Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design (SEYD) used this year’s Monaco Yacht Show as a launch pad for one of its most impressive yacht concepts to date. The 120-metre motor yacht, named Nature, “transcends the traditional parameters of status and grandeur”, said the design studio.
Inspired by the geometric shapes and lines in nature, it cuts an impressive figure on the water with towering, multi-storey windows, a balanced profile and sharp, angular features.
“Nature becomes one with its environment and everybody aboard Nature will immediately feel the freedom to be who they really are,” added SEYD on the release of its designs.
Nature accommodates up to 18 guests in eight luxurious state and VIP suites as well as an expansive owner’s suite located on a dedicated deck, which leads up a dramatic circular staircase to the Panorama deck, spread across more than 900 square metres.
Those with a taste for adventure will no doubt gravitate towards the upper deck observatory at the bow, featuring a floor-to-ceiling window on each side which immerses the viewer in the yacht’s natural surroundings without distraction.
Functionality on board stems from a smart layout, considered flow of movement for guests and crew, and fully customised furniture. The studio’s designers have allowed for a diverse range of uses and cruising plans onboard Nature, for both business and pleasure use, large social gatherings and intimate privacy, and long-range cruising as well as a base from which to enjoy a particular destination.
Tapping into the trend for wellbeing on board, there is a spa deck as well as gym and novel swimming pool at sea level. Perhaps most unusual for a superyacht is the design’s climate-controlled, fully-functional Inner Garden, within the owner’s suite.
One of the key priorities for SEYD was to create a design that is technically feasible, working with naval architects to combine aesthetic beauty with practicality for construction and operation. Featuring a beam of 15.4 metres and 4.0-metre draft, Nature would span a volume of 4,950gt, built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
The superyacht would be operated by a crew of 50, with space in its large tender garage for a 10-metre limousine, a 10-metre sport tender, a further luxury tender, two crew tenders and eight jetskis.
