The 73 metre Laurel Superyacht from Delta Marine

By Adrian Prisca

The impressive fleet of yachts that Delta Marine comprises features the gorgeous Laurel superyacht, a 73 metre monument of cruising launched back in 2006. The blue hull of the yacht mainly reflects its luxury and pride, while its grace expresses a feminine silhouette.

It has been kept in privacy for 5 years, but the owners have now lifted the curtains off this beauty, allowing commoners to take a peek under her skirt. The color palette used for this yacht is actually a complement of its elegant exterior, the high gloss blue hull being sprinkled with white and moon dust.

The main aft deck is where main access is made onboard, welcoming guests with its vast outdoor setting comprised of a twin symmetry of chairs, coffee tables and sofas. The exterior design, interior spatial dispensation and design, were all penned down by the fabled Donald Starkey. We truly agree he managed to combine efficiency with elegance, beauty and grace.

Within the main saloon, an octagonal carpet is the base orientation point of the surrounding furnishing, expressing a calm classical style, in which colors and textures seem made for each other. Every color and material used here is refined in its deepest detail, giving away suppleness and finesse. The room is excellent for lounge and gentle conversation, thanks to the cozy chairs and sofas it comprises.

The main dining room instantly envelops guests with its magnificence and warmth. The subtle, neutral golden tones continue the omnipresent color palette, surrounding the focal point of the room – an imposing dining table. Surrounded by huge windows on both sides, it offers the pleasures of enjoying an exquisite meal and watching the superb weather outside.

A central spot on the boat, the grand staircase, catches the eye thanks to its style and efficiency. Every level of the boat can be reached via this staircase, be it lower deck or sun deck. There’s also the option of getting onboard the elevator, but we’d rather enjoy the beautiful stairs. The glass walls play an artistic role, surrounding the staircase.

The main point of the stairs is the access they provide towards the owner’s quarters, which occupies a huge surface of the centre of the vessel. In addition, there are separate lobbies and study areas to spend your free time at, intermediating the master stateroom and the main deck public areas.

Within the owner’s suite, the golden tones contrast with bright blue ones, pink and yellows, all in a childish manner, but keeping the overall elegance. The master stateroom boasts two outer terraces, both on the starboard side and the port one. The bathroom ensures comfort and privacy, with its two separate shower areas and an inside that resembles Art Deco. His and her wardrobes couldn’t miss, proving that the master suite is an opulent hideout.

The main deck, located forward of the master suite, is available for both crew and guests, ensuring a perfect work & leisure atmosphere. We definitely need to state that the yacht boasts a 25-man crew, their cabins being found on tank deck and lower deck. Captain Clarke states about this weird disposition: “Everyone wins with the placement of the Crew mess forward of the Master Cabin on main deck.

The position of the Master Cabin just forward of amidships provides comfort in head sea conditions and eliminates noise from bow thruster and anchor windless operations. The crew also wins as they gain a full width crew mess and recreation room on main deck that provides direct access to the bosuns locker and foredeck.”

The yacht is able tom accommodate up to 14 guests – includes owners. The guest cabins are organized in five doubles and one twin all found on the lower deck, sharing similar areas. They all boast their unique paintjobs, ensuring exclusivity. Two of the vast en-suite bathrooms include luxurious bathtubs and four fitted big shower areas. The upper deck is the main lounge area, with a somewhat casual sky lounge near the impressive aft deck. Within this place, guests may enjoy informal but stylish dining and entertainment. The upper aft deck boasts comfort in all of its significances.

An al fresco dining area, huge sturdy sofas and adjacent seating ensure everyone with incredible coziness. There’s also a water slide available here for the playful characters. Going upwards from the upper aft deck, we found the sun deck. It’s the most suitable for relaxation and sun-bathing, boasting a Jacuzzi, herb garden, loungers and sun-beds.

The total mileage covered by the Laurel since its launch revolves around 115,000 nautical miles, all over the Earth. It simply makes everyone feel like home, being at the moment available for purchase with Fraser Yachts or charter with Burgess.
