Built in 2014 by Lurssen, the 312.34ft/95.2m mega yacht ‘KISMET’ features an interior designed by Reymond Langton Design and an exterior styled by Espen Oeino.
Bringing together a team composed of award winners, KISMET is unquestionably the realisation of both luxury and uncompromised perfection. Timeless whilst still lightyears ahead of her time, KISMET couples astounding technical quality with innovative design work.
Featuring the pioneering styling of the acclaimed Espen Oeino, the exterior of superyacht KISMET has been gracefully shaped in order to meet the owner’s brief for a yacht which would be an unrivalled charter choice and a premier entertainer. Built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, she is sleek, and replete with all of the amenities necessary for satisfying the modern charterer. One such conversation point regarding her exterior is the mosaic tiled pool with an inset Jacuzzi on the upper foredeck. Due to its position, this Jacuzzi affords guests the perfect observation platform from which to overlook the sea and coastlines whilst underway or at-anchor. For those who prefer to remain dry whilst taking in the sights, four Stidd chairs have been strategically placed around the Jacuzzi in order to provide the same scope without obstructing the view of those taking a soak. To get even higher to secure an unparalleled photo opportunity, a winding staircase a short distance away provides access to a dedicated observation deck which can be enjoyed throughout the day. Bearing a walkaround layout, the team at Espen Oeino have recessed all of the storage compartments to allow for an undisrupted flow when navigating the various outdoor spaces of KISMET- a decision which likewise provides the perfect excuse for taking an evening stroll to coincide with the sunset. Another uniquely impressive addition to the exterior is the secondary helipad on the foredeck which nicely doubles up as a basketball court, whilst the helipad on the bridge deck is easily converted into an exceptionally relaxed outdoor lounging area. A fire pit with an integrated waterfall has been installed on the aft deck to provide just the right amount of heat for guests who want to enjoy their meals al freso at the dining table just a short distance away. Of course, it goes without saying that the four foot black jaguar resting on the bowsprit of superyacht KISMET is very much the finishing touch to such a superbly arranged exterior.
Asked to create a compelling and distinct interior based on a ‘Champagne & Caviar’ theme, Reymond Langton Design have arranged both the social and private spaces to remain suitable whether guests are throwing a glamorous party or simply relaxing over a few drinks. Similar to the innovation found outdoors, the interior of superyacht KISMET features a double-height main salon which spans the main and upper deck aft. Reached via a sweeping staircase, this area is infused with a colour scheme and architecture reminiscent of the Art Deco movement. Indeed, the juxtaposition of blacks and golds creates a strikingly luxurious ambience which is perfect for indulging both after-hours champagne and morning coffee. Nicely flexible, guests can have jazz tunes coming from the grand piano if they’re entertaining, or light one of the two fireplaces if it’s a more cozy vibe they’re after. The skylounge, meanwhile, exudes a more casual atmosphere thanks to its beach house style decor. Yet, with a large sports bar that opens out across the vast deck aft, the space easily transforms into a disco nightclub.
