ADASTRA SUPERYACHT

ADASTRA SUPERYACHT

“When you look at Adastra you look at the future of yacht design”

Designed by luxury yacht designer John Shuttleworth, the striking 42.5m Trimaran Adastra was launched in China for Hong Kong clients Anto and Elaine Marden. Her striking and futuristic design is a result of more than five years of cooperation between the Owner, the exterior designer John Shuttleworth Design Ltd, as well as the interior designers Jepson Designs and the shipyard.
Adastra won the Most Innovative Yacht prize, and at the ShowBoats Design Awards with an award for naval architecture and a judges’ commendation for exterior styling.

The yacht uses a trimaran shape that allows it to have multiple hulls, and ensures smooth and faster travel, allowing the vessel to move comfortably over water at high-speeds. The yacht’s deck and superstructure are constructed of carbon fibre with a carbon/Nomex honeycomb core, while the hull is an e-glass/Kevlar foam sandwich. At light load, the yacht burns 4.5 gallons of fuel an hour to cruise at 10.5 knots, which gives a range of 10,000 nautical miles. At 17 knots she uses 98 litres an hour and has a range of 4,000 nautical miles. Her top speed, delivered by one 1,150hp Caterpillar C18 engine, is 23.2 knots.
Adastra’s 16 metre beam creates a spacious saloon area on the main deck which offers superb views through a panoramic window and accommodates a lounge area, dining table, and navigation station.

32m motor yacht Cronos

32m motor yacht Cronos

The Cronos yacht is a highly innovative project by Simone Madella and Lorenzo Berselli, an Italian pair educated through the prestigious course BYT (bike, yacht and train). At the Millenium Yacht Design Awards they received a special mention in the “young professionals” category.
Futuristic and minimal interior and exterior make this luxurious yacht an ideal for traveling.
“Interesting experimentation in expressive language applied to interior architecture, with particular to the value of wood and its use forms” – they said for this miracle of form.
Simone Madella and Lorenzo want to create a connection between luxury object and owners life. They also mentioned that a yacht is not always about speed and losing control. There is a joy too, and that was the reason why they installed a modern slow boat.

Royal Huisman Hanuman

Dr. James H Clark reaffirmed his confidence in the Royal Huisman for the third time when he commissioned the Hanuman back in 2005. This time it was a recreation of the legendary racing yacht “Endeavour II”. The rig and mast is made out of composite on this 42.10 m yacht. Below decks interior designer Pieter Beeldsnijder has drawn upon fine traditional materials such as hand-polished French Walnut and period design references to create all the warmth and ambiance of a bygone era, sensitively fused with the high amenity standards of a modern superyacht. This is where sailing gets interesting.

Zaha Hadid Superyachts for Blohm + Voss

Stumbling across this Yacht on the World Wide Web certainly struck a certain note. I feel that I lack the eloquence to properly describe the appearance of this extraterrestrial craft.
The design is signed Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi-British architect with the design of structures like the Guangzhou Opera House on her resumé.The idea is to design a new concept of super yachts, initially with a 128-meter prototype and later on, 5 fully-engineered 90-meter yachts.

“The exoskeleton structure of the upper section is an interwoven network of supports that vary in thickness and lend a natural aesthetic to the yacht’s external appearance; evoking the organic structural systems of natural marine formations and connecting the various levels and decks of the ship seamlessly via expressive diagonals.”

 

Being nothing but a layman I ask myself if all that “architecture” structuring is superfluous and contributes to unnecessary weight, drag, noise, and added maintenance.  I am however very sure that the vessels will fill the purpose intended by their owners.
