“Remember When” Sailing Was a Breeze

Megayacht company Christensen Yachts has announced the launch of its newest creation Remember When, part of the custom series line of composite yachts. News was out last month that the swanky vessel was near completion and now the word is the yacht is ready to set sail. Commissioned by loyal client John Rosatti, this beauty has the makings of all that is luxury. Although the ship will not debut until October of 2010 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, after making its journey from Vancouver, WA, we thought we’d share some of its features now to help build the excitement.

Step aboard this vessel for a peek at designer accommodations from a familiar name. Carol Williamson, featured in the May/June edition of Haute Living magazine for her James Bond-inspired design on the Casino Royale, takes another stab at nautical interior design, this time using an ample six cabins that include an Owner’s Suite, VIP stateroom, and four guest cabins. Exquisite marble and stone details show throughout the vessel as well as high-gloss black walnut interiors. Voyagers can also enjoy basking in the sun on the extended sun deck and swim deck.

The vessel is a total of 157 feet in length. Twin MTU 12V 4000 series engines make it possible for Remember When to cruise the seas at 12 knots and top out at 17.5 knots. State of the art features include an integrated dynamic positioning system (DP), which allows the vessel to stay on a fixed position. Currents and winds won’t hold this luxe toy back. And forget about getting lost in the high seas, this baby comes equipped with standard radar, forward-facing sonar, 2 FLIR infrared cameras (for that perfect 180-degree view through two split screens), 2 96-nautical mile S-Band radars, and an X-Band radar.

We suspect Rosatti won’t be missing his other yacht, Nice N’ Easy that was recently put on the market. What is it that they say? The 14th is the charm? At least that is the case for Mr. Rosatti.
