Renowned architect, Norman Foster, designed the stunning Ocean Emerald which is the first in a series of four identical super yachts being built for the YachtPlus fractional ownership program.
Foster is best known for landmarks such as London’s Gherkin and the Millennium bridge across the Thames, but this is not his first venture into yacht design. It was in 1991 when he created the 55 meter Ronin which showcased an atypical design but was a monumental achievement nonetheless.
The most apparent feature on his latest work is the dramatic grey superstructure that arches the entire length of the vessel. The yacht has extra deck space at 2,495 square feet being devoted to outside space and a further 2,790 square feet available for guest and crew accommodation.
The large main salon benefits from huge windows providing ample light. Décor throughout all of the cabins is modern but neutral to accommodate the differing tastes of up to 16 different owners. There is a centrally located spiral staircase, which traverses all three decks allowing light to flood the lower deck from the skylight above. At night the internally illuminated steps of the staircase will give the same dramatic effect.
