Vripack has revealed details about its latest collaboration the MCP 120 with Brazilian shipyard MCP Yachts. Developed in response to client request, this 36 metre design features an unconventional layout, with two guest cabins and the owner’s cabin situated on the main deck. Two further VIP cabins on the lower deck take the total to 10 guests.
The upper deck has a forward lounge with an asymmetrical balcony for family privacy, while the aft interior is also a communal space and leads out onto the expansive outdoor deck area.
“Creating maximum space value on a 120’er required a creative approach to space planning” said Bart Bouwhuis, Creative Director at Vripack. “A very energetic co-creation process between the Owner, MCP and our team lead to a perfectly sensible yet highly unconventional layout. ” Throughout the design phase, Vripack was keen to ensure that the crewmembers on board the MCP 120 could carry out their duties in a discreet manner.
“We are known for our high-quality aluminum semi-planning yachts” MCP President and CEO Manoel Chaves commented. “Vripack designed a new hull which allows for very high level of comfort even in rougher weather while maintaining her semi planning characteristics. This will give the family a long reach of sailing destination within a shorter time while they all enjoy wonderful valuable family moments on board.
The MCP 120 will achieve a range of 3,500 nautical miles using 2 x CAT C32 Acerts 1.925 mHP engines, allowing for a long range speed of almost 11 knots and a top speed of 21 knots. Sleeping 11 guests over 5 cabins, there will also be 4 crew cabins to accommodate a crew of 8.
Other superyachts currently under development at the Dutch design studio include the 47 metre Jongert motor yacht Project Revolution, which is due for completion next year.
