New Model: Cayman F920

Cayman Yachts continues its comeback and after the presentation of the S450 in the fall of 2017, it pushes harder for 2018 and presents a new flagship which enters the builder in super yacht territory, the new F920. A reminder here is that previous to this the largest Cayman ever build was the 75 HT launched in 2009.  Presented as a project in the fall of 2017 its been a non stop journey to go from concept to completion and the F920 making it in the water in August 2018.  Cayman and designer Ferragni unlike most offers in this 27 to 28 meter size presented what is a sporty looking flybridge super yacht with a raised pilot house that integrates very nice into the design.  Vertical minimal elements integrate into a straight shear-line which emphasizes an aggressive yet modern and in the same time light appearing upper structure.  In some aspects the F920 exterior profile reminds me of mid eighties Paolo Caliari, a nimble looking flybridge super yacht, that does not look to heavy up top.  Inside the Cayman F920 offers an interior with four cabins and an owners stateroom located at midships, very spacious VIP suite forward, and two guest cabins in between.  Cayman F920 will also be offered in a five cabin version, but currently the builder is not showing any plans for this. A crew lobby with two cabins is located at midships in between the engine room and the owners midships room.  The interior main deck is centered around a welcoming saloon, central dinette, day head to starboard, and a galley in the forward end part.  The pilot house is located three steps up centrally, and with this same stair case one can also access the spacious fly deck, which offers for the most part a free area on plan with helm and galley located to starboard, and a central dining table.  In the finishing the Cayman F920 has gone a long way to offer details from Studio Art for leather, lamps by Porta Romana, BandB and Minotti for sofas, and fabrics by Rubelli and Armani. The Cayman F920 hull one is powered by the large engine option of twin MTU 2600hp, but standard engine option is for Man twin 1900hp, and another optional being that of quadruple Volvo 1000hp units with IPS pod propulsion.
