One of the many new projects to be unveiled at the recent Monaco Yacht Show was Essence 42.5m from Kingship.
The Hong Kong based yacht builder, is the first in Asia specializing in constructing large yachts with steel hulls and aluminium superstructures. It is also the first yard to build a yacht in compliance with Lloyds and MCA in Asia.
Kingship current series includes the Ocean SUV Series, Green Voyager 144’ and the DS156 and the new yacht builds upon that pedigree.
She is the first yacht of her size to have a completely private Master Deck and a 360 degree forward-facing balcony. The full-beam master’s suite together with the low windows, sliding roof and its own balcony offers not only the best view but does so in absolute privacy. The aft sundeck could be shared with guest at the discretion of the owner.
Plans for the concept show that onboard space has been fully utilised and maximised to guarantee owners and guests a comfortable cruising experience.
With the bridge located on the main deck, the captain could efficiently operate and manage docking and tender launching.
The bridge is also connected directly to the galley and crew mess which allows delivery of quality services.
Tender and launching systems beneath the huge sun lounges on the foredeck facilitate easy access to watersports.
The 360 degree passageway also reduces the time needed for crew to get around the yacht, and ensures passengers quality and timely services.
The full displacement hull will be powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines with a cruising speed of 13.5 knots and trans-pacific range.
She accommodates 2 Owners, 8 guests and 8 crews. She will be built to RINA and will comply with MCA LY2.
