In our 2022 Tried & Tested, yacht toy specialist EAMS and a group of captains and crew review a selection of the very best luxury water toys on the market. Find out which toy was crowned the winner...
Set to the stern, and giving the vessel its project name, the concept features a distinctive convertible ‘super stern’ platform that opens a full 180-degrees in order to create a large area for relaxing. This sheltered platform gives the master suite private and direct access to the water, and creates a secondary deck right on the waters edge.
Beneath the folding platform, project Super Stern features a garage for a 3.3m tender, the crane for which is hidden in the yacht’s boom.
The Dubois concept accommodates a full beam owner’s cabin and two twin guest cabins, all with en-suite bathrooms. There is also accommodation for three crew members aboard.
Designed to be an astute competitor on the superyacht regatta circuit, the vessel is equipped with a sail wardrobe that features a flattop mainsail, blade, code and bowsprit-set gennaker. Her high-tech hull is designed to be built in carbon fibre with a structural Nomex core and vaccum-infused epoxy. She will be equipped with a twin-rudder arrangement with lifting keel for shallow water cruising.
Set to launch in 2017, the Super Stern has been designed for a current Dubois client, who, according to the design studio, is an experienced owner and superyacht regatta participant. The brief was presented for a sailing yacht that is a fast competitor on the racecourse, while not compromising on luxury comfort for family-oriented, bluewater cruising.
According to Dubois, the build yard and interior design team for the project are still yet to be decided on.
