The 87-metre superyacht Ace was built back in 2012 by the German shipyard Lürssen and refitted in 2018. Here, thanks to a recent photoshoot in Barcelona, we get an insight of what the vast and voluminous 2,732 GT yacht looks like inside.
Built for an experienced owner, the superyacht is now for sale. She has only ever had one owner since new, and has only been privately used.
The yacht’s unique lines and beautiful interiors are a product of Winch Design, who was the studio behind both her exterior and interior looks. Winch's state-of-the-art design includes oval balconies and large side-arches, complemented by a timeless, classic interior.
Ace breaks the conventions of yacht interior layouts to optimise the onboard family living experience. She has a seamless inside to outside transition by way of design, and her upper deck dedicates almost 1,000 square metres to social spaces.
Ace features accommodation for 10 guests across her six impressive staterooms. She is also capable of carrying up to 30 crew members onboard to ensure a relaxed journey. Although this is her current accommodation layout, builders say it would be possible for a future owner to convert the massage room into a sixth stateroom, which would then provide accommodations for 12 guests.
As well as a helipad, her main deck offers a cinema, gym and guest suites with easy access between them all. The master suite faces aft and offers unobstructed panoramic views with a small aft terrace providing a wind-sheltered area for the owner.
Unique port and starboard private staircases run directly from the owner's deck all the way to the swim platform. That means the owner has no need to pass through any deck interiors.
The forward area of the dining saloon on the upper deck is a cosy sitting room and library area with a fireplace, piano and games table. This deck also includes a bespoke Russian tea room and nightclub.
On the lower deck there is what can only be described as the ultimate spa area, inspired by Roman villas, it includes a hammam, spa pool, Russian banya (a kind of sauna), icy plunge pool and cold water bucket shower with a lounge, adjacent to a large fold-down sea terrace. This onboard spa is in one of the most luxurious spas that has been built into a yacht.
Located aft on the lower deck, Ace features large tender garage doors for easy water access. She also has another opening in her hull which has the option to be utilised as a tender docking area and a beach-style swimming platform.
Ace is also known for having travelled with the recently-sold support vessel, the 67.15-metre Garçon. The Damen-built support vessel was the Dutch shipyard’s first large support vessel and provided Ace with tender, crew, provisioning and helicopter support.
The pair of yachts and their crew have also been involved in environmental clean-up missions in the past.Powered by twin MTU 16V 4000 M61R diesel engines, Ace can cruise comfortably at 12 knots and reaches a top speed of 17 knots.
