UK-based ThirtyC Design Studios have released their latest 53-metre superyacht concept. Set to include radical design features such as a glazed roof and double height saloon, the superyacht concept is reportedly targeting the ‘younger generation’ of yachtsmen.

The freethinking design also includes ceiling windows running across the aft of the superstructure which brings more natural light inside.Photo: ThirtyC Design“Komodo is aimed at a more relaxed lifestyle,” says ThirtyC Design Director, Alastair Fletcher. “There are many features designed to open up the interior space as well, removing tired or formal boundaries associated with compartmentalised living.”Photo: ThirtyC DesignThe design studio revealed a few exceptional design elements, including a mezzanine dining area in the double-height saloon, a central atrium, jacuzzi, and large beach club with a movable transom door. Exterior highlights include biomimetic styling - meaning the designers have incorporated elements of the natural world into the yacht’s design. Extending from the semi-displacement hull are hydraulic doors which open to reveal a tender garage with room for two tenders plus two jet skis and one door further forward which opens up the onboard gym to the sea breeze.

Furthermore, the crew spaces aboard Komodo are spacious and include an upper-deck captain's cabin, so that he/she is near the bridge at all times.Photo: ThirtyC DesignPrevious ThirtyC concepts include the 50-metre Mako, which features an interior design from the drawing boards of Baldwin Harris.
