Here is a beautiful opportunity to own one of the most elegant, superior technology and highest quality Super Yachts available. Soraya1 has just become available to the market and is an opportunity unlike any other. Soraya 1 is the newest 2012 Super Yacht on the market and has only 10 hours from engine testing, photo’s and yet was never delivered in full.
Gentech envisioned each Soraya yacht to meet the most stringent quality standards. The Soraya engineering team brings their vast experience at pleasing clients with lifestyle enhancing criteria. This takes the well-built yacht to a new level of luxury, quiet and comfort, with many innovations, not found on other yachts. Soraya is committed to this objective.
Styling and design are first and foremost – but that is only the beginning. When you look into the philosophy of Soraya there is so much more: Lifestyle and environmental balance, Sleek Hull form advances for efficiency, comfort and range, plus an insulation which delivers the Lowest Decibels, Low Vibration, and Green Yacht thermal ratings which exceed the criteria’s.
Leading the design team for Soraya is the extremely gifted designer and stylist Jure Bukavec and his design studio UNIELLé. Mr. Bukavec worked closely with MECCANO® whose engineering developed a hull form which will cruise an incredible range of over 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. The hydrodynamic shape of the hull – equipped with a bulbous bow – allows Soraya to perform at speed with half the horsepower requirements of similar sized yachts. UNIELLé® and Meccano had the daunting task of meeting the ergonomic requirements while incorporating those requirements with the styling demands of Gentech – being sized small and nimble enough to berth in most small marinas and small city ports around the world without the need to be on anchor offshore.
Mr. Bukavec has developed styling lines, space plan and interior arrangement to make Soraya stand uniquely alone in concept. When one scrutinizes this design carefully, one will notice that there is no gear on deck to clutter the lines. All cranes, tenders, water toys, fenders and other deck gear are stored inside specially designed closed “garages” on stern and fwd. Forward on the bow is a cleverly designed touch and go helipad which sweeps beyond the sheer line of the forward bulwarks to port and starboard. This helipad, which can be hydraulically raised or retracted into the deck, is a valuable addition to the modern yacht for passenger transportation and emergency use. Aft of the helipad is a well-placed under hatches stored rescue tender. When stowed, the tender and its crane are hidden from view and protected against elements under the hydraulically operated hatch.
Looking aft along the coach roof one sees the dark horizontal window line of the bridge. The communication arch is wing-shaped reaching athwart ship over the sun deck and the electronics mast rises from the center of the arch. Forward of the arch is a unique retractable Sun Deck Awning which gives the guests their choice of sun or shade. The entire vast sun deck has been planned for the utmost enjoyment with a Jacuzzi Tub forward overlooking the bow, ample seating for owners and guests, well-arranged sunning areas and a full service bar.
The stern of Soraya is graceful, functional and very seaworthy for transoceanic voyaging. When at anchor, it becomes the focal point for relaxing and recreation. The entire transom opens up to become a very large teak-lined beach.
The aft main deck area is comfortable and well sheltered from wind and weather so guests may enjoy observing sunsets, water sports or the activities ashore while stern-to in the Mediterranean.
On the aft end of the sky lounge is an incredibly large, protected al fresco dining arrangement equipped with a round table for ten guests.
Throughout the interior on all decks accommodations are luxurious and provide comfort for ten in the owner and guest arrangements. There are five very spacious staterooms and many areas for socialization in either small or large groups or spending private time in quiet reflection. The crew has been given separate service pathways which allow them to attend to guests without disturbing their privacy.
The interior design and décor has been developed by the Ales Bratina. Mr.Bratina and his skilled team pored over every detail to enhance the life style of the owners and guests. Each space was studied for natural and high tech LED illumination, temperature control, acoustical balance, seating and sleeping ergonomics all with an elegant minimalist style paradoxically rich with texture and color which is appealing to the most discerning eye.
