Strand Craft 166 by Gray Design is one super yacht with a supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 28, 2010

The Strand Craft 166, which is designed entirely around an automotive theme, is a steadfast superyacht that is daring as it is outrageous (also check the previous Strand Craft 122). Customers who want that new leather smell would surely love this yacht. Adding to the yacht's sleek profile are the radar mast and retractable flybridge that retreat into the skin of the yacht when not in use. Both can be deployed independently of each other and are available only when they are required, ensuring the yacht keeps the cleanest possible lines for making that first impression.

Strengthening this philosophy are the twin concealed entrances to the yacht, hiding the stairway to the upper aft deck as well as providing access to the garage, bar and lounge areas.

The yacht's enormous length, low stance and curled haunches lend the vessel a dynamic aesthetic that is certain to turn heads in the most well appointed marinas. Hidden beneath the carbon fiber-inlaid fore deck is a sun deck equipped with a large jacuzzi, sporting a built-in bar to ensure that every party is well catered for.

One can access this deck via a vertically sliding glass door in the windscreen of the pilot house where there is ample seating for 8 guests. The pilot house opens up to the lounge, providing a smooth transition and connection between the driver and the main guest area, and at the same time letting in light from the main windscreen to the spaces below.

To comply with Strand Craft's automotive tradition, the SC166 is equipped with its own custom supercar tender. The tender ensures you can roll out at your favorite port in ultimate style. The tender, with a V8 engine producing 620 horsepower and a top speed of 305 kph, is an accessory that is meant to delight. You can order your own choice of conveyance to accessorize your superyacht.

Whether it’s Maybach, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Koenigsegg or a waterborne tender, the choice is yours. The SC166 has a rich automotive theme, from the cockpit-like glasshouse on the upper deck to the red leather-covered upholstery that adorns large surfaces of the interior. Brushed aluminum trims the bar area and windows and the hallways are bathed in soft LED spotlighting. In every part of the cabin, chrome highlights sparkle and the walls are treated to a highly polished gunmetal automotive lacer.

The SC166 offers the option of having upholstery made from exclusive Japanese Samurai tread leather. These custom designed leathers are woven from a bullet-proof textile made of Vectran fibers. All walls can also be covered in Samurai leather to make it a bullet-proof yacht. The SC166 has five double en-suite staterooms, each equipped with 52 inch Bang & Olufsen TVs, top of the line sound systems, LED mood lighting and a iPad control and information center from Poets Road.

The information center allows you to activate any function from wherever you are on the yacht as well as provides essential information about the running and status of the vessel and its massive engines. The SC166, which is driven by two MTU 20V4000 M93L 2x4300KW (2x5766hp) engines with a Vericor TF50 4177KW (5600hp) booster engine, is capable of cruising speeds of 30 knots with a top speed of 40 knots.

Interior and exterior automotive styling
The automotive theme is rich in the SC166, from the cockpit like glasshouse on the upper deck to the red leather covered upholstery that adorns large surfaces of the interior.
