Discussion in 'Yacht Renderings & Plans' started by Kajan, Dec 4, 2011.
It has been awhile... You wouldn't happen to have any new designs yet would you?
Nothing in the big boat category at the moment but a 55 ft. sail concept with a retractable hydrofoil and canting keel together with a slight alteration to the previous 28 ft. mahogany concept, this time with a touch of down Easter look.
Sweet!! I love the 55 ft sailboat concept! Great job on that I look forward to seeing more of your designs.
As sleek as that sailboat is, the transom looks a little ill fitting... just my humble opinion.
I was aiming for a design with some of the hull characteristics of a modern race hull with a very wide stern in combination with a more traditional deck. I guess the transom appears a little cut-off in the side view, perhaps this illustration put things in a different perspective?
With a timeless design, the Gatsby 65 is a gentleman yacht of our time.
10 Kw solar arrays with diesel electric propulsion and azimuth pod drives.
Welcome back Mike! Long time, no post. For our readers who have YF t-shirts, Mike was the artist behind our t-ship...
I hope your great inspirations are flowing again and we will see the results on YF!
Thanks Carl! Yes, long time no post. I have to say, I’m a bit puzzled to the lack of concepts being posted in general?
Hey wwch! Yes, I might have some concepts in the pipe ;-)
If I was a designer and had to compete with you or Lars, I doubt I'd post too!
At 220 meter/722 ft. this concept would be the largest yacht in the world both in length and displacement if ever built.
With a beam of 28 meter/92 ft. and 9 decks, it’s easy to understand that you will not have any problems in deciding what, tenders, toys, cars, helicopters or friends to leave on the dock – just bring them all! One issue though, should you put your 80 ft. tender in a garage under the foredeck or use a Drive-in tender bay?
On deck 9 you will find a 200 m2 "crow’s nest" with a 360 degree view and surrounding deck. Perhaps the ultimate owner’s deck or a sky lounge with the best seats in the house? Below the crow’s nest you can land on the LY3/MCA-certified helideck but you can also store your friend’s helicopter next to yours, safely in the enclosed hangar.
Helicopters are practical but what makes this concept a bit different is the possibility to bring along a turbine powered 10-seater seaplane for some interesting island hopping. The mandatory sub goes without saying and there is even a hot air balloon on the options list.
Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas!
If you can you make a Christmas version of the 220m, it would be a nice post card for the front page. Now, if I can just figure out what thread to connect it to...
Or maybe a Happy New Year version?
I found the Christmas Card.
Thank you Mike.
Safe and wonderful Christmas & new year to all
