Fincantieri teams up with Hot Lab for 113m Ganimede concept

2017-11-16By Chris Jefferies

Italian yard Fincantieri has released full details of its latest yacht concept, the 113 metre Ganimede, which was developed in collaboration with Milan-based studio Hot Lab.

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.

Ganimede would be one of the world's largest yachts if built

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.

Other superyacht projects under development at the Italian yard include the 90 metre concept Linea, which was designed by British studio Claydon Reeves.
