Isaac Burrough and Lateral Present "Electric-Diesel" Superyacht Concept Inception

Isaac Burrough and Lateral Present "Electric-Diesel" Superyacht Concept Inception

Amsterdam studio Isaac Burrough Design has teamed up with Lateral Naval Architects to present its latest superyacht concept named Inception.

The 68.5 metre project is equipped with Lateral’s E-Hybrid system. Batteries are the primary power source on board and can power both hotel energy needs and propulsion. The yacht is also equipped with diesel generators for higher speed propulsion and battery recharging.

The result suggests the “next step beyond hybrid is perhaps not diesel electric, but rather electric diesel,” the design team said.

Designed as a technical platform rather than a complete design, Inception “rethinks the entire paradigm of a typical yacht layout,” Burrough said.

“The genesis for this project came from two ideas: creating a greater connection between guests and the ocean, and crafting a luxury experience around a single-level living space,” he added.

This sees the entire lower deck dedicated to luxury spaces, such as a wellness area, reading lounge and submarine lounge, which allows guests to enjoy the ocean from both above and below the surface. The aft portion of the yacht opens into one large open plan area using fold down terraces on all sides.

Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests, with four guest cabins sitting on the lower deck. Another double sits on the main deck while the owner’s suite is situated over two levels; the lower deck and main deck.

The owner's suite features full height glass windows and extendable terraces, giving the owner elevated views and private access to the water.

Traditionally located on the lower deck, the crew area is found instead on the main deck and comprises eight crew cabins, the galley, a crew mess and lounge, as well as plentiful storage.

Elsewhere, the yacht has a massive 1750GT, top speed of 16 knots and range of 3750 miles.

Burrough added that the design featured no use of teak or other rare woods for environmental reasons. “This not only protects these species of trees but also enhances Inception’s futuristic aesthetic.”
