Hazy impressions of exotic voyages to Asia; a Far Eastern feel set against a richly evocative backdrop of enchanted memories expressed through the sumptuous interior décor. An atmosphere pervaded by colours and references to ancient Chinese art, blended wonderfully with a leitmotif of marine flora and fauna.
The main dimensional and technical data
Blue Eyes was given yard identification number CRN126 and is based on the naval architecture developed in–house by CRN Engineering. She was built using steel for the hull and light aluminium alloy for the superstructure. The yacht is compliant with the Lloyd’s Register, Maltese Cross 100 A1 SSC – YACHT, MONO, G6 classification, as well as the standards for Lloyd’s Register, Maltese Cross 100 A1 SSC – YACHT, MONO, G6 and Rina Charter Class. As for her dimensions, Blue Eyes has a length overall of 59.8 metres, equivalent to 196.5 ft, with a maximum beam of 10.2 metres (33.5 ft).
The maximum draught of the hull is 2 metres (just under 10 ft), while she displaces 775 tons when fully loaded (more than 1 million 710 thousand pounds).
Blue Eyes has a displacing hull and a bulbous bow with a long skeg; she also has a tunnel bowthruster and a stabilizer system for use during navigation and when at anchor, with electrohydraulically-operated twin lateral fin stabilizers. Her engine room contains two 12 V Caterpillar engines (CAT 3512B series – Chp rating): each displaces a total of 51.8 litres (3158 cc), and has a maximum output of 1950 bhp, equivalent to 1454 bkW, supplied at 1835 rpm.
As for her performance, when half loaded Blue Eyes can reach a top speed of 15 knots and maintain a cruising speed of 14 knots. At her economy cruising speed of 12 knots, the yacht has a range of 4000 nautical miles, partly thanks to her fuel tanks, which have a capacity of 107 thousand litres (equivalent to more than 28,300 US gallons). Meanwhile, her fresh water tanks can hold 20 thousand litres (nearly 5300 US gallons), and are kept topped up by a watermaker system that can product 14 thousand litres daily (equivalent to more than 3700 US gallons). Three 50-Hz generator sets have been installed on Blue Eyes, based on Caterpillar diesel engines. The two main ones are six-cylinder inline engines from the CAT C9 series, each displacing 8.8 litres (538 cc) and supplying 175 ekW / 219 kVA at 1500 rpm.
The emergency generator is a four-cylinder inline engine (CAT C4.4 series) with 4.4 litres displacement (269 cc), supplying 86 ekW / 107 kVA at 1500 rpm. Blue Eyes’ outfittings include two main tenders, each 7.5 metres (24.5 ft) long, both stored in the lower deck garage; she also has two waverunners and a rescue and service tender garaged on deck in the technical area on the main fore deck.
The sun terrace on the aft sun deck can be turned into a touch and go helipad if necessary, with a load capacity of up to 3 thousand kg (6600 pounds), so that the Owners and their guests are free to come and go as they wish. [...]
