Visionaria is the latest Amer 94 megayacht to make her way out of the build sheds at Amer Yachts. She continues the Italian yard’s emphasis on fuel-friendly travels.
Visionaria, like her predecessor in the Amer 94 series (pictured above), is powered by a Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system. IPS drives, introduced more than a decade ago, save yacht owners about 30 percent in fuel consumption compared to traditional drives. They also increase range by about 40 percent over traditional drives. As for Visionaria, she has a triple 900-hp Volvo Penta IPS setup, the same as the Amer 94 Baccarat that was delivered last year. The builder says sea trials proved Visionaria consumes only about 11 gph (41 lph) at 9.2 knots. Those same sea trials confirmed a 30½-knot top speed.
Still on the subject of the IPS system, it allows megayachts featuring it to cruise in shallower waters. The Amer 94 series across the board has a draft of just 6’1″ (1.85 meters), including the propellers. Whether in shallow or deep waters, though, the megayacht makes enjoying the scenery from on deck easy. A U-shape bow seating area and the hardtop-covered flying bridge are two ideal spaces from which to do so aboard Visionaria.
Amer Yachts has not indicated how the owner of Visionaria has arranged the interior, or what decor materials are aboard. It should be safe to assume that the master stateroom is full beam. (Beam is 20’7″, or 6.3 meters.) In general, the Amer 94 series offers a variety of configurations. Baccarat, for example, has four staterooms below decks. Five are also possible, interesting enough, as are three, with all cabins being full beam.
