THIS STUNNING NEW SUPERYACHT IS BASED ON A DESIGN FROM THE ’30S

We’re all for sleek modern yachts that always look as though they’re traveling at breakneck speed. But there’s something undeniably appealing about this cool new superyacht based on a design from the 1930s. Costing north of $20 million, the 126-ft. Taransay, recently completed by Italy’s Rossinavi shipyard and just unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show, looks like a classic wooden steam yacht but in fact features a state-of-the-art steel hull and aluminum superstructure and all mod cons.

The original UK-built Taransay was one of the most handsome yachts of her day before being drafted into service as a fire engine vessel in the Royal Navy during World War II. The modern version was cleverly conceived of by Studio Tassin Design. The yacht can accommodate up to ten guests in five luxurious cabins, as well a crew of seven. Rich dark wood paneling appears throughout the ship along with natty nautical accents and antique kilim upholstery in a nod to the original 1930s interior.

In addition to all the satellite and internet tech you’d expect to find on any modern yacht, there are clever touches like the “smokestack” which conceals a folding hydraulic crane for lifting tenders and toys in and out of the water. And she’s certainly no slouch in regards to performance, powered by twin Caterpillar C18 Acert engines good for a maximum speed of 14 knots, a cruising speed of 12 knots, and a range of 3,500 nautical miles. Perfect for putting some hairy-chested clown in a plastic speedboat firmly in his place.
