Revealed for the first time today, Ken Freivokh Design has been working on a new superyacht project of 140 metres in length which has been designed from mast to keel for an experienced client. The project is equipped with several innovative features and creative outdoor spaces, all wrapped up in a veneer of impressive glass surfaces that pushes the limits of this material as a construction element on superyachts.Ken Freivokh Design 140m Motor Yacht

As one would expect from a 140-metre superyacht, this project comes complete with a dedicated fleet of tenders, ready to whisk you away to shore. Down at water level, a full beam garage can house up to six large limousine tenders and beach-landing craft. In addition, a 14-metre pool at the stern transforms into a floating dock for the mothership’s main guest tender that effortlessly cruises into the docking bay before the transom door is secured and anchor gets weighed.Ken Freivokh Design 140m Motor Yacht

At anchor, the forward helipad is ideal for quick pick-ups and drop-offs and only a few steps down you arrive at the lavish sunken level. This terrace-like space offers the perfect combination of stunning scenery and privacy in the comfort of a wind-free zone via the side glass panels that can be closed if needed. The fully temperature-controlled pool acts as the centrepiece and has its own waterfall feature for a soothing effect.Ken Freivokh Design 140m Motor Yacht Ken Freivokh Design 140m Motor Yacht The circular cut-out in the very tip of the bow is designed to offer a unique perspective to guests when inside the observation bubble here. Full-height glazing on each side creates a floating sensation and is best enjoyed as the ship steams silently through the ocean as the sun goes down. Ken Freivokh Design 140m Motor Yacht

Inside, great attention has been paid to the layout and creating a clear separation between guest and crew spaces for the ultimate private experience for the owner. Two separate owner’s staterooms and a host of luxury VIP and guest suites are spread across seven interior decks, all of which are connected with a glass elevator. A full-sized IMAX cinema takes late-night movies to a whole new level.Ken Freivokh Design 140m Motor Yacht
