Full details on the newly developed Essence 42.5m had been revealed on 23 September 2011 at the Monaco Yacht Show.  She is the first yacht of her size to have a completely private Master Deck and a 360 forward-facing balcony.  The full-beam master’s suite together with the low windows, sliding roof and its own balcony offers not only the best view but absolute privacy.  The aft sundeck could be shared with guest at the discretion of the owner.


Owing to the hull design and innovative solutions adopted, onboard space is fully utilized and maximized to guarantee owners and guests a comfortable cruising experience.  With the bridge located on the main deck, the captain could efficiently operate and manage docking and tender launching.  The bridge is also connected directly to the galley and crew mess which allows delivery of quality services.  Tender and launching systems beneath the huge sun lounges on the foredeck facilitate easy access to watersports.  The 360 degree passageway also reduces the time needed for crew to get around the yacht, and ensures passengers quality and timely services.


Essence with a full displacement hull will be powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines with a cruising speed of 13.5 knots and trans-pacific range. She accommodates 2 Owners, 8 guests and 8 crews.  She will be built to RINA and MCA standard.
