The staggering Only Now superyacht

By Brian Pho

Measuring 33.9 meters in length, the marvelous superyacht Only Now was launched back in August 2012 by Tansu Yachts. Alongside its sister vessels, the Nomade, now known as Bartender, and the Ceylan, this gorgeous new vessel unmistakably reformulates the term of high efficiency.

The impressive exterior appearance of the Only One, with its wooden hull and edgy superstructure, redefines yacht industry. Diana Yacht Design, the brand responsible for the looks and engineering of the Only One, has managed to put together a ship inclined towards minimalism and yet pulling out a very bold, strong character. It even expresses aggressiveness at the first glance, even though inside it is way above user friendliness.

Boasting with an airy atmosphere, lavish deck spaces and a tilt towards outdoor life, this superbly unique cruiser is able to provide not decent, but extreme high performance, while cruising at 22 knots. The first impression of airiness is given by the massive aft deck, an open spot perfect for all sorts of gatherings. Boasting a large aft lounge spot and a big oval al fresco dining arrangement fore, alongside fixed lounging pads and wide banded wicker furniture surrounding a sturdy wooden table, this area is extremely cool for both dining and lounging.

The fore deck on the other hand is more of a secluded place, with large sunpads that welcome everyone to sit back and relax. The elegant bimini shades are pretty perfect for hiding from the burning light of the sun. Inside, the main saloon is large and luxuriously charming, highlighted by an open, airy ambiance. This is accomplished due to a natural design scheme moulded around a central lounging space. Warm oak floors and wall paneling set the tone fore, while a vibrantly expressive Jackson Pollock and soft pastel upholstery make up a gorgeous contrast against the high gloss white and grey vertical paneling found throughout.

The stunning Only Now is able to accommodate up to 6 guests within 3 large lower deck cabins. The full beam master suite, located right in the middle, boasts with a walk-in wardrobe, hers and his en-suite bathrooms, with big central shower area, and a massive stateroom with office area and ample storage space. The design scheme is based on high gloss grey wall paneling, teak flooring and smooth oak.

Heading further, the large VIP suite and a twin suite starboard side are all found around a large port side gym easily accessible through the central lower deck corridor. Carrying the luxury of the master suite on, the twin suites and the VIP are also based on cool high gloss paneling, modern touches and warm oak flooring. They are fitted with en-suites with large separate shower areas and large storage space. High above the lot, a lavish sun deck reigns, in terms of outdoor living. This spot provides ample sunbathing space and breathtaking panoramas all around. And the last touch is the flybridge, with its central lounge space and bar, two lounging sofas and elegant bimini shades. Bah, let’s also mention the huge tender storage on the aft deck.
