Dasha Moranova Designs unveils 83m Senses wellness project

26 April 2023 • Written by Gemma Harris

Dutch design studio Dasha Moranova Designs has introduced a new superyacht spa project called Senses, designed for use on an 83-metre superyacht.

The “sensory holistic design approach” is in collaboration with Lateral Naval Architects' innovative Free From Bulkheads (FFB) platform, a new platform that "challenges traditional superyacht architecture enabling watertight bulkheads to terminate at the lower deck". According to the firm, the result is "an unconstrained lower deck adjacent to the waterline, giving the potential for greater design innovation in layout and ultimately an elevated user experience."

The lack of bulkheads creates additional space, which is utilised and combined for near 360-degree ocean views – enjoyed from seats with an integrated massage system - that showcases a fluid transition between the indoors and outdoors. 

Senses encapsulates a “high-tech and high-touch approach” with the latest technologies harnessed throughout, such as the meditation pod with an array of sound healing systems. These technologies are concealed within the design, with multiple panels and consoles to be revealed when guests require. 

A guest's wellness journey can continue throughout with multiple offerings. The “healing garden” features various amenities from hot to cold, with saunas, steam rooms, solar massages and a cryotherapy capsule. To round off the relaxation, an additional standout feature is the steam shower, complete with a large, natural salt rock.

The space also plays host to an extensive gym equipped with smart AI assistants to guide sessions, with technology from Studio 8ight. Prior to any exercise, a full body scan is on hand for guests while post-workout refreshments are provided at the contemporary-styled juice bar.

Alongside the smart technology used, the interiors have been selected with the environment in mind. 

“This is not just another concept, we would like to thank all parties involved for their technical support, so we assure this can be built tomorrow,” said Dasha Moranova Designs in a statement.

Senses follows the design firm's previous project with Lurssen, the 98-metre Alice yacht concept.
