Barracuda Yacht Design Reveals 62 Metre "Military Inspired" Superyacht Concept
by Miranda Blazeby
Barracuda Yacht Design has revealed a 62 metre military-inspired motor yacht concept.
Featuring naval architecture and exterior design penned in-house, the yacht sports “OCD” straight lines, "right angles and symmetry".
Spread out across five decks with an 11.2 metre beam, the yacht is focused on “strength, a sense of purpose and confidence”.
The studio described the design as “a yacht with attitude” and revealed “the objective was to make the best use of the space available”, resulting in an interior volume of 1140GT.
Key features include a large fixed swim platform and swimming pool aft, which forms part of the yacht’s fully serviced wellness centre, complete with a sauna and hairdressing salon.
A ‘convertible’ dining area for 12 can be found in the main saloon, with side windows that can be completely lowered for an al fresco eating experience. With the windows lowered, this space resembles the “patio of a contemporary-designed luxury villa” the studio said.
Accommodation on board is for a maximum of 14 guests and 18 crew. The captain’s cabin sits behind the bridge while a “lavish” VIP can be found on the upper deck, complete with its own private, enclosed terrace.
The dedicated owner’s deck is located above the upper deck and features 360 degree views and its own lounge and aft terrace.
Power comes from two 1800HP engines for a top speed of 16 knots, cruising speed of 14 knots and economical speed of 11 knots for a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
