NEXT by Azure Yacht Design
"Our goal [with NEXT] was to create a 70-meter experience on a 50-meter yacht. NEXT is designed for the jet set; it will be great in any type of metropolitan environment, luxury marinas, etc. It’s also created for pure nature … places where you just want to sit at anchor and enjoy everything around you.”
– Bob van den Meiracker, Azure Yacht Design
Resort Yacht Experience
NEXT is the Resort Yacht Experience. NEXT offers multiple entertainment areas to be enjoyed day or night, at rest or underway. All guest areas, interior and exterior, are fully accessible to everyone, without the need for stairs. Outdoor entertaining is further enhanced by flexible furniture arrangements, to accommodate larger groups or intimate gatherings.
The Owner’s Suite is ideally situated in the most comfortable location on the yacht, and has direct access to the Beach Club & Spa. In fact, the Owner’s Stateroom and the four (4) double Guest Staterooms all have a direct, same-level corridor straight through the Beach Club & Day Spa to the large swim platform.
By placing both the Owner and Guest Staterooms on the Guest Deck, the PRIME Team created a forward-facing Sky Lounge on the Main Deck, further enhancing her megayacht look and feel.
And to create a dedicated leisure zone on the Foredeck, the Team repurposed the yachts’ forward tender garage for use as a large 7.7-meter long swimming pool. Furthermore, all mooring equipment was hidden under the Main Deck, and a glass bulwark was placed all around, creating a spacious, wind-free outdoor lounging experience.
Featuring massive, forward facing windows, the Sky Lounge has direct access to the foredeck entertaining area.
Virtually all luxury areas above the Main Deck are surrounded by full-height glass, creating bright interiors and spectacular panoramic views. The open-plan layout in the main Salon and Dining Area further enhances this full panorama experience.
With the main Lounge facing the stern, and the Sky Lounge facing the bow, NEXT provides her guests with 360° views from all luxury areas at any time. The Sky Lounge not only acts as the perfect area from which to keep an eye on children playing in the pool, it is also a great place to relax and enjoy the view while cruising to the next exotic destination.
Beach Club and Spa
NEXT’s spacious Beach Club & Spa opens up to the surroundings via a stern hatch and portside beach platform. It boasts a flushmounted hot tub for up to five (5) guests, a steam room, sauna, shower, gym, balcony, and an-all glass stern door. In a word … spectacular!
The Beach Club & Spa is easily accessible while on the lower deck. From all guest staterooms there is a direct, same-level corridor leading straight to the Beach Club and to the large swim platform, perfect for an early morning swim in the ocean.
The Wheelhouse and Captain’s Cabin features a dedicated staircase with direct access to the Main Deck.

Close collaboration between the PRIME Megayacht Platform founders and Azure’s design & engineering team resulted in the redistribution of space on NEXT to house the propulsion system in the Tank Deck. With said Deck now resembling the engine room layout of large sailing yachts, a tremendous amount of luxury space was opened up on the Guest Deck. In essence, a 70+ meter yachting experience was created on a 50 meter yacht.
NEXT offers a wide variety of entertainment areas to be enjoyed day or night, at rest or underway. All guest areas, both interior and exterior, are fully accessible to all owners and guests, regardless of age and without the need for stairs. Outdoor entertaining is further enhanced by flexible furniture arrangements, to accommodate large groups or small intimate gatherings.
