Rome-based designer Alberto Frulla of SaturaStudio has revealed a 65-metre concept called Bimyou.
From the Japanese word for "delicate", Bimyou is designed to recentre the sea as "the true protagonist of the project". This is done by reinterpreting traditional outdoor spaces and taking advantage of changes in height and volume to maximise owners' immersion in their surroundings.
Bimyou's tapered profile and metallic-blue paint job are inspired by "movement, wind and speed", featuring a slender inverted bow whose line stretches all the way to the stern. According to the designer, "this purity is only interrupted by a large window", installed to afford the interior spaces (including the full-beam owner's cabin) more natural light.
The upper deck plays with height variations that divide the areas and give each a distinct "character". At the stern, there is a convivial area arranged with sunbeds, sofas and a 10-person dining table. Further along the upper deck is an al fresco saloon with an impressive head height of 2.9 metres, protected on three sides and with direct access to a glass staircase that crosses all decks. The saloon's elevated position enables far-flung views off the stern in spite of its sheltered position.
Flanked by movable wood-and-steel parasols, the beach club has a head height of over 2.5 metres and is fitted with an infinity pool that benefits from uninterrupted ocean views. Another noteworthy design point is Bimyou's swim platform, positioned at a height that allows it to be used even when the yacht is underway. Once anchored, the swim platform can be lowered into the water.
