PRIME MEGAYACHTS IS A NAVAL PLATFORM FOR YACHTS FROM 50 METERS IN LENGTH AND 499 GT, developed to offer a wide variety of superstructures. This concept allows clients the freedom to create a megayacht, which reflects their personal style in terms of both the angular plumb bow and the sleek modern lines.Azure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture has worked hard to create a flexible, fully engineered platform encompassing the hull and decks, and inclusive of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. «For us Prime is a platform that offers so much space, that it creates a 70-meter yachting experience on a 50-meter yacht», comments Bob van den Meiracker of Azure Yacht Design. Layouts can be optimized for private or charter use, while still retaining the ability to be changed for client-specific interests such as health & wellness, sports enthusiasts.
Construction is entirely in aluminum. The hull design follows the proven comfort and hydrodynamics of large, sleek sailing megayachts, while smart engineering keeps fore decks dry even with vertical bow selections. Prime clients can choose their ideal boat from a portfolio of models designed by Reymond Langton, De Basto Designs and Azure Yacht Design.
According to Luiz de Basto of De Basto Designs, «The fact that we have a set platform can only be a source of creativity, not a limitation. If you have well-defined parameters, then you can be very creative». The construction of Prime will take place in The Netherlands at the yard of Bloemsma Yachts, now managed by Daan Balk, a 7th generation Master Builder. Bloemsma will work hand-in-hand with Azure’s technical team and the client’s building surveyor.
