Nick Mezas reveals 69m yacht concept Project Smooth

Nick Mezas reveals 69m yacht concept Project Smooth

Dutch superyacht designer Nick Mezas has revealed his latest concept — a 69 metre motor yacht called Project Smooth.

Based on the fast displacement hull form developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, this tri-deck yacht would feature a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure.

On board accommodation is for ten guests split across five cabins, including a main deck owner’s cabin, as well as two doubles and two twin cabins below decks.

The crew quarters would be situated in the bow with accommodation for 14 people, while the upper deck captain’s cabin would be conveniently located just aft of the wheelhouse.

Key features include an aft deck pool, which sits just above the superyacht beach club, and the vast sundeck, complete with cocktail bar and spa pool. A broad 12.4 metre beam allows for palatial interiors totalling in excess of 1,500GT, although no interior renderings have been released as yet.

Power would come from a twin-screw diesel powertrain for a top speed of more than 20 knots and a maximum range of at least 2,000 nautical miles at 14 knots. The foredeck garage allows Project Smooth to carry multiple tenders measuring up to eight metres, and a fin stabilisation system would ensure a smooth cruising experience.

Mezas adds that Project Smooth could be fitted with an optional hybrid propulsion system and the entire design could be built to LY3 standards.

Other projects currently under development at the Den Haag-based studio include a 74 metre concept that has been developed for the renowned Amels yard.
