Though known more for its commercial vessels than its luxury yachts, Freire Shipyard—based in Vigo, Spain—was the perfect place to secretly build and launch what would otherwise have been a high-profile project. H2 Yacht Design and Moore Design dreamed up her exteriors styling and her interior is by Mark Berryman. She is built for serious expedition with long-range capabilities (10,000nm at 14 knots), with extras such as a helicopter landing pad and space for a submarine. Built to comply with Lloyd’s commercial and research vessel standards, Pegaso was built to assist global research into different marine ecosystems. Five sumptuous main-deck guest cabins and three staff cabins complement the top-deck owner’s “penthouse,” while space for 22 crew occupies the lower deck. Pegaso is available for charter through Edmiston.
