Vasara’s naval architecture is by Reichel/Pugh and she features interiors by Design Unlimited. Vasara was built by McConaghy Boats at their shipyard near Sydney, Australia.
Design Unlimited were tasked with creating a versatile and dynamic interior that achieved dual purpose, complementing both this yacht’s performance edge and providing the ability for comfortable cruising and overnight stays.
The layout features a master cabin forward, which benefits from ample storage and an ensuite shower room. The central saloon has a lounge and dining area to port, and a navigation desk to starboard. The saloon is open plan to the galley, creating a great social arrangement, and enhancing the perception of space. To aft, there are two guest cabins that share a bathroom.
The accommodation has been configured for sailing with friends and family, primarily. Comfort was a priority, so fabric bolsters and premium mattresses were selected. When speed takes precedence, however, the two guest cabins can be converted to crew accommodation with lightweight bedding and fold-down pipe cots.
The interior design works with the lines and structure of the exterior, rather than hiding it behind cladding and panelling, and ‘floating’ furniture was used to increase the visible floor space. Accented by architectural lighting, the result is an interior that gives the impression of space, includes all the home comforts, and has been completed with exceptional attention to detail.
