Get a closer look at Bannenberg & Rowell's latest design: 112m Kappa

Written by Francesca Webster

In April, Bannenberg & Rowell released details of their newest concept, the 112-metre Kappa. The vessel is set to continue the design studios bold and progressive style, recognised in their previous designs, such as the 70-metre Feadship, Joy, which was launched in 2016, and most recently in their collaboration with Lürssen on Project 13800.Kappa yacht exterior designPhoto: Bannenberg & RowellGlass is the most visually prevalent stylistic tool used by Kappa's designers, weaving through the structural elements of the superyacht and giving her a lightness that is unusual for a vessel of her size. Glass runs around the main and upper deck bulwarks at the stern, and a pool at her beach deck is finished with a glass stern side, giving the infinity pool a vanishing effect.Kappa yacht exterior designPhoto: Bannenberg & RowellKappa yacht exterior designPhoto: Bannenberg & RowellThe superyacht’s bow, rather than one solid deck, has been broken by a multitude of elevations, culminating in a bird's nest at the very bow, giving the owner unprecedented privacy. The ‘island’, as the studio describes this space, is connected to the main deck by a bridge, which doubles as a crane for the rescue boats below. There is also an additional service staircase for the crew, accessed through a sliding deck hatch. A secondary pool is located amidships.Kappa yacht exterior designPhoto: Bannenberg & RowellAt her stern, her lines come to flying buttress ends, creating a visual effect of suspension, and diminishing the structural obtrusion between the vessel and the water. The central pool is accompanied on the beach deck by a gym, while a stairwell to starboard leads to a lounge with underwater viewing gallery and scuba dive store.Kappa yacht exterior designPhoto: Bannenberg & RowellWhile Kappa is currently in development, the SYT 3D team have worked with Bannenberg & Rowell to present Kappa in full three dimensional form within the SYT 3D world.
