2 June 2021• Written by Tom McGhie

A 160 metre extreme superyacht concept complete with a fully enclosed hangar large enough to hold 10 helicopters has been revealed by US designer Steve Kozloff.

Named Galleon, the concept is a “sailing cruise ship” and is large enough to accommodate 200 guests inside 20 private residences. Alternatively, the vessel can be used as a dedicated sailing yacht for one owner.

Key features include a steel, ice classed hull and aluminium superstructure, massive 21,766GT interior and hybrid diesel electric propulsion for a top speed of 18.4 knots and globe-trotting range of 10,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.

Equipped for adventure, Galleon includes four full beam garages to hold six speed boat tenders, four U-Boat Worx NEMO submarines, six RIB tenders and 21 personal watercrafts.

The massive 418sqm fully enclosed hangar holds 10 helicopters, as well as a dedicated maintenance facility. Leisure facilities have also been factored into the design, with Galleon boasting two swimming pools and an indoor sports centre with a full-sized basketball court, tennis court and four handball courts.

Serviced by a crew of 150, Galleon is also designed for safety, with 12 free-fall lifeboats that can each hold 30 people each.

It comes after Kozloff revealed a nine-decked expedition superyacht concept and a scientific ship named Arctic Owl
