Floating Artist's Studio 52'
This client, an artist with a love for the sea, commissioned our office to design a 52' keel sloop that would meet his special requirements.
The construction material for this yacht is aluminum and a multi-chine hull design lends itself to easy construction. A short overhang, flush deck, fairly straight sheer line, port lights and hull windows (mostly found in power yachts), all contribute to a different design not usually seen on the DED drawing board. The aft cockpit has an oversized companionway that will allow large artwork to be carried in and out, and the flush deck also has large deck hatches. The height of the mast was kept low for a 65' bridge clearance.
The artist's rendering illustrates a non-traditional interior layout. All in all, it was an interesting challenge for our office to create a Floating Artist's Studio.
