Richmond’s Status Quo Redux

  • Danielle Cutler Wallin

Richmond Yachts launched the second Status Quo, a new tri-deck yacht that logs in at 150 feet, with a 28-foot beam and seven-foot, four-inch draft (max). Made in its British Columbia yard, this is a follow-up to 2003’s 138-foot delivery of the first Status Quo, and it is the largest glass-reinforced plastic composite yacht to launch in Canada. Ward Setzer styled her exterior, and Pavlik Yacht Design created her interior in conjunction with Richmond Yachts.

Status Quo features a touch-and-go helipad for a Eurocopter EC120, a first for Richmond. The helipad shares what Richmond dubs the “Fun Deck” with a bar, stools, and a 46-inch TV in the shade of the radar arch, plus a large hot tub surrounded by sun pads, and an air-conditioned day head. For more alfresco fun, the main aft deck offers seating and dining space out of the sun, as well as another bar and television, plus a teppanyaki grill—not to mention air-conditioning. For water-sports fun, the yacht carries an 18-foot tender and a dive compressor. Status Quo accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms, including a main-deck master with onyx-lined his-and-hers bathrooms. Space for 10 crew members can be found down below in five cabins. Twin DDC/MTU marine engines with 2,000 horsepower each give the yacht 16 knots at 1,600 rpm and 18 knots at 2,350, with a range of 3,500 nautical miles. (954.242.6451, www.richmondyachts.com)
