Hong Kong shipyard Pride Megayachts have unveiled two new superyacht concepts at MYS designed in collaboration with Dubai-based yacht designer Cyrille Bieri.
The larger of the two – a 95m steel-hulled vessel provisionally called Red Star – looks well-proportioned, dynamic, and uncluttered. With a beam of 15.4m and draft of 4m, Red Star will certainly offer owners and guests an acreage of space to relax and enjoy life at sea.
Aboard, the penta-deck superyacht will accommodate (including owners) up to 20 guests. The main deck will house all VIP and guest cabins, each with en-suite, and each richly decorated in exotic marbles and featuring hand-carved bathtubs. The master-stateroom, located on the upper deck, benefits from forward-facing views and has direct access to the bow helideck should the owner wish to arrive or depart with minimal fuss.
Red Star is passionately Asian and almost exclusively characterised by dark timbers, intricate Chinese style wood carvings and sumptuous silk carpets. The theme on the bridge deck is what Pride Megayachts attests is a ‘Traditional Men’s club’ – complete with home cinema, intimate cigar lounge, games table and, importantly, a well-stocked bar. These elements mean the bridge deck will likely prove a popular area.
The lower deck arrangement follows a more conventional layout with accommodation for up to 30 crew forward of Red Star’s engine room. While the spec is not fully finalised, Pride claims the vessel will be capable of a maximum speed of 16 knots, a cruise speed of 12 knots and an anticipated range of a useful 6,000 nautical miles.
Fifty, the aptly named 50m superyacht forms the second half of Pride’s unveiling. A superyacht characterised by traditional and refined lines, the steel-hulled vessel follows a typical tri-deck arrangement. Accommodating 12 guests across six cabins (one master-stateroom, two VIP suites, two double cabins and one twin cabin), the master-stateroom located forward on the main deck will also include sizeable private lounge.
Fifty will provide accommodation for nine crew and have a cruising speed of 14 knots with a projected range of 4,000 nautical miles, putting it well in line with modern expectations.
