Recently revealed by fledgling design studio Kyron Design, the 70 metre expedition yacht Nzuri features a futuristic design, with "soft yet strong" lines. Intended for navigation in remote areas, from the polar regions to the Galapagos Islands, Nzuri features a fully equipped exploration equipment room. The yacht would have an estimated maximum speed of 22 knots and range of 4,000 nautical miles if built.


Protean 95

Described as a "no limits" superyacht concept, Protean 95 was penned by Dutch design studio CBSPRO Maritime. Key features include a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and beam of 20 metres. Protean 95 is packed with storage with an inventory that lists numerous day cruising boats, PWCs, lasers, kayaks and even submarines, all of which can be deployed using the two 15 metric ton capacity cranes.



An extending beach club aft is the standout feature on board Opalinski Design House's new 120 metre superyacht concept named Indah. The spacious beach club extends into a huge deck space thanks to rotating transom bulkheads, creating a huge beach terrace at sea level. Described as a “true ocean-going vessel” by the studio, the yacht accommodates a total of 24 guests in 12 cabins inside a massive 5,500 GT interior.


Project Fly

Recently revealed by Dixon Yacht Design, the 37 metre sailing yacht concept Project Fly features a 200GT interior and plenty of outdoor living areas, including an enclosed flybridge and recessed cockpit forward. Accommodation on board is for eight guests including an owner’s stateroom with direct access to the beach terrace and three further guest cabins located aft.



A new COVID-19 inspired shadow vessel concept named Haven has been unveiled by ShadowCAT and Incat Crowther. Described as a “protective layer” to the owner’s mothership, Haven acts  as a buffer between the main yacht and outside world, allowing guests to maintain COVID-secure social bubbles on board. Key features include a hospital and laboratory, allowing the monitoring of all crew on board Haven and the mothership.
