my skat yacht

The 70-metre yacht SKAT was built to be a comfortable second home, with iconic exterior design by Espen Øino and interior design by Marco Zanini. Comfort and performance were essential with noise and vibration levels extremely low at cruising speeds. The construction brief called for as much light as possible, which resulted in a glass conservatory on the bridge deck, which allows natural light to shine in from above and below while affording magnificent views of the yacht's surroundings. With a very clean layout and separation, the lower decks are entirely dedicated to technical spaces, crew and services. They received the same level of attention to design and detail as the owner and guest accommodation on the upper decks. Delivered in 2002, the size and quality of these crew spaces is still outstanding even today.

Skat has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure with a beam of 13.50m (44.29ft) and a 3.75m (12.30ft) draft.

SKAT Yacht – Masterful $60M Superyacht

The Hungary native worked at Microsoft for over two decades, leaving in 2002 to start his own company.

The yacht was designed as a home away from home for Simonyi, with minimalist features penned by design house Espen Øino International.

The design house also contributed to the interior design and Marco Zanini. Lurssen built the ship in their Bremen shipyard, delivering her in 2002.

SKAT yacht interior

Marco Zanini and Espen Øino International penned the interior of the luxurious SKAT yacht.

Minimalism defines the interior, and although she forgoes the lavish luxury of the average superyacht, she has many beautiful features that make her a comfortable home away from home for the owner.

The impressive interior of SKAT features an elevator that serves all four decks, a leisure platform with a Jacuzzi, and a gymnasium that is located centrally on the yacht. A helipad serves a McDonnell Douglas 500N Helicopter on the upper aft deck.

The 70m yacht can accommodate 12 guests across one master suite, four doubles, and two twins.

There is accommodation for 18 crew members on board. She was built as a home and not as a charter yacht for the software engineer owner.

The interior design is focused on a clean and uncluttered look. The ship has a near-frameless bridge deck that is enclosed and offers panoramic views of the water.

The ‘capsule’ is protected as the boat spends a lot of time in Scandinavia and has to let in as much light as possible.

The beach club opens to allow guests to enjoy a swim platform and houses several water toys in the full-beam garage. The crew areas were designed with crew satisfaction in mind.

The owner uses SKAT as a home away from home, so crew satisfaction was influential in the design process.

Lurssen shipbuilders built the SKAT yacht at their Bremen shipyard in Germany. Espen Øino International executed the exterior design for the vessel.

The SKAT yacht was delivered in 2002, and she was last refitted in 2021.

Her exterior is undoubtedly striking with its grey color, imposing lines, and multiple windows. The owner is a software engineer, and the yacht was designed to reflect his vocation.

Specifications

The 70.7m yacht has a beam of 14.02m and a draft of 3.76m. The SKAT’s volume measures 1998 gross tons and is powered by 2 MTU engines.

SKAT has a cruising speed of 14.3 knots and a top speed of 18.1 knots. She has a range of 4600 nautical miles. SKAT has an annual running cost of $3 – $6 million.

lurssen motor yacht skat sold

71m Lürssen motor yacht Skat sold

The iconic 70.71 metre Lürssen motor Skat has been sold with both buyer and seller represented by Stuart Larsen at Fraser .

Built in steel and aluminium by German yard Lurssen to a design by Espen Oeino , she was delivered in 2002 and immediately attracted worldwide attention with her military-style profile, finished in grey. An interior by Marco Zanini accommodates up to 12 guests in seven en suite cabins comprising a master suite, four doubles and two twins. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, Panasonic television screens and are connected by an elevator to all decks while the crew quarters sleep 20 staff.

The dining room has split teak-topped tables for an intimate setting which can also be converted to a single long table with 12 chairs. The main saloon or cinema is aft with a flexible seating arrangement and a large screen television set on an overhead lift. The aft main deck is expansive and open with fixed and loose seating, coffee tables and buffet servers either side. One buffet has a push button bar that opens with bottle storage and the port side also opens with a sink and fridge.

The tender garage stores two 8.5 metre tenders and there are bowsers for gas and diesel refuelling and capacity for two or three wave runners and other water toys. There is also a rack for six bikes. A hydraulic elevator platform moves motorcycles, bikes, supplies and handrails etc. from the garage up to the main deck.

On the bridge deck, there is a wide walkway to the foredeck with port and starboard crew seating. The elevator accesses the corridor heading aft to the guest office which is to starboard with six workstations. The owner’s library is opposite and also has two days beds for relaxation. Further aft is the bridge deck saloon with a stand-up bar separating the lounging area to starboard and casual seating area opposite to port. Natural light also comes from an overhead sky light.

It is on this deck that one starts to appreciate the incredible natural light afforded by the massive windows which extend full width out over the main deck below and are certainly the ‘signature’ of  Skat . They extend even further aft to the external dining area which is light, bright and airy and a really generous space with a dining table lying fore and aft for 12 guests, a lounging settee to port and a U-shaped dining and seating area opposite. Her top speed is 17 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles at 15.0kn with power coming from two 2,680hp MTU 16V4000M79 diesel engines.

Skat was asking €49,500,000.
