Nauta Design reveals 75m "ready to build" explorer yacht concept

12 April 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Nauta Design has revealed a new, 74.8-metre explorer yacht concept known as the Nauta XP75.

Based on a client brief, the Nauta XP75 comes with a "200-page specification document", according to the Milan-based studio, who consider it a "mature project ready to start building". 

"A key word when we were designing the XP75 was flexibility," explained designer Martino Majno. "An Ice Class yacht designed to operate in temperatures from -20 °C to 40°C, she is just as at home in the Arctic as in the Caribbean."

Accommodation is for 12 guests and 24 crew, with the upper deck dedicated to the owner. A forward-facing cabin with an island bed benefits from 180-degree views, side decks and a hot tub on the private deck forward. The telescopic mast and covered mooring deck means that this foredeck can also double as a touch-and-go helipad when the yacht is at anchor. Elsewhere, the skylounge features a projector for use as a cinema room, while the aft deck is set up for 12-person, al fresco dining.

The main deck is arranged around the swimming pool, which itself has a base that can be raised so the aft deck can serve as a helipad. Further forward and protected by a sunroof that slides out of the deckhead is a sunken seating area, a bar, DJ console and an open-air cinema. Inside, the main saloon and dining room are bright and airy, flanked by three-metre-high windows, with an aquarium as the area's conversation starter.

Meanwhile, the beach club is arranged with its own sauna, beauty salon and Hammam. Three fold-down platforms increase the overall area to 185 square metres. The lower deck has also been designed with a sunken bar (found underneath the pool) and a 150-square-metre garage with shell doors. The garage has capacity for three tenders, including a mini submarine and a 9.5-metre limo tender, as well as various water toys.

The 65-square-metre sundeck houses the superyacht's final pool, with a waterfall feature, sunpads and cosy, corner seating shaded by umbrellas. This deck is "virtually invisible when the yacht is viewed in profile", guided by the Italian studio's "less is more" design philosophy. To the same end, all exterior stairways between decks are integrated into the superstructure so as not to "interrupt the purity of the yacht’s profile".

Other leisure highlights include the bridge deck, which features a glass-walled gymnasium and massage room. This deck is also designed for maximum visibility in arctic conditions, thanks to a walk-around integrated Kongsberg console and a Portuguese bridge.

On the technical side, Nauta Design claims that in-depth studies have been carried out to ensure efficiency and reduced fuel consumption. Special double glazing would be employed to reduce heat transfer and the engine cooling water would be recycled.

The superyacht has a 12.8 metre beam

The Nauta XP75 could be fitted with diesel-electric or hybrid propulsion with batteries, with space also having been set aside for methanol tanks.

Nauta Design last shared Milano with BOAT International, a 70-metre superyacht concept in collaboration with Tankoa Yachts.
