My Rock ExteriorWhen Canadian weather throws its endless changes and craziness, perhaps you need M/Y ROCK, the SUV of the seas. An explorer yacht like no other, inspired by the durability of marble and Land Rover, yet softened by the warmth of a tactile interior, 24m ROCK, designed by Dutch studio Vripack, is built for comfortable adventure. 

Launched - and sold to her current owner - at the 2018 Cannes Boat Show where she made her international debut, ROCK is defined by her voluminous open plan layout and uninterrupted sight lines.

My Rock InteriorDutch studio Vripack's design philosophy is informed by a creative, holistic and collaborative approach. When paired with Turkish yard Evadne and project managers Tufan and Brothers, the result is robust and spacious; ROCK boasts 44 per cent more interior space and 49 per cent more exterior space than an average or similar-sized yacht.

Characterised by an enticing interior design, where textured fabrics and soft furnishings contrast with maple wood finishes and angular 3D shapes, ROCK truly serves as an inviting home from home. The owner intends on spending many weeks living on board, cruising the intimate ports of the Mediterranean.


My Rock BowIn addition to an interior that is akin to a contemporary loft apartment, ROCK possesses a high straight bow to intercept rough seas and a low aft for easy access to the water. This masterfully-designed continuous connection to the sea is a design detail that is carried throughout, explains Vripack designer, Robin de Vries.


Featuring a Fast Displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure, ROCK reaches a rapid top speed of 16 knots and a respectable cruising speed of 12 knots. Powered by two CAT C12 engines at 1,000hp, she boasts a Transatlantic range of 3000 Nm.

Currently, a second hull is under construction. Maybe it could be yours? Is there a cruise to Baffin Island in your future? $3.8 MM Euros + options. Not bad!
