NAMASTE enjoys many unique and innovative attributes that make her stand out from the crowd. The first, noticeable as soon as you approach her, is the attractive “cappuccino” colour of her hull which accentuates her lines and hints at the earth tones and associated ideas evident in her interior.
The talented designers at Tamsen Yachts have created a yacht with a length of 40 meters 131 feet, with deck areas and interior spaces which give the feeling of a much larger vessel. This was partly achieved by providing particularly generous headroom on the main and lower decks which, for example, in the main saloon at 2.47m easily surpasses that of many recent yachts of 50m and above
Namaste’s contemporary Asian interior decoration is a testament to the origins of her name. The natural woods used in her joinery combined with the creams and browns of leathers and fabrics create a backdrop for the prominent oriental features placed at focal points around the yacht. Overall the atmosphere is serene and light thanks to the huge windows, the clever use of large glass panels in ceilings and floors and even an opening skylight in the upper lounge. Spaces are generous not only for the guests, but also, “below stairs” in the working areas of the yacht such as the galley and crew cabins.
It is also clear that a great deal of thought went into using the decks of the yacht to their best advantage. Nowhere is this more evident than on the foredeck of the yacht where there is not only a comfortable lounging and dining area but also the yacht’s jacuzzi. This area offers fabulous unobstructed views and also privacy from the quay when in port. In addition, the more traditional aft deck and bridge deck areas are unusually large and offer a choice of both shaded and sundrenched areas to enjoy.
Since the owner of Namaste took delivery of her in 2008, he has continuously invested in and upgraded the yacht without any consideration of cost. She is now in better than new condition and has proved herself to be a popular and extremely successful charter yacht in addition to giving great pleasure to the owner and his family.
One of only two yachts built to this design, Namaste offers the rare opportunity to own a yacht of this size which is not a “production” yacht with many sisterships. She is special and will always be regarded as such.
