LONDON – A 5,600 square-foot superyacht that features floor to ceiling windows is a concept generated by skyscrapers and Lego building blocks.
The idea is that of Lujac Desautel, a student attending the California College of the Arts, School of Architecture, who proposed the boat’s design during the Boat International Young Designed of the Year competition. Participants were asked to design a yacht based on the hull of a 60 meter SWATH hull – a Small Water-plane Area Twin Hull.
Known as the Glass superyacht, Desautel’s design, is organized vertically by three cubic volumes, leveraging the swath hulls large beam width by stacking each floor like Lego blocks.
Effectively, each floor becomes entirely dedicated to maximizing the amount of living space for guest and crew on board, according to Desautel.
Nominated for Young Designer of the Year by Boat International Media, the yacht’s aft deck lowers itself to the water for access to tenders and water sports. The space can also serve as a private amphitheater for the owner to host performances.
The design is currently under development.
