China is generally not known as a nation engaged in the construction of yachts, but nevertheless, some respected brands such as Cheoy Lee and Silver Yachts originate from China …
One of their super-creators, Pride Mega Yachts, has almost organized a historic launch for the mega yacht sector. This ambitious 88 meter long yacht has six decks, and is named Illusion Plus and represents a domestic, Chinese product. The construction of this yacht, overseen by an international team of experienced experts, included highly valued names in the stages of its planning and construction.
The design of the interior of this yacht is the work of the Hollywood Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design studio, while the London-based Rainsford Saunders Design, now bearing the new name Rainsford Mann Design, is responsible for the exterior.
Dutch studio Azure Yacht Design was in charge of nautical architecture. Greenline Yacht Interiors from Dubai has been hired to equip the interior. It is very rare to see such an international group of experts working together on a single project.
Combined with nearly ninety meters in length, the Illusion Plus yacht is a real palace. It offers a large number of rooms, but one of them stands out – a proprietary apartment with an area of almost 100 m2, located on its private deck. It has a panoramic view through its full height windows, private office, his and her bathroom and huge wardrobe.
In addition to this apartment, the yacht offers two VIP, two double and one twin cabin for guests, as well as two regular cabins for proprietors. In addition, the crew space of 25 crew members is located in 15 cabins on the lower decks.
In addition to these cabins, this yacht has four loggias in the interior and two dining rooms. There are also two Jacuzzi, three guest tenders and an elevator that contributes to the comfort of all passengers. The atrium of the double height that connects the lounge on the main deck with the lodge on the beach above creates an unusual open plan connection for these two spaces, intended for larger groups.
The spa on the lowest deck has a sauna, a massage room and a steam room, with its separation from the rest of the yacht creating a sense of peace.
On the main deck there is a gym and beauty salon, and the yacht itself is decorated with Baccarat crystalline objects and Hermes dishes.
One of the most impressive elements of this yacht will be unrecognized by guests. The propulsion system, which is diesel-electric in this case with Azipull backing floors, was created in cooperation with the Rolls Royce brand. This yacht is ultra efficient and quiet, which in no way jeopardized its speed. The range of five thousand nautical miles, combined with a speed of 16 knots, will surely make the yacht owner honor the community of millionaires and billionaires. In the end, we must mention that this yacht costs $ 145 million.
