ER Yacht Design to redesign the 60-metre expedition yacht Capella C


Capella CER Yacht Design studio is currently redesigning the 59-metre explorer yacht Capella C, a classic converted private yacht, for a London based client.
The superyacht was built as a steel classic vessel by Dutch shipyard Scheepsbouwwerf Gebr. Pot in Bolnes (the Netherlands), featuring a naval architecture by the Dutch Navy. After her launch in Bolnes in 1968, she has been used as a pilot vessel in the Dutch Navy.
In the past decades, Capella had already been refitted several times, which substantially changed her: in 1985 she was successfully converted to a luxury superyacht with accommodation for up to 22 guests over 12 cabins, as well as a crew of up to 17.
The aim of this latest refit is to convert the superyacht again into a functional expedition vessel for long-distance cruising. The design from ER Yacht Design aims to look timeless, keeping the original classical hull lines while modernizing and integrating a new superstructure.The yacht retains her original structural backbone, while a new helideck will be added, as well as an extension of the existing accommodation, which offers a full beam owner’s stateroom, VIP suite, six guest cabins and two salons, and the maximization of the entertainment areas onboard.
