Guido De Groot reveals 68m SWATH concept Rén
2017-03-18By Chris Jefferies

Dutch studio Giudo De Groot Design has revealed its latest superyacht concept, a 68 metre SWATH called Rén.

Developed in collaboration with Karel Nguyen of the Delft University of Technology, this futuristic design features a notably broad beam of 27 metres.

Rén has been designed with a maximum draught of 7 metres

Nguyen explains that Rén is a concept that was created with a particular owner in mind: “The fictional client is a 34-year-old self-made billionaire, married, and has two children. Having reached a peak in her career, her new goals are to focus more on her children, educating the next generation, and helping society.”

As a result, this multihull superyacht would be suitable for carrying out oceanographic research and helping with disaster relief efforts during typhoon season. To this end, Rén would be equipped with a superyacht office, on-board laboratories, research areas and a touch-and-go helipad.

On board relaxation has also been kept in mind, with a dedicated health deck, beach club and even a superyacht garden.

Accommodation is for up to ten guests and 40 crew. Nguyen adds that Rén would feature a large entertaining area that would allow 40 guests to be hosted for dinner, rising to 100 for an evening drinks reception.

Power would come from a diesel-electric drivetrain, which would be capable of cruising in fully electric mode.

Other projects currently under development at Guido De Groot Design include three new 26-27 metre yachts at the Van Der Valk Shipyard, all of which are due to be launched before the end of the year.
