Since its announcement in 2008, Porsche Design’s first entry into the mega-yacht market has kept the entire world buzzing. The watery endeavor which is being developed with the Singapore based company Royal Falcon Fleet will conclude with a 135 foot massive twin-hull yacht with a timeless, clear and unmistakable design with the best materials and most contemporary furnishings. The RFF 135 marks an exciting addition the 21st century mega-yacht industry that will continue to shock and awe for years to come.
The RFF 135 is truly the first of its kind, combining grace, elegance and speed, will definitely be the ultimate in billionaire boy’s toy. This mega yacht which can house 10 guests and 10 crew members, has an interior that parallels the sleek and elegant lines found on the yacht’s exterior. The opulent living quarters found on the RFF 135 are spread over 4 decks, where a generous 470 square-meters of interior space complement over 200 square-meters of external deck area. Those lucky enough to ever get on the boat will be able to relax in a plunge pool on the fly-bridge or sit and talk in the viewing area towards the bow. The main deck of the boat includes a “panorama lounge” which will offer uninterrupted end-to-end views of the boat as well as a luxurious Grand Saloon that has only the most modern and high-tech furnishings in whites and blacks.
Accommodations in the yacht will have superior craftsmanship and details that will create a pleasant and opulent atmosphere for all those who travel. Guests will be able to choose from 3 superb staterooms with large tinted windows, affording those in the room a magnificent view of the ocean, as expected each stateroom comes with its own en-suite contemporary bathroom. The exquisite master suite is suited in the mid-deck, giving the owner of the vessel as much privacy from the guests staterooms nearby. The presidential suite, with its will have its own walk-in closet and a grand bathroom, that is surrounded by tinted windows opening directly on to the seas. A master lounge will be next to the master bedroom with sliding doors that will lead the owners to a private deck in what is really unparalleled luxury.
The Royal Falcon Fleet mega yacht series has been designed in Europe by Porsche Design both on the exterior as well as interior which is graced by the best furniture. Upon first glance, the RFF 135 appears to hover on the water rather than float, which is due to its futuristic aerodynamic design that is more of yacht-meets-a-spaceship rather than yacht-meets-a-boat or vessel. The mega-yacht which is typically fitted out in sleek silver-white also comes in racing red and glittering gold and has inset window-screens and windows that give off that “need for speed” look. Truly the first in its class, the RFF 135 is heralding a new era of marine sophistication.
Turning this yacht from a dream to a reality has been a lot of work by two renowned companies. Since the yacht’s conception, Porsche Design and Royal Falcon have been working with the best suppliers and companies that the boat world has to offer. For the construction they chose the primer in the field: Kockums shipyard in Sweden; Imtech for integrated systems; Incat Crowther for catamaran naval engineering; and Greenline for interiors to mention a few. As of May 2010 the completed RFF 135 arrived at the Kockums – Muskö shipyard in Sweden where the yacht will be worked on before being launched.
The RFF135 is powered by twin MTU engines and MJP water-jets from Sweden, allowing the yacht to hit a cruising speed of 30 knots and deliver a sprint speed of 35 knots as well as a range of 2000 nautical miles. The RFF 135 which is being called the “first of a new breed of ultramodern mega yachts” will push the boundaries of existing vessels with its very latest technology, its graceful form and superb design that looks cool both in the Mediterranean as well as in the Caribbean. The RFF 135 will soon be joined by the newer and bigger RFF 211′ mono-hull which will include a helipad amongst other features. Price for the RFF 135 will be around a whopping EUR 35,000,000, for those who might be interested.
