Exterior designer Andre Hoek took his inspiration for BLUE II from a project to convert a 1960s working vessel.
That project, along with the iconic ocean going tug HOLLAND, defined her sweeping sheerline and elegant canoe stern, the evocative decklights, dorade vents and funnel.
A tradition of modern classics
Hoek Design has an enviable track record of capturing the grace and elegance of bygone years with a range of classically inspired sailing yachts, including several J Class beauties.
This project allowed the studio to bring to bear all of that expertise and inspiration in the motoryacht sector. The result is a yacht of immediate and powerful appeal, one that is absolutely unmistakable and one that defies the vagaries of fashion.
Her interiors, by Hoek and British design studio Vickers, are characterised by a relaxed elegance that mirrors her functional aesthetic. A restrained palette of gloss teak furniture and cabinetry with white painted bulkheads framing cream coloured wall panels produces an ambiance of carefree refinement.
Add to that a dedicated gym, a wellness centre with sauna and hammam, plenty of toys and a folding swim platform on the port side and she has everything any charter party could possibly need, all delivered in genuinely timeless style.
