Vripack Explorer Yacht Like no Other
The SUV of the Seas
Inspired by the durability of marble and Land Rover, yet softened by the warmth of a tactile interior, 24m Rock designed by Dutch studio Vripack, is built for comfortable adventure. Launched – and sold to her current owner – at the 2018 Cannes Boat Show where she made her international debut, Rock is defined by her voluminous open plan layout and uninterrupted sight lines; the yachting world’s first pocket rocket. Characterised by an enticing interior design, where textured fabrics and soft furnishings contrast with maple wood finishes and angular 3D shapes, this explorer yacht truly serves as an inviting home from home. The owner intends on spending many weeks living on board, cruising the intimate ports of the Mediterranean. In addition to an interior that is akin to a contemporary loft apartment, Rock possesses a high straight bow to intercept rough seas and a low aft for easy access to the water. This masterfully-designed continuous connection to the sea is a design detail that is carried throughout, explains Vripack designer, Robin de Vries.
