The yacht features exterior styling from Diana Yacht Design and interior design from Felix Buytendijk.
The 38-metre Soprano is the latest superyacht to launch from Dutch yard Hakvoort, and contains the DNA of previous modern classics to emerge from the shed in Monnickendam before her, including Spada, Pamela V and Heliad II.
Exterior design and naval architecture is from the boards of Diana Yacht Design, while interior styling is by Felix Buytendijk, marking the eigth time this team has worked together. Soprano was sold in October 2014 by Ocean Independence, who also provided project management services. Her hull is painted in a warm colour called ‘Moondust’, and her aluminium over steel construction ensures her capabilities for safe long-distance cruising.
There is a full beam master suite forward on the main deck, with private study, walk-in-closet and en-suite. Aft on the main deck is the formal salon with large sofas and armchairs. On the lower deck is accommodation for six guests in one full beam VIP cabin aft and two guest cabins.
Aft of the bridge deck is another comfortable salon, while on the large aft deck is a table for al fresco dining and entertaining. While underway the main guest tender is located on this deck. On the sundeck are several sunbeds and a jacuzzi, and another table for dining and entertaining.
Her elegant canoe stern means no swim platform aft, so instead there is a fold-out platform amidships which gives access to the water for swimming and boarding of the tender. As well as the main guest tender on the bridge deck, there is an emergency tender and a Laser sailing dinghy stored on the foredeck.
Soprano has a top speed of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots, with a range of 5,000 nautical miles.
