Sabdes Design’s new 85m superyacht concept

Written by

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.”
