The first details about the Argo 54, the start of Andrew Bedwell's voyage and the art deco superyacht are the latest yachting news from Interparus.
First details about Argo 54
Argo 54 is a 54m aluminum yacht due to be launched in 2024. The design of the yacht was carried out by designers Rob Doyle, who usually creates superyacht concepts, and Juan K, who is famous for his racing boats and boats.
A key feature of the yacht will be its lightweight aluminum hull. Thanks to this material, it was possible to significantly reduce the weight of the boat compared to yachts of a similar size.
The Argo 54 has a lifting keel. The entire lifting system was inspired by similar systems on smaller yachts. The shipyard and the designers have thus managed to modify the lifting keel system, the repair of which, in the event of an unforeseen breakdown, will not be too difficult. There is also a hybrid power plant on board.
The interiors were designed by Mark Whiteley. From the cabin, a beautiful view of the surrounding space should open thanks to huge windows with a minimum number of spacers. Now the aluminum case is ready, but there is still a lot of work ahead. The hull recently went to the Greek shipyard Omikron Yachts for final work.

The Beginning of Andrew Bedwell's Odyssey!
Several times we have already talked about the brave and even a little crazy Andrew - one article is entirely dedicated to him and further one tells in general about microyachts, among which is Bedwell's yacht.
Recently, new interesting details of the trip have become known. For those who don't know, Andrew Bedwell is about to cross the Atlantic Ocean aboard a small sailboat that is only a little over 100 centimeters long!
So, a boat called Big C was sent to St. John's, in Newfoundland. This place was marked as the starting point of the journey. The transatlantic crossing should begin on May 23rd.
Andrew doesn't just want to set a new world record. Prior to this, the length of the smallest boat, on board which managed to conquer the ocean, was only 162 centimeters. One of Bedwell's main goals is to draw public attention to the problem of cancer treatment.
After the trip is completed, Andrew will release a film about his Atlantic voyage, and all the money earned from the film and charitable donations will be used to fund cancer research.
We look forward to hearing from Andrew and we believe in the success of the venture!
Art Deco Superyacht
The 88m Steamer 888 is inspired by the art deco style of the 1930s. If you are wondering what the legendary Chrysler Building would look like from the world of yachts, now you can see it firsthand on concepts.
The concept came from the pen of the design studio Coquine Design. And although the yacht looks quite modern from the outside, everything inside is imbued with the spirit of art deco. Curved shapes with long horizontal lines and nautical motifs all describe the style of the Steamer 888.
The studio's creative director, Christian Lake, says the exterior and interior of the boat is "a mixture of a New York Central Hudson steam locomotive, a Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation jet, and a polished Dualit toaster." According to him, the studio was really inspired by buildings such as the Chrysler Building and other famous and iconic places in Manhattan in the 1920s.
The layout can be completely changed at the request of the owner. By default, there will be a large salon, a spacious master cabin and four double cabins on board. One of the hallmarks of the salon is backlit resin panel ceilings. Thanks to this decision, it was possible to create the impression of a draped fabric.
There will also be a swimming pool, a beach club and a garage for a tender and other water toys on board. Additional details have not yet been announced.
