Written by Georgia Tindale

The Canadian studio, ER Yacht Design has unveiled their latest superyacht concept: the 53-metre sports superyacht Gotham 175. 

Gotham concept 53m The 53-metre vessel is the latest superyacht concept in the studio's Gotham line, with the Dutch yard ICON yachts responsible for the build and naval architecture and the London-based brokerage company Bristow Holmes working as the brokers for this series of vessels. ER Yacht Design would be responsible for both the interior and exterior design of this new superyacht.

In addition, the studio explains that they expect to develop various larger models in a similar style to the Gotham 175 in the near future.

The 53-metre version bears the same 'DNA' as the smaller boat in the series - the 45.84-metre Project Gotham which recently had its keel laid  - but it will have additional optional features such as helipad and transom pool.

Inside, the interior would be based on the present interior, but with a black and white colour scheme throughout the yacht to create a much sportier and more aggressive exterior design look than its predecessor. As the studio explains, the Gotham 175 is designed to be a true Sports Superyacht for the next generation of yacht owners looking for a distinctive vessel with more power, speed and which can provide an exhilarating performance. 

The exterior design is aggressive and modern, with futuristic styling in combination with sleek harmonious lines and producing a strong profile. The signature feature is a twin aft-swept winged masts, a feature unique to ER Yacht Design's Ivan Erdevicki's designs for this line of boats. With the streamlined elegant hull, the boat features three full decks plus a flybridge, which are all easily incorporated within the aerodynamic superstructure and a comfortable interior layout.

The bow shape is defined by a reverse angle stainless-steel steam, a subtle mid-bow chine and spray strakes just above the waterline, giving the bow a distinctive appearance, as well as having the functionality of deflecting the bow-wave spray and adding the reserve buoyancy for extra stability and seaworthiness. 

The yacht is designed to be built as semi-displacement aluminium hull and aluminium superstructure vessel with 20-26 plus knots speed and a Transatlantic range, with its hull design directed towards the boat's efficiency, seaworthiness and stability at sea. The yacht will be equally comfortable for a fast island hopping in the Mediterranean or Caribbean, as well as for safe Transatlantic passages, with a minimal fuel consumption at her cruising speed of 12 knots: all powered by twin Diesel MTU engines.

This three-deck design provides a spacious interior and generous deck space for leisure and entertainment opportunities. The luxurious accommodation sports a full beam, extra-large owners stateroom with large head and ample storage on the main deck which is separated from all other accommodation, a generous galley leading into the full size dining area and  saloon and sliding door opening onto a veranda large enough to accommodate all guests and additional day visitors when required, around horse-shoe shaped seating which overlooks the beach club. 

Four full-size guest suites are located on the lower deck with direct access to the main deck and separated from the crew quarters with their own lounge and access to the upper decks. 

At the same level is a large, permanent beach club for sunbathing and boarding the yacht’s tender and jet skis, which are stored in the boat-house with side launching through a hydraulically operated door without disturbing the beach club with a concealed extendible bar in the middle. A crew of between 8-12 would also be accommodated across 4-6 cabins, with an owner and guests of up to 10 accommodated across five staterooms. 

The pilothouse deck features a sky lounge, open-air bar, grill and full-size alfresco dining area shaded by a powered canvass awning and ample seating and sun beds for onboard relaxation.
