It’s natural to assume that an 88 meter (289-foot) megayacht would feature plentiful guest staterooms. And you’d be right, if you were thinking about a project other than Orchid. This code-named concept collaboration between Luiz De Basto Designs and Lürssen Yachts accommodates just eight guests, with large windows in the four staterooms to take in the view. The designer and builder have kept the number down to increase the amount of space devoted to saloons, dining areas, alfresco spaces, and other entertainment and relaxation areas that everyone can use.
Designed on 2 levels, the Owner’s Suite, located on the Main Deck, is connected to the owner’s Lounge on the Upper Deck through a private stairway for a total 245 square meters. The traditional Pilot House windshield becomes now an outstanding private sight through which the owner can overlook the outside. The overall exterior design of the Lurssen’s 88meter SuperYacht is the most impressive of all. This six deck luxury motor yacht features beautifully consistent and fluid lines making her stand out wherever she goes.
Other luxurious on-board amenities include a large elliptical pool on the main deck, a spacious main salon, dining, a big theater media room, a red and white wine storage, a gymnasium and a spa. To top it all, the yacht even has a helipad. All the Orchid decks speak of Luiz De Basto‘s signature harmonious design, with every stateroom having large windows to ensures plenty of natural light. The intelligent design layout offers total partition between crew and guests. There are separated elevators for the guests and crew from the lower deck to the bridge deck.
The overall result? An inspired balance of form and function on a vessel with a truly distinct personality and the solid quality of Lurssen engineering and construction.
