Designed by the famed naval architect Philippe Briand, who has over 12,000 luxury built boats to his name, the 344-foot Acquaintance yacht concept by Vitruvius Yachts and Oceanco is the perfect balance of beauty and dimensions.
Your eyes will be immediately drawn to the aluminum superstructure, especially from the main deck as light plays off the glass walls that encapsulates the saloon. The spa deck below sits at sea level, alongside a beach club, gym, theater, and a variety of watercrafts—including a 39-foot tender—housed in the garage.
The deck bridge, fronted by a helicopter pad, is accessed via a central staircase and elevator. Behind the bridge, guests can enjoy the second saloon – one isn’t enough, right? – with a recessed bar and panoramic views.
The aforementioned balance of dimensions is seen through the boat’s hybrid propulsion system. It’s 20-per cent more efficient than those on similarly sized yachts, while still reaching a top speed of 18.5 knots.
The Acquaintance is available on a made-to-order basis; the concept debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show a few weeks ago.
