MUB Design goes supersize with 120m superyacht concepts

MUB Design goes supersize with 120m superyacht concepts

Parisian studio MUB Design has released a pair of 120 metre steel and aluminium superyacht concepts called Rorqual and Stratum.

Based on the same hull, these new four-deck designs draw on the natural world for inspiration. The superstructure of Stratum (pictured below) pays tribute to the stratified shape of Japanese rice fields, ocean waves and sandstone canyons.

This veneration of nature continues with the interior, which places a strong emphasis on panoramic views and bringing the outside inside. Key features include a foredeck helipad, an aft deck swimming pool and a superyacht beach club beneath, but the most striking feature is the two outboard superyacht elevators, which would connect the upper four decks.

Accommodation is for up to 30 guests and 43 crewmembers, while a twin 1,957hp MTU 16V2000 M72 engine installation would allow for a top speed of 15 knots.

Meanwhile Rorqual (pictured below) takes after the whale of the same name, balancing a gigantic form with slender curves. The narrow V-shaped superstructure adds a sense of urgency and dynamism, which is reflected in her more sporty top speed of 21 knots, made possible by a quadruple 4,830hp MTU 20V4000 M73L engine set-up.

Moving inside and the décor is a blend of classic and contemporary elements, with felted furniture, walnut woodwork, marble surfaces and copper and brass detailing. A superyacht fireplace adds to the welcoming atmosphere on board.

Al fresco relaxation was another key priority with a raised aft-deck swimming pool, three sundeck spa pools and a DJ booth overlooking the aft deck, which can be converted into a dance floor. Rorqual would offer accommodation for up to 14 guests and 30 crewmembers, ensuring all needs can be catered for.

These latest designs expand the MUB Design portfolio, which also includes the 102 metre Fierce Calibre concept and the 85 metre Moea design.
