is the main salon with bar zone and bridge, all with lateral panoramic windows.
The dining area, with a large expandable table, is on the upper deck together with a second salon. There are two sunbathing areas: forward of the upper deck, with Jacuzzi, and one that is the complete length of the sun deck, with a corner bar.
