Dutch shipyard Feadship has revealed another concept from its vaults codenamed Project 3099.
Hailed as one of the yard's "most futuristic design templates yet", the project features a distinctive exterior with an "abundance of shapes of curves" and a "conspicuous amounts of glass".
The 90 metre project was revealed in the latest episode of the shipyard's Feadship Unveils series where designers and builders sit down and discuss some of the coolest projects in Feadship's back pocket.
Project 3099 was designed for a client from the Middle East who was looking for something "pretty outrageous", said Henk de Vries, CEO of Feadship. The concept takes the bow from the shipyard's 72 metre Predator for its wave-piercing performance and aggressive appearance, with all exterior lines pointing forward, explains Feadship's head of design, Tanno Weeda.
With an emphasis on the joys of the great outdoors, the design features vast amounts of glass offering outstanding sea views from the interior, with large open spaces aft for dining and lounging, as well as extensive dive facilities at the stern. Following the completion of Venus in 2013, the heavy use of glass was familiar territory for Feadship.
While the design never came to fruition, de Vries and Weeda discussed the possibility of adding a moon pool to the centre of the design.
