It seems the owner of the superyacht Day’s, in build in Turkey, isn’t content with just cruising naturally beautiful areas. He wants to bring some of that beauty right on board. The first set of detailed artists’ renderings reveals trees on multiple decks, inside and out.
Day’s is the first build in an explorer series, the Ice Yachts range, from CCN Yachts, a Turkish construction and management firm. It’s overseeing the 223-foot (68-meter) Day’s at AES Yacht. With five decks, the yacht has abundant space, made all the more apparent due to nearly nine feet (2.7 meters) of headroom.
What stands out in that space is the use of live trees, complemented by natural-looking, manmade design elements. These include planter-like zones for the trees, along with pale wood sculpted as if to mimic sand. They also include a bamboo “forest” backdrop, as seen in the gallery below. Given the 43-foot (13-meter) beam, plus 1,800-gross-ton volume, Day’s definitely distinguishes herself as a custom project.
Hot Lab has been working with the owner to execute a subdued, and certainly minimalistic, decor. The look extends from the saloon to the sky lounge, the latter doubling as a movie room or business boardroom when needed. Interestingly, AES Yacht built a full-scale mockup of one of the three VIP suites, outfitted with all of the hardwoods and other solid materials, for the owner’s benefit.
Besides those three VIP suites, Day’s has a twin guest cabin, all of which sit on the main deck, not below. Yet another cabin joins them, for other friends or family, or even business associates. Altogether, Day’s accommodates an owner’s party of 12, along with up to 18 crew.
The best stateroom in the house, understandably, is the owner’s. The suite occupies the entire upper deck, in fact. With good-size ports arranged around the sleeping area, plus a gym and massage area, it should be quite the oasis.
Day’s should be completed about a year from now. Unfortunately neither the shipyard nor the project-management team has disclosed expected range data. However, the builder does expect a 17-knot maximum speed under Caterpillar power.
