Rigby & Rigby’s M/Y Haze Features on Extra Yachts
View Project here.
Glossy Daytona grey livery that becomes opaque on the superstructure, enhancing her harmonious shape means the very latest unit of the EXTRA 86 model to glide through the water will certainly not go unnoticed. The livery, combined with a contemporary design, gives the yacht a modern personality, making her unique in her genre.
The distinctive elements of EXTRA 86 include her being remarkably spacious for her length, lower consumption and extensive navigation autonomy, as well as onboard settings which focus on direct contact with the sea.
M/Y Haze originated from a design path that began with the interiors, moving out to the exteriors to create the penthouse impression the Owner wanted. Francesco Guida’s modern exterior lines merge perfectly with the Lawson Robb interiors.
With no solution of continuity, the large windows give those onboard the magical feeling of being in a large crystal dome, which filters unparalleled amounts of light into the exclusive internal living areas and offers a 360° panoramic view.
Key features of the general arrangement comprise a bow wheelhouse, making for an extremely spacious salon and aft deck which are just perfect for turning this part of the yacht into an “entertainment area for screening late night films outdoors”.
The design of the layout revolves around the desire to ensure maximum liveability in all areas of the yacht, one example of this being the extraordinary cockpit/beach club measuring over 50 square metres that affords guests the pleasure of living comfortably in close contact with the sea. The cockpit extends over three levels, sloping down towards the water where the swim platform has a hydraulic mechanism meaning it can lower to below the surface of the water.
At bow, a large sundeck and a comfortable sofa create a fourth area for relaxing.
The galley is located aft and allows for direct communication with the outdoor dining area, through a large window with an automatic up/down system. Furnished with white marble, it has that kind of “apartment feeling” which reflects the Customer’s practical approach to the project.
The full-beam main salon presents both a comfortable C-shaped leather sofa, made-to-measure by skilled Italian artisans, and a dining table for eight.
The colour palette of the interiors expertly blends the blue and grey of the leather with the lacquered woods to create an avant-garde, metropolitan style.
Her 25 m² flybridge provides a second helm station with two seats, a spacious sun-bathing area, semi-circular sofa with a conveniently placed table, and both a bar and barbecue area.
Built in solar panels cover the main salon, generating 5kW to use for a range of utilities and for lighting.
Easily removable carbon poles have been set up on the flybridge and stern cockpit, meaning conveniently placed awnings, usable during navigation, can be unrolled there.
As far as accommodation is concerned, the yacht can welcome eight guests in four cabins, including a full beam master suite, a large VIP and two double cabins, all with en-suite heads.
Featuring two VOLVO IPS 1350 engines, HAZE reaches a top speed of 21 knots and can navigate in semi-displacement mode even at 12 knots, guaranteeing a range of 1200 nautical miles.
In the standard version of this model, the 3.25m tender is housed under the stern sundeck and moved by means of a hydraulic crane. The tender chosen by the Owner for Haze is a Williams 395, fitted on the stern swim platform and handled us-ing a tender lift and/or hydraulic crane.
