The recently launched 95metre motoryacht O’Pari was designed and built specifically for the charter market by the Greek shipyard ‘Golden Yachts’. This yachts builds on the heritage of the shipyard following completion of the 85-metre charter star O’Ptasia back in 2018 and 13 other vessels under the ‘Golden Yachts’ brand.
The shipyard chairman and founder, Paris Dragnis, stated. “You cannot aim for new horizons until you have the courage to leave known shores,” he says. “Our aim is to build yachts like this. I imagine them in Greek waters, the birthplace of naval mastery, with every detail taken care of to the utmost perfection. These yachts not only offer their guests an excellent stay, but the serenity of Greek nature too.”
Design partner Studio Vafiadis was drafted to continue the line of Golden Yachts with its familiar style of elegant proportions and flowing guest spaces. “I would define the exterior design as being like the Hellenistic philosophy of the ‘Apollonian’ and ‘Dionysian’ spirits,” explains Stefano Vafiadis.
He continues: “This combines rational thinking and order together with emotions and instincts. The straight lines of the decks are geometrical and give a cadence to the overall look, almost like a musical base. The remaining edgy and sportive curves are the most joyful part of the project, adding that little extra something to the character of O’Pari.”
The beach club leads out onto an expansive five-metre swimming platform which allows for an elaborate beach setup with enough remaining space for diving and watersports preparations. A louvre-style swim ladder leads guests into the water and makes for elegant water exits.
For the interior, the Mediterranean once again served as inspiration for Vafiadis’ design. Defined by a contrasting theme with universal appeal, those on board are treated to deckhead heights of 2.9 metres and a gross tonnage of just over 2,700, all of which has been utilised to enhance the guest experience. The design of guest spaces establishes a balance between shapes, light and colours with curved wood panels and recessed mood lighting setting the scene.
The materials used include mother of pearl, onyx and various precious woods that define each cabin in a different style.
