Michael Givens, Lead Designer at JQB Design, has revealed a new 90-metre tri-deck superyacht concept this month. Coming from the design office behind the world’s largest explorer yacht, Octopus, the new concept was inspired by the automotive world and features strong stylistic elements while retaining a sense of timelessness.

The balanced design’s sheer line catches the eye and visually connects the foredeck with the upper aft deck. Above this line sits a ‘sensible’ and low-profile superstructure painted in crisp white with metallic silver accents in between. The flush foredeck is designed to receive a helicopter when at anchor.

Floor to ceiling windows on the main deck give the guest cabins excellent views to the outside while the master suite located one level above enjoys a prime real estate spot with panoramic vistas over the surroundings.

With a beam of 14 metres and a draft of 4 metres, the project is designed to be fitted with a hybrid diesel-electric power plant that drives either an Azipod or conventional shafts for propulsion. An advanced battery power system will also be investigated to deliver cleaner power for hotel needs onboard.
