Luxury superyacht uses iPad as onboard concierge
At $600,000 per week the 60 metre Lürssen superyacht Solemates designed by the great Espen Oeino is one of the world’s most exclusive charter craft.
It’s also one of the most cutting edge thanks to a new system that lets guests control various functions via an iPad.
Via the device they can control the shipboard entertainment and climate systems, adjust the blinds and lights in their cabins, and even summon a crewmember to bring more cocktails.
The sleek yacht, launched in Monaco earlier this year, boasts a top speed of 15.5 knots with a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
The interior, designed by Glade Johnson, blends elegant, rich woods and textures with contemporary sleek lines in a soothing palette of earth tones.
The main and upper deck salons are awash with natural light and offer impressive spaces for formal dining or casual dining and entertaining.
The sun deck features a dining area and a sun lounge wrapped around the Jacuzzi forward.
A disco sound and lighting system turns it into an al fresco nightclub at nightfall.
From the engine room, a watertight door gives access to the tender garage which has large shell doors on either side.
One tender on each side as well as a large selection of sports equipment e.g. jet skis and sea bobs are stowed here.
From the bathing platform you have direct access to the professionally equipped dive room.
The yacht accommodates 12 guests in spacious cabins are located on the lower deck with a fifth placed on the upper deck between the bridge and the upper salon.
