Hydro Tec goes supersize with 100m Crossbow concept

Italian design and naval architecture studio Hydro Tec has revealed its largest superyacht concept to date, the 100 metre Crossbow.

Based on an aluminium hull and superstructure, this sleek design has a beam of just 12.5 metres — more than a metre less than average for this size bracket. What’s more, the draught has been kept to just 3.5 metres to ensure Crossbow can reach cruising grounds that would normally be off-limits for such monumental yachts.

The arrow-like design is also reflected in the estimated performance figures — Hydro Tec quotes a top speed of 25 knots when a pair of MTU 16V 4000 M93L engines are fitted. To achieve this, various weight reduction measures have been taken, including making the fixed deck furniture as light as possible.

Perhaps the most unconventional aspect of this design is the location of the superyacht wheelhouse, which has been moved to the uppermost deck, leaving room for a double-height forward-facing atrium on the main deck.

Tender and toy storage has been a key priority and this can be seen in the foredeck helipad with hangar beneath and the capacious garage, which can house a pair of 9.5 metre tenders and four Jet Skis amidships.

Crossbow’s star features include an enormous superyacht beach club, which measures 135 square metres, an upper deck infinity pool, main deck gymnasium and piano lounge, and a separate owner’s deck with private Jacuzzi, cinema, lounge and study.

Accommodation is for up to 16 guests split between eight double cabins, while the lower deck crew quarters allows for a staff of up to 32 people.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian studio include the 80 metre Columbus Classic, which is being built by the Palumbo Group and is due for delivery before the end of the year.
