Olesinski’s new superyacht concept is essentially a wellness facility for the high seas.

The 70-metre ride, known as Rise, features a fully equipped spa on par with that of a five-star hotel. The British studio reached out to Coral Spa Consultants and Gym Marine, as well as various charter captains and hotel spa consultants to ensure the floating retreat was up to snuff.

“The concept of Rise is simple,” Justin Olesinski, the studio’s managing director, said in a statement. “Provide a no-compromise spa zone that has every luxury.”

To that end, the spa zone is equipped with an infinity pool, a spa bath, a plunge pool, a massage room, and an aesthetics salon. The interior layout is also arranged in such a way that the crew can provide seamless service to seafarers and still maintain their own well-being.

Olesinski designed Rise at the request of Dörries Yachs. The German yard wanted a vessel focused on wellness, as the trend has well and truly infiltrated the marine sector. (Nuvolari-Lenard and Arcadia Yachts are just two of many industry players incorporating enhanced areas for health and wellness into new concepts.)

“We began discussions with Justin Olesinski and agreed that we wanted to create something that centred around wellness, a focal point that we have seen a huge increase in in the market,” the yard’s CEO, Henning Dörries, explains.

The spa is simply the cherry on top of one sophisticated superyacht. Rise showcases long, sleek lines, cascading curved decks, and a near-vertical bow that together create an undeniably striking silhouette. With a beam of roughly 14 metre, the newcomer has a large living area that can be easily navigated by the elevator.

The light and airy interior can accommodate up to 12 seafarers in six generous staterooms. The pick of the bunch is, of course, the owner’s suite. Located forward on the upper deck, the secluded haven includes a bedroom, a private office, a dressing room, and an en suite.

The exterior decks are also geared toward relaxation. The bridge deck is home to a bar and a lounge, the giant foredeck is outfitted with plush alfresco seating, and the aft deck sports poolside sunbeds. To top it off, Rise has a sizeable garage that can hold a 10-metre tender, a 6-metre inflatable Zodiac, four Jet Skis, and a few Seabobs.

“Our hope is that Rise will appeal to a client who wants a unique yacht with wellness at the heart of the design but also with Northern European build quality; without the need to wait years in order to start the build,” added Dörries.

If that sounds like you, contact the shipyard to make Rise a reality.
