Fils de Grace yacht refit project offered for sale: a classic world cruiser in the making

She is part way through a major refit that would transform her into an timeless and elegant ocean-going superyacht, but Fils de Grace is now being put on the market by her owner after the tragic loss of a family member in 2011.

Designer Tim Saunders of Tim Saunders Yacht Design (TSYD) spoke passionately about the project, named Touya by her owner, which he has been involved with from the start: 'She is a well advanced but incomplete project. She will probably attract a new owner who wishes to take short delivery of a distinctive, high volume and very comfortable ocean-going cruiser for private and or charter use.'

Indeed Fils de Grace is a yacht of great character that has had not one but many pasts, starting life in 1968 as a 53.5 metre cable laying and repair ship built by renowned Dutch shipyard EJ Smit & Zoon. After 30 years of operating in Northern European waters in that capacity she changed course completely, becoming a private motor yacht called Sir Arthur J in 2003. By 2007 she had been passed on to her next owner who named her Fils de Grace and started a refit, which was never completed.

Her current owner discovered her in Italy in 2009, seeing past the idiosyncrasies and neglected state of repair to her great potential as a timeless, elegant and comfortable ocean cruiser in the spirit of the 1930s. What she had going for her was an outstandingly strong steel hull, which was duly surveyed, tested and signed off by Bureau Veritas and MCA, and the promise of a more than 10,000 nautical mile range at 10 knots - perfect for the round-the-world cruise the owner dreamed about doing.

The yacht was then moved to the RMK Shipyard in Tuzla, Turkey, where work began to change almost everything else. With a radical transformation conceived on Tim Saunders' drawing boards, she was completely stripped back to her bare steel framework, and her interior gutted - even some structural bulkheads were modified to open up the interior for a new optimised layout. In a space that once housed 7.5 metre cable drums there is vast potential for a high volume superyacht with no compromise on dimensions or comfort.

With the intention of both simplifying and refining, her exterior remodelling entailed changing her sheerline to enhance her horizontal lines and windows, raising her top deck by 30cm to increase the ceiling height of the accommodation beneath and extending the aft accommodation on main and bridge decks to allow for a huge sun deck up top. The attractive canoe stern, however, remains original. 'We chose to leave this honest part of the yacht as the original designer would have wanted it,' explains Saunders.

Working with Saunders have been the owner's representative and naval architect/marine engineer, and Frank Mulder and the team from Mulder Design in the Netherlands.

Fils de Grace has been fitted with two new CATs, and all equipment and systems have been renewed right down to the piping and air-conditioning. She will also have new Wesmar dynamic and at-anchor stabilisers and her propellers have been replaced.

There are plans, however, to put her old props back on board - but melted down and recast as an ultra-thin and stiff bronze dining table.

Inside, her planned layout bears no resemblance to anything that has gone before. The general arrangement will provide accommodation for 12 guests in four good sized cabins on the lower deck, a 9.4m full beam VIP suite on the main deck (convertible into a cinema) and an owner's suite on the bridge deck. Part of the plan too is to have a central staircase within an atrium, and also an elevator - unusual for a yacht of this size. The elevator is intended not only for guests but with an additional galley stop, also for food service, enabling the crew to deliver all the dishes by trolley in one go to any dining table on any deck - thus ensuring the food arrives as the chef intended.

The interior has been envisaged with an elegant 'neo art deco' style, influenced by a fusion of the aesthetics, proportions, details and rich materials from 1930s art deco ‘Villa Empain’ in Brussels - together with key elements from a selection of modern, comfortable and minimalist superyachts.

Incorporated into the décor will be the finest custom-made materials ranging from coloured leathers and suedes to digitally controlled light switches, and there is extensive use of wood, stone and even gold leaf. Among the 12 different kinds of wood specified are Macassar Ebony, European Walnut and Green Ebony, while each cabin is to have a rare burl - Walnut Cluster, Thuya, Inbuya and Golden Madrone. Complementing those are a cornucopia of natural stones - onyx and marble - ranging from the tongue-tripping Capolavoro Chapa to the delicate Rosa Perlino.

Well-proportioned and exquisitely detailed furniture has also been designed, complete with custom-made bronze handles and inlays, exquisite leather panels and rare book-matched wood veneers, while wall treatments include leather, accented with razor-cut suede, silks and galuchat.

All modern technology such as speakers and televisions are hidden behind moving picture frames or wall panels leaving a clean and uncluttered look, generating a comfortable environment and a serene atmosphere.

Crew cabins have been designed to conform to latest regulations and her general arrangement plans were scrutinised by one of the key charter brokers who, when asked what he would change to make the yacht perfect for charter, came up with several suggestions that have been incorporated into the design - among them, optimised circulation. Indeed the overall transformation of Fils de Grace will make her an ‘as new’ international standard superyacht complying to Bureau Veritas and MCA regulations for unrestricted navigation and charter.

As she stands today, says Tim Saunders, '95% of her steel work is done and about 90% of her interior and exterior design. She is 12 months away from completion.' All Fils de Grace needs is someone with the vision, energy and individuality to carry forward her transformation into a superyacht without equal.

Esenyacht , the Bodrum -based manufacturer of specialist custom superyachts, is proud to unveil the first four images of the 50-metre sailing yacht Troy . Superyacht Troy is currently under construction at the yard, scheduled for completion in late 2014.

With exterior styling and interior design by Tim Saunders working in conjunction with Esenyacht’s own design team, luxury yacht Troy will have accommodation for 12 guests and nine crew members. The spaces below decks will feature long flowing lines that reflect her role as a performance sailing yacht designed for competitive regatta racing as well as luxury cruising.

Materials used will include marble from Esenyacht’s own quarry in central Anatolia and fine leathers sourced from suppliers to some of the top Italian luxury brands. This is in keeping with the Esenyacht ethos of uncompromising attention to detail and, as with the marble, the use of its own expertise and resources wherever possible.

Special attention has also been paid to the design and layout of the galley, which will include technology not previously used in the yachting sector. More information on this will be released in the coming months. Work meanwhile is now focused on the initial fitting out of the steel hull, with the composite superstructure due to go on in early 2014.

Troy yacht follows on from Esenyacht’s inaugural sailing yacht project Glorious , a spacious 36m yacht launched in 2011 that is currently chartering in the Mediterranean . Also available for sale, she was the first iteration of the Esenyacht philosophy that sets out to combine northern European quality with a commitment to building yachts that are genuinely handcrafted down to the finest details. This represents a deliberate departure from the standard superyacht model of complex supply chains and assembly-orientated production techniques.

“We prefer the sense of personalisation that comes with our approach to building one-off yachts,” says General Manager Deniz Can. “The consistency that comes with high quality craftsmanship from one’s own workshops never goes out of fashion.”

Share All sharing options for: Gagarin Cup Preview: Atlant vs. Salavat Yulaev

Gagarin cup (khl) finals:  atlant moscow oblast vs. salavat yulaev ufa.

Much like the Elitserien Finals, we have a bit of an offense vs. defense match-up in this league Final.  While Ufa let their star top line of Alexander Radulov, Patrick Thoresen and Igor Grigorenko loose on the KHL's Western Conference, Mytischi played a more conservative style, relying on veterans such as former NHLers Jan Bulis, Oleg Petrov, and Jaroslav Obsut.  Just reaching the Finals is a testament to Atlant's disciplined style of play, as they had to knock off much more high profile teams from Yaroslavl and St. Petersburg to do so.  But while they did finish 8th in the league in points, they haven't seen the likes of Ufa, who finished 2nd. 

This series will be a challenge for the underdog, because unlike some of the other KHL teams, Ufa's top players are generally younger and in their prime.  Only Proshkin amongst regular blueliners is over 30, with the work being shared by Kirill Koltsov (28), Andrei Kuteikin (26), Miroslav Blatak (28), Maxim Kondratiev (28) and Dmitri Kalinin (30).  Oleg Tverdovsky hasn't played a lot in the playoffs to date.  Up front, while led by a fairly young top line (24-27), Ufa does have a lot of veterans in support roles:  Vyacheslav Kozlov , Viktor Kozlov , Vladimir Antipov, Sergei Zinovyev and Petr Schastlivy are all over 30.  In fact, the names of all their forwards are familiar to international and NHL fans:  Robert Nilsson , Alexander Svitov, Oleg Saprykin and Jakub Klepis round out the group, all former NHL players.

For Atlant, their veteran roster, with only one of their top six D under the age of 30 (and no top forwards under 30, either), this might be their one shot at a championship.  The team has never won either a Russian Superleague title or the Gagarin Cup, and for players like former NHLer Oleg Petrov, this is probably the last shot at the KHL's top prize.  The team got three extra days rest by winning their Conference Final in six games, and they probably needed to use it.  Atlant does have younger regulars on their roster, but they generally only play a few shifts per game, if that. 

The low event style of game for Atlant probably suits them well, but I don't know how they can manage to keep up against Ufa's speed, skill, and depth.  There is no advantage to be seen in goal, with Erik Ersberg and Konstantin Barulin posting almost identical numbers, and even in terms of recent playoff experience Ufa has them beat.  Luckily for Atlant, Ufa isn't that far away from the Moscow region, so travel shouldn't play a major role. 

I'm predicting that Ufa, winners of the last Superleague title back in 2008, will become the second team to win the Gagarin Cup, and will prevail in five games.  They have a seriously well built team that would honestly compete in the NHL.  They represent the potential of the league, while Atlant represents closer to the reality, as a team full of players who played themselves out of the NHL. 

  • Atlant @ Ufa, Friday Apr 8 (3:00 PM CET/10:00 PM EST)
  • Atlant @ Ufa, Sunday Apr 10 (1:00 PM CET/8:00 AM EST)
  • Ufa @ Atlant, Tuesday Apr 12 (5:30 PM CET/12:30 PM EST)
  • Ufa @ Atlant, Thursday Apr 14 (5:30 PM CET/12:30 PM EST)

Games 5-7 are as yet unscheduled, but every second day is the KHL standard, so expect Game 5 to be on Saturday, like an early start.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

tim saunders yacht design

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.  

tim saunders yacht design

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

tim saunders yacht design

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

tim saunders yacht design

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

tim saunders yacht design

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right. The Tsaritsa's Chambers were built in the mid-17th century for the wife of Tsar Alexey - Tsaritsa Maria Ilinichna Miloskavskaya. The design of the building is influenced by the ancient Russian architectural style. Is prettier than the Tsar's chambers opposite, being red in colour with elaborately decorated window frames and entrance.

tim saunders yacht design

At present the Tsaritsa's Chambers houses the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum. Among its displays is an accurate recreation of the interior of a noble lady's chambers including furniture, decorations and a decorated tiled oven, and an exhibition on the history of Zvenigorod and the monastery.

Palace of Tsar Alexis

tim saunders yacht design

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era. It was built especially for Tsar Alexis who often visited the monastery on religious pilgrimages. Its most striking feature is its pretty row of nine chimney spouts which resemble towers.
