The owner’s brief was to create a yacht that blended environmental responsibility, innovative features and high comfort levels, and the design team more than delivered. The Artefact build team pushed the boundaries of yacht design, and rightly describe her as a ‘game changer.’

Key features include the combined use of solar panels and a battery storage system that ensure the yacht can operate with no engines for windows of time. A diesel-electric Azipod propulsion system can hold Artefact’s position without needing to drop anchor — protecting sensitive ocean floors.
The clever use of glass has helped create a truly unique profile, with radically mismatched windows. With the highest glass ratio of any yacht of her size, a floor-to-ceiling central glass section has 7,965 sq ft of curved glasswork that weighs an incredible 60 tons!
A wide variety of guest spaces span her many decks, with numerous alfresco dining areas, a Jacuzzi, impressive storage capacity for tenders and toys, and a refined interior with high ceilings. Designed to maximize the long-term on-board comfort of her guests, Artefact’s many assets include a full cinema, beauty salon and gym.
