88m superyacht ‘Illusion Plus’ departs China for the Monaco Yacht Show 2018

By Rebecca Bradbury   15 August 2018

The brand new 88m/290ft motor yacht ‘Illusion Plus’ is the largest private superyacht to have ever been built in Asia and she is now making the long trip from Pride Mega Yachts’ facilities in China to the Mediterranean where she will appear at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.

Launched in April, Illusion Plus is reported to have just left the Chinese yard, with live bands and colourful dragons providing her with a memorable farewell as she sets off on her maiden voyage.  

Undertaking such a long journey means she probably has the furthest to travel out of all the superyachts signed up to Monaco Yacht Show. Luckily, she has been designed for long-range, efficient cruising and her sea trials confirmed she is able to cruise at 14 knots under diesel-electric propulsion.

When luxury yacht Illusion Plus arrives in Monaco, she is currently set to be the third largest yacht in attendance. Measuring 89 metres in length and made up of six decks, her interior volume exceeds 3,600 gross tons, and behind her expansive proportions are Azure Naval Architects and Rainsford Mann Design.

Alongside her large size, she has spectacular interior features. These include a two-deck-high atrium, which unites the formal dining area on the main deck with the upper deck salon.

These guest living areas feature backlit stone, natural-looking wood and leather panels, which have all been selected by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design.

The styling is expected to continue into the staterooms, which comprised of two VIP suites, two double cabins and a twin, are located on the main and upper decks. The expansive owner’s suite, meanwhile, will take up 80 square metres and include a private deck area.

Other deck areas include a large Jacuzzi, bar and seating on the sundeck, a choice of alfresco dining facilities and a helipad. Guests will be able to make use of these alongside a sauna, steam room, massage salon and gymnasium.

Plus, as shown by the renderings, she is expected to feature a spacious waterside beach club, where those on board can relax close to the water as well as access an impressive water toy collection.
