Beyond Design presents project Black
By Maarten Janssen
A few weeks ago, SuperYachtTimes.com reported on a new design by Beyond Design, lead by Mumbai based designer Ashish Gupta, one of India's first innovative yacht design firms. We can now show you more images of this new revolutionary concept. Beyond's project Black, is a 95m design, developed in collaboration with Stolk Marimecs.
I met up with Ashish in Monaco on board the Moonen 124 Northlander, to discuss some of the particulars of Project Black. Ashish, who worked as a designer on India's first trideck superyacht Ashena, describes his work “not yacht design, but yacht architecture”.
The yacht measures 95 meters, is designed to cruise at high speeds with 16 guests and 25 crew. Some of the unique features on board are the breakfast island on the aft deck, an engine room that can be viewed from the entrance deck, and the grand swim platform. Project Black has been designed with innovative light weight Esthec decks, which give an extra dimension in yacht designing, as it allows for unlimited creative freedom.
