Today’s cruiser-related rubric on Luxatic brings forth the simply amazing Roxane, as 46.8-meter long proof of luxury and exquisiteness which merges ultra sophisticated contemporariness with the sought-after pleasure of traditional sailing.
The Roxane was built in Tulza, in Turkey, by the famous shipyard Su Marine, based on the architecture imagined by Taka Yachts. The hull, which boasts a state of the composite structure, was crafted from four different layers – mahogany veneer, glued with epoxy resin, laid on iroko and steal frames, plus a gorgeous finish with a sheet of pre-preg E-glass cloth. Thanks to such build quality, the Roxane is extremely lightweight and comes with huge amounts of onboard space.
The owner had specifically stated in the brief that Roxane should sport large deck spaces big enough for sunbathing and relaxation and ultimately two cockpits, one in the traditional spot, between the deck house and the wheel, while the second underneath the main boom.
They were all inserted accordingly, of course! Furthermore, towards the aft, we’ll find an additional sunbathing area fitted with sunloungers disposed in semi-circle. These aren’t there only for their own functionality, but also to hide the mooring gear and winches when they aren’t used. And yes, the owners can use the aft deck for all sorts of entertainment purposes, for up to 50 guests.
Now, the interior – it was superbly designed by acclaimed French designer Rémi Tessier with modest shades of neutrals, off-whites, black, white and grey. Thanks to these, Mr. Tessier managed to induce a warm atmosphere yet sophisticated enough to make you feel special. This gorgeously welcoming ambiance inside the main saloon is further enhanced by curved beamed ceilings, alongside ample amounts of natural light protruding through the massive windows.
As for the cabins, they are fitted with exquisitely appointed en suite bathrooms featuring basins crafted from exotic black marble. Roxane is able to accommodate up to 9 guests within three double cabins, a Pullman and a twin cabin. In addition to the aforementioned there is a 5-meter walk-in closet, while the VIP cabin boasts a separate entrance for more intimacy.
There’s also an additional feature we have to mention – the propulsion system. Roxane gets propulsion from two 610 HP Scania engines that enable a cruising speed of 11 knots and a top speed of 13 knots. The sails can also aid as well. And there are a few water-related amenities that make the life onboard a much better thing – waterskis, scuba diving equipment for Rendez-Vous dives, a 2.4-meter inflatable tender with outboard engine, 4-meter classic sailing dinghy and a 5-meter Jetdrive. Taking care of the people aboard are 7 crew members, with their quarters found aft of the engines’ room.
The gorgeous Roxane is available for charter with Burgess throughout the Mediterranean for €84,000 a week during the high season and €70,000 in low season.
