Dutch yacht design firmSinot recently unveiled its 120-meter (394-ft) concept yachtduring the Monaco Yacht Show 2017. Dubbed Nature, the superyacht isdesigned to push the boundaries of contemporary yacht design bycombining a central focus around nature with luxury and innovation.

The design team used the geometrical lines of the yacht toharmonize the vessel with its marine environment. Viewing the yachtfrom land, the sea and surrounding landscape is reflected by the extensive windows that line the vessel, while on the yacht it's possible to get in touch with nature, either through the surrounding views of the ocean or through the onboard garden.

"The name of theyacht has duality in purpose: it is in reference to both humannature, and the way that humans interact with nature as environment,"superyacht designer and founder of Sinot, Sander Sinot, tells NewAtlas. "As designers, we are always fascinated by nature in itsperfection, purity and greatness; nature offers endless sources ofinspiration. But we have found that sometimes there is a strictdistinction between nature and human-built structures and we wantedto break those boundaries. With Nature we chose a radically differentapproach through creating a design that blends into nature withoutconflict or competition."

TheNature concept yacht features eight luxurious state and VIP suites, aspacious owner's suite, spa deck, gymnasium, swimming pool at sealevel, observatory and inner garden equipped with climate controltechnology. The owners have plenty of privacy with an entire deckdedicated to themselves, complete with a circular staircasethat connects the owner's suite with a huge 900-sq m (9,688-sq ft)panorams deck.

Furthermore, the upper deck observatory which islocated at the bow of the yacht, features impressive floor-to-ceilingwindows, offering guests on-board spectacular views while alsoblurring the lines between where the vessel meets the water. The yacht has also been designed to makes the most of natural light, while the stern and side hatches can be opened and the roof hatches slid out to create an open-air beach area. Meanwhile, a waterfall towards the bow flows with "fragranced droplets" – presumably of a natural scent.

"We worked from aholistic approach [and] it was important to our concept that we tookfull advantage of the geometrical lines and shapes that form thebasis of our natural surroundings," says Sinot. "Asa result, Nature does not need to resort to a sort of camouflage tobecome one with its environment. She will never compete with thebeauty of the sea, the shores and the coastlines, which she willexplore. Nature can blend into nature, without conflict orcompetition."

TheNature superyacht will be built with a steel hull and aluminumsuperstructure, complies with Large Yacht Code 3 (LY3) and can accommodate 18 guests and upto 50 crew members. It has been designed to run as energy-efficientlyas possible with a strong focus on the materials used and thelifespan of the vessel, which is anticipated to be decades.

"Theway we approach nature and the natural environment is unique," says Sinot. "Ofcourse, used materials are the best, most valuable and sought-aftermaterials one can imagine. It will be built by the best craftsman inthe world. But what is truly differentabout this yacht is that the design never dominates, it is neverintrusive. This is very special in this industry and the way wesucceeded in this makes me very proud."

Furtherfeatures include two double staff cabins, 18 double crew cabins, twotriple crew cabins, first officer cabin, captain's cabin, 10-m (33-ft) limo tender, 10-m (33-ft) sport tender, luxury tender, two crewtenders and eight wave runners.

It is anticipated totake four years to complete the Nature superyacht build with anundisclosed final costing. Sinot is excited about the futureprospects of the yacht for its future owners. The firm is alsolooking to further push the boundaries of yacht design with its next projects.

"We always try tomake a difference, to go a step further, to push the boundaries," Sinot says. "Ireally don't know what will be next, and that's what's excitingabout this industry. I do have all the faith that we will come upwith a concept that really makes a difference, not just another verylarge yacht."

I wouldn't be surprised if this yacht launches a new age in Marine Architecture. The concept seems to combine everything that was good about the Craftsman Movement of the early 20th Century, the Art Deco Movement of the 30s and the modernism of the 50s. At first, the lines don't look nautical, but seen from every angle, the design seems to be perfectly at home on the water.

Shoot! Forget yacht, I want my dream home to look like this, all furnished exactly like this!

In today`s era of mass production,it is a structure of absolute beauty.I hope that this promotes a challenge to every designer(of anything) to step outside the traditional boundaries.

I'm not 100% sure, but it seems that what was "revealed" was a set of really first-rate graphics, and not a yacht at all. I would have appreciated this distinction being made clear.

“ The Nature superyacht can ... accommodate 18 guests and up to 50 crew members ... has been designed to run as energy-efficiently as possible ...” Just reverse the ratio of guests to crew members, or ideally drop the gimmicks and emphasize only the looks&bling aspect.
