1 of 6 1/6


With towering glass-wrapped skyscrapers and ultra modern glass-walled houses popping up around the world it is perhaps no surprise that requests for more glass on superyachts are coming thick and fast.

We take a look at some of the designs that have pushed the boundaries when it comes to the use of glass on superyachts.

1. Enigma

Enigma was launched as the iconic Eco in 1991 by Blohm & Voss and was one of the first yachts to use curved glass as a design and structural element.

Espen Øino was a designer on the project, alongside Martin Francis and other young designers, and he said, “We researched the glass for about three years and were convinced we would get a lot of strength from the geometry of the glass, like an egg”.

Blohm & Voss have continued to use curved glass to great effect, most notably on the well-known 119 metre Motor Yacht A, and on 96 metre Palladium
