Behold: the Crescere – a 132m concept superyacht – green on the outside and green(isn) under the skin with a greenhouse, tropical garden and planted lounge area at its core, watered by an autonomous sensor and software system.
Huge glass panels on the hull admit sunlight and on the foredeck, a seawater swimming pool disappears when not in use to make room for a helipad. A electric-diesel hybrid engine powers electric motors with biofuel generators for general navigation, switching to diesel power for faster crossings.
Behold: Adastra – a luxury 43 meter trimaran originally commissioned by Hong Kong-based businessman Antony Marden from UK based builders Shuttleworth Design.
The stripped-down, lightweight carbon fibre and kevlar cruiser has a full-width master ensuite bedroom, two guest cabins, a massive 1,150 bhp Caterpillar C18 engine with a top speed of 23 knots and a 10-knot cruising range of 10,000 nautical miles.
Yours for a knockdown €10,700,000 ono.
Behold; the Technicon Carat 187 superyacht by Technicon Design – an inexplicable (possibly promotional) 57 metre ultra luxury concept inspired by ‘the world of the red carpet’ with a dramatic pair of articulated stairs reaching out to two matching tenders docked either side.
Yours in your dreams.
Behold: the Project Valkyrie Superyacht – just a concept for now but soon to be the world’s biggest luxury yacht.
Designed by Chulhun Park and Palmer Johnson, the massive 229m trimaran vessel, capable of a nippy 25 knots top speed – will accommodate 52 guests and 92 crew with a casino, theatre, mall, restaurants, and exhibition halls.
Estimated build cost: (drum roll…) €710,000,000.
Behold the soon-to-be-constructed Tankoa Project Bolide Yacht – 603m² of floor space, 500m² of retractable glass, three pools, five VIP suites, a helipad, jacuzzi and multiple lounge areas, all conceived by Italian designer Fabio Mazzeo.
You might need two.
