CLARITY’S rugged steel hull and elegant lines can accomplish many goals; exploring exotic locations with family and friends, or entertaining large groups with class and style. A unique yacht to meet unique needs.
A modern classic, in the spirit of NERO, SYCARA IV, and VAJOLIROJA; CLARITY is a gentleman’s yacht inspired by the glamorous aesthetics of the ‘Roaring Twenties,’ with all the modern conveniences one expects from a yacht of this caliber.
CLARITY is designed to explore and entertain with class. Turn on the Zero Speed stabilizers, drop one of the 300kg stainless steel anchors in an exotic bay, and walk on to your bridge deck lounge while taking in the primitive scenery on a proper yacht. Board the tender with ease by walking down the side stairs to the sea level platform where an excursion to untouched beaches awaits.
Her classic exterior styling is echoed by an interior that is timeless and luxurious, yet livable. She accommodates 10 guests in 5 staterooms, including an enormous ondeck Master Suite. The Guest Staterooms are exceptionally spacious for a yacht of a comparable size. The King VIP could easily serve as a second master. Neutral finishes and loose furniture allows new owners to add personal touches and accent colors with ease.
Upon entering the Main Salon, family and friends are welcomed with comfort and luxury. An easy, sophisticated style makes for a relaxed atmosphere, as light pours in through large windows, highlighting the yacht’s beautiful joinery and millwork. An inviting sofa and stately arm chairs surround a large tufted ottoman, providing storage, extra seating or a place to enjoy your afternoon snack. Sumptuous carpeting throughout completes the feeling of being encompassed in elegance.
The Salon flows nicely into the formal dining experience forward. An oval-shaped Mahogany table seats 10. A natural agate stone panel and warm back lighting transforms the bulkhead behind into a romantic backdrop. The main deck day head and exterior door are just off the starboard side of the dining area. The agate is repeated as top panels on the two entryway consoles.
The bi-level Master Suite is located on the main deck with a centerline King berth, spacious walk-in closet, and office space with a desk. A panoramic view through large forward and side facing windows offers the best experience on board. Forward of the bed is a staircase leading to the palatial bathroom done entirely in marble with His & Hers sinks and a large zero threshold shower. The master also outfitted with a small refrigerator, and white and red wine coolers holding 98 bottles total.
The lower deck layout consists of four staterooms all with ensuite heads. Forward is a fullbeam VIP outfitted with a King berth, desk, settee and large head with His and Hers vanity, essentially a second master stateroom. Aft of the second master is a queen stateroom to port and twin stateroom to starboard. Further aft is the 2nd VIP stateroom with a kind bed, large shower and double closets.
On the Aft Deck, a large oval dining table provides covered al fresco dining for 10. A few steps aft is the teak observation deck overlooking the water, a unique and exclusive pleasure to experience. The yacht has a classic fantail stern with hydraulic gangway for Mediterranean-style docking. Entry doors to the Salon are framed in high-polished teak and have the ability to slide completely into the side bulwarks, transforming the Aft Deck and Salon into one huge entertaining space.
The Bridge Deck is perfect for al fresco entertaining, as well as outdoor privacy. The stunning full-size bar seats up to seven. It features a natural agate stone bar top illuminated by LED under lighting, akin to the bulkhead panel in the formal dining area. A 5’ long commercial size slide-top cooler ensures ample storage for plenty of cold drinks. The aft portion of the bridge deck is one huge sun bed. Spanning the width of the deck, it is large enough for eight guests to soak up the sun. A Sunshade tastefully covers most of the seating area for all day fun.
Well-suited for a proper gentleman’s card game or a family movie night, the Skylounge exudes casual sophistication. An oversize loveseat and arm chairs are positioned around a French steamer trunk coffee table. Fine joinery showcases a large TV, viewable from the bridge deck bar with synched speakers if desired. Exterior entry doors are framed in high-polished teak, and like the Main Salon doors, they have the ability to slide completely into the side bulwarks for a second harmonious entertaining space on the upper deck.
Forward of the Command Bridge is the Portuguese Bridge outfitted with two large sunbeds doubling as storage lockers. Around the mast is additional cushioned seating. This exclusive space is perfect for an intimate conversation or privacy when Med-style docking is required.
Accessed from the Bridge Deck via a teak and stainless staircase, the Top Deck is the most private outdoor area with the best view. This generous space is home to five chaise sun lounges, and has all teak decking surrounded by stainless handrails and stanchions.
