Named Nautilus 650, the yacht is an explorer with  “peculiarities and characteristics very different from classic pleasure boats” the studio said. From the Caribbean to Cape Horn in any weather, this concept is designed to conquer them all.

Key numbers include a beam of 14.35 metres and a draft of 3.5 metres, while special attention has been paid to bow geometries and electric pods certified to operate in extreme conditions to ensure versatility of use in any corner of the world.

The concept is designed with low environmental impact, and features include low-emission generators and anti-UV glass windows. Propulsion systems are also designed to operate correctly in low temperatures.

Functional space has been integrated into her design to ensure there is a workshop and maintenance area and enough room to carry spare parts on board for contingency measures. There are also two rescue vehicles, able to carry 36 people each to starboard of the helicopter hangar.

Accommodation on board is designed for a total of 12 guests across six guest spaces, comprising one master and five VIP cabins. Elsewhere there is space for 18 crew members, allowing for the 40 days capacity of autonomy to be comfortably realised. Social areas include bars, living and dining areas on the multiple decks, all linked by central staircases.

Across a gross tonnage of 2000 GT, Nautilus 650 would have a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots, powered by her twin 1500kw engines.
