  1. 40-meter "Hygge" Launched
    Yacht studio Vripack's 40-meter yacht has been launched. The yacht design has been called the Seaview 40 but has launched with the name "Hygge". This yacht has a slightly interesting layout. "Whereas typically the entire midsection of the lower deck would be given over to guest accommodation, we split it into two areas, locating guest cabins on the starboard side and crew service areas on the portside," explains Bart Bouwhuis, co-creative director at Vripack. "Both sections have separate access and stairways allowing service to continue unimpeded across all decks and guests to enjoy their privacy without coming into contact with the crew."
  2. This yacht actually has a 7-cabin layout for owner and guests. The key differentiator of the unusual divide is the positioning of the galley and laundry room on the lower deck. It leaves the main deck midsection free to be used for four guest cabins – two twins, two doubles – with a dedicated owner’s suite on the upper deck forward. The interior has 380 GT worth of volume.
  3. Despite the yard's facilities constraining the size of the yacht that could be built, the owners managed to incorporate many features onboard. It begins with a lower deck beach club and spa, including gym, sauna and large swim platform. On the main deck, a large living area for social gatherings is paired with flexible al fresco dining on the aft deck and a bank of semi-circular oversized sunpads. The upper deck enjoys private banquet seating forward of the master suite, with formal dining and seating in the sky lounge and a large exterior aft deck for the entire family to gather. The split-level pilothouse and captain’s cabin are located forward on the sun deck, leaving the aft area free for a jacuzzi and sunpads. All 14 guests are catered for by a crew of 10.
  4. The owner is going to be using the yacht with their family which explains the high number of cabins, 7 on a 40-meter. With a semi-displacement hull the vessel is expected to have a top speed of 20-knots and cruise at around 15-knots drawing from 48,000 LT of fuel. Overall length is 40.7-meters with a beam of 8.19-meters and a very shallow draft of 1.82-meters. Delivery has been penned for Summer 2024.
