To mark the opening of the studio Nick Stark Design, the Australian firm has released a series of new-generation shadow-vessels named the Constellation Series.

This concept has allowed for spaces to be optimised, providing new recreation opportunities and the possibility of chartering services specifically for shadow vessels.

The largest of the series, the 75-metre Aquila, provides guests with an expansive beach club, wellness centre, disco and a fully-stocked toy store.Aquila yacht concept exterior designPhoto: Nick StarkAquila yacht concept exterior designPhoto: Nick StarkCygnus, the next vessel in the series, offers guests the option to arrive by helicopter. In addition to recreation space, Cygnus offers ample storage for tenders, toys and support crafts.
