Seven Seas Yachts was founded with one purpose in mind: to produce yachts that excel in every aspect of yacht design and production. Their philosophy is attention to detail, performance and quality to produce boating excellence. They strive to achieve the ideal balance of tradition and technology - a philosophy that was gloriously captured with the introduction of their first models, all stunning designs from the drawing boards of the Seven Seas Yachts team.
They take pride in providing a very personalized friendly service and believe that listening to the customers' wants and identifying their needs is all important. From molding the hull to applying the name, a Seven Seas Yacht is entirely created by skilled craftsmen. There is no compromise. Every installation is meticulously engineered. Every stage of the build is monitored to the most exacting standards to give you the dependability that inspires the confidence to venture far offshore.
After 3 years of research and development Seven Seas Yachts has created a new revolutionary yacht series that delivers unprecedented levels of performance, efficiency and seaworthiness. The yachts are based on their patented Amfihull®, on their sleek design which features an ultra-low profile and on engineering innovations such as the patented EDS® driveline system. The combination of all these gave birth to a legendary series of yachts: The Legend 54, S56 Open, and the Legend 56 Flybridge.
The hull’s performance characteristics are truly staggering. First of all it has a very low drag resistance which allows the use of smaller engines than similar sized boats while still being faster than its competitors. It features a really steep entry cutting the waves with an entry angle of 72 degrees that in combination with the rest of the hull, ensures a very soft ride with no pounding as the boat cuts through the waves. Furthermore the boats maintain at all cruising speeds very low trim angles between 2 and 2.8 degrees. Unlike other motor boats, there is no specific speed at which they transition to plane. Instead as the speed increases, they gradually come out of the water maintaining a nearly horizontal attitude at all times. In these boats there is no hump coming on plane. This means that one can cruise at any speed from as low as 5 knots up to the boat’s maximum speed.
The boats also feature tremendous stability characteristics due to their extremely low center of gravity. They are very stable when cruising and are able to recover from heeling angles as big as 98 degrees. These are numbers that can only be compared with those from sail boats.
Every yacht in the line will provide a legendary combination of effortless performance, magnificent ride, exceptional economy and ease of handling. In standard configuration, power comes from twin Volvo Penta IPS 600 producing 435HP each, while a conventional inboard installation with shaftdrives is also available. Taking for instance the Legend 54, using this power plant the boat will reach a top speed of 35 knots, a truly amazing accomplishment for its size. Reducing the throttle, it will cruise with ease at any speed with phenomenal economy. At the same time, the hull’s fine entry angle will cut through the waves giving it a very soft ride. Estimated fuel consumption is really impressive. For instance at 14 knots it will consume 8 gal/hr at 22 knots 17 gal/hr and at 26 knots only 23 gal/hr total. These figures demonstrate that the Legend has consumptions that are half and in some cases nearly one third of those of its competitors claiming the title of
"THE MOST EFFICIENT PRODUCTION YACHT IN THE WORLD”.
Seven Seas Yachts share construction techniques with world class competitive boat builders and racers, both sail and power. Technology that is modern. Technology created for today’s concerns. In order to ensure the rigidness and reliability of the hull, it is constructed using the very latest building technologies. E-glass fibers reinforced with aramid and vinylester resins in a sandwich construction with AIREX® foam core for the whole structure that produces the strongest and most durable structure of any fiberglass vessel made today. Vinylester resins protect against osmotic blistering and due to the elasticity of the fiberglass, reduce the chances of crazing or spider cracking. Another advantage of this process is virtually no VOCs are released into the atmosphere during the infusion process making this the most environment friendly construction method.
