Hot Lab reveals 63 metre Sarp Yachts concept Aouda

Hot Lab reveals 63 metre Sarp Yachts concept Aouda

Italian design studio Hot Lab has revealed its latest concept, a 63 metre called Aouda. Developed for Turkish yard Sarp Yachts, this round-bilge displacement yacht is offered in both classic bow and axe bow versions.

Aouda would be built to ABS and LY3 standards from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, with an estimated construction time of 28 months. Her 11 metre beam allows for a highly spacious interior totalling 1,100GT. The yard adds that the name comes from Princess Aouda, a character in Jules Verne's 1873 novel Around the World in 80 Days.

Accommodation is for 12 guests split between an owner’s cabin, three doubles and two twins, while the crew quarters have been designed for a staff of up to 14 people. Standout features include the main-deck owner’s suite, which boasts direct access to the foredeck and its five metre superyacht spa pool, complete with waterfall feature.

The master cabin would be finished in Sahara Noir marble, gold leaf, striped Delabrè brass and white walnut woodwork. The design also includes loose furniture from Poltrona Frau, Minotti and Foscarini. Meanwhile, in the main deck saloon, Aouda would boast full custom leather upholstery by Foglizzo and a 3D marble feature wall inspired by coral reefs.

As well as the refined interiors, Auoda is notable for its myriad options for al fresco relaxation. The upper deck superyacht helipad doubles up as a large outdoor entertaining space, while the main deck includes a second spa pool. Finally, the superyacht beach club includes a cocktail bar, ideal for enjoying a relaxing sundowner in close proximity to the sea.

Power would come from a pair of 1,500hp CAT 3512C diesel engines for a top speed of 16.5 knots, the total fuel capacity of 110,000 litres would allow for a maximum cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots, and Naiad zero-speed stabilisers would ensure a smooth cruising experience.
