At 73.15 meters, LAUREL is one of the largest custom yachts built in the United States since the early part of last century. Styled by Donald Starkey Design with naval architecture and marine engineering by the Delta Design Group, the goal was to create a classically beautiful yacht that is performance-focused for maximum efficiency. Her lightweight composite superstructure helps minimize her deck-to-deck heights and lowers her profile to create a sleeker and tighter overall look. While LAUREL impresses all with her elegant entrance and refined stern, the Delta Design Group created a hull form that is both remarkably fuel-efficient and sea-kindly in all conditions.
Outdoor spaces on LAUREL are inviting and versatile. Teak woodwork stretches to the horizon, beckoning guests to explore the many levels on which to take in the inspiring outdoors. The transom door acts as a swim platform and diving ledge for scuba enthusiasts. Two hull doors on the port and starboard sides allow easy deployment for tenders for day trips and travels to port. Also stowed here are sailboats, jet skis, and sea kayaks for water fun.
The interior features a sumptuous and soothing palette of golden neutrals. Color and texture unite, creating a sense of interior harmony throughout LAUREL. Each room features bright and brilliant artwork, adding vibrant expression throughout the yacht’s evocative interior spaces. Inside the main salon, handsome woodwork creates an atmosphere both stately and soothing. The airy sky lounge, with its cream walls and comfortable furniture, envelopes guests in natural light.
As impressive and history-making as she is in size, she is also a benchmark of efficiency: her engine room, equipped with twin Caterpillar 3516 engines, is both functional and accessible. She provides a high level of pollution prevention, safety, and security measures applicable to worldwide operation. No matter where she journeys, LAUREL continues to beguile the world, and certainly, all who witness her firsthand.
