THE NEW SUPERYACHT CONCEPTS

Concept yachts, much like their automotive counterparts, provide yacht designers with a unique opportunity to push their imaginations to the limit and develop ideas that may find their way into future production. While the following 10 concept yachts may never know the crash of a Champagne bottle against their hulls, they are certainly exciting early glimpses of tomorrow’s real-world yachts.

Sleek as a bullet and seemingly as fast, the Belafonte by Federico Fiorentino will have the potential to reach speeds of up to 24 knots. In fact, Fiorentino took inspiration for the luxury yacht design from sports cars. The bronze-hued, 164-foot Belafonte features five staterooms and a skylounge, along with a 2.5-year build time and a $26.4 million tag. (federicofiorentino.it)

A radical departure from standard seafaring form, the 435-foot Star—the shared vision of Italy’s Lobanov Design and Britain’s BMT Nigel Gee—rises up like a white pyramid from the water. Powered by eight generators, the private yacht is equipped with two azimuth thrusters that can be set to slowly rotate the boat over the course of the day to maximize sun exposure. Latticework windows throughout all eight decks add an ethereal, celestial element. (lobanovdesign.com)

A recent addition to Pastrovich Studio’s Parkour yacht line, the 90m X-Kid Stuff mirrors the active and fit lifestyle of its intended owners with its own impressive strength-to-weight ratio, thanks to the honeycomb-like construction. Along with requisite staircase access, a rock-climbing wall, and a fire pole facilitate quick deck-to-deck transitions aboard the 295-foot yacht, while an inflatable jetty connecting to the beach eliminates any unwanted downtime waiting for transport.

Both increased size and sustainability set the latest leviathan from Nauta Yachts apart from the megayacht masses. Employing both diesel and electric power, the 541-foot hybrid can cruise at 18 knots with a range of 6,900 miles. Created with efficient use of space in mind, Project Gleam’s seven decks feature a hammam, a disco, a casino, a theater, 16 sleeping quarters, and multiple cocktail bars. (nautayachts.com)

A ship for all seasons, the nearly 264-foot Skyback—designed by Cor D. Rover for Fincantieri—features a retractable climate-controlled glass enclosure for its aft deck pool so that inclement conditions will not prevent those onboard from making a splash. Yet with six decks—including one for owners only—the Skyback graciously accommodates 10 guests without anyone feeling like they are in a fishbowl.

The 308-foot Purity from Azure Naval Architects ups the ante on space and speed with the ability to reach 21 knots and a cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles. Inside, guests have access to a beach club, a wellness area, and a gym. In the off chance even more space is needed, the pool floor aft can be raised to create extra space or for use as a helipad.

With a piercing profile, Oceanco’s 351-foot Stiletto is also a cut above others in its class when it comes to interior space, thanks to an architecture partnership with BMT and design by Ken Freivokh. A two-story saloon gives approximately 20 feet of vertical relief, while a whirlpool-equipped owner’s suite, and seven guest cabins are complemented by two swimming pools (one of which is 25 feet long), a waterfall feature, gym, and beach club. Two MTU 16V2000 M72 engines and a hybrid propulsion installation keep her efficiently slicing through the water at up to 18.5 knots. (oceancoyacht.com)
