The Vitruvius Expedition Range
Exploring the boundaries of yacht function and form
Vitruvius Yachts has created a new range of yachts that will offer a variety of design choices for owners, whether they are looking to stay in more familiar ports or to explore the world’s most remote waters. With its bold new range of concepts they has created a boundary-breaking manifesto for the way yacht design and capability is defined, offering clients a choice of concepts spread across a spectrum of solutions for their cruising needs.
‘Our team is driven by pushing the frontiers of yacht design,’ said Philippe Briand, designer and naval architect at Vitruvius Yachts. ‘Of course, the needs and functions of expedition yachts, explorers and Mediterranean yachts would at first seem independent of one another. But there are clear intersections where we can create solutions that span multiple categories.’
The new range of Vitruvius Yachts concepts proves that an owner can have the best of both worlds, choosing how much ‘Mediterranean’ they would like to mix with ‘explorer’ and ‘expedition’. The comfort, space and luxury of a Mediterranean yacht can be combined with the long-range efficiency and rugged capabilities of an explorer. The range includes six motoryachts of similar size, from 45 to 50 metres, as well as a 55-metre explorer sailing yacht.
