THALIA was recognized with the 1994 Showboats Award for Best Sailing Yacht Interior. Designer Elmar Meurer has successfully integrated the yacht's state-of-the-art technology with a classic nautical design. Colombo Mobili's exquisitely crafted mahogany panelling and marble showers contribute to the boat's elegant and enduring feel. The ingenious interior layout provides comfortable living, dining and sleeping areas for twelve guests and eight crew.
MAIN DECK A spacious deck level SALON with large panoramic windows is the central social area of the boat. Glass panelled double doors open from the salon out onto an expansive protected deck area. An innovative, retractable awning extends from the salon roof, thus integrating the interior and exterior space.
LOWER DECK The OWNER and GUEST staterooms are located below deck where careful attention has been paid to noise and vibration reduction. The Owner's suite comprises a master bedroom, a study and lounge area, connecting bathrooms. Two large cabins with twin beds and pull-down bunks are adjacent. Two more guest bedrooms are situated forward near the dining and lounge area. The forward cabin has been turned into a gym. It can be used as a single cabin. Efficient and unobtrusive operation of the boat is facilitated by the clever arrangement of the CREW QUARTERS. Accommodations for the captain, engineer and mate are located aft in the "nerve centre" of the boat with easy access to the engine room and pilothouse. Additional crew quarters are located forward together with the crew's mess, laundry and spacious galley that extend the full width of the hull. A full size ENGINE ROOM allows easy access for maintenance of the Caterpillar main engine and two generators and other auxiliary equipment.
Ron Holland's hull provides optimum speed, stability and manoeuvrability for the restricted depth. It incorporates a large-volume, long-drag bulb keel with asymmetrical section wings built into the aft of the bulb. These wings optimize the draft for windward performance, contribute to the overall hydrodynamics of the keel and enhance the exceptional sailing balance of the yacht. The carbon fibre spars, constructed by Omohundro, provide extraordinary rigidity and weight saving. They are some of the largest of their kind ever built. A custom-designed diesel engine tender fits into a recessed cradle in the foredeck, preserving the graceful profile of the yacht. In addition to the large lazarette, there are numerous storage spaces for lines, fenders and sporting equipment built directly into the deck. A unique feature of the sail handling controls is the self-tailing captive winches designed exclusively for Vitters Shipyard. Electrically powered on 24v DC current, the winches take full advantage of the yacht's enormous generators and battery capacity. They provide far more efficiency and reliability. THALIA's direct cable steering is so well balanced that fingertip control is possible. She can also be steered hydraulically if the autopilot is engaged.Sensitivity and handling exceed expectations for a boat of her size.
