Guests attending the show on Collins Avenue, Miami, will be able to see the unique global adventurer STEEL berthed in the Island Gardens Deep Harbour in Dock 10-17.
Despite her bulky appearance, the ice-class expedition yacht is not a converted research or fishing vessel, but rather one of the most original and bespoke new builds from the UK’s Pendennis Shipyard.
Launched in 2009, she embodies her owner’s wish for a vessel capable of traversing latitudes more north and south than conventional superyachts dare to sail.
Her ice-classed A1 and MCA approved steel hull, therefore, allows her to sail head-on into any unknown territory and she has an incredible 5,200nm range, meaning she’ll run out of provisions before she runs out of fuel.
The yacht also boasts superb sea-keeping abilities due to her rounded stern underbody, which aids stability when cruising, and four Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizers, which substantially reduce roll at anchor.
What’s more, she is definitely not short of luxurious amenities. She features an extensive sundeck, an active-current spa pool and an extensive selection of water toys. While, inside, her unconventional layout offers Cuban mahogany and lacquer joiner work, a main salon with a fully-equipped gentlemen’s bar, a ‘tall’ dining salon and a gymnasium deck.
Able to accommodate up to 12 guests, she boasts one double cabin, four twin cabins and one twin cabin.
