UK studio Dixon Yacht Design has revealed a 70.6-metre superyacht concept called Juno JR. An evolution of the studio's 106-metre Juno, this concept intends to "harmonise the best of motor yacht and sailing yacht design" in a more compact package.
Geared toward the "environmentally conscious owner", Juno JR is equipped with twin Southern Spars Dyna rigs for efficient and easy sail operations. All design, including naval architecture, has been completed in-house.
Accommodation includes a full-width owners' cabin, located amidships, and four main deck guest cabins.
Juno JR revolves around an inside-outside concept with a large, flexible aft deck for entertaining. While full details are yet to be disclosed, exterior renderings reveal a sundeck Jacuzzi, an al fresco, 12-person dining area, two L-shaped settees and swimming pool flanked by loungers – all with uninhibited views off the stern, thanks to low-profile bulwarks and railings. A multi-articulating swim platform allows for easy water access. Juno JR also has plenty of storage, stowing two eight-metre tenders within garages and an additional seven-metre crew tender beneath the foredeck.
The ship's engine room is located amidship and can be set up with serial or parallel hybrid propulsion. Solar panels have been integrated into the flybridge, with the two propellers acting as energy recovery turbines that generate electricity while the vessel is sailing.
This superyacht is the middle child of the "Juno family", in between the 106-metre Juno and the 33-metre Mini Juno.Read More/Dixon Yacht Design presents 33m DynaRig concept Mini Juno
