2 November 2021• Written by Tom McGhie

Superyacht design studio Rodriguez Design has revealed a 73 metre full-displacement superyacht concept named Palmilla.

Built with a steel and aluminium superstructure and spread across five decks, the yacht’s design is a “tale of two stories”, featuring a combination of round surfaces at the bow and sharper ones at the stern.

Speaking about the concept, designer Josh Rodriguez said: “We like our clients to see it change as they move around the yacht. The yacht should feel alive and move with the guests.”

The main deck hosts an aft “social area”, featuring a swimming pool with sun pads and a bar. Forward are two VIP cabins, the main saloon and a separate dining area.

The upper deck is accessed by a hidden staircase amidships and features a large lounging area alongside a 14 person al fresco dining table. From here, wide external corridors lead up to the touch-and-go helipad big enough for an Airbus ACH 145 helicopter on the bow.

The owner’s deck sits above and features a private aft deck pool. Speaking about this level, Rodriguez said: “We wanted to make this deck as a fortress of solitude. With the current COVID situation, it gives the owner to be completely isolated, acting as an apartment inside of the yacht itself.”

Elsewhere, the sun deck features a Jacuzzi and gym equipment aft. Palmilla’s design makes full use of its 13.3 metre beam and comfortably sleeps 14 in seven cabins.

Powered by twin MTU 16V 4000 M63L diesel engines, Palmilla has a top speed of 18 knots and is capable of a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
