YN19255 Project Pollux55m Steel
Current Build Phase
The systems commissioning is another big moment in the building process. This includes her maiden voyage to the North Sea where we perform extensive sea trials.
The 55m Steel encompasses proven efficiency with sophisticated style.
Advanced naval architecture from Van Oossanen utilises the FDHF hull form to ensure performance and power. Combined with exterior design by Omega Architects, she offers a spacious volume of 760GT.
Innovative use of glass throughout provides an abundance of natural light and choice of panoramic vista after panoramic vista. The full beam sky lounge and main saloon embody this. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead to outdoor seating, dining and relaxation areas, delivering a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor.
At the heart of the design is the owner’s stateroom, where an 82-squaremetre retreat awaits on the main deck. Elsewhere, ten guests are accommodated across five staterooms – all with en-suite facilities.
A unique dedicated wellness area is accessible via the beach club, with the sun deck incorporating plenty of room for soaking up the best of the yacht life. Powered by two MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, the 55m Steel achieves a top speed of 15.5 knots with a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
The full beam sky lounge is found on the wheelhouse deck and leads out to a spacious seating and dining area. A unique feature to the 55m Steel’s three sister ships, the VIP stateroom is also found on this deck. An additional comfortable seating area is located at the bow - ideal for taking in spectacular
views whilst cruising.
The sophisticated interior of this yacht was created by the British design duo Bannenberg & Rowell. A blend of natural, noble tones and a tailored spatial arrangement lends the environment gravitas and wide appeal. Smoked Oak chevron parquet flooring, white Thassos, grey St. Laurent and ivory Travertine marble throughout, with occasional warm bronze accents, underwrite fine workmanship and furnishings. Smart design, refined materials and effortless comfort combine to provide an elegant welcome.
