Magnificent Roxane Sailing Yacht
The Roxane is a magnificent cruiser that was built in Tulza, Turkey by the Su Marine shipyard. This 153-foot long vessel was designed by Taka Yachts, and its hull was constructed using four different layers set on top of each other. First off, mahogany veneer was glued with epoxy resin and placed upon steel and iroko-made frames, all covered by a sheet of pre-preg E-glass cloth. This building process ensured that the Roxane would be lightweight and sturdy at the same time, while benefiting from ample amounts of onboard space.
Following the owners’ specifications, the builders made sure that the yacht provided various relaxation and sunbathing opportunities for the guests, as well as two cockpits. One cockpit can be found underneath the main boom, while the other one is placed between the wheel and the deckhouse. There is also an additional sunbathing area towards the aft, featuring sunloungers that mask the winches and the mooring gear. Overall, the aft deck ensures ample space for socialization and entertainment for up to 50 people.
The interiors were penned down by French designer Rémi Tessier, and he decided to create a warm and sophisticated atmosphere using modest shades of neutrals, blacks, greys, whites and off-whites. One area of particular interest is the welcoming main saloon boasting curved beam ceilings along with large windows that invite an abundance of natural light.
The cabins are lavishly appointed and feature en suite bathroom with black marble-made basins. The vessel is large enough to accommodate up to 9 guests in fantastic conditions, thanks to a twin cabin, a Pullman and three doubles along with a VIP cabin benefiting from a separate entrance.
Roxane is powered by two 610 HP Scania engines that ensure a top speed of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 11. The sails can also be used to improve speed. Water-related conveniences include scuba diving equipment, water skis, a 5-meter Jetdrive, a 4-meter classic sailing dinghy as well as a 2.4-meter inflatable tender. The crew accommodations are placed aft of the engines’ room, ensuring enough housing facilities for 7 people.
