Dixon Yacht Design has presented a new 70 metre sailing yacht concept named Project NewDawn.
The “game changing” concept is built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and features a Falcon Rig to “maximise performance and minimise effort.”
Designed inside and outside by Dixon Yacht Design, the yacht “shares many characteristics with motor yachts”, including a large glazed deck saloon on the main deck facing aft to the swimming pool.
Elsewhere, a cinema and spa, complete with a sauna and gym, sit on the lower deck while a formal saloon, inside/outside dining area and lounging space are located on the upper deck.
Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in four guest staterooms and one full beam owner’s cabin, which includes its own private balconies. The crew quarters meanwhile features eight crew cabins.
The tender platform has direct access to the main deck lobby and guests can choose to travel in either a seven-metre limousine tender or seven-metre sports tender. The yacht also has storage for a six-metre crew tender.
Project NewDawn features various “impressive technical systems”, the studio said, including a hybrid propulsion system that optimises energy on board. Elsewhere, the energy recovery system uses the propulsion propellers to generate electricity while the yacht is sailing.
