Cor D. Rover, Van Oossanen and Royal Huisman will premiere 55m M/Y Sangi at Monaco Yacht Show 2019, where the sub-500gt motoryacht concept will then be on display to some 30,000 attendees.

Dutch studio, Cor D. Rover, has designed the vessel with Royal Huisman shipyard, and features a lightweight aluminium hull form, based on the patented Fast-Displacement XL® Van Oossanen Naval Architects design, delivering enhanced hydrodynamics for performance and stability.

Sangi benefits from the significant benefits in the certification and regulation of yachts with a gross tonnage lower than 500GT.

The GT also affects the structure of the vessel itself, which can be seen in Sangi’s design. A 500GT threshold challenges designers, naval architects and shipyards to optimise the layout while keeping within the strict limitations of the reduced volume. Sangi’s various communal spaces and guest accommodation options result from ‘smart’ engineering, according to Royal Huisman, whereby they have minimised the hull volume required for machinery.

The deck plans indicate spacious internal and external leisure areas, a media theatre, an expansive owner’s suite and guest rooms for up to 10 guests. The future owner will have freedom to choose their own interior layout and styling, subject only to the retention of the main structural bulkheads. A future owner could also opt to restyle and even re-model the superstructure – according to the Royal Huisman website.

Sangi offers hybrid and fully-electric propulsion options (alongside conventional set-ups) together with ‘smart’ energy management systems that optimise power generation, storage and usage, all helping to future-proof the yacht. At this year’s edition of The Superyacht Forum, we will discuss ‘Next Generation Infrastructure’ and consider the ways in which we can future-proof vessels, looking closely at ownership cycles, lifecycle modelling and how the industry supports the client and the fleet.
