Francesco Struglia Design reveals 61m asymmetrical yacht with a greenhouse

13 February 2023 • Written by Brooke Murphy

Italian studio Francesco Struglia Design has penned designs for a 61-metre asymmetrical yacht.

Citing a “freethinking approach” and “intensive use of virtual reality,” as inspiration, the vessel features diagonal naval architecture across its metallic blue hull and multi-deck layout. Glazing sweeps forward amidships to down towards the bow to create a glasshouse feature concluded by a pool and acting as the "green lung of the yacht."

The greenhouse has a height of 4.7 metres to allow for large arbours to thrive onboard. The space is a hub for all entertainment and features a trim of cream and grey marble. An automatic sunroof is also being considered.

The yacht has an estimated volume of 1,000 GT and a beam of 10.4 metres. The experimental superstructure is planned with teak decks, an enclosed saloon on the upper deck and raised wheelhouse. 

Guests can head through sliding glass doors to an expansive living space overlooking the diamond-shaped pool on the foredeck. The owner’s cabin will also be positioned above with a private deck providing expansive ocean views. 

Other accommodation on board is projected to cater for 12 guests and 10 crew with cabins to be located on the main deck. Elsewhere on the main deck will be an entertainment lounge, adjacent to the spa area with access to the beach club. The area is complimented by a cream U-shaped lounge in the bow.

Francesco Struglia Design Studio are a previous winner of the Boat International World Superyacht Awards, where they took home the category of exterior designer for their 37-metre Benetti Motopanfilo Koju in 2022. The studio has been a “pioneer in the use of virtual reality in nautical design,” adopting the technology to create its latest models.
