There have been some pretty ridiculous yachts around lately, things so far removed from the joy of the sea that they enter a realm of science fiction, rather than anything attainable.
So it’s nice to see a boat that echoes traditional seafaring designs. This 42-footer – a collaboration between Belgium-based designers Studio Job and boat designer Willem Nieland – features a palette of grey and timber.
Despite presenting quite a simple aesthetic, there are touches throughout the boat which give personality and reveal the playful nature associated with Studio Job. From the upholstery of the seating inside – with iconic symbols of boating such as skulls and crossbones, anchors and Moby Dick – to a beautiful stained glass window. Their craftsmanship is also evident in the beautiful door handles and bronze bell.
The Firmship 42 can be yours for € 329,000 – finally, a boat that costs less than an average house.
