Superyacht DART values and utilizes technologies for their cleaner, leaner and more efficient operation, thus enhancing performance, luxury and lifestyle too. This is a truly future-proofed yacht that will reward for years into the future consuming less energy, and so needing to produce less energy. It will also be a quieter ship: yet more luxurious in every sense of the word. The burdens of maintenance and regulation will be lower, respect for the environment higher.

These benefits arise from a “Total Energy” approach, where many advanced technologies work in concert. They include programmes to optimise weight, to reduce energy consumption and to extract, exclude or re-cycle waste heat. They include the use of microturbines and alternative energy generation techniques such as hydro-generators in place of traditional diesel generators, together with advanced energy storage and management systems. Royal Huisman has pioneering experience and proven expertise in the application of these technologies, enabling them to deliver “game changing” advantages.

This is not just fresh thinking in design terms, it is also a yacht optimised for sea-going performance and amenity. Above the waterline she may appear a close sister of the DART motor yacht; below the waterline her low-wetted surface area hull, high aspect foils and centreboard are designed for fast passage making and manoeuvrability while retaining access to shoal waters for the perfect anchorage. Excellent stability is assured by the relatively low centre of gravity resulting from DART’s low profile and the internal ballast designed around a deep yet retractable centerboard.

DART yacht’s powerful sail plan is safe and easy to handle yet maintenance-friendly. Features include asymmetric spinnakers that store below deck on retrieval drums; 105% jib with sheets led to captive winches; squaretopped mainsails for aerodynamic efficiency; electrically-driven winches; track-mounted foresail sheet for easy and efficient handling; mainsails double-sheeted for optimum boom control and handled by Rondal ‘style to order’ furling reef booms and breakthrough batten car system.

A lightweight, long range, high performance motor yacht employing very advanced propulsion techniques, offering the benefits of fuel efficiency, high manoeuvrability, lower emissions, and minimal noise and vibration.

DART motoryacht is driven by two azimuthing pulling propellers. A versatile and efficient variable output power generation system will be directed to a twin propulsion set-up that, among many other advantages, supplies added power for a forward and retractable bow-thruster. On passage, at anchor, or holding position over a reef using dynamic positioning, DART provides the ultimate relationship with its surroundings – enabling guests to enjoy the crystal blue waters around them as much as the extensive and luxurious amenities available aboard. Two large tenders, artfully concealed beneath the foredeck, provide fast, safe and weather-protected shoregoing transport. The comprehensive crew facilities are carefully located to ensure the privacy of guests while supporting the very highest standards of service and catering.

DART yacht offers guests an unprecedented connection with the surrounding environment. A central feature of both motor and sail yachts is the terraced aft deck that steps down to the water’s edge and encloses a 5.5m / 18ft fresh water infinity pool. On the main aft decks of both the sailing yacht and the motor yacht, fold-out balconies allow uninterrupted views from the exterior dining area and lounge, enlarging and enhancing this extraordinary living space.

On the Sailing Yacht, the upper deck features a huge open area including a number of large oval sunbeds, Jacuzzi, and a pair of circular tables. The pilot house also sits on this deck with its large dining area. The full height windows are retractable, providing guests with the option of either private or open dining.

On the Motor Yacht, a sculptured spiral staircase links the main deck to the upper deck which features a large open upper salon. Full height windows create an open, light filled, relaxed environment for guests to enjoy. The yacht’s sundeck includes a Jacuzzi, bar and lounging area.

The interior plan maximises the lifestyle benefits of all available space. The main deck includes the main saloon and formal dining area along with a VIP or children’s suite with full height windows. Forward of this is the full beam master suite boasting his and her bathroom / dressing rooms and large windows providing commanding views port and starboard.

Six guest cabins are situated on the lower deck, each with private bathroom and full length, waterline windows providing a unique connection with the outside world. The lower deck includes a cinema, beach club, spa, and gym, all linked to the terraced aft deck and pool via a short staircase.
