Dixon Yacht Design has recently unveiled its new 106.4-metre crossover concept, named Juno. The superyacht is designed to “harmonise the best of motor yacht and sailing yacht design”, sporting a classic sailing profile and propulsion system while still providing the features and amenities expected in a motor yacht of its size.
Juno is equipped with a DynaRig sail system which allows for single-handed control. She uses wind power as her primary means of propulsion, with two electric, energy-recovery turbines further developing the superyacht’s environmentally conscious design.
Accommodation is for up to 20 across four decks, with one deck devoted entirely to the owner. This includes eight guest cabins and a 17.5-metre owner’s cabin. While interior design is at the owner's discretion, preliminary renderings reveal a modern main saloon with low-profile, velvet furniture, marble feature walls and an in-built alcove bar. The saloon also leads aft to a beach bar and eight-metre swimming pool.
Across Juno’s three decks are a host of leisure amenities, including a cinema, sauna, gym and beach club. The open transom, extendable swim platform and side-opening shell doors contribute to the beach club’s sense of space. The super yacht is also envisioned with a tender platform that is directly accessible via the main deck and can store both a 10-metre limousine and a 10-metre sports tender.
Juno will be able to reach 23 knots under sail. This superyacht is the “mother” of Dixon Yacht Design’s crossover range, which encompasses the 33-metre Mini Juno, the 46-metre, sub-500GT Juno GT and the 72-metre Juno JR.Read More/Dixon Yacht Design presents 33m DynaRig concept Mini Juno
