The Unique 71 concept has been presented to the market with the help of Denison Yachting and was the result of a meeting between Denison and SkyStyle founders, Max Pardo and Lucas Colombo, at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show. "Denison showed great interest in the project and our intention to add new and fresh values to the yacht industry," said Colombo.
The 71 metre concept features an aluminium hull and superstructure and an unusual wedge-like profile. Highlights include a glass-wrapped sky lounge, a swimming pool on the main deck aft, and a helipad. Vast areas of glass connect the interior with its surroundings and the opacity of the glass panels throughout can be adjusted to increase privacy or transparency as required.
Unique 71 makes full use of its 13 metre beam, sleeping up to 12 guests in six cabins comprising of a master stateroom, one VIP suite and four cabins. Crew quarters are located on the lower deck, with space for a team 17 in nine cabins. Guests can move around the four decks using thr elevator amidships or the wraparound central staircase.
Elsewhere the design’s 12-seat theatre is found on the main deck forward of the dining area. Aft is a large swimming pool flanked by additional seating and sun pads.
Power will come from twin diesel engines that deliver a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots.
Denison’s Alex Clarke added: “In today’s world of yacht design, we are constantly pushing the boundary of what is possible both in form and function. Unique 71 aims to satisfy the most challenging client. The challenge will be finding a shipyard that can understand this vision and the client’s goals. We look forward to playing a small role.”
