Atiratu / Megayacht


The concept's advantage is that the helicopter can be carried along in a bow hangar. Other goals of the draft were e.g. to integrate an underwaterlounge and a coherent propulsion concept. The ca 100m long yacht is designed for 16 guests and 40 persons crew and distinguishes itself with its distinctive, brawny but still elegant superstructure. The vital element is the great bracket which breaks through the typical layer-like look, optically joins the hull with the superstructure, shortens the required exhaust funnels, and hides the life boats. The design covers the exterior, exemplarily 3 rooms of the interior and the general arrangement.
