‘Out-of-the-box’ design results in voluminous motor yacht
Steenwijk – A level floor from stem to stern, an all-round view of the water, entirely self-divisible with the 45 M2 single floor surface, extremely ample volume and a dynamic, contemporary design with long, stratified lines. These are the most notable features of the Panama Flatfloor by Steeler, the first two of which have been on the basis of the drawing.
Fast-sailing apartment with a large sun veranda
Hans Webbink of Steeler Yachts had already had the idea at the back of his mind when it was brought to the fore by an English customer. "I've been wondering for years why a boat has to have different levels. And steps you're always bumping into. I was at the London Boat Show when a customer asked me to build a fast-sailing apartment, with a large sun veranda. This set me thinking, and I showed a single floor concept to a number of yacht architects. Pim Dijksman of Vripack was our glorious winner and came up with a fantastic design. That's important because the starting point was functionality, but the overall result did of course have to have an impressive appearance." We certainly succeeded in that.
The Panorama Flatfloor by Steeler has a steep bow that flows seamlessly at the top into the deck that shelters the gangways and continues virtually completely to the stern. The wheelhouse has a dome-like appearance. Not just by its shape, but also the amount of glass. From the wheelhouse you come out onto the huge afterdeck with a surface area of 22 m²: more than enough space for a lounge sofa and two sun beds.
