Grand designs: The Most Extreme Superyacht Concepts in the World

Mauna Kea

Erupting with fresh ideas, Mauna Kea is the new 101 metre superyacht concept from Italian designer Roberto Curtó. Named after a dormant Hawaiian volcano, this clever design features two large staircases that gently slope down from the upper deck to the main deck, much like the flow of lava from a recently erupted peak. The aft staircase sports a fun feature — a central water slide that allows guests to splash down in the pool below, which is surrounded by seven sunpads.

Although this design is still at the concept stage, it has already caught the eye of brokerage firm SuperYachtsMonaco and potential build partner Fincantieri Yachts.
