Art takes many forms, one of which is the superbly designed yacht. From the shipyard in Ancona, Italy, CRN revealed such a profile with the launch of the lovely Saramour in March of 2014. At 61.3 meters/201.12 feet, her light grey and white hull is sophisticated yet simple, with a graceful stance that hints at the surprises inside.
An exquisite CRN naval design complemented by colorful Francesco Paszkowski interiors, Saramour collected early accolades as an ocean-going gallery. A unique custom deck plan outfitted with gorgeous furnishings, the well-deserved praise for this private superyacht quickly expanded far beyond the noteworthy art, earning finalist status in four categories at the 2015 Showboats Design Awards.
An impressive list of major artists featured on board find favor with the likes of Salvador Dali, Giorgio De Chirico, and Karen Appel. Cabins and saloons are designed around the impressive works, lavishing surfaces with cream marble, canaletto walnut, and burgundy lacquer, creating cabins that don’t simply display each work, but provide well-feathered perches that frame it quite stylishly for guests to enjoy.
The upper deck owner’s suite combines several works of glass with major works on the walls, still reserving an abundance of space dedicated to glazing for the forward-facing view. The private owner’s deck offers extremely private use of its own al fresco deck with spa pool, sky lounge, dining table, and posh sun pads. The lavish owner’s suite bath features an oval tub and exquisite gold leaf wall detail. An office and walk in wardrobe satisfy the owner’s request for the yacht to provide all the comforts of home. An owner’s lounge, separated from the stateroom, allows entertaining with privacy.
The fly deck, tucked between the upper deck and sundeck, is dedicated to wellness, with spa, gym and hammam Beautiful views for workouts and the following cool-down can be followed with a professional massage and relaxation facilities, including an audio-video entertainment system produced by CRN in tandem with Videoworks, using iPad devices as controls.
A circular lobby with glass lift moves guests to the decks, wrapped with an aerial stair. The main deck invites guests into the salon and dining area, with notable art adorning the walls amid Persian rugs, streamlined sofas, and armchairs. A large 55″ TV lowers from the ceiling aft of the dining table, which is constructed of Murano glass supported by a lacquered burgundy base. VIP suites are attended in similar style, with posh touches of color and lovely pieces of fine art. Also on the port side of the main is a professional galley, standing ready to cater a crowd.
In keeping with the owner’s request to stay in touch with the sea, the beach club has all the comforts of a luxurious resort, in addition to an 8.2-m Riva Iseo and a 6.4-m Castoldi in the tender garages. A TV lounge, icemaker, refrigerator, and shower keep guests well groomed and comfortable.
A minimalist decorated with stunning art, Saramour offers a most pleasant experience on board, sleeping 12 guests in 6 cabins, attended by 15 crew. A 4200 nm range at 11 kts. ramps up to a top speed of 16, and a heli pad capable of landing a 3000 kg. craft ensures easy arrivals and departures.
