  1. 50-meter Philippe Briand Designed Vitruvius Superyacht
    Designer Philippe Briand has designed a new 50-meter superyacht. The design may appear similar to the 50-meter exploring yacht "Exuma". However, as similar as they are, Philippe Briand contends that the new 50-meter Vitruvius is quite different especially on the interior. Combining luxury with green efficiency is a hallmark of a Vitruvius® design for which Naval Architect Philippe Briand is best recognised. Like all the Vitruvius® designs, the efficient optimised hull has a low resistance and she will boast 25% less consumption and reduced co2 emissions than an average yacht of the same size. The yacht's range of autonomy is 5,500 nautical miles at 12-knots , which is more than enough to cross the Atlantic. The new design is 499 GT, which is directly comparable to the GT of Exuma, but the use of the volume is very different. The lay out and General Arrangement of the four decks is not the same.

    The brief was to design a yacht more suitable for a cruising program, not a long distance explorer as is Exuma. This new 50-meter design is roomier with more accommodation, catering for all waters and more accessible cruising areas. The space on the main deck is used for the owner’s suite and two large guests cabins for this is the most comfortable location for the cabins. On the lower deck there are two other roomy guest cabins and the remaining space is dedicated to huge crew quarters for the seven crew. The living area on the main deck presents the possibility to open on three faces instead of the aft wall only. Transparency is paramount, which is why all walls of the superstructure are all surrounded by high bay windows, bringing light and outer views into all of the accommodations. The outer space areas are twice as large than on Exuma. They include, a larger upper terrace, a sun deck and a lounge area on the fore deck. The sun deck has a jacuzzi.
