Rap­sody yachts has an­nounced the launch of its new yacht, the Rap­sody R110. the R110 is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the Rap­sody line-up and is de­signed by dyk­stra Naval ar­chi­tects.

she has smooth lines and a sleek pro­file that will stand out from the crowd. Fur­ther­more, be­low the flush fore­deck the Rap­sody R110 con­ceals a sports car that can be parked on shore with the help of an in­te­grated crane.

pro­vid­ing tai­lor-made per­for­mance, the R110 can be equipped with var­i­ous en­gine and propul­sion ar­range­ments en­abling top speeds in ex­cess of 32 knots.

the yacht will be fully ‘dutch built’ ac­cord­ing to the high­est qual­ity stan­dards.

on deck she fea­tures a jacuzzi, two bars and large sun­bathing pads, all con­tribut­ing to the per­fect out­side liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

“the R110 is a beau­ti­ful ad­di­tion to Rap­sody’s model range. We are renowned for pro­duc­ing vin­tage look­ing day boats that are the right mix be­tween retro looks and mod­ern tech­niques. this yacht is the epit­ome of so­phis­ti­ca­tion and class and we are re­ally pleased with the de­sign,” said diederik van Golen, from Rhap­sody yachts.

the in­te­rior pro­vides ac­com­mo­da­tion for six peo­ple in three cab­ins, while the crew area in the aft ship houses four crew berths and a dedicated crew mess. In­side is the bridge deck, sky lounge with a spec­tac­u­lar 180 de­gree clear view and a large gal­ley. Fur­ther for­ward, the R110 room space has been found for a day head and day shower. the fore ship is fully dedicated to an own­ers cabin and two guest cab­ins.

32+ knots

Thys Nikkels, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and Naval Ar­chi­tect at Dyk­stra NA, said: “The char­ac­ter­is­tic S-shaped pro­file of the ex­ist­ing Rap­sody Range was the big­gest in­spi­ra­tion for the styling of the R110, re­sult­ing in a unique su­per yacht that is in­stantly recog­nis­able as a Rap­sody yacht.”

Hil­bert ten Have, an­other Naval Ar­chi­tect at Dyk­stra NA, added: “The flush fore­deck, large open areas and beach club make this su­per yacht per­fect for en­joy­ing the Mediterranean in style.”

Rap­sody Yachts is a high end yacht man­u­fac­turer based in Heeg, the Nether­lands. Rap­sody Yachts finds its ori­gins in the yacht bro­ker­age, where ex­clu­sive and clas­sic ship­yard boats from the Nether­lands and Scan­di­navia found proud new own­ers. In 1999, as a re­sponse to a grow­ing de­mand for state-of-art mo­tor yachts in the top seg­ments, Rap­sody Yachts started build­ing new clas­si­cally con­toured, high­speed mo­tor yachts. Nowa­days more than 300 Rap­sodys are sail­ing along the coast­lines of West­ern Europe and the Mediterranean.
