Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design is gearing up to present its latest superyacht concept at the Monaco Yacht Show - the 115-metre Art of Life.

Reminiscent of a 16th-century Dutch schooner yacht, she features a fast, versatile and efficient hull much like a schooner yacht.

This, combined with the state-of-the-art and fully integrated technology, makes Art of Life very spacious.” The new superyacht concept aims to offer clients unrivalled access to the environment around them, as huge aft windows from the stern lounge, large windows and multiple skylights ensure Art of Life is saturated by natural light and views.

The architectural setup aboard was created to be intuitive, offering a clear and functional layout that flows with the interior. For example, the owner’s stateroom is spacious and includes a private lounge spanning the main and upper deck. Accessible via a private staircase, which is lit by multiple skylights, future owners can enjoy the panoramic views thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows.

In order to offer guests maximum use of space, the new design is able to accommodate up to 12 guests in six staterooms, including the owner stateroom, 2 VIP staterooms and 3 guest staterooms. She also has the capacity to accommodate 35 crew members, with one captain cabins, four single staff and 15 double crew cabins.

For example, the indoor health and beauty centre, located on the main and lower decks is connected by an open, architectural staircase for a spacious effect and includes a large indoor pool, sauna, treatment area, hair and beauty room and massage area, to offer clients maximum comfort and relaxation. The stern lounge also boasts a 384-inch retractable cinema screen, while the gym features fold-down hatched to the water level. The toy garage, which offers plenty of space for numerous toys and tenders, also includes a fold-down hatch for amphibious launches.
