Overview:  To crown with a real flagship their range of high performance sailing thoroughbred, Nauta Design conceived a large dimension sloop, 155’ (47.25m) long, through the consolidated co-operation with the well renowned naval architects Reichel-Pugh.
She is the largest sailing yacht ever designed by Nauta (while the 180 mt. “AZZAM” is their largest motor yacht project, and also the largest private Motor yacht up to date).

The preliminary studies, GAP, are in an advanced stage, being inspired by the request of a client for a super performing 150’.
Water lines, appendages and sail plan were developed, as usual in the Reichel-Pugh / Nauta co-operation, by the California based Naval Architect office, while the general design, the outline, the deck and the interior design were developed by the Milan based design firm.

The hull is a last generation fast sailer with a very rearward max Beam. The water plane B max is conventional, not to increase wetted surface. But close-hauling, the boat is taking advantage of all the water line length with a reduced total wet surface. The summed area of the two rudder blades is similar to a single rudder blade one, but the efficiency is much higher since when the boat is leaning, the downwind rudder blade works vertically in a perfect laminar flow, as if the boat were horizontal on her lines.

The final result is a very aggressive profile with an extraordinary favourable LOA/Displacement ratio, thanks to high tech pre-preg carbon construction, outputting a light displacement of only 120T in dry conditions. To further improve the performances they adopted the lifting keel solution that allows to improve righting moment for super upwind and reaching performances. The very high aspect ratio of the fin keel will considerably improve its lift and eventually will crucially participate to the high performance of the boat. The VPP is foreseeing a 16.5 knot speed on displacement and up to 26/28 knots on planning attitude.

The style of the boat is defined by a very sleek outline, where the deckhouse profile is kept very low and is fairly hidden by the gunwale, which is 1’2” (35cm) high over the deck, offering a safe foothold when walking in leaning attitude. The gunwale is also 1’ (30cm) thick forming at the same time a practical and comfortable seat while sailing and at anchor, using the handrail as a backrest. Beside the elongated deckhouse windows, lightening the salon, the gunwale profile is cut and lowered for 13’1” (4m) to allow looking outside, and at the same time performing as large scupper for more safety. The deckhouse seems “floating” on the deck thanks to a darker inner spacer splitting it from the deck.

On deck the key point of the boat is the shape and the design of the stern. A wide low platform on the water level becomes a sea lounge for the owner whose master is just linked through an angled glassed companionway with sliding door.

The social life centre of the boat is the outside dining / resting area, easily convertible to the different functions of dining table, coffee tables, sunbathing area, all in the scale of a 155’ flagship.

Strand Craft 166 Xhibitionist Superyacht


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The 164 foot (50 metre) yacht has an unusual aesthetic for a boat, with an opening at the front very similar to a car grille, and along the sides the bodywork rises and falls like the curving wheel arches on a classic sports car.

Contributing to the sleek profile of the Strand Craft 166 Xhibitionist is the retractable flybridge and radar mast that retreat into the skin of the yacht when not in use. Both can be deployed independently of each other and are only visible when they are required. The helicopter landing pads also fold away. Additionally the Strand Craft 166 Xhibitionist features two concealed entrances, hiding the stairway to the upper aft deck as well as providing access to the garage, bar and lounge areas.

Concealed beneath the carbon fibre inlaid fore deck of the Strand Craft 166 Xhibitionist is a sun deck equipped with a large jacuzzi, featuring  a built-in bar. Access is through a vertically sliding glass door in the windscreen of the pilot house – where there is additional seating for 8 guests. The pilot house itself opens up to the lounge to provide connection between the driver and the main guest area, and at the same time letting in light from the main windscreen to the spaces below.

The Strand Craft 166 Xhibitionist also features a bit of a party trick. Down below is a large garage which houses a custom made supercar which has a 605 horsepower V8 – unfortunatley Strand Craft don’t go into any more detail than that. Alternativley – or additionally – the yacht’s garage is capable of holding a number of other supercars or other road vehicles for use when the vessel is docked.

The Strand Craft 166 Xhibitionist comes with the option of having upholstery made from an exclusive Japanese Samurai leather. This custom designed material is woven from a bullet-proof textile made of Vectran fibres. Optionally all walls can be covered in Samurai leather to make it a bullet proof yacht. Especially handy if you happen to be an evil genius as well as a yacht owner, and I’m sure there’s a fairly large crossover between the two!

Reversys Boat

Overview: Retractable hardtops have successfully equipped the automotive industry for decades… so why not the boating industry? Reversys Boat was designed from the inside out, using one mechanism to control three different positions to provide security, comfort and protection from the elements when closed… or fun in the sun when open. This modern tech creates an interesting contrast with the craft’s back-set cockpit, radical proportions and overall classic styling reminiscent of North American racers of the 1920s.
