A GROUNDBREAKING NEW LAUNCH BY USA-BASED LAZZARA OMBRES ARCHITECTS
IN BUILD AT GHI SHIPYARD IN SOUTH KOREA.
Project Phoenix is the world’s most exciting new luxury sport superyacht. Sleek, fast, and luxurious with flowing, seamless entertaining space and panoramic views. This 130-foot vessel with five staterooms is tank tested for a max speed of 28 knots to soar to the sun. Project Phoenix is a revolutionary spec build representing the collaboration of a leading American design and engineering team and a South Korean shipyard. Together they will construct the first superyacht in the world’s leading shipbuilding nation - South Korea.
STYLE AND SEXY
Joe Lazzara’s exterior styling is sleek and sexy with a full walk around top deck. This makes crew maintenance accessible and wing stations for easy docking. The main deck arrangement creates a true upper deck pilothouse, with a ceiling height of 8 1/2 feet, unusual for a boat this size.
This includes dark Indian rosewood with sparkling details in proportion to western taste for a true semi-custom yacht interior. The modern chic decor uses casual materials like chenille, cotton, light oak, and reconstituted oak with a touch of industrial interior design and Art Déco proportions. Phoenix 130 and her 50-meter and 70-meter sisterships will achieve their own unique style by changing soft and hard goods to satisfy client tastes. Mixing mahogany and white lacquers make for a new navy interior theme. Black tinted oak with stainless steel and carbon fiber creates a futuristic aura. Full teak and white details make for a casual ambiance.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE
Phoenix is engineered to precision for an optimal strength to weight ratio. Her standard propulsion system is twin MTU 12V 4000 M93L 3460 HP, generally an upgrade for any boat this size. Stevens Institute provided tank testing under a range of speeds to 50 knots
and in multiple sea states validating the hull’s exceptional seakeeping characteristics and efficiency.
At 318GT, Phoenix 130 is aluminum construction and tops out around 28 knots. Phoenix 130 is expected to be one of the first ABS A1 commercial classed yachts certified by ABS Houston in the last five years in this size range meeting and exceeding ABS’ stringent engineering standards. Boksa Marine Design (BMD) did ABS compliance on Phoenix’s systems engineering. The systems were designed by KOMAC (Korea Maritime Consultants) and BMD brought the systems into compliance with ABS rules in addition to the machinery arrangement.
