New 45m sailing yacht concept called Oceanaid

New 45m sailing yacht concept called Oceanaid

This stunning 45 metre sailing superyacht concept named Oceanaid is the work of two newly graduated naval architects and a final year architecture student.

Naval architects Harun Kemali and Gürbüz Bilici collaborated with final year architecture student Işık Gören to create the yacht, which they intend to be environmentally friendly, high-tech and fast. Renewable energies such as solar and wind power are the primary power sources on board, while the boat would be fitted with a diesel-electric propulsion system driving two pod drives beneath the hull.

The superyacht has been named *Oceanaid *and the Turkish trio behind the design say she is deliberately a multipurpose boat, with functionality more important than aesthetics. This comes through in practical features such as the placement of the two helm stations, both giving 360 degree views all around. However, as the renderings show, the boat is certainly no ugly duckling, with modern, sleek and minimal lines and an interior boasting large, open spaces ideal for warm-weather life on board. These wide, uncluttered areas are also designed so that the yacht can be used easily by those in wheelchairs. The saloon windows are huge, letting plenty of natural light in to the bar, dining and entertainment areas below decks.

Outside, where the rope pit might be found on other yachts, the guests on *Oceanaid *can relax on deck chairs, while others can enjoy the two extending balconies on both sides of the boat. The foredeck also has a relaxing area, with sunloungers for several guests. A beach club at the stern contains watertoys aplenty and further room on the bathing platform for sun-loungers.

Oceanaid’s range under electric power, at seven knots, is said to be 30 miles and with a 960 square metre sail area, she will offer significant drive under canvas too. Under diesel engine, the 151 ton superyacht will be good for 14 knots, say the designers.
