my dream boat

Yacht design renderings don't get much sexier than these. The Sentori 58R was dreamed up by Christian Gumpold and Christopher Gloning while they were working on their diploma thesis at the university of applied science in Graz, Austria. The 58-foot flybridge yacht has three decks and the vessel is powered by 2x 715 HP Volvo Penta diesel engines and can reach a topspeed of about 30 knots. The main deck includes the open air stern, pantry, dinette, and main helm station. The owner's state room, vip cabin, and guest cabin, each ensuite are located in the lower deck. The third deck holds a second helm station, lounge area, sunbathing area and the wet bar. This second helm station can be protected with a sliding transparent panel.

The Sentori 58R was designed to be lower and wider than other flybridge yachts. Its beautiful juxtaposition of light and dark with a black and gray hull set against a loft-like airy and white and light wood interior give the yacht a very modern feel. The first prototype is currently under construction in Turkey and should be out in the Spring.
