Overview: Infinitas is the 300 foot (91.5 meter) yacht concept. The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The two major features of the yacht asserted by this closed loop infinity symbol are achieved by carving out stern and mid section elliptical deck constructs.

A central structural “spine” holds the loop together allowing the yacht’s superstructure to seamlessly flow within itself. The added benefit of “infinity” is the realignment of traditional functional areas.

Within this realignment, the main deck living room, and dining room are detached. The dining room moves forward and is separated from the living room by a massive pool deck.

This new deck location allows for the first time, direct access to dining room and kitchen for expanded activities, in combination with the living room/salon.

There are three methods to traverse the pool deck. First is a direct outside bridge / walkway which bisects the pool itself. This walkway has underwater openings in its support system, allowing swimmers to dive from one side to another. The pool has the option of being covered for larger venue needs.

The second method of crossing the pool deck is an overhead sky bridge which connects to the main stairs and elevator. The “sky” bridge is clear glass floor and ceiling allowing natural light to penetrate the pool below.

The third method is through a lower level lounge which features glass portals into the pool.
The main level contains the two aforementioned decks, living room, dining room, kitchen, storage, and bow deck (with helicopter pad).

The interior design of the space, and others, reflects an intense minimalist palette with a dash of attitude.

The main salon also features generous 12 foot ceiling height and fully glazed walls creating an island within the yacht.

The second level up is reserved for a series of guest suites and secondary bow deck. The owner’s suite occupies the third level with “sky bridge,” pilot house, and upper deck.

All decks below are currently designated crew quarters, storage and mechanical, engine room activities.

Infinitas is designed to accommodate 16 guests and crew.

Overview: Najade is a large, modern and fast vision of the actual decks house performance cruisers.

Important is clean, well-organized deck, all captive winches are covered under the main deck with an easy access for maintenance, anker and mooring gear is also hidden under the fore deck. A large tender is sheltered in the aft garage at the transom.

The decks house is not recessed as on many boats at that size. Here the main deck has one level. The amount of space differs from other yachts in her range that shows the main salon with its indoor/outdoor concept, providing as much as possible light into the salon by large, full height windows and an amazing sky light roof.
As a standard, the main helm station is on the sun deck, but if the captain needs to steer from inside, a fully equipped wheel house is in front of the dining area. Further the sun deck incorporates a 4 person jacuzzi and sun beds for lounging while enjoying the sail.

The inner general arrangement of the lower deck offers besides a spacious crew area four generous guest cabins with en-suite bathrooms, a luxurious owner’s suite with a dressing room as well as his and her bathroom. Furthermore a comfortable TV lounge and a gymnasium take care of guest entertainment on this deck. The interior of the main deck provides an airy salon area and a forward dining next to buffet and bar.
The unusual full height windows to both sides of salon and dining allow the surrounding elements of sea, wind and sunlight to flood the space and to complete the interior philosophy with its natural beauty.
