Young Designer of the Year 2018 Finalist

Project Laminar

Named after her harmonised smooth exterior lines, depict the laminar flow of a fluid. The key factor of the design is functionality. Functionality involves safety, practicality, feasibility and privacy while at the same time is integrated with elegance and aesthetics.

In more detail, this is a 60 metre explorer yacht that can operate independently and in full swing, traveling all around the globe without the need of a support vessel. Carry your helicopter, cars, bikes, snowmobiles, submersibles and many more with no compromises. Able to accommodate up to 12 guests and 16 crew. There is a 360 degrees full glass observation saloon placed at the sun deck , which easily transforms to an open area with a touch of a button. The main saloon and dining area is placed at the bow, giving spectacular views to three directions with hydraulic side balconies (port & starboard).


The multipurpose helipad area can be transformed to a 9m long heating pool when the helicopter is away. When the helicopter is onboard, it can be stowed safely in its watertight hangar, while a second helicopter can still use the heli-area as a “touch and go” helipad. A beach club area is placed at the aft of the lower deck. It accommodates a boutique garage packed with tenders & toys and a glass surrounded living room, including a bar, can be transformed to a fully open area while in warm climates. There are three hydraulic operated platforms (aft,P.S,Stbd.S) ensuring the highest sea contact experience.
