The name Tahura is based on a Maori word, which means to discover. The idea was to create a ship with a natural shape, which is similar to the oldest types of boat - the canoe. The yacht truly is reminiscent of a canoe, but it is absolutely clear that we won’t be paddling in it.
The combination of old and new is a contemporary trend
We have recently been able to observe the combination of old and new in practically all fields: in catering, interior design, fashion and in the automobile industry for example. Both manufacturers and consumers find it very attractive to use the newest technologies to make old ideas and values a little more modern. And the Oceanco shipyard also utilised this attractive combination in its deluxe 115 metre long yacht, the Tahura.
A deluxe yacht created for relaxation
You will be captivated by the design of this luxurious yacht at first glance. The beautiful smooth curves evoke a feeling of peace and the first thing you think of is relaxing in the first-class luxury. The interior also does not give a savage impression, but is very peaceful. Roman designer Achille Salvagni assured this by drawing inspiration from Asia and the Polynesian islands. He used teak wood and utilised the sensuality of primitive organic shapes.
A “smart” yacht
The LuxLab Company was involved in the interior and transformed the yacht into an extremely “smart ship”, which is very different to historic boats. You can find lighting, audio and curtain controls, and also controls monitoring behaviour on deck with regard to preferences such as music and temperature, on the ship.
Does it seem that the yacht has no windows? What excellent camouflage! The hull has several horizontal windows utilising technologies enabling observation from inside while the exterior of the yacht appears smooth and windowless.
