The most exciting concept yachts from the 2010 Monaco Boat Show.
Beluga ‘Emperor of the Sea’
The joint product of a design group and a decorative glass company, this outrageous 90-metre yacht derives its shape from, they claim, a whale and a traditional fishing boat.
The result of a challenge from an experienced owner for a very large, very private world-cruising yacht. The enquiring client had been impressed with this designer’s 74-metre Siren and 67-metre Triple-Seven.
128 Explorer yacht
She offers unsurpassed interior and exterior room for her size, with ample storage and deck space for toys, but still manages to sneak under the 500gt limit. The living spaces are designed to create different ‘climate zones’, and her optimised hull design offers great comfort under way and at rest.
Code-named Project Stealth, this 62-metre has an extreme, masculine design with sleek looks and hybrid propulsion. The long and narrow waterline, enhanced by the vertical bow, reduces resistance and
optimises fuel consumption.
Ruea Yachts 60m
Sixty metres of motor yacht combining the best in British design, with naval architecture by BMT Nigel Gee and styling by Design Unlimited. It’s pegged to be built by Ruea Yachts, the recently launched superyacht division of Thailand-based Yacht Solutions.
Messerschmitt MTT Conqueror
A 90-metre with attitude. The combination of a sporty profile, an aggressive axe bow, a navy grey finish and a series of sharp-faceted surfaces give it the menacing air of a stealth-ship. It will be built by the Nobiskrug yard in Germany.
The ease of operation – computer-controlled furling booms, hydraulic roller furling head, fisherman sails, captive winches and lightweight spars mean that this seemingly intricate set of sails gives a balanced, flexible rig boasting a huge sail area without the hassle you might expect.
Raised Pilot House Motor Yacht
Despite her modest 30-metre length, she has strong lines and lovely proportions that make her look larger than she is. Werner has gone to great lengths to create a spacious interior for this compact superyacht.
