Nick Mezas Yacht Design has revealed its new 69-metre superyacht concept, named Smooth, to SYT this week. Designed in collaboration with the underwater gurus at Van Oossanen Naval Architects, Smooth is created to provide a fast, stable and comfortable experience at sea.

“The inspiration behind the Smooth was to create a fast vessel for long-distance cruising in complete comfort,” explains Mezas. To make this possible, great attention was paid to what goes on below the water line. Van Oossanen Naval Architects’ developed Fast Displacement Hull Form with an integrated Hull Vane allows the yacht to reach a maximum speed of 20 knots with an impressive range of 5,000 nm at 14 knots whilst burning roughly 392 liters of fuel per hour.

As expected form a yacht this size, the owner is given his own full-beam suite forward on the main deck complete with study, private cinema room and large walk-in wardrobe. Four additional guest cabins are located on the lower deck to provide accommodation for up to 12 guests.

Stand-out features onboard include a large tender garage within the bow section, large sundeck space, panoramic skylounge on the upper deck, and spacious beach club at the stern.

Smooth is designed to operate with 14 crew members that are accommodated across seven cabins.
