A year after she premiered, Illusion Plus is still turning heads, particularly as the largest private yacht constructed in Asia. Actively for sale, she’s attracting attention additionally for her extraordinary interior–which is really the star of this Sunday Superyacht Video.
Measuring 290 feet (88.5 meters), the six-deck megayacht made her global debut at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show. She launched about five months prior. Besides her long, plumb bow, the styling work of Rainsford Mann Design, she generated a lot of talk due to her nearly 3,650-gross-ton volume inside. Considering she encompasses six decks and more than 50 feet (15.4 meters) of beam, it isn’t hard to understand why.
Pride Mega Yachts, her builder, took on a multi-year challenge in constructing her. So, too, did Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design in designing and outfitting the interiors. Due to her dimensions, Illusion Plus treats guests like kings and queens, with staterooms all on the main and upper decks. Understandably, the owners’ suite takes the prime spot. This day-in-the-life video lets you vicariously experience all 861 square feet (80 square meters) of the suite. Note, for instance, the nearly full-height windows and spacious private alfresco deck. Illusion Plus further has a skylight in the suite.
Leathers, woods, backlit stone, and more create serene spaces from the staterooms to the relaxation areas. Blink and you might miss the sauna onboard. Unfortunately you don’t get to see the private cinema, but the hot tub and beach club do beckon in some scenes.
For those of you who pride yourselves on technical knowledge, note further that Illusion Plus has a diesel-electric propulsion system. Developed by Rolls Royce, it permits a reported 15-knot cruising speed. Transatlantic range is no issue at that speed. Azipods additionally make her more maneuverable.
