The design began with the interiors in order to ensure a GA which suited the owner’s vision for the build.
The distinctive elements of Extra 86 includes her spacious layout, lower consumption and extensive navigation autonomy.
Large windows give those onboard the feeling of being in a large crystal dome, which filters light into the internal living areas and offers a 360 degrees panoramic view.
The general arrangement comprises a bow wheelhouse, making for an extremely spacious salon and aft deck which could be used as an “entertainment area for screening late night films outdoors.”
The design of the layout revolves around the desire to ensure maximum liveability in all areas of the yacht, one example of this being the cockpit and beach club measuring over 50 square metres.
The cockpit extends over three levels, sloping down towards the water where the swim platform has a hydraulic mechanism meaning it can lower to below the surface of the water.
At the bow, a large sundeck and a comfortable sofa create a fourth area for relaxing.
The galley is located aft and allows for direct communication with the outdoor dining area, through a large window with an automatic up/down system.
Furnished with white marble, it has that kind of “apartment feeling” which reflects the customer’s practical approach to the project.
The full-beam main salon has a C-shaped leather sofa, made-to-measure by skilled Italian artisans, and a dining table for eight.
Her 25-square-metre flybridge provides a second helm station with two seats, a spacious sunbathing area, semi-circular sofa with a conveniently placed table, and both a bar and barbecue area.
Built in solar panels cover the main salon, generating 5kW to use for a range of utilities and for lighting.
Easily removable carbon poles have been set up on the flybridge and stern cockpit, meaning conveniently placed awnings, usable during navigation, can be unrolled there.
The yacht accommodates eight guests in four cabins, including a full beam master suite, a large VIP and two double cabins, all with en-suite heads.
Featuring two Volvo IPS 1350 engines, Haze reaches a top speed of 21 knots and can navigate in semi-displacement mode even at 12 knots, with a range of 1200 nautical miles.
In the standard version of this model, the 3.25-metre tender is housed under the stern sundeck and moved by means of a hydraulic crane. The tender chosen by the owner for Haze is a Williams 395, fitted on the stern swim platform and handled using a tender lift.
