Maharani will be built on a pre-engineered 50-meter platform by Prime Megayacht, which has been designed to support a variety of superstructures and a layout dedicated to the centrality of life on board
by Massimo Longoni
The project has been designed by the Dutch Vripack Studio and the Yacht Creator division of The New Yachts Company. «Today’s owners are trending younger. They value intelligent ergonomics and versatility in everything they own», says Barin Cardenas, founder of The New Yachts Company.
«It was our strong objective to bring moreexperiences to our owners, presenting them with possibilities typically seen only on larger yachts. We created what we coined as a Resort Yacht, and the Vripack team pushed the boundaries even further», states Bart Bouwhuis, co-creative director of Vripack. «Being Dutch, we love to play with light. Sure, the huge windows play a significant role, but do not underestimate the relevance of selecting just the right balance of light absorbing and reflection materials».
In the engine room Maharani by Prime, which will be built entirely in aluminum, has a pair of MTUs of 2,000 hp each which allows them to reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and to cruise at a rate of 16.
«Maharani offers a genuine Resort Yacht Experience»says Barin. «Our goal is to provide owners more privacy, more luxury entertainment areas, and amenities only witnessed before on 500GT+ yachts».
