Brazilian yacht maker Intermarine is offering an ultra luxury yacht dubbed Intermarine 55 that was produced in collaboration with BMW DesignworksUSA. The Intermarine 55 has a price tag of $2.2 million and is set to go on sale this July.
This yacht was inspired by modern architecture and automotive surfacing, such as the BMW X6. It measures 57-foot long and will be offered in two engine options that include 2×670hp endurance (with a cruising range of 350 nautical miles and a top speed of 31 knots) and a 2×800hp power option (with a 300 nautical miles range and a top speed of 35 knots).
The new yacht features two head compartments, a master suite with a queen-sized bed and an enclosed shower. Instead of circular portholes, Intermarine 55 uses large trapezoids that let in more light and excellent ocean views. Intermarine 55 has three cabins and two head compartments, including a master suite.
Its galley is surrounded by windows and it also features a main salon, near a dining table, with a fridge, stove and microwave as standard equipment. Right beside the U-shaped sofa is a cooler, some cabinets and a dining area (with sink, barbecue and counter space).
In addition, there is a large solarium at the shaped top deck right in front of the upper helm station. The yacht also features a couch and a dining table, a small sofa and storage with an extra sink, barbecue and refrigerator.
When it comes to the boat’s exterior, DesignworksUSA tried its best to offer an innovative design which is reflected in its powerful, refined and elegant lines. The big windows have an atypical shape while at the same time providing an unobstructed view of the sea.
The hull side windows are also unusually shaped, so you won’t see any oval or circular porthole commonly used in designing boats. Instead, Intermarine 55’s portholes are an integrated part of the big windows and are shaped like a trapezoid, which enables the interior to be well lit and visible.
Aside from that, they definitely add to the charm and beauty of the new boat. Actually, the lines in the hull are a familiar sight in the automotive industry but they’ve been successfully adapted in the nautical world. There are other details notable on Intermarine 55 that also come from the automotive world, such as the stainless steel air intakes.
The bow is at a precisely defined angle and brings a powerful presence to the boat, making it really original. When it comes to the interior of Intermarine 55, its objective is to offer maximum space and openness. The inspiration was based on modern architecture so its interior is rich with natural light and the reflexions of light, which makes the environment comfortable and warm.
Large windows are prominent in the cabins, salon and bathrooms, all of them offering a clear view of the sea. The doors of the salon are ideally integrated with the stern region. This is accomplished through three door panels. The weather in places such as Brazil makes open transitions ideal, permitting optimal time on the deck.
