For those amongst us who dare to dream, an audacious reality has just arrived!
Somnio has been hailed as the world’s first “Yacht Liner” and will be delivered by specialist Norwegian shipyard, VARD, in mid 2024. She will be the largest superyacht in the world designed to stand the test of time as one of the most beautiful yachts ever built!
Establishing a new niche in superyacht ownership, Somnio has just 39 exquisitely high-end apartments on board, offering owners the perfect combination of the superyacht lifestyle and 7 star hotel service. Amenities onboard will include a spectacular 10,000-bottle capacity wine cellar and tasting room; a choice of restaurants and bars; and an onboard beach club featuring water-sports facilities. A lounge in the ship’s bow will also provide for spectacular views when sailing in scenic areas or when entering port.
The highest standards of security and medical care will also be available on board, enabling Owners and their guests to sail with the highest level of safety during the midst of pandemics and other global risks.
Environmental sustainability is a key focus for Somnio which is being built with the latest clean engine technology and advanced onboard equipment to help scientists and marine experts conduct research into ocean environments. Internationally-recognised experts will join Somnio’s itinerary to update Owners on the latest global challenges and solutions on key environmental and philanthropic issues.
Somnio will be 222 metres long and will have a gross tonnage of 33,500 GRT. The project has enjoyed the support of VARD’s parent company, Italy’s Fincantieri, one of the world’s most renowned builders of specialised vessels.
With a focus on slow-paced travel Somnio will explore the four corners of the globe, from the Mediterranean, a week in New York, sailing the South Pacific to undertaking expeditions in Antarctica. Owners will access unimaginable experiences whilst enjoying the true intimacy of private yacht ownership with added ability to share a unique life with like-minded owners and friends with whom to explore the world.
