Zuccon SuperYacht Design, a Zuccon International Project brand, has unveiled more details about their 92 metre design, the 92 SYD Discovery. Based on a pre-existing naval platform, the project goes beyond a simple design concept.
Reminiscent of a military vessel, with a distinctive vertical bow, the yacht also draws inspiration from civil architecture concepts, such as designs by Peter Eisenman and Steven Holl. The project's main feature is the unusual switch of her exterior decks, moving the swimming pool and main outdoor living and sunbathing areas to the bow of the yacht, which will ensure maximum privacy to guests when in port. To further ensure guest privacy, crew operations were also moved. For example, the anchor area has been hidden from view on a sub-deck.
Part of the forward superstructure has been opened up, to create a large covered deck area, adjacent to the pool. The main aft deck has been used as a storage area for toys and tenders, with the decks above still providing plenty of guest space for guests to lounge, dine and relax.
The yacht’s tankdeck, as well as her lower deck are reserved almost exclusively to the crew and technical areas. The only exception is the aft beach club, which can even be used when underway. The designers have placed large windows in the stern, to provide a unique viewing point for guests when underway.
The yacht’s main and upper deck is entirely devoted to guests, with extra attention given to the exterior decks. The main deck offers a large saloon and cinema forward, while the six guest cabins and the two VIP cabins, each with their own private terrace, are located aft.
