ER Yacht Design Reveals 61-Metre Sport Yacht Concept
by Miranda Blazeby
Canadian studio ER Yacht Design has presented a 61-metre sport superyacht concept.
Named Shotel, the “fast and striking” superyacht design has been developed as part of the studio’s “Gotham” design line of sporty yachts.
Described as “ultra-modern” by the studio, Shotel features “aggressive sporty lines” with an “artistically sculptured hull and superstructure surfaces.”
Built in aluminium and carbon fibre, Shotel has large and open aft deck areas with fold-down hull bulwarks, which reveal a large swim platform and beach club.
The aft main deck meanwhile is integrated with the cockpit deck, which includes a spacious saloon and dining area inside the main deck superstructure.
The 780GT interior layout has accommodation for a total of 14 guests comprising six double guest cabins on the lower deck and a full beam owner’s suite on the main deck forward. The sky lounge sits on the upper deck alongside the pilothouse and captain’s cabin.
The eight-metre tender, rescue RIB and jet skis are stored on the bow deck, which also features double launching cranes.
Shotel will have a top speed of 24 knots and cruising speed of 18 knots for a range of 3800 nautical miles.
It comes after the Canadian firm revealed a 65-metre go-anywhere expedition modular concept named Super Expedition.
