Named after the legendary 19th-century scientist and explorer, Yersin strives to combine state-of-the-art technology with a range of 15,000 nautical miles for serious exploring.

Boasting a full-displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Yersin has Ice-Class classification for all-weather sailing, with her exterior profile was designed by Pierre Jacques Kubis. Conceived as eco-friendly world cruiser, Yersin has been awarded with Clean class notation for her potentially low impact on the environment. 



The yacht’s versatile layout includes accommodation for large groups plus ample space for pilots and local guides. Her key onboard features include a media centre, library, private cinema, onboard spa, observatory and a vast sundeck with a swimming pool. In addition, Yersin disposes of onboard dining options including two large formal dining rooms for 12, along with two bars.

Yersin’s interior can accommodate up to 12 guests across a master suite, VIP stateroom, two doubles and four twin cabins. Finished in light oak with steel and leather accents, each cabin features a full ensuite bathroom plus IT and entertainment systems. The yacht also has accommodation for a 24-person crew with additional cabins for helicopter/seaplane pilots.



Located on the upper deck, Yersin’s full-beam master suite features a chic modern design with oak flooring and Zebrano veneers. Opening onto a private deck area, the suite comes with a kitchenette, an office and an all-white bathroom finished in Corian quartz with a luminotherapy shower.

Styled by the owner’s own design team, Yersin’s light interior has a fresh modern feel, finished in contrasting shades of oak and Zebrano, while overhead sky-lights highlight her collection of modern art, and a six-level elevator provides guests with easy access to each deck.



On the lower deck, Yersin has a spa and gym area to meet onboard fitness and wellbeing requirements. The area is equipped with a hammam, hairdresser, massage room and spa pool.

The vessel's top deck is dedicated to relaxation with a large swimming pool and built-in sunbeds and loungers for unwinding in the sunshine. A shaded outdoor lounge area is the perfect spot for after-dinner drinks as the sun goes down.



Equipped to explore the most remote regions, Yersin carries a 7.3-metre aluminium barge, two 7.5-metre Zodiac Hurricanes and a side-by-side quad fitted with caterpillar tracks for ice. She also has a professional diving facility onboard plus space for jet skis, canoes, inflatable dinghies and bicycles for onshore adventures.

Based in the South of France, Yersin can be deployed for destinations all around the globe. Her possible charter destinations for the upcoming season comprise Tokyo Olympics 2020, the Cape Verde Islands, British Columbia or Galapagos Islands. What is more, she is capable of a world tour.

Why people used to flip 40-60 m yachts and then stopped
After a growth period of 20-30 meters and megayachts, which is even closer to the recession, there was a short period for high demand for medium-sized superyachts.The market for 40-60 meter yachts, the last of which began to grow before the recession began, has also recently begun to gain momentum, as owners are looking for yachts in order to switch to them with growing disposable incomes. Indeed, if several years earlier it was expected that yachts in this range would be traded at 30-40% at the asking price, this gap narrowed to 25-30% in recent quarters.Shipyards, primarily known for their 20-30-meter yachts, are also expanding their ranges to 40-60 meters in order to keep customers who want to grow in size. For example, Sanlorenzo, which for decades focused on 20-30-meter yachts, put at the beginning of this year its newest flagship - the 64-meter Attila.Atilla is a 64.25m luxury yacht, built by Sanlorenzo and delivered in 2019. Her top speed is 18.0kn and her power comes from two 2375.0hp Caterpillar 3516-C diesel engines. She can accommodate up to 12 people with 18 crew members.Yacht was designed by Officina Italiana Design, and the interior design was created by Francesco Paszkowski.

Magnum 60 Furia by Hammer: the final stages of reconstruction
The Magnum 60 Furia was launched in 2001, designed by Magnum Marine and Ceo Catherine Theodoli. They say that this is the most successful of the Magnum models.Back in 2001, the 120-kilometer 60 Furia Magnum was named the fastest yacht of this size in the world and after extensive repairs at the Perini Navi Hammer shipyard reached higher speeds.Changes include new air intakes in the engine compartment along with a customizable display on the control panel.The new Magnum 60 concept is attractive to the original design, but much more pleasing to the eye, with distinctive details throughout the American style of the 50s. The owner’s room has individual storage solutions on either side of the room to ensure clean space.Marnix Hoekstra from Vripak says that they kept the overall layout and tuning of the boat, but improved it where it was possible, for example, expanding the companion from the saloon in the middle to the double and twin cabins. They also added daylight, and in the interior they used the same tree that was used in the construction of the boat, painting it in matt white.
