The Narvalo sailing yacht is a true world-class explorer sailing yacht with all the luxury of any super-yacht and much more.
Narvalo incorporates an integrated aircraft hangar that has enough space to house and protect up to three small helicopters, an iNOVA submarine, and the Evolution Expedition Vehicle (nimblvehicles.com, a Kozloff design). Like her namesake, her unique features are striking, elegant and strong, with the ability to go on voyages of great distances.
The huge landing area permits safe aircraft operations during rough conditions. The two large cranes easily load and off-load special research equipment easily. Below the aircraft hangar is the full-beam beach club with extending decks at water level.
Kozloff invented the de-icing boots on the masts and yards (much like aircraft de-icing systems). The handrails and doors are heated to minimize icing problems.
Admidships a huge indoor swimming pool, deck, and a one-of-a-kind Kozloff design atrium dome. The retractable atrium dome allows for the aroma of the fresh sea air and the soothing sounds of the sea. When the atrium dome is closed, swimming becomes a pleasant activity regardless off the weather.
The full-beam 2000 ft² owners suite located below the forward mast has panoramic views. Narvalo has 2 master suites, and can safely host 14 guests and a crew of 20 in full luxury. To assure the safety of all aboard she is equipped with two free fall lifeboats that can be deployed in the worst of conditions.
Narvalo features a spacious fly bridge with full command and control with a large shaded lounging area for up to six people. Aft of the fly bridge is the spa.
Her full-beam garage can handle multiple tenders and other water toys.
She can cruise at 12kts for 6000 nautical miles with diesel power only. Her range is greatly extended with careful management of her hybrid diesel-electric systems and sail power. Under sail power only she can make 22kts. Her ice-class hull can easily break through moderate ice conditions.
The interior space has multi-levels, curved walls, and a multitude of large windows providing a near panoramic view. This will be an exciting space for the future owner and interior designers to create a masterpiece of comfort and luxury.
