Nick Stark Design has revealed plans for a new 64 metre superyacht concept, which puts ocean views at the heart of the design.
Named Project Grace, the designer has focused on how the interior can maximise views for guests on board. "It's easy to forget that owners experience the yacht from the inside out – a stunning silhouette is a thing of beauty, but for most of your time on board you will be looking out, not in. Attention to glazing detail is crucial,” explained Nick Stark, the yacht's naval architect and stylist.
This mantra can be seen most clearly in the main saloon on the main deck, which has floor-to ceiling glass for panoramic views while underway.
As well as offering light and views Project Grace also focuses on mixing social and private spaces. There is a dedicated party space on the main deck and a custom sound, DJ and integrated lighting system could be incorporated throughout. Elsewhere a private sundeck, with a Jacuzzi, loungers and a bar will provide a quieter space.
The tri-deck yacht would be able to accommodate up to 12 guests. There are two full-beam VIP suites on the main deck and a separate owner’s suite on the upper deck.
Another key part to Stark’s design is how the interior and exterior areas connect. On the main deck the wellness and pool area lead down to the beach club, for direct access to the sea.
“We anticipate an aluminium structure ideal for weight and performance,” said Stark of the proposed construction materials. “Although there’s an argument for a steel hull with an aluminium superstructure if that plays to the client’s preference.”
This is the second concept to come from the Australian design studio recently after it presented 94 metre Project Crystal earlier this year.
