Sinot reveals 80m concept Aware

25 September 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Dutch studio Sinot has revealed designs for a 79.9-metre concept, called Aware, ahead of the Monaco Yacht Show. The ready-to-build superyacht proposal pools all of the studio's experience in design and engineering to create a yacht that has been carefully "optimised" to offer the best in on board experiences for an owner and guests. 

The yacht has a low profile, sitting just eight metres above the waterline

Key considerations of Aware include the use of light, space and the balance between exterior and interior areas. Sinot also worked to slim down the yacht's GT in order to amp up the amount of exterior living areas which the studio notes are "most often used" by guests. 

"For the design of Aware the focus is on maximizing the space on board within the yacht’s limited structure. We designed open plan layouts for the beach club, lounges and exterior decks that offer inherent flexibility and ample space while reducing the number of decks," explained Sander Sinot.

Areas that have benefitted from this increased use of outdoor space include the beach club, which has headheights of three metres, fold-down terraces and integrated sliding glass partitions which can be removed or added according to their use. 

Elsewhere, the yacht has a 460 square metre exterior space on the bridge deck with a lounge dining area, library and wheelhouse housed inside a glass-encased "pavilion" that creates a winter garden area on this deck.  Skylights with integrated shadow grids are built into the ceiling along the sides of the pavilion, allowing light to flood in from all sides.

"The principle of maximising space and reducing GT yields with a distinct, sleek, minimalist and super-spacious design," said Sinot

The 1,500GT yacht would have accommodation for ten guests in four cabins plus a full-beam owner's apartment complete with sliding glass doors leading to an exterior balcony with private Jacuzzi. There is a combined en suite and dressing room attached, and Sinot has said that all the furniture would be bespoke pieces "hand-crafted from durable and natural materials".

"For our design team this is one of the most challenging concepts we have ever launched because this is the next step in a yacht’s overall efficiency, and we believe a next step in yacht design," commented Sinot. “Aware combines a superior quality of build with a sophisticated use of natural materials and a seamless integration of technology resulting in a minimalistic, essential design atmosphere that creates a holistic awareness of the yacht for a true connoisseur owner.”

The Dutch studio has a number of award-winning yachts in its portfolio, including the 60-metre Heesen yacht Lusine and the 77.2-metre Pi
