The S-65: Compact choices
The S-65 is a compact and aluminium fast displacement motoryacht with a top speed of 22 knots. We are offering her in two different versions: Wheelhouse and Flybridge.
Both are ideal for people who enjoy a great deal of manoeuvrability, speed boating and water skiing.
The S-65 Wheelhouse can be supplied with a mast and radar dome, which can be electrically lowered to reduce the clearance to a mere 4.65 metres.
This also makes European rivers and lakes more accessible. The option exists to have a comfortable sun bed for two placed behind the mast.
The S-65 Flybridge design adds significantly more living/lounge space and a second helm that takes comfort to an even higher level.
The feeling of luxurious sailing pleasure is further enhanced by unrestricted views on a sun deck that is ideal for enjoying a drink while appreciating the cool breeze.
Like their sister ships in the S-series, the S-65 Wheelhouse and S-65 Flybridge offer you:
- Speed: The S-65 can reach 22 knots thanks to her innovative drive technology (shaft drives an option)
- Her patented FDFH hull shape guarantees excellent sailing characteristics and significant fuel savings
- A distinctive exterior profile
- Large interior volume that optimises comfort
- The latest technologies
- Dutch standards of finishing and detail
- A wealth of customisation options inside and out, incl. propulsion
Individual Design Service
Every yacht in the STORM series benefits from an impressive design, pure craftsmanship, multiple innovations and considerable attention to detail. A wide selection of colours, wood types, finishes, carpets and upholstery is available to individualise each yacht to a high degree. And if you need even more choice, you can use our Individual Design Service to totally customise your interior.
With a truly unlimited choice of materials and finishing styles, your bespoke interior will be designed in conjunction with Omega Architects. The result will be a unique STORM yacht that totally reflects the taste, lifestyle, preferences and personality of her owners.
And there is more. You can take customisation to an even higher level by working with your architect on a distinctive layout. Perhaps you’d like two larger suites, or an extra cabin or a different location for the galley. With the Individual Design Service the choice is truly yours.
The S-65 has an interior volume that allows you to feel very much at home. One of the key features of the layout is the two starboard holds. You can customise the use of these very useful spaces – one of the current S-65 clients has, for example, opted for a utility space under the stairs with a fitness room behind it.
The choice is yours… In fact you can select your own interior layout as well as the design and decorative style. We recommend doing so with Frank Laupman but you can bring in your own designer if you prefer.
As a rule, we recommend fitting Volvo IPS propulsion onboard the S-65. This new propulsion system is suitable for large yachts powered by engines up to 900 hp and comprises a standard transmission mounted to a steerable pod unit with twin, counter-rotating propellers.
The superior efficiency of the Volvo IPS compared to traditional propulsion systems results in an increased cruising speed of up to 15% with the same installed power. This improved performance is accompanied by up to 20% reduction in fuel consumption.
If shaft drive propulsion is your preference, you can have Caterpillar engines with V-drive shaft propulsion installed on your Storm S-65. Of course, the choice for an engine of a different make is possible. As always we would be delighted to discuss the options with you.
