The Italian naval architecture studio, Hydrotec, has revealed its latest 100-metre superyacht concept: Project Crossbow.
Measuring 100-metres in length, with a beam of 12.5 metres and a draft of 3.5 metres, the Crossbow concept features an aluminium hull and superstructure. Offering an unusual take on a 100-metre length superyacht, Crossbow is designed to create a high performance and efficient all-aluminium vessel which is fast and light, with a sleek and sporty aesthetic visible in the renderings.
The yacht's design aims to give the impression of large continuous glass through a curved windscreen. This, in turn, creates a huge double height and forward facing interior lounge. The interior layout of this vessel is also designed with flexibility in mind, with variations available for either a private owner's deck or a larger owner's suite on the upper deck. The exterior deck areas have been designed to meet a need for speed, keeping the fixed furniture light and well protected from the wind, with the bow transforming at anchor into an expansive entertaining and sunbathing area.
For the owner of Crossbow, there would be no need to use a support vessel for extra toys and tenders. She boasts an integrated opening heli-hangar on the foredeck, as well as two 9.5-metre custom tenders and toys in the aft garage, which is located in front of the 135m2 beach club. In addition, her shallow draft of just 3.5 meters is ideal for cruising in areas that many yachts of this size cannot access.
Performance-wise, the 100-metre motor yacht would have a top speed of 25 knots with power provided by twin MTU 16V 4000 M93L engines.
