New Model: Queens Yachts 86

Queens Yachts presents its new flagship model, the 86.  This model takes over from the Queens 72 as the biggest model of a six model line up which starts at 47 feet, and put the Italian builder on the plus eighty feet Super Yacht size map.  Designed by architects Vienna and Locarno from the Milan TDF Studio, the new Queens flagship offers a modern line with latest technical innovation, and well laid out interior.  The innovative technical features abound in this model starting from the propulsion of four by Volvo IPS pods, to Seakeeper gyro stabilizers, and Humphree trim tabs.  The design innovation is the sports bridge, now becoming quite a must to have on sport yachts over a certain size.  The interior of the Queens 86 offers a four double guest cabins layout, with all cabins having a private en-suite shower head.  The owners staterooms located to midships is a full beam layout and apart being spacious has also a walk in wardrobe.  There is also a fifth day head located by the stairway which brings you from the living saloon main deck.  To midships behind the owners room is a separate technical area featuring the spacious L-shaped galley, and a crew lobby with small saloon, and cabin with a well sized bathroom.  The main deck which is the living offers a three seat central helm station, eight person dining area, and two sofas, the larger of which is an L-shaped. The stern tender garage can sit two tenders; a rib, and a jet bike.  Power is from two choices; traditional shaft propulsion from twin MTU 1920hp, or quadruple 700hp Volvo with IPS pods.
