  1. Hakvoort launches 39.7-meter motoryacht "Apostrophe"


    Custom-built in every respect, MY "Apostrophe" features an elegant exterior profile from the boards of Reymond Langton Design Ltd., which was also responsible for the contemporary Art Deco interior. With naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design, exceptional support from ***** Yacht and Ship, and an owner determined to build the finest Hakvoort to date, Apostrophe is a testimony to how magnificent things can be achieved when people truly cooperate together.

    A Russian Orthodox priest blessed Apostrophe on Saturday 13 April 2013 in a ceremony at the Hakvoort yard, which was attended by the owner, his guests and the craftsmen responsible for her construction. The modern design by Reymond Langton features coloured tones, black windows and a striking grey hull, with contrast being offered by the gleaming white superstructure. A wealth of complex shapes in the profile combine with long-running lines from bow to stern to create a unique look. The curved windows in the owner’s area on the main deck are very special and mirrored in the sky lounge above. Taken as a whole, all these aspects make Apostrophe look significantly longer than 40 metres.

    The contemporary art deco interior features ebonised walnut and makassar joinery with lots of mother-of-pearl inlays, plus a wealth of fine detailing in stainless steel, brushed nickel and leather. Apostrophe’s main entrance is extraordinary – an open stairwell with a custom designed chandelier from Crystal Caviar. The latter company also supplied various artworks, including a glass piece in the bathroom with curved backlit panels and underwater motifs.

    The full beam master stateroom on the main deck includes a fabulous bathroom furthest forward completely finished in Onyx marble. The stateroom itself has panoramic views through the curved windows and the owner’s area also includes a walk-in dressing room and office. Four guest suites on the lower deck each have their own individual style including in the bathrooms, reflecting the vast range of materials and fabrics used throughout the boat. “Apostrophe confirms that there is no limit to what Hakvoort can create,” concludes project manager Alexander Speksnijder. “Despite the incredible complexity of both the exterior shaping and the interior décor, this sophisticated and challenging project has been finished to perfection.”
