Officina Armare Design has unveiled a sleek, modern and sportive yacht with excessive power under dubbed A88 Gransport.
Why this 88-foot yacht is the beast on the water? The streamlined design and frozen grey coloring add to the elegant but aggressive profile and her performance is enhanced by numerous air intakes, some adding to the form of the hardtop.
Automotive-inspired style has crept its way into the design as well: a coupe-like roofline, 4 overwater exhausts and accentuated aft hips emulate hypercars and give the A88 a distinctive look among the populated superyacht market. A88 GranSport is powered by twin 2,600 hp MTU 16V 2000 M94 diesels with surface drives, expected to push the boat at +40 knots at wide open throttle. Cruise is at 35 knots for a 350 nautical mile range.
A88 Gransport can sleep up to 8 guests in 4 beautifully appointed cabins: two large Master Suites and two twin cabins, all with en-suite facilities. The fabulous full beam Master suite incorporating a sit-down shower is exceptionally bright with windows running either side. In addition, there is a king-sized bed and a mini lounge area. Amidships are the two guest cabins, one being an adjustable double/twin and the other a twin cabin. Forward brings us to the second Master suite and all cabins offer luxury en-suite facilities. Inside, variants in the layout allow for 2–3 guest cabins plus a twin crew cabin and the decor is completely customizable for the Owner to leave his or her mark on the spacious and naturally lit interiors.
The imposing bow adds muscle to the profile and the sweeping sheer line extends in an unbroken line from stem to stern that creates a timeless, sleek appearance. The aerodynamic hardtop meanwhile is designed with large glass panels for guests to choose between sunshine and shade. Teak with carbon fiber accents to tie in with her sporty performance and a sleek exterior that gives the impression of speed even when stationary. Carbon fiber overwater exhausts and lateral carbon fiber wings located on each side which are hosting navigation lights complete the super sport look.
Family and friends can relax in convivial comfort by sinking into the generous seating and sunbeds and enjoy al fresco dining thanks to the galley unit.
The foredeck features a second more intimate dining area for up to 8 guests as well as further two large sun pads with a bimini cover offering extra privacy for guests. With her large aft deck boasting a cozy and big leather sofa with large sun pads and a outdoor dining table with seating, perfect for alfresco dining. A spacious galley at aft lower deck and indoor dining area for 8 on main deck make for enjoyable living on board and fully equipped bar maximizes the experience.
The tender garage is equipped with pair of Seabobs and a Williams SportJet 435 on it’s own launching system.
