Walking the incomparable 50m/134ft motor yacht VERTIGE at the Monaco Yacht Show, the team at YachtCharterFleet got up close and personal to the latest award-winner to join the charter fleet.
Joining in on her official debut, the editorial team learned everything there is to know about the brand new delivery from Tankoa Yachts.
Bursting onto the superyacht scene earlier this year, VERTIGE quickly earned a reputation for herself as she spent her first summer around the hotspots of the Mediterranean.
What's more, she won an award for ‘Best Exterior 38m-50m’ at the World Yacht Trophies 2017 and landed a debut at the Monaco Yacht Show later in the same month.
Stepping on board following her highly anticipated unveiling, it became immediately apparent why VERTIGE is such an exceptional motor yacht for charter purposes.
Exuding an inviting calm, the main salon of luxury yacht VERTIGE abounds in neutral tones and textures, and is furnished with a range of large sofas and a separate dining area.
Working closely with Francesco Paszkowski, the Italian designer responsible for both the interior and exterior of VERTIGE, the owner reportedly insisted on having ‘permanent visual contact with the ocean’.
The fulfilment of this ambitious brief is evident in the floor-to-ceiling windows which run along the port and starboard sides, allowing guests to look out across the water whilst enjoying plenty of natural light.
What's more, the bulkwarks on the exterior have had sections removed in order to provide even greater access to views of the water.
Creating the perfect environment to socialise and unwind in, the main salon is undoubtedly the place to be once the warmth has left the exterior.
Indeed, with a large television screen, ample seating, and even a games table, parties can gather here to reflect on their day or simply enjoy each other’s company.
Loaded with state of the art features and furnishings, the interior of superyacht VERTIGE serves as a highly luxurious retreat
Though families and friends may find themselves enjoying most of their meals al fresco, the formal dining area is perfect for special occasions or a change of scenery.
The sparing use of colour used throughout both the communal and guest spaces also means that there is a cozy atmosphere which is at the same time made to feel highly spacious.
A suitably seductive alternative to the main salon, the sky lounge features its very own full-size bar and can be transformed into an intimate home cinema to keep everyone entertained with the latest blockbusters.
Aligned with the brief of non-stop ocean views, the sky lounge is flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows which can be obscured to enhance the movie watching experience.
Like the lounging area below, this space also benefits from ample seating and informal coffee tables so that guests can relax in style whilst taking in views of the ocean.
Unquestionably the most attractive aspect of the guest accommodation, the master suite boasts its very own retractable balconies to board and starboard.
Forming a seamless connection between the superyacht and the ocean, these balconies are the ideal spot for the principal charter guest to enjoy a morning coffee as well as an evening cocktail.
Besides this revolutionary addition, the master suite also includes its very own lounging space which allows the occupant to kick back in privacy whenever they desire.
Ultimately,with his and hers en-suite facilities and a generously proportioned walk-in closet, guests staying in this suite are handsomely provided for.
Making her particularly appealing to groups or multiple families, superyacht VERTIGE features an extra master cabin on the main deck.
An impressive feat for a superyacht of her size, this unusual cabin configuration has never been seen on a vessel measuring 50m before.
Of course, the implications of this are that more guests can enjoy a similar quality of stateroom whilst away on a private yacht charter vacation.
The remaining 3 doubles and twin cabin are located on the lower deck, and this assortment of cabins allows her to sleep up to 12 guests at one time.
Sourcing artwork from a range of traditions, the decorative flourishes found on board VERTIGE are sure to engage and impress guests.
From African-inspired statues to striking pieces of modern photography, the pieces which line the walls and corridors make the interior something of a floating gallery.
The warm textures which are found in the communal and guest spaces also help to provide a unique character to the superyacht.
Stepping out onto the exterior from the main deck aft, guests are welcomed by an outdoor lounge with both shaded and exposed sections. Formed of two C-shaped sofas, this set-up benefits from a nearby bar to keep refreshments flowing throughout the day.
The upper deck is where the alfresco dining takes place, with a large table situated just aft of the sky lounge capable of seating all of the guests on board.
Up on the sundeck, a large Jacuzzi is situated in close proximity to yet another bar, allowing guests to cool off in true style once they’re done sunning themselves.
Equipped with all of the most desirable features, the exterior of superyacht VERTIGE is in every respect a charter guest’s paradise
There is also a retractable 3m long terrace located along the aft, with a set of stairs descending to the water. Naturally, this feature allows guests to easily access the water or simply enjoy an expanded space.
Altogether, the various sections which comprise the exterior allow parties to spend time in the sun doing exactly as they please.
As might be expected, VERTIGE comes with an impressive array of water toys, Jet skis, and a service tender all stored inside of a 7m tender garage.
Another highly flexible space, the beach club of superyacht VERTIGE can be transformed into an impressive gymnasium should such an arrangement be desired. With all of the latest equipment to hand, those on board will have no difficulty enjoying a workout by the water side.
When in its unchanged state, the beach club is the perfect place to kick back by the waves or dive in from the spacious swim platform.
With a television fixed to the port side, it’s also possible to kick back with some onscreen entertainment around this part of the yacht.
The retractable balconies attached to both the communal and guest spaces are sure to enhance the experience of being around her cruising grounds.
Indeed, as VERTIGE spends her summers in the Mediterranean and her winters in the Caribbean, guests will be able to be form an even greater connection with the world’s finest waters.
Perfect for entertaining, the retractable balcony on the main deck aft ultimately enlarges the space guests have to enjoy the sun and surroundings.
