A new concept for a superyacht is redefining the meaning of sailing with luxury with over-the-top features, including a swimming pool that doubles as a dance floor. The 262-foot vessel is specifically designed to fit a billionaire’s growing line of high-powered toys and boasts a 1,100 square feet showroom, which can accommodate eight cars. The name CF8 stands for ‘cars and family in 80 metres’.
The conceptual model has a futuristic aerodynamic shape and is currently being developed by the Netherlands-based company Sea Level Yacht Design. Other signature features of the ultra-luxurious yacht will be an owner’s suit with 2,700 feet of deck space, VIP cabins with marble en-suit bathrooms, an eight-person Jacuzzi, a gym with sauna, private theatre, convertible swimming pool and an on-board waterfall and a showroom.
CF8 is still in development and can be expected to undergo some changes before becoming commercially available, but for now it has been announced the superyacht will be able to accommodate a crew of 18 members with extra cabins available for the nanny and the butler. Two lifts, a roof helipad and its own wastewater treatment system turn this vessel into a fully-functioning floating retreat. It has a range of 5,000 nautical miles and a maximum speed of 18 knots (20.7mph).
Designed with unparalleled care to detail and ambiance, the CF8 will bring maximum comfort to guests and crew. The yacht exhibits extreme width as well as increased stability for fast and comfortable travels. Designer Niels Ruiter and design director Jeroen van der Knaap have tried revolutionizing the use of space on a yacht to the point, where every part of the interior is stylized and utilized.
The spectacular swimming pool located on the lower level and within a large gap on the yacht in a way that the waterfall from a ‘stream’ on the upper deck falls directly into it. And if that wasn’t enough – when guests get tired of swimming they can entertain themselves on a dance floor that covers the pool.
