The Restyle lines enhances the classic lines of Williamsburg, completing the forward gunwale to protect the sundeck area in front of the master cabin. Large windows for the wheelhouse and owners cabin, to allow maximum visibility inside-out. Construction of new side panels in contrasting colors along the walkways of the first and second decks to allow a more streamlined side profile. The central chimney is maintained as a characteristic element, inside of it are channeled ventilation and extraction keeping the sides without flanks and grids. Evident in the side of hull, the large portholes on the lower deck positioned to provide more natural light and water level view to guests accommodations. Original also the geometry of top bow shapes to be used for mooring and at same time as support of flag’s pole, these horizontal cuts enable to achieve a better forward view from the master stateroom.
The slender hull with streamlined water lines is ideal for hybrid propulsion, able to ensure excellent performance even in rough seas, as widely tested in the years when it was used with the function of an armed escort in the Northern Seas. On the upper deck the owner cabin with a front view and independent access to the sundeck, in the aft area the study with direct access to outside sundeck also used as a landing zone for the helicopter. All exterior decks are free and used as sundeck for guests, two fast displacement tenders in carbon-look are positioned on the outer sides, while the tender rib is housed in the bow deck.
Our team fell in love with this ship, its history, its shapes and want to make a contribution to help Williamsburg regain the deep and sail again as a luxury yacht. For this reason, Green Yachts offers the design project to anyone who cares about this historic yacht and wants to save her from sinking. Green Yachts is an Italian company with a focus on environmental issues, hence the name green, with over ten years of experience in naval design and shipbuilding.
