If you have a profound love for sportfishing, occasionally getting your hands on the biggest marine catches in the world, you would fairly understand that the public yachting proposition may turn out to be a mismatch in the magnitude of the endeavor.
The smaller yachts often tend to diffuse the thrill that comes with catching the biggest fighting fish in the world. Moreover, if you intend to couple this with luxury, it often becomes a difficult proposition to balance it out while retaining the authentic fishing experience.
Hence, presenting the overlying conundrum with a bespoke fishing experience.
Vripack’s 171-Foot Wonder
The Dutch naval architect company, Vripack is trying to create value for the bespoke sportfishing setting with their super-luxe sport fisherman, which they claim would be fascinating with the coveted title of “World’s Largest Sportfish Superyacht.”
Codenamed as Project 406, the design would be the 30-knot ‘Battlewagon’, fully deployed for catching the popular swordfish and sailfish from the corners of the globe for your ultimate sportfishing endeavors.
The model is primed to start with its construction phase at the Royal Huisman Naval Yard in the Netherlands; hence it is just a while before the sportfishing aficionados get the first-hand chance to realize the true potential of bespoke luxury fishing experience.
The motivation behind the model is to ensure that this naval prodigy acts primarily as a sport fisherman, augmenting its profile with the sublime class of superyachts.
The focus of the 171-foot Super-Fisherman is making inroads into the luxury fishing industry, revolutionizing it with the fisherman yachts that exude an exclusive sense of opulence within the sportfishing experience.
The elaborate six-deck structure gives the superyacht an edge when compared to the typical American battlewagons employed for sophisticated sportfishing adventures. Moreover, it has been conceived with the motivation to achieve the targeted 30-knot-plus top speed.
The horsepower is certainly something the company is intently fixated on, a sentiment vehemently echoed by Vripack co-creative director Bart M. Bouwhuis who mentioned,
“You can’t fool nature if you want a 171-foot boat to go 30 knots, it will have the significant horsepower.”
The path paved to achieve this immense feat within the context of sportfishing is slashing the weight of the model’s overall structure. The hull and superstructure will be made of Alustar aluminum, a super-strong, high-tensile alloy.
To retain the intrinsic sportfishing experience while providing a bespoke setting, the proportions have been exacted to firmly correspond with the traditional fishing yachts while shunning their limitations in power and under-sized cockpit.
This consideration has been meticulously catered to while furnishing the 171-foot ‘Sportfishing Battle Wagon’ design.
The project overlays this limitation with an oversized cockpit with a vintage varnished wood chair. The pit is placed close to the water level, providing the capacity for the upper decks to be seamlessly incorporated into the overall design.
This decision is significant for the sportfishing spectacle since the decks face the stern, providing a panoramic view of the vigorous sportfishing activity transpiring below in the cockpit. The scene only gets better with upper decks, as the one on the very top would furnish an invigorating full 360-degree view of the pristine marine scene.
In addition to the sportfishing facility, the superyacht is nothing short of a bespoke luxury accommodation, where there is ample space to relax and recuperate in the glorious marine setting.
The bow is spacious, graciously adorned with sofas and plush seating areas to enjoy the exotic sun-drenched platforms. Moreover, the floors on the top are a sublime amalgamation of the picturesque views of the oceanic spectacle and the sportfishing setting, magnanimously providing a great retreat when the luck with fishing runs out.
Vripack’s 171-foot long yacht design is truly a bespoke composition of the sport fishermen and superyacht combined, providing an ideal companion for your nifty retreats to exotic marine adventures.
