MY After 8 (29.9m / 98ft, PR Marine Yachtbau GMBH & Co.)

The PR marine 98 by designed by Frank Mulder is a yacht that was a build ahead of her time. Some of the amazing and innovative features on board are now considered to be standard yacht options. So much so that this particular vessel has featured in a James Bond movie and is a history which always creates a taking point on board.

The designer Frank Mulder created a futuristic work of art which exhibits many features that are truly innovative. Recently refitted over 1 year in 2014 this GRP PR Marine 98 presents beautifully.

The full beam salon with 11 large viewing windows creates an open ambient feeling and brings the outside ocean environment in. The 3 cabin layout plus crew means that all cabins have excellent volume in all areas of the cabin.

Boarding the vessel is either by the molded port and starboard side entry’s or from the stern on the 9 m2 swim platform. Twin companionways to the cockpit from port and starboard give great flow particularly when out using the boat and her water toys.

The 18 m2 aft teak cock pit is fully covered in addition to the drop down custom sides and aft covers for protection during mooring, bad weather or enhanced privacy. Cockpit features include dimmable ceiling lights, fridge, cockpit speakers and dining for 6 at the cockpit dining table and serving bar. Access to the crew cabins and engine room is via the port cockpit companionway. The Sonos system throughout allows the owner and guests to use the multiple iPads on board to play videos, music, web surf in different zones set though out the vessel allowing personal entertainment choice where ever you are on board.

The true brilliance of the design and one of the most significant features on this PR Marine 98 is the salon. At 50 m2 this area is enhanced by 11 windows and auto opening aft sliding doors with 24 m2 of glass giving breathtaking views to the sea. The salon is a fantastic entertaining area which is enhanced by the abundance of glazing in the salon.–PR-Marine-98
