Spanish yacht design studio Daroca Design has partnered with maritime flooring specialist Bolidt to develop Waves, a 93-metre superyacht concept due to be presented at this year's Monaco Yacht Show.
Upon first glance, the yacht exhibits a minimalist profile with long, uninterrupted lines designed to blend "seamlessly with the surrounding landscape", according to the firm. A pale blue hull helps cement its connection to the water, and is set against a jet black superstructure with soft, upward curving decks that draw the eye along the height of the vessel.
Central to the design, however, is the innovative use of Bolidt's synthetic decking as a sustainable alternative to traditional materials. The new material is said to offer "unlimited design possibilities" but for this concept, Bolidt has created two distinct flooring patterns that it hopes will showcase the product's adaptability "in even the most demanding design scenarios".
The first design features a geometric pattern for a touch of modernity, whereas the second design takes a more organic approach. In the latter case, flowing lines can be placed along the exterior deck spaces in order to "mimic the gentle curves of nature itself".
"What sets this collaboration apart is not just the beauty of the designs but the transformative power they hold for the yacht industry," Daroca Design said in a statement. "With the ingenious use of Bolidt materials, Daroca Design and Bolidt have elevated deck covering to an art form, redefining how luxury yachts interact with their surroundings."
An expansive pool on the main deck aft forms the central gathering area on board, complete with a waterfall descending from the deck above, ample lounge space and a sit-up bar. Other features include a helicopter landing pad on the bow, an elegant twin staircase leading up from the swim platform and three additional pools scattered throughout the vessel.
The introduction of Waves follows Daroca Design's previous 83-metre superyacht concept, Mirage, which was unveiled earlier this year in collaboration with Lateral Naval Architects.Read More/Daroca Design and Lateral Naval Architects reveal 83m superyacht concept Mirage
