Philippe Renaudeau Yacht Design and interior designer Nicola Borella have teamed up to design a 70.5-metre superyacht concept for the luxury French cristallerie, Lalique. The resultant design is the Yacht by Lalique, which will be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.The Yacht by Lalique will not only nod to the rich history of the Lalique brand, but will also look towards the future by employing an eco-friendly design. The superyacht will feature an electric propulsion system, which harnesses energy through a combination of renewable energy sources including solar, wind and currents. Additional energy will be harvested through a seawater electrolysis process in which hydrogen will be extracted from seawater and stored on board in fuel cells. This process has been developed by Energy Observer, who collaborated on the project. Besides the superyacht’s propulsion system, additional environmental considerations have been taken. The collection of runoff water, management of ‘black’ and ‘grey’ water, organic waste management and the use of eco-friendly materials where possible have also been implemented in the design.The Yacht features extensive space on board for leisure. The main deck is home to a swimming pool, a bar, a Jacuzzi and an exterior terrace. Inside, the main saloon connects to the dining room as well as a small living room. Additionally, six guest staterooms are found on the main deck. The Yacht’s interior will feature Lalique crystal pieces throughout as well as custom designed decor from Maison MEFTAH. The interior of the superyacht has been imagined in collaboration between Lalique, Maison MEFTAH, OCEA Shipyard and designer Nicola Borella.The upper deck features an additional Jacuzzi as well as a sunbathing area, and a lounge to both bow and stern. A 101 square-metre owner’s suite is also situated on the main deck and is complete with a double dressing room, two toilets and two bathrooms as well as a large lounge area. The upper deck also provides access to a helipad.
The Yacht’s flybridge is dedicated to leisure. The deck is home to a Japanese bath, a bar and a sunbathing area while the interior features a lounge, a workout gym, a billiards table, a spa, a sauna and more.The superyacht will have a range of 6,000 nautical miles while cruising at 12 knots, thanks to her twin 1,750 kW engines.
