Turkish yacht designer Aras Kazar has revealed the latest superyacht concept from his design portfolio. Named after 'Wakíŋyaŋ', the Lakota word for 'thunder', the 130-metre trimaran is described as a "thunderbird" on water.
The concept features futuristic and minimalist lines that, from above, strike a bird-like silhouette.
Full-height tempered glass wraps each deck and allows natural light to fill the interior from all angles, with sculptural wave-like designs shielding the open main deck aft from the elements. Inside spaces include five guest cabins, one master suite, crew cabins and a spa, while outside lies an aft deck pool.
"The interior design follows the soft, gentle, cloudy feeling of the exterior," the designer said. "Wakinyan is designed to make you feel calm and relaxing whether you are enjoying it from inside or just looking at it from outside."
Wakinyan has been loaded with electric and hydrofoil technology, giving her an impressive top speed of 32 knots. Wakinyan is "not one of those boring slow superyachts," the designer added.
Wakinyan is the latest project from Aras Kazar, who specialises in "minimalist, futuristic and sleek" designs, and has a portfolio of superyacht concepts including Ono, Noy, Nave Nera and Moto.
