Newly refitted luxury yacht Encore presents extremely well with a new interior and freshly painted exterior. The Transformational refit program offers the revitalization and customization of medium aged vessels that are structurally sound and have many years of safe and reliable service ahead. The program provides for a full new interior, new exterior paint, modification and styling upgrades, mechanical and system upgrades resulting in what is effectively a new yacht at a fraction of the cost to build.

Encore superyacht is an fusion of a yacht that was originally built by Crescent Custom Yachts to Bureau Veritas standards with an completely new interior and modernized exterior styling. Mechanical systems, electronics and hotel services have also been significantly upgraded but in most cases replaced. Yachts management systems are state of the art.

Starting with the expansive swim platform it can be seen that the Encore yacht has been prepared for all levels of water sports and careful consideration to boarding from a tender has been taken into account. The decks are finished using Marine Deck’s cork which proves to be superior, requires a fraction of the maintenance, outperforms, and more comfortable than wood applications.A large watertight hatch provides access to the spacious storage in the lazarette.

Dual port and starboard stairways provide access to the aft deck which features undercover moulded dinette seating, inlaid wood dining table, fully retractable entertainment system and highly polished stainless railings and deck fittings. Overhead LED lighting and speakers makes this a very pleasant area to enjoy a meal or simply relax.

A starboard staircase provides ready access to the Encore superyach’s deck where the 15’ Novurania with bimini tip and a 90hp Yamaha 4 stroke along with a Honda AquaTrax PWC are stored. Launching is easily handled with the Nautical Structures hydraulic davit. For those larger entertaining functions, the tender chocks are quickly removed from the stainless inserts leaving a clean flush deck.

Again speakers, low and high voltage lighting are available for a multiple of uses. Continuing up the starboard side, access to the main exterior entertaining area (flybridge) can be negotiated while still maintaining a firm hold on a drink or two. The built in 8 person Hydrojet Spa-tub offers fantastic 360° views while still protected from the sun via the large hardtop.

A comfortable padded rattan sectional provides a sociable setting for meals, drinks, or just relaxing in the shade. Also on the top deck is a large barbeque, fridge and sink hosted in a useable cabinet/counter that allows for meal preparation. For those sun worshipers, additional rattan pods provide many configurations for relaxing or socializing in the sun on the aft portion of this uppermost deck.

The full beam salon has a creative combination of dark oak, light wool carpets accentuated with a 50” Synergy digital fireplace creating a cozy environment with or without the added feature of heat. Once the large entertainments system is summoned via remote the salon has the added feature of many forms of entertainment or web browsing. There is also a small workstation complete with basic office tools. The forward section of the salon incorporates a large 8 person dining table, above the table and anchoring the room is commissioned custom artwork (Christine Breakell-Lee). Custom furniture by Durante using only the finest textiles, down, and memory foam are featured throughout the Encore yacht.

Moving forward along the starboard companionway is the day head and access to the bridge and sky lounge. The interior transitions into a classic New England styled country kitchen with a central island that has seating. There is also a cozy booth option for enjoying casual dining. Galley millwork is finished in classic white that contrasts well with the warmth of the dark hardwood flooring. Cesar stone counters, a full entertainments system and world class appliances make this room one of the best in any yacht.

Forward of the galley is the large VIP stateroom. This extra roomy cabin boasts a unique ensuite, a walk in closet, full entertainment system and is often mistaken to be the master suite.

The port companionway from the salon has access to the “doghouse” this is a very well finished room that hosts all of the low voltage systems like the audio visual, wifi, satellite, ft Navision, monitoring and many more pertinent components of the ships systems.

Heading forward in the port companionway leads you down to the lower foyer where one can access the full beam master. Separate closets and storage areas along with settees lead you to two individual ensuites which share a double shower. Again a full entertainments system compliments the amenities.

Off of the same foyer is a well laid out laundry room featuring miele laundry and a classic sink and counter arrangement. The aft side of the lower foyer allows access to the two remaining guest cabins one has a queen size memory foam mattress the other two large memory foam singles that can be joined. Both rooms enjoy spacious ensuites incorporating stone counters/floors/walls. Entertainment systems, storage and heated bathroom floors round out the features.
