Nauta Design reveals 78m concept Slipstream
by Miranda Blazeby
Nauta Design has revealed a new 78 metre superyacht concept named Slipstream.
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Slipstream’s design is characteristic of the studio, with light-filled interiors, close contact to the water and a strong outside/ inside connection.
The “clean and uncluttered exterior design” also features extensive glass.
One standout feature is the beach club, which Nauta has dubbed “the island”. Fold down bulwarks and walkways expand the space into a 280 square metre terrace.
Alongside the bar and underwater viewing lounge, the beach club also includes a sea water swimming pool integrated into the stern platform. When not in use, the pool’s teak bottom closes flush with the deck.
Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests, with the upper deck dedicated solely to the owners' accommodation. The owners' deck includes direct access to the helipad and private foredeck with a Jacuzzi pool and “infinity nest”. The master suite also features a king-size bed, private saloon and full-height glass windows.
The crew accommodation meanwhile allows for a staff of 23.
Slipsteam has various storage facilities for toys and tenders, including a touch and go helipad, space for a 10-metre limousine tender, a nine metre RIB, two rescue tenders and a range of toys including Jetskis, Seabobs, kayaks, bikes, quadbikes, kite surfs and windsurfs.
Power will come from a hybrid diesel-electric engine, for a top speed of 17 knots and range of over 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
