The 87m Gresham superyacht has been designed with the guest accommodation foremost on the owner’s list of requirements; with the saloon being full width amidships on the upper deck, the full beam of the yacht can be exploited and further expanded by the balconies port and starboard for exterior deck space. A ‘Viewing Lounge’ on the aft bridge deck is cantilevered and overhangs the side of the yacht with full height windows giving an uninterrupted panorama of the sea.

The 87m Gresham yacht has a single flowing line from the bow to aft deck, a design feature which holds the visual balance of the yacht together, the yacht has many original ideas incorporated into the design including the combined Cone shaped Radar/TV Domes which Gresham calls the ‘Scantenna Pods’ to the balconies and the MES lifesaving system which is unusual on a yacht this size and negates the need for external life rafts.

An enclosed mooring room forwards allows the helideck to be on the bow and enclosed mooring rooms aft allow the main aft deck to be free of bollards, capstans and mooring lines to give large clear deck spaces for the guests.
