Over the Top; Meet the Yacht Project Star of the Future !

We come across a lot of cool design projects on our quest for luxury news, however, this one really caught our eye.

An initiative designed by Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee, Project Star came about from a conversation between Alex Malybeav from Firma branding agency and yacht designer, Igor Lobanov. Having come to the conclusion that all yachts look the same to those outside the marine industry, Malybeav took out a napkin and doodled a picture of his perfect yacht. Lobanov loved it so much that he set out to prove that the design could indeed become a reality.

Created to be the world's most exclusive private hotel yacht, it measures 132m in length, 60m in height and boasts 3,500 square feet of interior room. The vessel has a maxium speed of 18+kts. Its "technical development features a symmetrically fore & aft double ended hullform, with all electric architecture and fully azimuthing propulsion." Its ground breaking design allows the yacht to rotate within "her own length to track the arc of the sun free from the constraints of traditional anchors."

Added to all of the above, it boasts four lifts that provide access across 8 decks while lifts 1 and 3 extend from a sub-marine viewing area up to a viewing platform on the eight deck allowing passengers to enjoy a spectacular view of over 20km.

Speaking about Project Star, Yacht Design Director of BMT Nigel Gee was optimistic about the initiative stating that:

"Historically yacht design has been described as both an art and a science. STAR is a tangible view of a 21st century interpretation of art and science. We are fortunate to live in an era where technology makes the delivery of bolder designs more possible – for clients who are adventurous innovators anything is truly possible." ref: www.luxehighlife.com
