14 November 2019 • Written by Miranda Blazeby

French designer Thierry Gaugain has unveiled his first solo design project with SuperYachtsMonaco, the 120 metre “ultra-modern” Project L.

Gaugain’s solo project follows two decades of working with designer Philippe Starck on projects including Sailing Yacht A, Wedge Too and Venus.

The exterior of the “revolutionary” Project L is inspired by the “smooth form of a beach pebble”, which can be fully opened for a direct connection to the ocean.

Powered by a diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system, Project L is intended for long-range cruising and designed to “glide” through the water with low noise and vibration.

Key features include a “futuristic submarine escape pod”.

Gaugain has attempted to “redefine the onboard lifestyle” with the interior layout arranged on one single deck for a “multi-functional open-plan family living space.”

With a key focus on privacy and security, the yacht is capable of accommodating between 12 and 36 guests on board, as well as a crew of 40.

The interior will be illuminated by natural light thanks to a “seamless connection” between indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Key interior features include a high-tech underwater media room, spa, gymnasium and forward-facing owner’s lounge made entirely from glass for far-reaching ocean views.

Exterior details include two swimming pools, an extendable beach club, helipad, drive-in tender garage and a “futuristic submarine escape pod”.
