Sabdes Design’s new 85m superyacht concept

Written by Charl van Rooy

Australian yacht designer Scott Blee has shared with us his latest creation developed by Sabdes Design Studio of an 85-metre superyacht. Based on a fully engineered platform by Icon Yachts, the design can be implemented around several other 80-90 metre platforms on offer by several top northern European shipyards.

The concept is offered with the choice of either a conventional flared bow or with a more modern axe bow shape for an extended waterline length.

Designer Scott Blee explains his vision behind the project: “During a recent stay in the Netherlands, I conceived ideas for a new design. Spending some time visiting and discussing with yards and brokers gave me a clearer sense of what elements to include; an efficient hull form and propulsion, long and strong lines, minimal detailing, simplicity of build, large glass surfaces, interconnected indoor / outdoor spaces, and subtle styling features - all merging together seamlessly. Whichever options for her hull and styling are chosen by clients, these yachts will be unique to their builder.”
