Gill Schmid Design reveals 75m Mystique concept
by Chris Jefferies
New York-based studio Gill Schmid Design has released the first details of its latest superyacht concept, the 75 metre Mystique.
Developed in collaboration with proposed German build yard Dörries Yachts, this ice-classed explorer yacht is notable for its high-volumes and flexible use of space. The helideck is the most prominent example of this, as it can be transformed into a basketball court or an outdoor party space when needed.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split across six spacious staterooms, including an owner’s suite with a private outdoor deck. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to 25 people, ensuring that a guest’s every whim is catered for.
Plentiful toy storage areas allow Mystique to carry an Icon aircraft, Triton submersible and a sailing catamaran on the upper deck aft, as well as all the usual Jet Skis and luxury tenders. When all of the kit is unloaded, this area can be converted into a swimming pool, thanks to a retractable floor.
This bold concept was designed around a desire to spend long stretches of time at sea, with the on board 'food lab' offering a farm-to-table dining experience.
Guests will be spoiled for choice when it comes to relaxations spaces, as Mystique boasts a double-height superyacht beach club, multiple Jacuzzis and an on board spa, complete with gymnasium.
The engine installation and performance figures have yet to be disclosed, but this steel-hulled displacement yacht would have a 13.8 metre beam and a maximum draught of 3.8 metres.
