M/Y Saluzi To Be Showcased At Singapore Yacht Show Apr 23-26
Published: Wednesday, 25 March 2015
Organisers of the Singapore Yacht Show (SYS) have announced that the 69-metre Australian-built M/Y Saluzi, the largest permanently based yacht available for charter in Asia will be on display at the show, which runs Apr 23-26.
Built by Austal and recently refitted, the former luxury cruise ship is the product of remarkable engineering and vision, designed to offer a floating vacation palace for exploring Asian waters.
The yacht is named after the mystical warhorse of Tang Dynasty Emperor Taizong. According to the legend the superhero horse, Saluzi, despite being badly wounded in battle unflinchingly delivered the Emperor back to safety. Artist Li Jiwei has created the artwork of the horse on the exterior of the yacht as a modern interpretation of the ancient tale.
Charter and broker company Yachtzoo will represent the vessel at the show.
“This year we will present the 69m M/Y Saluzi for charter as we also believe in the future of South East Asia and the Indian Ocean as new and attractive destinations,” says Kirsten Ringsing, Founding Partner of Yachtzoo Monaco.
Inspired by the idea of a chic floating beach house, Saluzi is a truly modern sanctuary for family and friends that combines both the space and privacy essential for creating a relaxed atmosphere in which to recharge.
Saluzi’'s 32 crew on board take care of up to 32 guests who occupy cabins that are divided into two masters, seven VIPs and seven deluxe cabins, spread over 1650sqm of guest space across five decks that also boast landscaped terraces, a spa, a karaoke bar, a nightclub and an open air cinema.
“The briefing for the Saluzi interior team was, from day one, to think different, to be original,” says Miami based yacht designer Luiz de Basto. “Although we did not know exactly where this would lead, the owners knew exactly what they did not want. They did not want to play it safe, they were not afraid to take risks. It was a good time for us to be creative, to get inspired.”
With an aluminium hull and superstructure, Saluzi features an ultra-modern stabilisation system to reduce roll motion effect and ensure ultimate comfort throughout one’s charter vacation. With a cruising speed of 12 knots, a maximum speed of 16 knots and a range of 1500 miles, she is a winning combination of performance and comfort.
