Invictus Solandge - 2

By: Craig Barnett Photography: Klaus Jordan THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS… …and what we found there. In Lewis Caroll’s enduring and endearing contribution to 19th Century literary nonsense–Alice in Wonderland–the Cheshire Cat fades until it disappears entirely, leaving only its wide grin. Having just returned from St Thomas, USVI’s after an enchanting day aboard Solandge, our grin has yet to fade. Available for charter, has the yard once again produced a classic that will be treasured for generations to com

The hull form and engineering may be the footprint upon which this line of yachts stands, but in no way can they be considered ‘a series’ as each is entirely custom and posses a unique individual character.

TRAVIS LUDBROOK SOLANDGE’S CHIEF ENGINEER LURSSEN 279’: MY SOLANDGE At what stage were you involved in the build project Travis and how was the experience at Lürssen?

Aft coamings and vertical surfaces have also been finished in blue, so the white upper decks are picked out with a delicacy that avoids the heavy ‘wedding cake effect’ prevalent in so many marinas around the world. From the extension of the forward overhang of the owner’s stateroom, to topping out with the rakish radar mast and stainless-steel funnels arrays, Espen Oeino has infused his exterior design with...

The bathing platform also enjoys a natural connection with the cockpit, thanks to the wide central transom staircase; a feature carried over from the owner’s previous yacht, Polar Star (also designed by Espen Oeino).

This is particularly useful in the evening as the likelihood is you’ll be enjoying dinner here too–in reality the interior formal dining areas are rarely used on yachts– and this is when Solandge’s remarkable lighting design demonstrates its ability to transform the ambience. Under-tread lighting on the...
