New 75m Focus yacht concept puts the spotlight on entertainment

New 75m Focus yacht concept puts the spotlight on entertainment

The new 75 metre superyacht concept from designer Nick Mezas puts a priority on entertainment. Working in collaboration with Van Oossanen Naval Architects, the yacht features the architect’s Fast Displacement Hull Form design with integrated Hull Vane.

A prospective client approached Nick Mezas Yacht Design and Van Oossanen Naval Architects with a brief for a fast 70 metre yacht design that blended commercial support vessel capabilities and a very flexible layout, and they invited the designers to “think outside the box.”

The result is the 75 metre Focus yacht concept, which features radical explorer yacht styling, the innovative but proven Fast Displacement Hull Form and a hugely flexible layout that is focused on entertaining.

“My favourite features are the trapezoidal space in the superstructure amidships with her two-storey 150 square metre salon and the event hub concept,” Nick Mezas told Boat International.

When the client was unable to take the build process further the designers stayed with the concept and developed it further, creating a multipurpose entertainment hub. The designers say it can be used for business meetings, weddings, conferences, dance parties or concerts – and beyond.

“Focus offers a layout and capacity for one large event spread over three different locations, or it can facilitate a number of separate events at the same time,” Nick Mezas said.

The upper deck features a private owner’s and VIP guest escape with four guest staterooms. This deck can also host meetings, or owners and guests can enjoy the superyacht’s pool or watch movies in the yacht’s cinema.

With the Van Oossanen-designed Fast Displacement Hull Form with Hull Vane and powered by twin MTU 20V 4000 M73L, the Focus yacht would reach a top speed of 23.5 knots and have a range of 5,000 nautical miles cruising at 15 knots. The Hull Vane is designed to lessen pitching a rolling, providing supreme comfort while at sea.
