The first launch from Turkish shipyard Cizgi Yachts, the 42-meter E&E, also debuted at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Her explorer-style exterior, designed by Vripack, is easy to picture against a rugged backdrop. But she sports an elegant interior by Art-Line with surprises behind every door and the small innovations that the Dutch firm is known for. Open a dayhead door and a beautifully crafted stone sink is revealed. The round dining table expands by adding leaves around the outer edge. The repeated circular pattern can be found on that main table, the backlit marble around the master bed, and the main saloon.
The deck plans are unconventional but suit the needs and desires of the owner, which is what custom boatbuilding is all about. On the upper deck, open a door expecting to find the bridge and you instead find a forward-facing skylounge. All four of the guest cabins, each with exterior access, are on the same upper deck. The captain gets his own deck with his cabin and the bridge, and the crew get the lower deck with roomy cabins.
