Motor Yacht AVANTI is a stunning superyacht built in Germany by the Lürssen shipyard possessing an opulent interior and exterior by Winch Design. The design brief required a private Owner’s area, professional dive center, capacious tender storage, and the ability to cruise for thirty days at a time. She features five elegant decks with immense open spaces for entertaining.
Winch incorporated a French Deco design throughout AVANTI, a more masculine version of the sumptuous Art Deco movement. The resulting interiors are incredibly chic as well as comfortably French with an American twist. Some of the interior allure comes from the appropriate use of color and beautiful stonework, which plays a strong role in the detailing and features thirty different stones selected from Antelli stonecutters in Verona, Italy. The lighting throughout AVANTI is indirect and balancing the French feel is the freestanding spiral stainless staircase, inspired by old movie sets.
The forward salon on the deck above enjoys an illuminated ceiling that soars to four meters creating an immense feeling of space and with stylized ventilation grills and furniture which further the expression of the French Deco theme. This upper salon also boasts a Linn media center with surround sound.
AVANTI accommodates twelve guests, along with sixteen expert crew members, in considerable style with an immense Owner’s suite, VIP suite, and four additional staterooms. The Owner’s suite is a two-story apartment that lies forward on the main and upper decks. Incorporating sleeping, dressing, and relaxation spaces, an office, and an outdoor lounging area, this is a truly self-contained suite. Notable amenities of the Owner’s full-beam suite include his and her bathrooms and his and hers walk-in wardrobes and dressing rooms. A hallway leads to the Owner’s Observation Lounge while the Owner’s Sun Deck gives the owner plenty of privacy without denying guests use of the deck. The VIP suite lies aft on the upper deck, while the four additional staterooms are located on the lower deck. Two of the staterooms link to make an additional VIP suite.
