Komorebi is the latest concept from the yard and was unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show this year.
Komorebi is a motor-assisted sailing superyacht concept from French company VPLP. “Komorebi is the quintessence of what we think of yachting, luxury and space,” says Guillaume Rey from VPLP. “This hybrid trimaran is the perfect answer to comfort at sea, space, stability, low running costs as well as a big step towards a clean wake.”
The automated sail wings are able to power her to 15 knots in 20 knots of wind with no engine, and in hybrid mode with both sail and engine she is projected to average at least a 30% fuel saving.
Komorebi is the Japanese concept of the time when nature is enhanced by the sun’s rays. The yacht draws on this with lavish use of glass and open spaces, allowing natural light to flow throughout the yacht.
The extra space afforded by the trimaran design has been used to divide existing spaces into distinct areas, designed to suit everyone, from the very private to the most open of parties.
Lots of garage space has been given over to providing plenty of toys, including tenders, submarines and sailing boats.
