Alpha Marine Ltd have been shortlisted for “Best Naval Architecture - Displacement Motor Yachts” among the 6 biggest names of Superyacht Designers at the Boat International Design & Innovation Awards 2020 with 80-metre SOLAS motor yacht ELEMENTS.
Awards to be hosted at Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy from the 2nd to the 4th of February 2020
80-metre M/Y ELEMENTS was designed for 24 GUESTS by Naval Architects ALPHA MARINE of Greece, who undertook the Exterior Design and Interior Layout with Interior Design by CRISTIANO GATTO. She was built at YACHTLEY Exclusive Yachts and delivered to her Owner in August 2019.
Alpha Marine’s Chairman, Nikos Dafnias – known for being a pioneer in designing large SOLAS vessels since 1985 among an overall of 75 projects, including 85m ANNALIESSE and ‘Trendsetting Award Winner’ 85m ALYSIA – comments: “ELEMENTS is a mixture of contemporary exterior styling complementing classic elements within the interior. She is endowed with advanced engineering features which depend on latest technology and high-quality equipment – all designed and constructed under the umbrella of SOLAS regulations, which impose the highest safety standards”.
Stepping aboard ELEMENTS from the limousine tender via the folding transom, or large side platform, one is immediately welcomed by a 140 square metre luxurious beach club. A wellness centre with massage room and hammam gives a first clue of the yacht's lavish decoration.
From the Beach club guests have direct access to the tender garages and the saloon on the Main deck. The Lower deck hosts also a full beam galley/pantry, a medical room and large crew quarters.
On the Main deck the saloon is the heart of the yacht and natural meeting point for all guests. Entering from the aft deck one is immediately struck by the backlit onyx wall panels flanking you and the intricate marble flooring. Rather than one single lounging area, the saloon offers a variety of sitting areas conducive to smaller groups pursuing different activities at once.
Moving forward through the main lobby, displaying precious marbles and a glass lift, one enters the main guest area featuring nine spacious and elegantly appointed suites, all leading off a long corridor. The decoration conveys a warm and welcoming ambience. Timber floors, rich fabrics, hand-tufted carpets and adorned ceilings and details further accentuate the elegance of the rooms.
One level above, the Owner's deck is laid out as a private apartment with two large VIP suites with luxury bathrooms, office, cinema room, and an astonishingly luxurious Owner's cabin. The suite opens onto a panoramic foredeck with Jacuzzi pool and helipad where the Owner’s private helicopter can land in the utmost privacy. The two SOLAS tenders are recessed into the deck here too.
At the opposite end of his private deck, the Owner can host all his guests in a palatial dining room, sporting two tables each seating 12. A “gentlemen’s room” and cinema, with 9 reclining seats, complete the scene.
On the Bridge deck, a 180-degree panoramic lounge with bar opens onto a well-appointed stern terrace. This top deck hosts also the Captain's cabin and office and a wheelhouse arranged with six display units. The Captain confirms the twin fixed shafts can achieve a 20-knot maximum speed and can be run at full speed for cruising. At 13 knots the range is 9,650 n.m.
