Currently cruising the Baltic regions is the recently delivered 80-foot motor yacht Livingstone, constructed by Royal Denship. The yacht was already in build when the Danish yachting brand announced its merger with Dutch shipyard Hartman Marine Group last year. Livingstone is the first completed result of this collaboration.
Reminiscent of an old-school luxury ocean liner, Livingstone is designed with a relaxed family lifestyle in mind by Dutch design studio Kroes & Poortinga. The sundeck is uncluttered and forms the ideal space for entertaining larger groups of family members. Livingstone?s custom-built Italian tender is also stowed on this level.
Inside, Livingstone?s guest areas have been kept simple and functional, adhering to the family use which it was commissioned for. A large dining area and galley are located on the main deck which leads through to the raised wheelhouse forward.
Below deck, guests are accommodated in an owner?s suite and three guest cabins.
A unique Dutch innovation common to local transport barges has been implemented on the yacht in the form of an internal mooring-pole system. Two poles submerge themselves up to eight metres below the waterline into the sand below for a fast and effective alternative to having to deploy the anchor.
