Christopher Seymour 44m Amor Fati superyacht is inspired from America’s Cup yachts of the 90s
Brining most of the charm of the 90′s era America Cup vessels, Christopher Seymour Design’s Amor Fati superyacht presents itself as the combination of tradions as well charming luxury yachting. Even though using a sleek and slim design of the hull of the boat, the Amor Fati fits perfectly well into the cruiser category, without compromising on the comfort factor which one would expect of such a magnitude. With the upcoming Palm Beach show around the corner, this 44-meter yacht will certainly look to capture its section of wealthy buyers. The most intelligent part of the design has been the bow which rests just above the water and the stern which appears rising above continuously.
The stewardship of the vessel has been restricted to the rear end of the yacht, where one sees a smart yet sleek, and slim place for the pilot to control the whole vessel. Just beside the pilot stand, is the the main sitting area with 3 sofas, which have a multiple passenger capacity on each of them. Ideally meant for accompanying water sports, this area is placed just ahead of the rear end of the deck, from which one either indulge in some swimming, snorkeling or some tender speed boating along with the yacht. Basically, a set of stairs on each side leads down to another deck/swim platform, which can be made private on request.
Inside the sleek cabin space, there lies quiet a few amenities. There is the lounge and bar area, which can be reached via a small set of stairs from the exterior sitting area. There is also cabin space with sunroof which lets one experience the light of nature, while staying cozy on the interior. Other than these, there is the owner’s suite, laundry room, and crew quarters for 6 staff members. The owner’s space has direct access to the front stern deck via a glass door, for better private viewing all-round.
In terms of the engine, the main support is gained from the sail on the deck, which can increase speeds upto 18 knots, where as the cruising speed is pegged between 10 and 12 knots, with just the engine machine supporting the movement of the yacht. The lightweight vaccum resin infused construction of the hull allows for easy handling and decent performance. Though the boat uses plenty of wood on the stern and rear deack areas, one can certainly look at some customization with different fabrication, or change in the amenities on the vessel.
