BANNENBERG & ROWELL
A 118m for Kusch Yacht
Bannenberg Rowell and Kusch Yachts have renewed their partnership on the design and build of a bold and genuinely radical 118-metre motoryacht. The spine of the boat is the wide, open‐plan stairwell that links the various decks and binds together the crew stairs, pantries and engine casings. This concentration opened up more space for the living areas and gave the designers greater freedom to deconstruct the cosy, inward-looking saloon spaces. The aft main deck area has been lowered to nearer to the water level, turning it into the saddle between the raised pool aft and the winter garden lounge, an exterior space divided by steps running full beam. Another unusual feature is the perching of the wheelhouse on top of the hull to keep it away from guests.
