Radical 77m concept Swell revealed

12 December 2022 • Written by Brooke Murphy

M51 Concepts have released designs for a radical 77 metre superyacht concept named Swell.

Head designer at M51 Concepts, Anthony Glasson, is responsible for the yacht's contemporary design, which features a penthouse-style interior atrium and open-plan layout, thoughtfully arranged to allow a fluid connection between interior spaces. The yacht's profile has also been envisioned with a distinctive "swell" motif inspired by the motion of a wave.

On the interior, the yacht's design aims to bring the outside world in. Curving lines, reminiscent of ocean waves, feature throughout, alongside blue tones and large glass windows which draw the eye to the horizon. Minimalist interior themes ensure the surroundings can be the focal point onboard.

A large entertainment area is enveloped in floor-to-ceiling multi-level glazing — formal dining, expansive crescent lounges and a circular bar will ensure this is the hub for all guests. A winding polished metal staircase ascends past a unique double-deck jellyfish aquarium. 

Swell offers accommodation for 12 guests across eight equally sized cabins with four on the main and lower deck respectively. All of them can be adapted to cater to various sleeping arrangements. Guests will be able to make use of a gym, wellness centre, and swimming pool as well as water sports toys, tenders and jet skis in a full-beam garage.

A full-sized al fresco dining space is envisioned on the upper deck with plenty of room for all guests. Meanwhile, there is a Jacuzzi on the aft, which is joined by sun pads and sun loungers.

The concept is envisioned as a hybrid with a diesel-electric system combining a single main engine and three electrical generators.

Glasson, who has considerable experience working as an engineer in the superyacht industry, has said M51 Concepts strives to create “modern, stylish, and functional yacht designs.” The decision to include equally sized cabins and exclude a designated master suite was a conscious one reflecting the changing priorities of the superyacht industry and its audience.
