Natural explorer

At the Monaco Yacht Show, Dynamiq will present its Global 550 concept, a modern age go-anywhere explorer yacht designed with natural minimalism.

27 September 2023


Dynamiq’s design for the 55-metre superyacht reinvents unrestricted globetrotting and presents a great alternative to similar boats on the market.

It sets a new standard for efficiency with a strong and light all-aluminium hull, powered by two incredibly efficient 625 kW Volvo Penta heavy-duty engines that allow it to easily reach an almost double transatlantic range on one tank, exceeding 5,000 nautical miles.

As a true explorer, she’s highly autonomous, boasting a huge 21,000-litre freshwater tanks and numerous storage spaces throughout the yacht.

The specification includes the latest technologies for ultimate comfort on board. Four stabiliser fins, compared to the industry norm of two, paired with a Hull Vane allow for incredible pitch and roll minimisation, resulting in smooth sailing for the client, regardless of sea conditions.

A low environmental footprint is achieved not only through the use of much smaller IMO Tier III engines and battery system, but also due to the latest filtration solutions for exhaust gases and water treatment.


The standout feature on this superyacht is the special attention paid to nature observation – there are panoramic lounges on every deck (with the highest being up at the crow’s nest), underwater drones and even a telescope.

Other great features include a fully commercially-certified helipad, an exuberant spa area complete with hammam and sauna and a spacious owner’s office on the main deck forward that doubles as an observation lounge. The most meaningful part of this is that everything has been packed into under 500 gt.

Another key feature of this project is the entry of ZROBIM architects, modern residential designers into the yachting world, who have translated their mastery of design on land to the sea in their superyacht interior design debut.

While designing for Dynamiq, ZROBIM architects have focused on playing with the idea of quiet luxury, based on high-end consumers having adapted their priorities and behavior, striving to make choices in favour of a more environmentally friendly and sustainable lifestyle.

In light of this, ZROBIM architects explored the rising trend for natural minimalism. The inclusion of natural elements in the design, such as American oak, wenge and dark Shimo ash, stops the interiors from slipping into cold austerity and makes them cosy, tactile and enveloping.

Since the superyacht is designed for long-term sailing in cold waters, ZROBIM architects wanted this long voyage to maintain a feeling of home in the farthest corners of the world, closeness to the earth and to be associated with comfort, coziness and mental wellbeing.

“The interior was inspired by the shape of a glacier and remote mountain ranges,” designers stated. “For example, illuminated Golden Queen onyx washbasins resemble a glacier going underwater.

“In the interior as a whole, there’s a lot of stone of varying textures. We worked on complex combinations with colour inclusions, such as Arabescato Orobico Grigio and Spider green marbles.”

The individuality and unique mood of the interior are set by art objects made of aged wood and wall decoration with textured wooden panels of various shapes, which, in addition to aesthetics, also have the function of zoning the yacht.

The perfect complements to this natural scene are the views of the sea through the full-height windows and large outdoor terraces, harmoniously combining the exterior and interior of a super-technological and modern facility for sea travel.

Exterior design was executed by the Monaco-based studio Dobroserdov Design, while long-term Dynamiq partners Vripack Design are responsible for the naval architecture and have applied the highest Dutch standards in the engineering of this superyacht.

The construction time of the Global 550 is 30 months from contract signature. The listing price for this BV commercial and fully REG-compliant superyacht is 27,900,000 EUR, which is valid until the end of 2023.

The world premiere of this project will occur at Dynamiq’s stand during the coming Monaco Yacht Show, from 27 to 30 September.
