_About the design: _

The superyacht "RP80" is defined by a few flowing and sharp design lines which stretch the length of the yacht. My intention was to combine boat design with automotive surface treatment. The yacht has stunning proportions with an elegant floating superstructure made from switchable and dimmable smart glass to give a clean and sculptural appearance. The yacht houses two 10 metre tenders which are unique. The first one is a limousine tender which really flies over the water thanks to retractable foils. To increase the visual effect of flying over the water the centre bottom of the interior lounge is designed to be transparent. The second tender is an open tender for exploration. When anchored the side-bulwarks can be folded down to increase usable deck space for sunbathing. All three boats follow the same design language that make them truly recognisable of the same kind.
