Overview: The project was developed for an owner keen to explore a number of lateral thinking possibilities within a highly efficient, sleek 100m displacement motor yacht.
The accommodation brief was ambitious, even for a 100m yacht, and particularly so for a low profile, streamlined and elegant yacht: The owner required a full helicopter hangar, a handsome size swimming pool and gymnasium convertible to a disco, a full blown cinema and a dedicated owner’s deck.

The Freivokh team proposed an unusual solution aimed at creating a spectacular guest space which required less internal volume compared with the typical Superyacht array of multiple similar saloons located on every deck. Instead, the Stealth design allocates maximum resources and volume to a single, amazing double height saloon including a library, office and corporate amenities on an open plan mezzanine. All guest areas overlook the aft terraces and water features which have been developed as the key focal point, whilst the helicopter hangar, tender garages and shell doors have been sited at the optimum location for launching and recovery.

Whilst the unusual solution creates a particularly attractive area aft, a Superyacht is expected to cater for a variety of interests at all times. Sporting and intense activity areas are best kept apart from the aft terraces associated with less frenetic activities, so a new area has been set up forward of the bridge, designed to be well sheltered, to incorporate a very acceptable size swimming pool with a current generator, and a handsome gymnasium which opens to the pool. To create the right backdrop, there is a waterfall feature which leads to the elevated deck over the helicopter hangar.

The unique approach does not limit itself to rationalising the different areas – there is extensive use of half levels within the open plan layout, so the transition between the various guest areas is a gradual and interesting sequence, rather than the more usual corridors and segregated stairs.

Placing the helipad and hangar forward may be the ideal solution to avoid interfering with guest enjoyment of the areas forward and aft of the main superstructure, but potentially would mean that the landing pad is simply not wide enough. To overcome this, the Freivokh team has designed the deck to hinge out, which in turn allows the hangar sole to rise level with the hinge-out sections, creating an excellent landing facility which exceeds the stipulated requirements. The forward mast is a telescopic structure, which fully retracts when the helipad is about to be used.

The cinema, placed at tank top level includes an underwater viewing area to enhance even further the scope of enjoyable features available to the guests. Further, the extensive tender garage has been designed to house a pair of 10m Pascoe tenders in addition to a 6.2m general purpose Pascoe shuttle and a 6.2m SOLAS Pascoe rescue boat. The shell doors hinge out to create further beach and landing areas both sides.

The yacht has been designed to maximise waterline length, with an aggressive sectional reverse bow and extended aft platform, optimising displacement speeds and efficiency.

Overview: modern motor Superyacht that utilises the efficiencies of sail power. Atlas has been designed to be used with a combination of motor and / or sails, exploiting the obvious fuel saving benefits. The contemporary 110m 5 deck super yacht form is complimented by the sail arrangement, demonstrating the potential in merging Superyacht volume with the graceful elegance of a sailing yacht.

When using both motor and sails the vessel can cruise easily at 14 knots with a possible fuel saving of between 40% and 60%, coupled with an equivalent increase in range.

Heeling is limited to maintain the comfort expectations and characteristics of a motor powered Superyacht. Stabilisation under power and at anchor is provided by retractable active stabilisers, however, underway the natural damping of the sails offers energy free stabilisation.

Power is provided by a diesel electric power plant and is designed to be totally flexible with the sail power. The diesel electric combination can alone power the vessel to a maximum speed of 18 knots with a range without sail assist of 8000 Nautical miles.

Overview: The concept of this three-wheeled electric kick scooter is to rethink urban mobility, in order to improve accessibility to the city in a pleasurable and easy way.

Three wheels give more stability, even at low speed and with an electric motor in the rear wheel it is both fun and effortless to ride. With all the compactness and portability of a classic scooter, it is a must in the city.

The design is sporty: crisp lines are combined with subtle and elegant volumes. It is equipped with LED lights front and rear. Every function is fully integrated into the design and there is even a dock in the handlebars to connect your mobile phone.  With a dedicated application, it can display all the necessary information: speedometer, battery, GPS

Overview: Designed to accommodate 14 guests in extraordinary comfort and style, Oculus is a long distance cruising yacht capable of speeds upwards of 21 knots.
The exterior styling is representative of the jaw and eye socket bone structure of large oceanic fish and mammals. Featuring a dramatic reverse bow configuration, the yacht’s armature balances an elegant expression of symmetry and structure.

In addition to the bow, Oculus also features a “low rider profile”. This slightly lowered surface allows for new side recreational areas, alternate dockage access and light cruising openness. Lateral retractable side panels close this area when heavier wave action is indicated.

The interior features of Oculus focus on a 12 foot high ceiling in the main salon, a cylindrical double height dining room, central stair and elevator tube, and seemingly anatomical ceiling and floor lighting extensions giving definition to the seating areas.

The second level is the dedicated Owner’s suite. Living areas and bedchambers are divided by a series of four freestanding tubes, which house bath and storage necessities.

In addition to the main common stair, the second Owner’s stair connects to the third level aft private salon and deck / water feature.

The third level also contains the forward pilothouse and separate captain’s quarters. The generous open decks with separate water features are located forward and aft for convenient guest use. Specifications and plans are in the final stages of completion and will be posted at a later time.
