Strand Craft reveals 93m yacht concept Project Speed
by Chris Jefferies
US-based Norwegian designer Kurt Strand has released his latest Strand Craft superyacht concept, the 93 metre Project Speed.
As the name would suggest, the design is geared around performance with an estimated top speed of 32 knots delivered by four 2,600hp MTU 16V2000 M96 diesel engines twinned to Rolls-Royce water jet drives.
Despite such a blistering turn of speed, this sleek tri-deck motor yacht would also be capable of a cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. Meanwhile, a pair of Seakeeper M35 stabilisers with active interceptors will ensure a smooth cruising experience and a peaceful night's sleep at anchor.
Her ample 300 square metre aft deck features a superyacht swimming pool with an infinity edge and a retractable LCD tinted glass awning, which covers a section of the aft deck.
Project Speed’s two large superyacht tender garages have been designed to house a pair of ten metre limousines and a custom-built amphibious car, as well as a selection of Jet Skis and water toys.
Moving forward and a hidden outdoor lounge area with a superyacht spa and bar area is located under the retractable foredeck. Other key features include a superyacht helipad, an elevator, two Jacuzzis and a spectacular fireplaces.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between six cabins including a master suite complete with a private study and five further staterooms. Room for 28 crewmembers ensures that the guests' every whim can be catered for.
