Designed to ABS and LY3 standards, if built, Aouda would have a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. The name is said to have come from the character Princess Aouda from Jules Verne’s 1873 novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
Aouda features a modern, refined interior, with the master suite finished in Sahara Noir marble, hold leaf, striped Delabrè brass and white walnut woodwork. The design also includes full custom leather upholstery, along with a 3D marble feature wall, inspired by coral reefs. Other standout features on board Aouda include the owner’s suite on the main deck, with direct access to the foredeck and five-metre spa pool.
Accommodation is available on board for 12 guests and features an owner’s cabin, three double bedrooms and two twins. Crew quarters allow for a staff of up to 14.
A helipad is available on the upper deck, able to double up as an entertaining space; there is also a second spa pool on the main deck and beach club with cocktail bar.
Aouda would be powered by two 1,500hp CAT 3512C diesel engines, allowing for a top speed of 16.5 knots.
