The fractional ownership super-yacht company, YachtPlus, launched its first yacht – The Ocean Emerald – in La Spezia, Italy on April 25 in the presence of Norman Foster.
This contemporary 41 metre yacht has been designed with a strong emphasis on space and light and has five suites for up to 12 guests, who will be looked after by a permanent, highly trained crew of seven. The internal planning of the yacht offers total flexibility to respond to the diverse requirements of the owners and their guests and keen attention has been paid to design and detail ranging from the internal (2,790sqft) and external (2,495sqft) areas to cutlery, crockery, fabrics and crew uniforms. All furnishings and fittings are provided by the Italian manufacturer Cassina and kitchen and galley equipment by Schiffini.

All arrangements from bookings to transport, private jet, helicopter transfers and onboard requests will be taken care of thereby further enhancing the ultimate experience in hospitality, service and luxury.
Ocean Emerald will be the first of four identical Foster + Partners designed super-yachts to be launched by the company over the next two years. The second yacht, Ocean Pearl will enter service in the autumn 2009 and the third, Ocean Sapphire in the early part of 2010. The fourth yacht, as yet unnamed, is scheduled to launch in the latter part of 2010.

    I would hope for just a little more for the bathrooms, but that is usually where I am disappointed...Still I think I could find a way to enjoy this.

    the day shots of the exterior and great, but I'd wish for some more interior shots to get a feel for the utilization of space. the nights shots look like a cheap nightclub in comparison.
