The latest superyacht concepts
Recently revealed by Oceanco and Pininfarina, Kairos has been designed around an E-Hybrid propulsion system with Oceanco’s NXT sustainability initiative in mind. The concept, which is named after the Greek word for "time" features design and engineering from Lateral Naval Architects. More details about the concept are set to be revealed in the coming months.
This 50 metre motor yacht concept from Bannenberg & Rowell was designed during isolation in collaboration with Dutch design studio Azure Naval Architects. The sub 500GT yacht pairs “freedom of open exterior space and the sense of security and private wellbeing" and features a flush swimming pool and storage for a nine-metre tender.
This showstopping superyacht concept from Gresham Yacht Design named Emir features opulent luxury in the form of a double-height main saloon. Described by the studio as a “ballroom”, the saloon features high ceilings and a walk-around balcony. With full height angled windows, it gives unspoilt panoramic ocean views. Exterior features include a helipad with direct access to the owner’s deck and balconies that lead off from the saloon.
Pure and simplistic, the Pebble motor yacht concept from Dutch design studio Van Geest Design features an uncluttered design for maximum impact. The design is inspired by the rounded shapes of pebbles found by studio co-founder Pieter van Geest on holidays around the world. With features including a closed transom, large fore and aft overhangs and multiple swimming pools, this yacht concept marries classic design and luxury to offer the “ultimate retreat”, the studio said.
