World Superyacht Winner – 133 Conrad “Viatoris”
VIATORIS was launched in Spring 2018 and was the winner of the World Superyacht Award in 2019 making it a great year for Conrad Shipyard based in Gdansk, Poland. She has a full displacement steel hull, aluminum superstructure, built according to and under the survey of Lloyd’s Register and in compliance with MCA LY3 for vessels of less than 500GT.
This class was made up of five very significant yachts with overall lengths falling between 40m and 47.9m, all of which were most enviable in their appearance and quality of construction. After hearing the views of Judges who had visited individual yachts, attention was turned to the detail of their general arrangement plans, traffic flow, and other technical issues.
A yacht that seemed to attract praise in all these areas was Viatoris, a 40-metre built in Poland by Conrad Shipyard, with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design and exterior design by Reymond Langton. Following the secret ballot, this yacht was subsequently confirmed as the winner. The Judges had predominantly admired her lines, which were considered to be both timeless and elegant, while her interior layout was praised for its ideal distribution of the yacht’s volume between guest, crew, public and technical spaces.
Viatoris is not a yacht for those who yearn for speed as, powered by a pair of economical Caterpillar 500kW diesels, she has a cruising speed of 12-knots, but the benefits she reaps from this are a huge range of 11,100 nautical miles at her economical delivery speed of 8-knots and, aided by excellent sound insulation, also a supremely quiet interior. The Judges also noted that her four ideally positioned fold-down balconies and adjacent sliding doors create a very airy interior, while her abundance of large windows and portlights provide excellent intimacy with the surrounding scenery and seascapes. The owner requested a yacht in which he could ‘feel at home and not like a guest in a hotel’ and the Judges felt that this long range ocean traveller has successfully provided this – and more.
She sports a custom design and custom made interiors of the highest quality to accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins. The interior features a combination of marble and onyx, paired with four different kinds of wood — rosewood, makassar ebony, mahogany, and oak — that blend together in perfect harmony. The main deck embraces a luxurious open-plan salon comprised of a dining area and comfortable relax zone, where glazed doors create an area that opens to the ocean breeze. There are subtle nuances of sophistication throughout the vessel, which sets VIATORIS above the rest.
Her exterior design is by Reymond Langton and her naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design. VIATORIS is the perfect combination of modern-day amenities with old-world charm. It’s the attention to detail that invokes the spirit of VIATORIS, which by definition means to be traveling toward fulfillment or on a journey that is not yet completed.
Reymond Langton Design was commissioned by Conrad Shipyard to create this graceful 40-meter luxury yacht for an experienced yachtsman and repeat client of the yard. The design brief was for an elegant, yet aggressive vessel that has modern and unique lines, which will remain timelessly stylish. Built to the highest Northern European standards, she features finest luxury interiors and a layout with elements of a much larger yacht. Conrad Shipyard is pleased to announce that this harmonious marriage between the prestigious design by Britain’s Reymond Langton and proven naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design of the Netherlands, in partnership with Conrad Shipyard’s world class Polish engineering and craftsmanship, is now offered as a semi-custom model.
With a focus on safety, quality, and efficiency, this full-displacement luxury motor yacht was engineered to meet the most demanding technical and safety standards of Lloyd’s Register and MCA. Built with a robust steel hull and a light aluminum superstructure, we worked with the most trusted specialists, consultants, and surveyors, using only the best equipment available. The result is a luxury yacht that can safely, efficiently, and comfortably cross the Atlantic while being operated by a relatively small crew.
Luxury and highest quality has been the guiding theme throughout this outstanding vessel, and the interior design and finishing are no different. Designed by Conrad Shipyard’s in-house design team in close cooperation with the owner, the interiors boast finest materials and elegant yet understated design details, which are both aesthetic and functional. Decorations were sourced from Europe’s top design houses in London, Milan, and Paris. Conrad Shipyard’s design team happily works directly with the owner, or designer of choice, to create custom interiors to meet our clients’ vision.
