UTOPIA has a special place
in the Feadship league of launches. The owner’s brief to the De Vries shipyard
was very simple: build a yacht that would justify her name. Subject to no
particular constraints the 71.6 metre (235’) yacht was planned with three
priorities in mind: huge internal volume, unprecedented glazed areas and highly
automated systems. Six decks include a duplex sun deck, an entire owner’s deck
and a vast main deck that provides both indoor and outdoor entertaining space. A
lower deck gives crew a superb living environment and an under lower deck
enables them to operate the yacht without needing access to guest areas.
The Owner’s deck provides a large 50 meters of space on one level with a private Jacuzzi and dinning terrace, gym and a master cabin facing a 270° semi-circular window.
The distinctive feature of UTOPIA’s volume is that huge swathes of space were kept intact and not subdivided into small rooms. It is a great example of less being so much more. With 2.2 metre headroom and almost full-length glazing, UTOPIA has some of the lightest and largest entertaining areas of any private yacht of her size. The interior is subtly styled with the finest-quality materials. Carrara marble and light oak panelling with burl-oak inlays form the backdrop to Redman Whiteley Dixon’s laid-back choice of fabrics and furniture. The balance between interior and exterior space is one of the major factors in the comfort of a yacht. This skilfully planned layout has three walk-around decks while still providing enormous salons. Typically Utopian.
