Ricky Smith Designs presents 80m superyacht design Epoch

Ricky Smith Designs presents 80m superyacht design Epoch

Ricky Smith has revealed his latest superyacht design, the five decked, 80 metre Epoch.

Featuring naval architecture by Dr Andrew Baglin and Stuart Friezer, Epoch would be built with an aluminium hull and superstructure. The design also features a “high performance hull” for “advanced seakeeping stability". Smith said the design was a follow-up on his unconventional explorer yacht design Era 80 but was “less challenging”.

Describing Epoch as an example of “progressive superyacht design”, Smith highlighted key exterior features, including an “eye-catching" bow silhouette and panoramic windows.

Accommodation would be for 20 guests across 10 staterooms, including an owners’ penthouse and private walk-around exercise deck surrounded by “curtain glass” providing 360-degree views.

The penthouse would include a dedicated cocktail bar and private dining facilities to ensure the owner can entertain large groups of friends or clients without leaving the apartment.

It is directly linked to the helipad above and to the beach club on the lower deck via the yacht’s central lift.

The remaining guest cabins comprise a presidential suite, two VIP suites and eight guest staterooms. The crew quarters meanwhile would see a staff of 24 accommodated in 12 cabins.

Smith said the design centres around ensuring dining and socialising facilities sit on every level of the yacht. One key feature in this vein is a panoramic entertainment lounge, complete with a theatre, bistro cocktail bar and butlers’ kitchen. The yacht would have a full 13 metre beam beach club and garage and a top speed of 25 knots.
