New Design: 55-meter "Ghost" The Ghost 180 is intended to simplify operations by way of sophisticated nautical technology. It is the brain-child of the Italian design firm Gloss Design and Dutch marketing consultant Björn Moonen, both with completely different backgrounds, but a common passion for yachts and technology. The target of the project was to create a sustainable, durable and less complicated yacht. Easier to build, shorter lead times, better overview of the build process and reduced costs are the project’s cornerstones . During the design stage, Ghost 180 went through a life cycle assessment with the goal to have a better understanding of the financial and ecological impact of the yacht and reduce it. The signature styling of the Ghost 180 is a combination of sharp angles combined with clear smooth surfaces. The design plays with the ambient light and is accentuated by the lights and shadows that appear when the yacht changes position. The goal was to design a modern interpretation of a superyacht without crossing the line of futuristic styling.
