The Guido de Groot design studio is working on several yacht concepts on which most are exploring new shapes for times to come. The styling of the Streamliner concept is however taking us back in time.
Guido de Groot explains that inspiration for this yacht came from “streamlined” designs by Raymond Loewy (November 5, 1893 – July 14, 1986) such as his famous Bullitt nosed train designs for the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Greyhound Scenic cruiser bus and Studebaker cars. She evokes a golden era with her elegant streamlined form, and classic features.
She has an unique split level layout that allows the owner's cabin, situated forward in front of the raised pilot house, to feature a "balcony/bathing platform" situated amidships with unique access to the sea. This bathing platform, which can be raised and lowered, is situated in a watertight section of the yacht which also incorporates a sauna.
The yacht offers large open spaces with comfortable outdoor relaxation areas making her ideal for carefree cruising. The large sundeck area has been divided into several stepped levels including a bar area that is connected to a pantry area situated in the large funnel shaped housing. This Funnel shaped housing also has on top a helm station area that has a crow's nest function as well. Forward of the funnel is a large sunbathing area and a whirlpool. In order to keep the lines of the yacht clean, a large tender and toys are placed in an aft garage with an integrated slipway.
