Amsterdam-based designer Isaac Burrough has introduced a new 28-metre (92-foot) motor yacht concept that draws inspiration from the world of product design rather than the architecture and automotive industries that typically shape today’s designs.
Burrough adds: “My goal was to look beyond the usual sources of inspiration for the yachting industry, to create a design that is both calming and welcoming.”
Functional and elegant, the concept showcases an exterior with long uninterrupted lines, large clean surfaces and bold rounded edges. It results in a design that is simple yet striking in appearance. Mediterranean living inspired both the exterior and interior with the hull finish described as Santorini blue a shade that is also picked up by the upholstery and soft furnishings in the saloon.
Accommodation is for up to eight guests, including a full-beam owner’s cabin on the main deck and a full-beam VIP suite on the lower deck. A central glass-encased staircase offers easy access between decks, with a separate route for the yacht’s four crewmembers to ensure maximum privacy. Crew accommodation is set on the lower deck forward.
New Zealand-born Burrough adds that the flat coachroof was designed with solar panels in mind, an ideal option for an owner who wants to reduce their carbon footprint and create an eco-friendly yacht.
