After the award Luuk expressed his deep satisfaction that the yachting industry as a whole enthusiastically endorsed his vision, five years in the making, of a new era in smart thinking and innovation in the superyacht arena. “When I started out with the Curvelle programme I had already had years of immersion in all aspects of the yachting business, from yacht brokerage giants like Camper and Nicholsons to development and construction of large yachts in China and later as Marketing Director of Abu Dhabi MAR. Drawing on this experience I had come to the conclusion that something completely new in the way of thinking was needed to deliver a compact, cost effective, efficient, roomy, stable and stylish motor yacht. I put together a talented team to produce a range of yachts that boasts Dutch vision, Australian naval architecture, Italian styling, UK interior designer and Turkish build quality. The result speaks for itself and is clearly endorsed by this prestigious award from the Yachts International Magazine group.”

Every part of the Quaranta yacht design was an opportunity to think through a different way to do things. The basics were a fast, stable catamaran constructed in a carbon hybrid composite (believed to be the world’s largest). This configuration formed the design platform to use the extra space and volume to be really creative as the programme developed. Huge picture windows in the main accommodation with it’s unique re-configurable layouts; powered stern platform that can take the custom tender, a 4×4 car, wheelchair or a submarine…and then be a beach club! This is a 34m yacht that thinks it is a 45m one, a spiral staircase or a lift to the jacuzzi deck (or a custom mobility option) illustrates why this yacht took the Yachts International Magazine ‘innovation’ award.

Curvelle will exhibit charter yacht ‘quaranta’ at the Istanbul Yacht Show (September 21st to 29th 2013), explaining their vision of the future for the Curvelle range and the Syndicate Ownership offering that will make owning a piece of luxury yachting that much affordable.
