Project 58

Christopher Seymour Designs starts 2012 with his latest concept, this time with more of a conservative approach in the form of a 190’ Motoryacht. But with her lushiest curves, sleek profile, gorgeous spoon bow, and with a touch of tradition, she should create quite a stir. Known as Project 58, she was designed to be a conservative European style motoryacht with modern design features and timber detailing just to make sure she gets that nod of approval.

With a new collection of superyachts coming from the studio in the following months – Ice Collection, Christopher has brought over a few ideas to promote the overall living conditions on the vessel. One such feature is the improved levels of natural light through the second deck (main deck), this is caused by the large deck to ceiling windows on the side of the superstructure, and back deck windows, which both also backup as structural supports. This then flows into the VIP Suites, with large styled windows on the hull to help bring in the natural light and improve the whole experience for the guests.

Her foreseen interior layout is to keep it conventional, so situated on deck one are the crew’s quarters for 12, there living space, main kitchen, and through the engine room is the tender bay. Which can store one large RIB on the starboard bay and on the port side is a smaller RIB, plus 2 Jet Skis. The usually water toys like underwater scooters, diving apparatuses etc, for guests can also be found here. The stern also boasts a moving platform that folds over and can rests just under the surface of the water for conveyance in boarding the vessel and water sports.

On deck two (main deck), inside are the main dining, kitchen, lounge areas, and four VIP suites, which comfortably allows two guests per suite, it also has large lounge and dining areas outside. Above on deck three is the bridge, and towards the back, is the owner’s suite, which also has its own private outside deck with lounge and dining areas. There’s also an open lounge on the foredeck for owner’s and guests to enjoy and see where the day is headed. This brings the total number of guests (including owner) to 10. On deck four (top deck), is where all the fun comes together with a spa that’s hugged by a large lounge, a bar where you can have your favourite cocktails, and some relaxing on the sunbeds towards the aft of the deck.

Extra attention has also been spent on the hydrodynamics on the hull, and particularly on her entry. Not only does she boast some gorgeous flare to take on large seas, she was also designed to be more efficient, which also has a positive effect on her long range capabilities. This also allows her to have a greater scope of destinations for owner and guests to choose.

The hull can either be constructed of aluminium or steel, pending an owner’s request, where as the superstructure will be constructed of aluminium. The vessel will be powered by diesel engines with approximately 2800hp aside, coupled together to conventional shafts. She has an estimated long range cruise speed of 12 knots, standard cruise of 14 knots, and a top end speed of 18 knots. The vessel’s long range distance should be in excess of 5000nm+. To keep the 58m steady either at anchor or on the move she will be equipped with Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers.
