Sarp Yacht have been successfully shortlisted in the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2015. The SARP46, with interior design by Adam Lay and exterior design and naval architecture by Osman Tanju Kalaycioglu, will compete in the Yacht Concept over 40 Metres Award.
Sarp Yacht had to create a motoryacht which would stand the test of time. The intention for the design was to give character to the vessel in every possible setting she may sail to. For this her lines had to be nicely flowing, well-proportioned and fresh.
Her shape and size are carefully refined to stay just below the 500 gross ton mark. Steel was the obvious choice for a strong and reliable hull with ample tank capacity. However, Sarp Yacht opted for epoxy composite to construct her curvy superstructure. By doing this, the team could save weight from the superstructure and fairing compound.
The interior of Sarp Yachts’ new 46m motor yacht blends loft apartment styling and mountain chalet influences with a combination of high end natural timber and metal finishes. The aim was to produce a sophisticated and elegant interior, interwoven with clean simplicity of design that results in an inviting, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Organic marine animal inspired shapes dominate the design.
Above all else, three fundamental principles are paramount to this design: safety first, form to satisfy function and maximum use of space.
