Future Yacht: Sabdes 50-meter Axe-BowCab Forward, Reverse Bow Concept The latest SABDES design comes in the form of a 50 metre (164') Superyacht that goes against the 'bigger is more impressive' yacht trend, instead focusing on an exciting, stylish, advanced luxury yacht, efficient in fuel and emissions, with an intent to be environmentally sensitive in both the vessel's building and cruising life. Conceived by Australian Superyacht Stylist Scott Blee, the yacht is based around an advanced slender hullform with a reverse bow, offering superior seakeeping, minimized wave 'slamming', economical 25 knot performance, and long distance range. The hull design also will be optimized to have a minimal surface and hull wake, thus reducing its impact on sensitive marine life, as well as shoreline erosion. The external styling is contemporary, clean and slightly aggressive; Sharp edges and sweeping lines intersect glass windows in the superstructure. A 'classic' yacht character is achieved by the side glass protection strakes being covered with wood veneer, and also in the the use of wood panels in the sides nearing the transom.
