Exploring the bolder side of superyacht design, both in size and architectural features, designer Isaac Burrough has released his studio’s latest concept this week. The 100-metre motor yacht project is an experiment by the Amsterdam-based studio in working with large surfaces consisting of straight lines and hard angles to deliver a powerful yet simple look.
A massive raised bow with a freeboard of 11 metres was the starting point of the design and also works to carry the tough presence of the rest of the project’s angular shapes. This is also one of the most innovative areas of the design with a window section that spans two decks and creates an awesome floor-to-ceiling effect inside the owner’s cabin that is located here. “The yacht owes part of its powerful aesthetic to its cab-forward stance,” comments Burrough. “This has the effect of shortening the bow and increasing the aft deck areas, with more useable outdoor space and good wind protection.”
A three-storey atrium amidships is flanked by another massive glass section on either side that lets in even more natural light during the day and at night serves as an observatory of the night sky.
The 17.1-metre-wide beam is put to good use on the lower deck where the vessel’s beach club is placed. Here, the full width of the yacht extends even further when the two massive side terraces are opened, with a third opening at the stern making this one single waterside oasis where guests can take in nearly 360-degree views. A unique circular pool on the main deck is fitted with a glass bottom that allows sunlight to filter through and into the beach lounge area below.
A special spa area can be found on the owner’s deck above where an extravagant 10-metre-long bottomless infinity pool is the first thing you notice when stepping out on deck.
The yacht is capable of carrying three 12-metre tenders that are launched through a hatch forward of the yacht while a helicopter landing pad on the bow makes airport transfers a breeze.
