Coquine![design] reveals 68m explorer yacht concept Passepartout

11 January 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

coquine![design] has revealed a 68-metre explorer concept called Passepartout. The yacht is designed with a narrow hull (to allow for a smooth ride under all weather conditions) and can be built entirely in aluminium or with a steel hull.

"I call it Passepartout after the trusty companion of Phileas Fogg," said Christian Leyk of coquine![design]. "[Though] circumnavigating the world in 80 days seems a bit rushed when there's so much to discover off the beaten track." 

He added that the design was meant to be "modern, but not flashy" and that, depending on the colour proposal the future owner chooses, Passepartout "might even fly under the radar and not be immediately recognised as a luxury yacht." Wide wing stations allow for ease of manoeuvre, while the folding shutter covering the side decks provides extra protection while travelling (and added shade when opened).

Found on the main deck forward, the owner's cabin would feature a small garden with folding balconies. The VIP cabin is situated on the upper deck. Other highlights include Passepartout's helipad and the tender garage, which features "a clever launching mechanism for the working tender over the bow".

Passepartout is envisioned as a diesel-electric vessel, fitted with larger battery banks to cruise distances in total silence.

coquine![design] last shared a 32-metre, open yacht concept with BOAT International, designed in collaboration with Italian shipyard Tureddi.
