Anyone who has the financial resources to purchase a yacht probably also has enough resources to be quite discerning in the choice they ultimately make. Yachts have always been a popular option but just like everything else, their overall design is changing in a major way as new types of technology become available. The end result is a newer group of yachts that look nothing like the ones that were created 10 years ago. In large part, they don't even closely resemble anything created as recently as five years ago. One such example is a 120 ft long yacht with an aluminum hull named “Lucy.” It comes from popular yacht designers Camper and Nicholsons International, and it is truly stunning in every possible capacity, ranging from the way it looks to its amenities and of course, its performance.
Two Worlds Coming Together
The most obvious thing about this particular yacht is that two worlds are married into one with its design. To be more accurate, it would be safe to say that the very best parts of these two different worlds are married together. In this particular case, it has to do with bringing together the type of Italian interior design that you would see in the finest villas throughout the country, all seamlessly incorporated into the privacy, solitude and adventurous spirit that automatically comes with spending a significant amount of time in open water. There is no shortage of space on this particular yacht, either. In fact, up to seven people can comfortably sleep there, thanks to the owner's suite and two additional guest suites that offer more than enough space for everyone to be comfortable, all while enjoying more than a fair amount of privacy. The owner's suite alone is a true work of art, stretching the full 27 ft length of the beam. It's more than big enough to give you as much space as you want and it even comes with its own lounge. if you're in the mood to get out of the suite, yet you don't really want to join the party just yet, you have all the privacy you need without feeling cramped in the process. Of course, there is also plenty of room for up to five crew members at the other end of the boat. This virtually ensures that both guests and crew will have their own spaces, distinctly separate from the area that you call your own as the owner of the boat. It would be remiss to leave out the fact that the yacht has a common living area that is more than big enough to accommodate a rather large party of individuals, along with its own sauna and even a massage room. Just in case you were wondering, the yacht also has three separate levels to explore and enjoy.
Power and Beauty
It doesn't matter how fancy a yacht is, it doesn't do much good if it's not capable of getting from one place to another at a decent pace. That's definitely not something that you have to worry about in this particular case, as this boat is equipped with two engines that are each capable of producing 1,600 horsepower. That translates to a more than respectable top speed of 20 knots. If you're going for decent speed and exceptional range, you can reduce that to a cruising speed of 10 knots and go 1,400 nautical miles on a single fill up. In short, this is a yacht that is very much capable of outperforming many of the other luxury boats that are currently sailing in open water and it does it beautifully. The one thing that is truly striking about this design is that its looks and amenities were never sacrificed for performance and functionality. By the same token, the all-important performance and functionality were never sacrificed in order to provide more amenities or to make the boat look more attractive. It really is the perfect marriage of all of these different factors that have to come into play at just the right levels in order for the yacht in question to be truly special. Otherwise, it's little more than just another fancy boat on the water and in many cases, an overpriced one at that. This particular yacht just happens to be available for sale and even though it's only been on the water for a couple of months, it will set you back a little more than $16 million US dollars if you're interested. That being said, it's safe to say that it very well may be worth the asking price, something that you can't say about every yacht that is currently sailing.
A Trusted Source
“Lucy” comes from the venerable Italian shipyard, Tecnomar. In fact, this yacht is the fourth in a distinct line from the shipyard’s EVO 120 series. Just like those that have come before her, she is that perfect combination of engineering and luxury that sets the truly great yachts apart from all the rest. It’s also worth noting that this particular boat still has its full warranty attached to it. That means the lucky buyer will have the chance to thoroughly enjoy their new yacht with the safety and security that a two-year warranty brings. When all things are considered, it’s obvious how rare this particular yacht really is. Furthermore, it’s apparent that an offer like this one doesn’t come around all that often. While the yacht definitely isn’t selling for “cheap,” it is a great buy for those who are already in the market for a new yacht and can handle the price tag attached to one. In fact, some would even argue that it would be a mistake to even consider buying anything else as long as this particular yacht is on the market.
