Travelers seeking tranquility will find it aboard Grace E, a 240-foot yacht from naval architect and designer Philippe Briand’s Vitruvius Yachts. The sundeck serves as a health spa, and the diesel-electric propulsion system enables the yacht, which was built by Perini Navi’s Picchiotti division and delivered in September, to cruise in near silence. Among other amenities, the sundeck contains a massage room with a wet-and-dry sauna and a mediation room. Whether they are ruminating in the meditation room, watching a movie from the Kaleidescape library in the skylounge, or lounging in the main-deck saloon, guests will not be disturbed by the yacht’s electric power plant. When the system is producing enough energy to propel the yacht at 14 knots, the noise level in the saloon reaches just 45.5 decibels, which is about as loud as it is in a library. The propulsion system is also efficient enough to give Grace E a range of about 5,500 nautical miles, enabling the yacht to provide peace of mind as well as peace and quiet.
