With the 26m TULIP, yacht designer Germán Frers created a great mix between classic and modern lines.

When I saw the model of the 26 meters (88 feet) luxury yacht Tulip in April 2012 during a visit at KM Yachtbuilders in Makkum, The Netherlands I was very impressed with the design by German Frers. The elegant classical design above the water line and a modern underwater area with a lifting keel make her a fast beauty. It was love at first sight! In case you like the design too but you are looking for a bigger version, take a look at Royal Huisman’s PURA concept in its retro design.

Tulip welcomes six guests in four cabins with ensuite bathrooms and a crew of two. The owner’s cabin is forward located. The deckhouse has a dining table, a library, navigation desk, television, and a refrigerator. The interior design comes from Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design. The layout offers the opportunity to use her also as a charter yacht. There are no interior photos but the yard describes it as “a stylish, modern and luxurious interior design. Natural colors such as brown, beige, cream and grey will alternate with the intense dark orange that frequently recurs in the detailing.”.
