Like having two boats
Like our Sport Yachts and the newer Flybridge models, the SUV embraces a single, much larger, flexible saloon seating design that multifunctions for dining, cocktail, coffee, reading, lounging, even extra sleeping.
Up ahead of that is the protected command helm centre, comfortably sheltered within this main deckhouse saloon. It’s like having a very spacious Enclosed Flybridge on the main deck level.
And back aft, a new galley design sits centre-stage between the saloon and cockpit, in quiet conversational proximity to the aft-facing mezzanine lounge, just outside.
But that’s really, like any traditional Flybridge, the only fixed amenities (apart from copious side lockers and sink/fridge), in the entire large cockpit area. Stowable tables and chairs can be brought out when needed.
More room and more style
Super-efficient use of space is fully capitalised upon below decks, indebted to CAD and the IPS propulsion configuration.
This opens the way for guest accommodations to dominate amidships and extend beam-to-beam, offering up to three additional berths. Yet leaving plenty of spare volume for large, concealed cupboard space.
The opulent Master Stateroom forward allows for a queen size island bed of a full two metres in length. The bed is also a useful storage facility itself with large drawers under and flanked by
full-length wardrobe hanging space.
In between both these large staterooms there is plenty of room for two generous and beautifully appointed bathrooms: a guest/day head aft to starboard and an ensuite for the master forward to port.
It’s down in this area that you’ll probably notice, even more, another advancement that the 445 SUV ushers in:
International yacht interior designer Georgia Dirudi has created an entirely fresh design scheme for internal spaces.
It introduces a whole new-look palette of calming but warm colours: champagne, crème, straw, manila with a fresh touch of colour; in surfaces of laminate, leather, suede, mirror, American oak, plush sisal carpet and subtle waffle fabric textures.
