New concept from DeBasto and Hodgdon
Published: Thursday, 18 July 2013
DeBasto Designs and Hodgdon Shipbuilding recently released their innovative new design concept, the Onyx 41.
The Onyx is as easy to operate as it is to look at. From touch screen controls to remote monitoring, Onyx sets new standards in technology applications in a yacht of this size. A host of innovative features such as a self-deploying integrated fender system, built-in dock line handling, hybrid electric propulsion and joystick steering bring owner-operator convenience to a new level.
If these features alone don’t impress, consider the level of luxury aboard. A generous open plan space below features a large berth, a wrap-around settee, a galley and a head with dual opening skylights.
On deck, the semi-enclosed deck lounge opens dramatically to the outside world through a sliding skylight roof. Integrated furniture runs nearly the entire length of the available space, offering ample seating and lounging areas.
Both interior and exterior furnishings can customised with weather and stain-resistant fabrics from interiors designers Loro Piana. This concept’s standards are befitting those of a superyacht where the demand for quality is second to none. To achieve such standards, Debasto turned to Hodgdon with its 200-year history of producing some of the world's finest superyachts and tenders and advanced composite expertise to transition their design into production. Hodgdon has risen easily to the challenge.
Limited quantities of the Onyx are expected to be built for only the most discriminating of owners.
