The Canada-based design studio ER Yacht Design has unveiled the renderings of its 61-metre superyacht concept Project Echo. The motor yacht concept is described by the studio as ‘dangerously beautiful’ and has been designed for Turquoise Yachts in Turkey.Project Echo yacht by ER Yacht DesignPhoto: ER Yacht DesignThe yacht Project Echo is defined by her elongated lines that flow from bow to stern and flawlessly integrate with her powerful sporty design. The semi-displacement yacht features uniquely sculptured surfaces around her hull and superstructure with large windows that provide a distinctive character to her profile.

She keeps her large and high windows throughout her length to provide unrivalled views for guests.Project Echo yacht by ER Yacht DesignPhoto: ER Yacht DesignThe 899 GT superyacht features spacious and luxurious exterior decks that have been designed with entertainment in mind. Her upper deck is able to accommodate up to 35 guests and her folding aft sides can be extended to provide an extravagant beach club with a 6-metre long pool.Project Echo yacht by ER Yacht DesignPhoto: ER Yacht DesignThe stairs from the main deck to the upper deck of Project Echo have been designed around the pool and are not built into the superstructure. This means that the steps are thin, with guests able to see through the staircase, making them a feature rather than an obstacle.Project Echo yacht by ER Yacht DesignPhoto: ER Yacht DesignProject Echo spans across four decks with an impressive interior layout to match her exterior. Her spacious saloon and dining area on the main deck is surrounded by full-height windows that flood the room with natural light and 300-degrees of almost unobstructed views.Project Echo yacht by ER Yacht DesignPhoto: ER Yacht DesignIn terms of accommodation, the superyacht Project Echo provides her owner with the upper deck to allow for total privacy and utmost comfort. Her six remaining staterooms are located on the main deck and offer luxurious full-height windows for a truly unique experience for guests.Project Echo yacht by ER Yacht DesignPhoto: ER Yacht DesignProject Echo’s efficient performance stems from her semi-displacement hull, which can be used as a displacement hull with smaller engines and a top speed of 17 knots. The fast displacement hull is able to reach a top speed of 27 knots with a larger engine.
