The New York design studio run by Alistair Gill and Veronika Schmid known before as Impossible Productions Ink recently underwent a re-branding stage where the creative duo combined their names to create Gill Schmid Design. As part of this announcement, the studio has unveiled its latest superyacht concept - the 110 metre Halycon.
Halycon is focussed on offering the ultimate in privacy for her 18 guests that are accommodated in an owner’s suite and eight guest staterooms. To achieve this, Gill Schmid Design took a closer look at the possible uses of glazed glassed surfaces and its benefits on superyachts.
Large areas of full-height glass sides wrap each deck to not only provide excellent visibility from the interior, but which's one-way characteristics createa new level of privacy for guests. The material seems transparent from the inside but seen from the exterior, provides an opaque barrier.
Other unique features include two glass-bottomed swimming pools on the main and upper deck respectively. These two areas are connected with a waterfall that flows onto main deck below.
Inside, guests are welcomed in six guests staterooms and two VIP suites. The large owner’s suite has access to a private sauna area and two separate outdoor spaces. Guests can spend the day in the expansive beach club on the lower deck where a gym, sauna, and massage areas await.
