Phathom Studio Presents 80m Superyacht Concept Phathom-1
by Miranda Blazeby
Fledgling Dutch design studio Phathom has revealed its first concept; an 80 metre motor yacht called Phathom-1.
Key features of the superyacht include extensive full and double height glass for wide reaching views and an extensive main and upper deck interior.
On Phathom, they have focused on shaking up the usual 80 metre platform. Described as possessing “loft-like proportions”, Phathom-1 features guest accommodation spaced apart to ensure privacy, with each cabin equally sized in order to “do away with hierarchy.”
The two-level owner’s apartment features a double height lounge and mezzanine sleep area with an owner’s private terrace and sunk-in pool.
Elsewhere, the aft deck has been transformed into a “pool-side resort” in close proximity to the sea. Focus has also been paid to connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces of the yacht. One example is a vanishing glass partition in the main and upper saloons which, when open, connects each interior space with its exterior deck.
The interior design focuses on incorporating “non-imposing colours” with natural materials and textures.
While little has been revealed of the yacht’s exterior, Hernandez Grijota and Bekeschus described the exterior profile as “sophisticated”, and the concept overall as “brawny, sensual and timeless.”
