Fincantieri teams up with Hot Lab for 113m Ganimede concept
by Chris Jefferies
Announced earlier this month at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, this concept draws inspiration from its mythological namesake with zoomorphic forms that evoke the head of an eagle, most notably the beak-shaped bow.
Star features include a plethora of superyacht spa pools — two on the foredeck reserved for the owner, one on the upper deck and another in the 20 metre long beach club that is fed by a waterfall.
Superyacht tenders and toys were also a key consideration in the development of the Ganimede concept, with a foredeck helipad and amidships storage space for four Jet Skis and three tenders measuring up to 11 metres.
Another key inspiration for the designers was the Art Deco period and this can be seen in the detail of the spiral staircase that leads from the superyacht beach club up to the main deck aft, where five glazed floor panels emphasise the strong connection between these areas.
Accommodation is for up to 14 guests split between seven cabins including an upper-deck master suite, complete with its own lounge and full-height windows. The remaining guest cabins are located on the main deck, leaving the lower deck free for crew accommodation and stores.
