Andy Waugh Design has created the astonishing 130-metre Epiphany, with vast open deck spaces aft and a sweeping superstructure.
Andy Waugh Design says that the Epiphany concept was inspired by “a simplification of the yacht form, with a minimum of styling lines and structures creating a dramatic, elegant effect that belies the practicality and large volumes of accommodation”. The yacht would certainly make a dramatic sight on the water, with its long nose and cascade of decks aft.
The yacht’s bridge is situated on the upper deck, offering commanding views, and aft of the bridge and main central lobby is an owner’s library and balcony overlooking a double-height lounge on the owner’s deck below. On the owner’s deck itself, the stateroom extends forward with views towards a private foredeck with seating areas and a hot-tub. Aft, there is a private cinema, and an office with cabin space for a PA or other staff.
Below the owner’s deck is a dedicated VIP deck, with four huge VIP cabins each with private balconies. Other features on this deck include a cinema, gaming area, gym and spa, and there is alfresco dining aft.
The aft deck hosts the main pool area, which converts into a helipad. Forward there are two further VIP cabins and eight guest cabins. Low bulwarks along the entire deck and full-height glass give an enhanced sense of openness and space.
A beach club and tender stowage are on the lower deck, along with a cinema, dive room and crew accommodation towards the bow. The crew areas include a dedicated officer’s mess and security office along with cabins for around 40 crew and staff.
