DIVA, a modern and 96.50m long six-decker motor yacht with a volume of almost 3000 gross tons. Her dynamic and sporty lines, created by judel/vrolijk, take reference in race sailing yachts: the vertical bow, the reverse sheer line and the sail-like mast.

DIVA features large floor to ceiling glass openings throughout the owner’s and guest areas. Two terraces in the spa area aft, private balconies for the guest cabins and the forward lounge, which can be converted into a cinema, are further opening up the interior to the outside. The helipad on the large foredeck is capable for a six-seater helicopter to guarantee smooth transportation.

Arriving by tender, an 8.5m x 4.0m x 1.2m large infinity pool in the aft part of main deck will attract attention and invite you to explore. A generous wellness and entertainment oasis of around 300 square metres at aft main and lower deck combined with two 18-square-metre shell door terraces provide an open sea beach club feeling.

The upper decks of DIVA are designed for conversation and entertainment. judel/vrolijk envisaged circular lounges in the stern of the owner, bridge and sun deck, which pull up like a signature element of DIVA, each with different functions. On the owner’s deck, the lounge is featured by a bar counter serving up to six guests and two sun pads facing aftwards and provide a bright view to the sea. The lounge at bridge deck unfolds it charm in the evening by a centralized fireplace surrounded by comfortable seats for up to twelve guests to enjoy a ‘campfire’ feeling at sea.

Finally, the sun deck features two round lounges: one for al-fresco dining, the other as a private retreat enthroned at more than four metres above the forward bar of the sundeck and 16 metres above sea level. For the interior of DIVA judel/vrolijk created an Asian-Scandinavian look – tidy, clean but still with a feel-good factor. As it is common on yachts of this size, the up to ten guests sleep in five cabins on the main deck – but on DIVA almost all of them have their own foldable balcony. The owner enjoys a valuable area at forward owner´s deck providing privacy for his family with two bedrooms, his/hers bathrooms and a veritable office.
