5 Ways Sinot’s wild Symmetry concept breaks the mould

5 Ways Sinot’s wild Symmetry concept breaks the mould

The bi-directional superyacht

Symmetry Yacht Concept Running

Is this yacht coming at you or sailing away from you? Are you looking at the aft or the bow? If you think you know the answer, well think again.

Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design has premiered Symmetry, a wild concept for a “bi-directional” and symmetrical 180 metre yacht.

The yacht has the same shape at its aft as it does as its bow, and it can be sailed in either direction, so you're forgiven if you're confused for a moment and not know if you’re seeing the yacht running towards you or heading away.

Sinot calls this a “revolutionary” design, and it’s certainly anything but traditional. The bi-directional cruising capability is just one way that the Symmetry superyacht concept breaks the mould.

Symmetry is built from the center out

Symmetry Yacht Concept

Symmetry has a unique layout that was designed from the middle of the yacht heading out towards the bow and aft. Sinot used this method both as a means to “transform traditional yacht design” and to improve functionality and flow on board as well as enhance manoeuvrability when underway.

“The yacht’s layout is created by symmetrically building up from the centre, instead of using the traditional linear set up,” says designer Sander Sinot. “Functions on the decks are organised around the central void with an intuitive logic. The symmetrical shape of the hull allows for a bi-directional course at sea, tight manoeuvres and pivoting, ensuring comfortable tender transfers on the lee side of the lower deck’s mid-ship beach lounge.”

Symmetry Yacht Concept Mid Deck Lounge

Symmetry has an LOA of 180 metres and a beam of 29 metres, providing an interior volume of more than 18,000GT and exterior living space of more than 1,000 square metres. The Symmetry superyacht concept is designed to accommodate 34 guests and 48 crew, with each deck designated for a particular function.

The mid-ship beach deck, pictured above, has a float-in tender garage and seawater pool while the guest deck has a glass bottom pool and VIP staterooms with balconies. The hotel deck boasts amenities such as the spa, dining area, bar and lounges, a garden space and another 17 metre pool. The wheelhouse has dual helms to accommodate the bi-directional running, and the lower deck is where you would find the cinema and kids’ playroom.
