His Excellency Saeed Harib, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, Vice President and Chairman of Dubai International Marine Club – Mina Seyahi were at the event to present the new designs.
Oceanco revealed the lifestyle philosophy of creating a yacht designed for extended families and friends. Amara provides living and entertainment facilities for up to 20 guests. The contemporary interior with natural timber, stone and textural carpets and fabrics blend to create an inviting and natural environment.
Sorgiovanni said: “In designing the exterior lines of Amara, I wanted to portray a very strong and muscular form that was progressive in design but with a timeless appeal. Its long bow accentuates the vessel’s generous proportions. Most importantly, the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.”
The lower level deck opens up to reveal an expansive beach club resort that offers three-way access to the sea; port starboard and aft. Also on this deck is a comprehensive wellness area with banya, hammam, beauty treatment lounge and a cinema experience for 16 persons.
A waterfall from the upper deck cascades down into the main deck swimming pool. The main deck is good for parties, featuring a pool bar, opening balconies and large entertainment areas. The upper deck has an owner’s apartment with a private plunge pool and open-air aft deck dining for 20+ people.
The gym with a capital view is located on the bridge deck. For intimate gatherings, there are two Majilis-style areas aboard. In addition to the cinema on the lower deck, there is a cabana style open-air cinema on the sun deck. There are also accommodations for sports equipment such as climbing wall and water slides.
