The 172-foot Halter Marine motoryacht SuRi is currently undergoing a refit at San Francisco's Bay Ship and Yacht. When she emerges from the yard at the end of May, SuRi is expected to have two new full-beam guest cabins, an expanded sun and shade area, a new glass-enclosed lounge, two exercise/meeting rooms, and a new media room featuring the "Windows of the Sea" design shown in the rendering at right.
As management company 37 South explains it, the idea behind "Windows of the Sea" is to let guests see what is happening beneath the yacht while they are seated around a media-room cocktail table. The view shown here is what guests will see while standing up and looking down through the center of the cocktail table.
High-intensity lights are being installed beneath the windows, to attract fish and other marine life. The goal is to create a constantly changing aquarium for charter guests to enjoy.
That's something I haven't seen before on any charter yacht, and I look forward to seeing it aboard SuRi in real life. The yacht is expected to become available for charter again immediately after the refit's completion.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about SuRi or help you book a week onboard this summer.
