- 35.36m | Lazzara | 2009 (2021/22)
Highly polished warm red wood panelling contrasts with zesty colour pops and neutral soft furnishings, creating the perfect escape for a vacation to remember.
The 35.36m QTR (aka Quality Time Remaining) was built in 2009 and refitted throughout during 2021/22 with a thoughtful redrawing of her space heavily influenced by eclectic, brightly hued and retro modern touches. New artwork, soft furnishings and textiles plus a state-of-the-art entertainment system were included in the upgrade of this deluxe East Coast-based superyacht, which cruises the Caribbean during the winter season.
A timelessly elegant décor pervades her expansive main salon with oversized sofas, polished red wood detail, rugs and occasional furniture creating a sassy clubroom feel. The far end of this open plan space is designated for dining and stands out effortlessly as it is dominated by an angular high tech glass dining table and mid-century style white leather dining chairs overlooked by a colourful funky neon pop art piece, making it a unique and intimate area for cosy suppers.
Accommodating eight guests in four sublime staterooms, the polished wood panelled theme continues in the iconic master suite, which boasts a cosy mini salon area with sofa, integral office, impressive ensuite with bath and full size shower, cream carpets and a kingsize bed, creating a classically elegant art deco atmosphere which harks back to a bygone era. All remaining cabins – two queens and one bunk style - boast hotel-grade linens and good proportions as well as beautifully functional ensuites.
A sun deck hot tub adjacent to casual banquette club-style seating is the perfect location for drinks and snacks or a sunset apero. There’s also extensive bench seating stylishly accented with nautical blue and white scatter cushions, the perfect spot from which to stargaze. Two full-service bars and numerous further dining choices up the ante on wining and dining options.
Water lovers will adore the hydraulic swim platform from which you can partake in any number of ocean-going activities: QTR is equipped with a stylish Scout 35’ LXF tow tender as well as kayaks, inflatable floating island, jet skis, paddleboards, Seabobs, a beach club set up, fishing, snorkelling and diving gear and even a surf board.
QTR’s chef Brittany Garcia has worked in fine dining for the last 12 years, excelling in the kitchens of several James Beard award-winning chefs on the East Coast. A self-confessed fan of Italy, she studied Italian culinary arts at Ganzo before cooking her way around Florence, Rome and Sicily.
A typical menu will feature deliciously nourishing breakfasts like crab cake benedict, a power grains bowl, chive and dill frittata, asparagus and goats cheese quiche, scrambled eggs and gravadlax or granola stuffed French toast. Lunch platters include sweet potato gnocchi with braised lamb and tomatoes, buttermilk crispy panko chicken with arugula salad, lobster and crème fraiche rolls, chimichurri chicken and grapefruit salad and barbecued sliders with broccolini and endive slaw.
Save room for a three course evening feast of melon burrata, grilled halibut with mesquite-smoked caper butter and couscous and affogato panna cotta, or a cheese and charcuterie sharing platter followed by chicken and seafood jambalaya and suzette citrus sponge pudding with Grand Marnier brown butter sauce.
As you might expect, her hidden technical interiors more than match her aesthetics; QTR recently underwent a full mechanical overhaul. Her cruising speed is an impressive 15 knots and her twin HP Diesel MTU engines are 2000 BHP. Stabilisers at anchor and while underway will keep you steady and comfortable for the duration of your time on board.
