The British design company Rhoades Young presents a concept of a 49m classic styled explorer motor yacht.

The concept is inspired by the JFA built motor yacht Bystander (2006) which was created as an escort vessel for the 39m J-Class sailing yacht Velsheda (JK7). Rhoades Young designed both. Exterior and interior.

A classic yacht concept like this is a very good choice for people who love classic yachts with the latest marine (safety) technology for adventures around the world in gentleman style. In my opinion the best option if you can resign a yacht with hundred years of history which often interesting for lovers of classic yachts.

The owner’s area is located under the bridge deck with a 180-degree view over the sea. The owner’s suite features a study, an inside/outside saloon separated by large glass sliding doors which flood the saloon with natural light.

The classic explorer can store two big tenders up to 9 meters under the huge aft deck area. A smaller crew tender finds his place on the foredeck.

The yacht accommodates 12 guests and 12 crew members. One of the design specials is a “quadruple-height staircase” that emphasizes the center of the yacht.

Résumé: Design is always a question of taste, but the layout with big hidden tender storage, big aft deck and private owner’s deck is great! Thumbs up, Rhoades Young!
