Pendennis teams up with Ingemansson for Arctic Sun concept
by Chris Jefferies
Designer Dennis Ingemansson has revealed his latest concept yacht, Arctic Sun, which was created in collaboration with British yard Pendennis.
Measuring 50 metres LOA, Arctic Sun would be built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, creating a total interior volume of 750GT. Ingemansson adds that the sculptured exterior styling is inspired by the automotive industry.
Arctic Sun’s accommodation is for ten guests split across five cabins, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people.
Despite its name, this explorer yacht concept is equally well suited for tropical destinations as well as icy climates, since the aft helideck can easily be converted into a superyacht sundeck that boasts spectacular 360-degree views out to sea.
On board, guests would be able to relax in the superyacht spa, complete with massage room and sauna, or work up a sweat in the gymnasium. Meanwhile, the on-board dive centre would feature a decompression chamber and the garage would be able to hold a pair of tenders and six Jet Skis.
As with many of Ingemansson’s previous designs, minimising the yacht’s impact on the environment is a key theme — Arctic Sun has been designed to be as aerodynamic and fuel efficient as possible, while the optional fitment of 80 square metres of solar cells can reduce the need to burn diesel.
Power would come from a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M70 engines for a top speed of 19 knots and a maximum range of 5,750 nautical miles at Arctic Sun’s optimal cruising speed of 12 knots.
