Giorgio Pidalà reveals 68m superyacht concept meant to inspire “space exploration”

1 May 2024 • Written by Edie Sudlow

Italian designer Giorgio Pidalà has shared his first superyacht concept with BOAT International, the 67.5-metre Fluctus. Derived from the Latin word for ‘wave’, Fluctus’ futuristic design is meant to "evoke space exploration" while also promoting CO₂ reduction in superyacht design. 

Standout features include 190 square metres of solar panels, positioned predominantly across the bow hardtop, a textured staircase centrepiece and a dedicated owner's deck.

Pidalà added that "all these [design] aspects come together through the concept of aerodynamics" and that Fluctus has been designed to "maximise connection with the surrounding environment".

Accommodation is up for up 10 guests, assisted by 17 crew. This includes a dedicated owner’s deck with two pools, a walk-in closet and a lounge and bar area. The design also features four guest cabins positioned longitudinally for a direct, immersive sea view from every room.

Fluctus’ futuristic design favours open, continuous spaces, achieved through the removal of partition lobbies. The central staircase, in particular, acts as a "fulcrum" for optimal guest movement as well as managing air exchange and artificial cooling between the interior and exterior. Other leisure highlights include a yoga and fitness area on the main deck, alongside a dedicated workspace and a large seating area.

The lower deck features another swimming pool,  a bar, and sunloungers. A steam room, hydrotherapy space and video game room can also be found indoors. The unconventional overhangs work to shelter the deck spaces against the sun and minimise interior overheating. Meanwhile, the side loading tender garage has been installed on the lower deck aft with capacity for two Jet Skis and one tender.

Fluctus has also been designed with radar, AIS, echo sounders, and cameras. This technology would be combined with AI and augmented reality to “offer the crew and guests a detailed understanding of their environment”.
