LP Design Unveils the Explorer Yacht Commodore 57

Proposed as a stately, contemporary “classic”, the Commodore 57 (180 feet) aim to achieve the robust charm of timeless seagoing vessels, without the compromises of vintage builds.
The flowing, airy spaces aboard, combined with unique features and systems, will help ensure a truly capable yacht.
Amenities include an enclosed 10.4m expedition tender, 8.5m sport RIB, eco-friendly hybrid power, 5 staterooms, beach club, sauna, masseuse suite, elevator, pool and hot tub, dive centre, flared bow giving on-deck safety for passengers and crew of 12.

The Commodore and his Blackthorn

The name of the concept highlights the extreme practicality of this yacht.
A Commodore, being a senior naval commander, knows what works, and what makes sense.
Such an experienced man would order a purposeful, no-nonsense yacht like this.
Aside from a good bed and a creative chef, the most important tool aboard for any vacation is a capable, big tender” designer Richard Liebowitz says.
That’s why the Commodore 57 includes a 34 ft enclosed expedition tender, a fantastic machine with which to explore.

Being the perfect companion to the mother ship, this 10.4 metre craft has been called Blackthorn, after the stick a Commodore traditionally carries. 

LP Design’s proven expertise

Liebowitz & Partners has already proven their expertise in explorer yacht, having designed the 55m ice-class expedition yacht STEEL, launched in 2009 by Pendennis.
The Commodore 57 and the 55m Steel are both classically timeless, functional and robust ships that can faithfully and safely accommodate family and guests around the world in all conditions.

With regard to the external envelope, this vessel denotes enduring aesthetics and proven maritime forms that ensure comfort both underway and at anchor.
The flared, wave-breaking bow provides safety on-deck, while the heart-shaped stern guarantee a smooth ride also in following seas conditions.

The combination of easy-going hullform, large yacht tenders, versatile deck spaces, effective crew circulation, and logical service layout, make the Commodore an effective leisure machine.

Trasformability of the exterior spaces

The exterior has a wide range of spaces that will appeal to both large and more intimate groups.
This explorer has a logical layout and many functional elements, arranged artfully.
One of her hallmarks is the transformability of some areas, such as the Aft Deck and the Sky Lounge.

The bow deck hosts one of the two spa pools aboard, a raised seating group positioned ahead of the foremast and a 5.5 meter rescue tender that can be launched in seconds using a pre-programmed robotic crane. From there, the access stairs bring the guest to the Coachroof Lounge.
A walk-around porgies observation bridge connects this lounge area to the control bridge.

The second pool lies at the heart of the leisure operation: the deck lounge.
The entire owner’s party can get comfortable on this deck with pool, shaded drink bar, various sun loungers, and great views. The 4.7 meter long saltwater heated pool is a prelude to sunbathing one deck up, in the Sky Lounge.

The beach club area is one deck below, and it includes a sauna (a circular steam Banya) as well as a treatment and massage suite. A unique clamshell stern door gives access to a teak wood swim platform. A second, bottom-hinger beach platform emerges from the port side.

Home-like interior with dual-use spaces

Liebowitz & Partners has unveiled two proposals for the interior of the Commodore 57: light colors are the essence of the first concept, while the second is based on a darker palette.
Both solutions are ready to be customized to the owner’s requested style.
LP Design blends rigorous architectural order with engaging vignettes, varies finishes, appropriate detailing, and insightful lighting.

The interior is detailed not as a home, but purposefully and discretely fitted out as a sea-going ship. The owner’s personalization is essential for creating a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere: ideally the client would provide personal objects, which LP Design would sensitively integrate into the décor, to make the yacht more of their home.

The interior of Commodore, like the exterior, features multi-uses spaces: the arrival lobby serves as a drinks bar, and the skylounge serves as a day lounge, reading room, formal banquet hall, or business meeting center.

The Studio

The award-winning studio Liebowitz & Partners aims to offer creativity, clarity, practiality, and appropriate inventiveness to the client’s project.
The owner’s Project Brief is the guideline, which LP Design advance step-by-step, with client approvals, toward increasing specificity and commitment to the build specification.

As a private studio, Liebowitz & Partners operate with a firm confidentiality ethos, ensuring staff and suppliers assure client privacy.

At the core of LP Design lies the belief that each functional element should work to reinforce the underlying concept.
