Fincantieri teams up with Van Geest Design on 106m 'disappearing' yacht

Fincantieri teams up with Van Geest Design on 106m 'disappearing' yacht

Italian yard Fincantieri Yachts has revealed its latest concept; a 106 metre motor yacht clad in reflective glass.

Designed by Van Geest Design, the six-decked Mirage features a 15.2 metre beam, draught of 4.25 metres and total GT of 4,200.

Designed by Pieter Van Geest and Tracey Canavaggio, who undertook extensive research on glass specifications and capabilities, Mirage is clad in glass with visual effects.

The result is a yacht, which “disappears between water and sky” and “blends into the horizon”, according to the designers.

“Unfolding itself, Mirage tells a story of time, reflecting the day passing by on a coloured reflective surface offering a peaceful gaze on the travelled distances,” the design studio said.

Key features include a forward “fun area” on the top deck equipped with a hot tub, bean bags and unfolding outdoor cinema, which sit alongside a helicopter landing platform.

The yacht is clad in reflective glass that will enable it to "disappear between water and sky", according to the designer

Guest circulation onboard is through a central core, which includes a glass corridor leading through the engine room to a full beam spa where all areas are fitted with “electric privacy glass.”

Accommodation will be for 14 guests across seven cabins and a staff of 29 across 17 crew cabins.

The yacht also features a closed transom, to ensure boarding is by inviation only, and can accommodate a tender measuring a maximum of 10.5 metres.

Fitted with a pair of abt. 3440kW engines, Mirage will have a top speed of 19 knots.
