The number of yachts under construction in Brazil continues to rise (nearly doubling its 2005 ShowBoats International Global Order Book total) as more owners look to the largest South American nation to bid on the construction of their new yachts.
Inace, located in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, is the nation’s largest builder of custom yachts. The yard’s 35-year build history includes tugs, military patrol craft, offshore supply vessels and, since 1987, yachts.
In recent years, Inace has built a reputation for delivering well-executed, deepwater, expedition-style motor yachts. The yard’s latest launch, Victoria, a 106-foot (32.3-meter) steel and aluminum tri-deck, is for a Brazilian owner.
Victoria was drawn by Inace’s in-house design team, including naval architect Márcio Ferreira Igreja. Interior and exterior designer Mavignier de Lima relied on Freijo, a teak-like South American wood, to create a classic ambiance.
The three staterooms on the lower deck include a full-beam, midship queen master suite, which features a settee, vanity and split baths. Two other ensuite cabins feature twin and queen berths.
The forecastle houses the bi-level crew quarters for four crewmembers in two cabins. Access is from the deck or via a walk-through bulkhead from the guest quarters that eases housekeeping chores. The galley features a breakfast bar that can be closed off and serves a portside dinette. Opposite the informal dining area is the salon bar.
A foldout couch in the skylounge abaft the wheelhouse allows the space to double as a cabin. An adjacent full bath also serves as a dayhead. The wheelhouse can be segregated from the guest cabin by closing a door to keep cabin activities from intruding on night navigation. A pair of 650-hp Volvo engines pushes Victoria to a top speed of 12 knots. Her range at 10 knots is 4,700 nautical miles.
