VSY teams up with Hot Lab for 67m explorer yacht concept
Italian yard Viareggio Superyachts (VSY) has announced its latest concept, a 67 metre explorer yacht developed in collaboration with Hot Lab.
The Hot Lab 67 M Explorer by VSY was revealed last week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) which reveals both innovative design and elegance.
The Hot Lab 67 M Explorer by VSY will feature all the characteristics of a modern and absolutely contemporary yacht. It is a project that combines the sober elegance with typical Italian taste and savoir-faire, with the aim of making this yacht a point of reference in the category.
According to the Michele Dragoni, the partner of Hot Lab in charge of styling “The 67M Explorer presents all the most demanding requirements in modern yachts, but is built around a concept that is very faithful to the original explorer yacht concept”.
The external layout, is elaborate and coherent, is more modern. The transom does not foresee external stairs, as access aboard is by retractable gangway, while the vertically opening door connects the large beach club with the swimming platform.
The aft part of the main deck is completely flush and when cleared of freestanding furniture is suitable for helicopter use. To facilitate take-off and landing operations, winches and other deck hardware are concealed beneath the main deck, whereas access to the beach club area from the main deck is provided by a large hatch.
“The play on alternating full and empty spaces as one climbs from one deck to another in the beautiful superstructure is most probably the most characteristic stylistic feature of the exteriors on the Hot Lab 67 M Explorer by VSY” adds Dragoni.
“The interiors of the yacht are fairly classic and are the result of painstaking studies aimed at optimally balancing outdoor and indoor spaces with the volumes of the yacht” – declares Antonio Romano, partner of Hot Lab and marketing manager of the Milanese studio.
There are two options with the drawing table, with either six or seven cabins. The common denominator will be represented by the presence of large windows on three of the four decks, which is flooded with natural light. Other characteristic features are the owner’s suite, located at the forward end of the upper deck with a breath-taking 180-degree view over the sea, private studio and two dedicated bathrooms for him and for her.
The yacht will also feature a sky lounge with glazed windows on three sides, a panoramic gym located on the bridge deck and an oversized beach club that, ensuring a good family relaxing and wellness choices.
Viareggio Superyachts are also developing the 63.8m VSY Hull 003 which is due to launch next year.
