Vitruvius Yachts Launches Grace E In Monaco
Published: Tuesday, 30 September 2014
Vitruvius Yachts Ltd launched Grace E at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. The 73m vessel is the latest joint effort between Vitruvius Ltd and Picchiotti Spa. She follows the 50m Exuma launched in 2010 and the 55m Ice Class Galileo G launched in 2011.
Grace E’s fine water entry and stretched hull guarantee low consumption, this efficiency makes her the ideal yacht for cruising and exploring far-flung locations.
Designed by Philippe Briand in conjunction with Picchiotti, Grace E began as a three-deck 53m vessel but evolved into a 73-metre yacht with five decks and 1200m2 of recreational facilities.
She can accommodate up to 12 guests in four double cabins and two twin cabins. The owner’s suite features extensive bay windows offering fabulous views out to sea.
Grace E boasts a large pool, spa, gym, steam room, sauna and cold pool as well as treatment rooms and lots of shady areas for relaxing.
Designed by Rémi Tessier, Grace E's interior incorporates rich furnishings and a subtle colour scheme to accentuate the yacht's aura of tranquillity and elegance.
When cruising at 16 knots, virtually no sound can be heard as the use of azipods enables the yacht to move very quietly through the water. The hull has been thoroughly tested and the reduced consumption has been confirmed during sea trials.
The yacht’s range of 7,500 nautical miles is more than enough to cross either the Mediterranean or the Atlantic.
Designed by Philippe Briand Vitruvius Yachts are efficient motor yachts ranging from 44 to 100m. Built using steel and aluminium, to reduce weight and fuel consumption the yachts are intended for far reaching exploration. The design is based on the three core principals of efficiency, sustainability and robustness.
