Van Geest Design Presents 130 Metre Concept Project Aura
by Miranda Blazeby
Dutch design studio Van Geest Design has presented a new 130 metre superyacht concept named Project Aura.
Revealed ahead of the Metstrade marine show next week, the concept has been inspired by “hand carved sculptures” and features “dominating” exterior lines.
Described as “strong” and “spacious”, Aura has a two-tone hull and superstructure. This, the studio said, “creates a distinctive look introducing contrast, graphic lines in three-dimensional shapes and plays with its volumes.”
While full accommodation details have not yet been revealed, Aura has two owner’s staterooms, one of which is suspended above the transom. There is also a two deck atrium forward of the “pool playground”.
Extensive entertaining exterior areas are provided for guests to “interact or find a private retreat”.
The GA and propulsion details of Aura have not yet been revealed.
