With the Club’s 3rd Annual UC Open on the horizon (tournament date: September 25), we thought it would be appropriate to take a look at the design concept of the Ultimate Golf Yacht:
The 344-foot-long Fairwei (pronounced “fairway”) superyacht design concept is what happens when an award-winning design studio, professional golf trainer, and a golf-loving client from Hong Kong conspire to design a golf-centric yacht. And come to think of it, with yachts regularly being built that are much longer than the longest holes in golf, I’m surprised someone hasn’t had the idea sooner.
The concept comes from the Grey Design/Zues Twelve studio that has a reputation for innovative design and golf pro Francis Jacquemin who’s made a name for himself helping well-heeled golfers improve their swings…aboard their own charter yachts.
And there may be no better way to do that than on a yacht with numerous dedicated golf areas such as putting greens and top-deck tee boxes.
Meanwhile the interior features a swimming pool and spa that’s quite similar to what you’d expect to find in an exclusive golf resort.
Fairwei is also to reported to include: biodegradable golf balls that will turn into fish food in less than 48 hours, floating targets, and high-tech golf swing analysis software and golf shot distance calculator.
