Aguila Design presents a 41m ray-shaped superyacht concept

Aguila Design presents a 41m ray-shaped superyacht concept

Spanish company Aguila Design has released images of its perplexing new motor yacht concept, which is 41m long – and 30m wide.

The company states that Xi boasts ‘unknown navigation behaviour, comfort, safety, stability, steer ability, manoeuvrability and unusual high speeds’.

Details of Xi’s mechanics have not been specified, but features include two air propellers on the stern and retractable hydrofoils intended to make it easier to moor the ray-shaped yacht in a marina.

The yacht’s only windows are in the huge cockpit, and consist of a glass roof that when folded away partially transforms the space into a sundeck.

The yacht is the product of thirty years of research into energy by Jan Gielens, a Spanish industrial designer, and is designed to possess excellent aero- and hydro-dynamic properties. Gielens plans to sell the technology it incorporates rather than taking the concept any further.
