SALT SPRAYS IN THE FACE OF THOSE WHO WANDER

In a world without boundaries, where compromise does not exist, Project 783 sets the tone for a new breed of super yacht. Mesmerizing and enchanting, this is the epitome of aesthetic refinement.

There is a timeless elegance to the way in which her hull carves her way through the waves with confidence and style. The epitome of elegance, it is hard not to revel in the rhythm of the sea when enjoying such overtly opulent surroundings.

Allow yourself to succumb to the enchantment of natures’ masterpieces, as you glide through your own private gallery of seascapes and sunsets, where her unprecedented spaciousness is intimate yet freeing.

Piercing the boundary between sea and sky, Project 783 is the result of superb craftsmanship and design, an amalgamation of talent from the drawing boards of Reymond Langton Design – for the exterior – and Mark Berryman – for the interior design and outfit – brought to reality by the world-renowned Nobiskrug shipyard. The power of these masters of yacht design were harnessed by Monaco-based superyacht specialist Imperial – instrumental as Owner’s Representative and as Supervisor for the interior refit – utilising their many years of experience building some of the industries’ most beautiful yachts, notably, 82m RoMEA.

A natatory paradise, the level of sophistication achieved throughout is astounding. The meditative atmosphere on board is enhanced by the use of various natural materials, notably the succulent European oak that dominates the interior.

Conceptualised to perfection by Imperial, the playfulness between interior and exterior is exhilarating and immersive, with a lenght of 73.51m, a 12.58m beam and unprecedented high ceilings, measuring 2.5m in the main deck dining area alone.

For those seeking absolute relaxation, 6 state of the art cabins house 12 guests in the finest surroundings. The synergy between Berryman’s genius artistic rhetoric and Imperial’s superb management skills can best be seen here; the full-beam master suite is exquisite, a real testament to the expertly managed build, getting the desired concept from off the page and into the water with grace. Featuring a fold-down balcony of large proportions, there could be no greater way than to spend a private evening here with panoramic sea views.

This truly is a yacht for those who love to be on the water. On it or in it, the sea is a dominating factor to the overall concept, with every element of the yacht’s design dedicated to showcasing the absolute beauty of the surrounding seascape.

Every inch of the yacht has been so expertly designed as to facilitate the constant enjoyment of life for all those on board. Numerous al fresco dining areas can be chosen depending on mood, with additional features such as the open-air cinema on the bridge deck, the interior cinema room, or the unmissable Sun deck Jacuzzi, creating a difficult decision between watching the film or gasping at the bird’s eye view of the sea below.  Connect with the water and breathe deeper the refreshing sea air. The beach club is truly magnificent in scale, allowing for completely bespoke experiences every day.

Explore life outside the yacht and share in the same excitement of those shore-based onlookers by seeing Project 783 from the comfort of her accompanying support vessel. In fact, the yacht runs with a dedicated Damen support vessel named 6711, a true superyacht on its own, built two years after to complete the Project 783 experience with all you need to enjoy your time on the sea, highlighting the expertise of Imperial Yachts’ management of two incredibly large projects side by side.


SUPPORT & SECURITY ESCORTING EXPERTISE

Leave all your worries on the shore. Totally uncompromising when it comes to safety, Fast Support Vessel 6711 is the absolute personification of support.  Crewed by 22 military-trained crew, the combination of yacht and support vessel allows you to enter into a new dimension of security and comfort.

Focussed to provide an incredible level of exclusivity, the helipad on board, with its 14m D-value and a maximum take-off weight of 5,000 kg, can host aircrafts such as Airbus AH-145, AH-136 or Ecureuil; Agusta-Westland AW119 or AW109; or even Bell 505 or 429… perfect for romantic sunset trips along the coast, or for any last minute travel plans!

Perfectly designed to compliment Project 783, Imperial managed the build alongside the Damen Shipyard, again making use of the talented Mark Berryman for her interiors. Every possible desire has been taken into consideration with the building of this vessel; areas are dedicated to the numerous tenders and limo tenders for travel to shore in style, while the adrenaline junkies on board can access the submarine, motorcycles, jet skis, and various other state-of-the-art watersports equipment. The vessel also features a decompression chamber in the dive centre. Although destined for highly practical use, no element of luxury has been compromised. At 67m long “impressive” doesn’t quite cover it.

What has been created with the production of these two yachts by Imperial is utterly remarkable, showing that this firm, already well-established within the superyacht industry thanks to its large portfolio of 55m+ superyachts built, delivered and managed, is really reaching the pinnacle of what is possible to achieve when skill is mixed with passion.

Project 783 and Fast Support Vessel 6711 will be on display at Monaco Yacht Show 2017 exclusively with Imperial: T-Central Quay – Floating Pontoon
