Next generation yacht design
“…Living close to the water in perfect harmony with the aquatic environment; a seamless experience of the highest quality with loved ones aboard your private yacht…”
Our philosophy truly drives development without compromises. The result is a yacht with a poetic existence within the water, having an excellent inside-out connection to the sea. A fully open superstructure has unobstructed decks and expansive views of the skies, shores, waves, clouds, birds, sea-life, coastlines, and sunrises. Sun and daylight are its meter, cherished for their warmth and tantalizing enlightenment. Looming deckheads cast shadows and offer coolness with the breeze.
Inside atmosphere, mood and emotion are defined by the poetry of space arrangements. To go to the higher deck, towards the sun, is to withdraw in privacy, step by step, to the private dominion of the owner’s quarters. Going down through vast lounges and wide corridors it to lose oneself at each deck with views of distant horizons, while entering spaces of greater shared hospitality. The last descent is through a grand open staircase into a lower deck sanctuary dedicated to wellness and well-being.
The stanza of the design is aesthetical timelessness, where purity of form combines with elegance in proportion. Ultra-bespoke exterior and interior elements will create a quality impression on another level. Imagine the best builders, artisans, and craftsmen, building this yacht for one owner only: providing true value by perfectly complementing the personality of the owner, accommodating his or her art pieces and objects of desire.
“For years, we have had the privilege to present a new yacht concept at the Monaco Yacht Show, to share our vision of the future of yacht design and inspire clients and the industry. For 2022’s MYS edition, we developed Poetry – a new, thematic approach to yacht design. It all starts with the dreams of the owner. For him or her we explore the inner values of space and how we live our lives with a mixture of elements that people normally do not think about. There is poetry behind everything, and all have a story to tell.
This is a poetic concept inspired by the flexibility you find in resorts, where you have private sections, while the beach, spa, dining, and lounges are shared more informally, however you and your guests wish. Design and use of the yacht becomes less formal and more genuine. It is more like ‘home’. We address topics like the emotions of natural state and recomposed materials and living with our personal art pieces in intimate environments. To accommodate this, the design and use of the yacht becomes utterly relaxed and embracing and more like a private resort at sea.
Beyond exclusivity, we see Poetry as subtle, harmonious, dedicated – and personal. Limitations can be overcome by pushing boundaries with more detail, more innovation, more personality, more stories, more fun. Owners nowadays are freer to explore the world than ever. They can be out on yachting trips while working, bringing their families, friends, and entourage along with them. They want to share it with others and have them enjoy it with you. Poetry is the yacht where dreams are made in an inconspicuous way, without compromise.”
Connection with the water is all-encompassing thanks to the seamless connection between interior and exterior, the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and six huge fold-down hatches at the lower deck beach lounge. The large exterior decks culminate in the aft deck exterior beach with infinity pool, slowly descending towards sea level. The extendable swimming platforms offers access to the water and act as a mooring spot for private limo tenders.
Poetry emphasizes ‘‘poetic design” – the philosophy that embraces the dreams, needs, and desires of the owner in a natural way. The focus is on the use of the yacht, for true integration of dreams and desires. The interior layout is based on a mathematical grid, allowing flexibility while avoiding loss of useable space. Careful use of proportions and aspect-ratios has resulted in a pure space experience, maximizing ceiling heights and interior serenity.
The prime real estate aboard, the highest deck, is reserved for the owner’s suite and the owner’s pavilion. One deck below we find private dining with an open kitchen, a large multi-media cinema and an exploration room, for charting routes together with the captain. Lower decks contain VIP and Guest cabins, the wheelhouse, dining & lounging, and extensive wellness, and wellbeing, as well as secure sea-access at the Beach Club.
The bedroom is located aft and offers unhindered views and an endless sightline over the wake. At the exterior deck there is a seating arrangement for an intimate breakfast or lunch. Everything in the owner’s pavilion, from the bed combination to the chairs and rugs, is completely custom-designed and meticulously crafted from the finest and sustainable natural materials.
The private counter current pool for bathing or exercising starts in the bathroom and runs onto the forward exterior deck for ultimate refreshment in the sea breeze. This exterior deck is perfectly fit for a light morning workout, yoga, or Pilates – or just a brief walk to take in the freshness of the morning. The sense of harmony is reinforced by amazing views over the ocean; scenery that can be enjoyed everywhere from the owner’s pavilion.
The open kitchen next to the dining table provides a unique experience for the owner or a private chef to share fresh ingredients like fish and other seafood, prepared on the spot. Adjacent is the exploration room, where the owner and captain can plan the next voyage of Poetry. Integrated media at the wall visually document and support navigation, making this space the virtual control centre of Poetry.
With all blinds closed, there is dedicated focus on the main screen., supported by the the integrated movie theatre system. When the blinds are up, one could easily forget where the interior ends and the outside begins, as both cease to feel like separate spaces: freedom, relaxation and comfort are constant factors.
The VIP suites are focused on openness, luxury, and natural comfort, providing a maximum sense of freedom in a highly detailed personal style setting. Textured carpets made of reclaimed material, fully customized furniture pieces in sustainable woods and the use of multiple textures in wall and ceiling panelling all create an atmosphere of embracing hospitality.
The half-open shower unit, with hydrotherapic rainfall shower head and multiple jets, is located forward and created out of a vividly patterned natural stone. Every detail of the VIP bathroom reflects an innate sense of proportion, flawless workmanship, and authentic craftsmanship.
The aft glass façade can fold away for a true all-fresco experience and open access to the pool deck. Most of the time on board will be spent outside, which means providing excellent hospitality services and comfort is vital for maximizing quality time, whether this involves dining, partying, relaxing, or enjoying poolside drinks at sunset.
The relaxing lounge setting makes this part of the deck great for spending memorable times with family and friends. The inside and outside of this vast space feel connected by the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The lounge furniture has been completely custom-made by the finest craftsmen and is upholstered in soft fabrics with ton-sur-ton piping.
The feeling of natural design is reinforced by custom-made furniture such as the bed, bedside tables, lounge chair and desk with ottoman. The dressing room, connected to the state room by a glass sliding wall, is equipped with exclusively crafted furniture. As with all furniture aboard Poetry, this has been custom designed and is in unison with the rest of the interior.
The sophisticated use of materials, using warm tones and neutral indirect lighting, creates an intimate, home-like atmosphere. The color and material schemes create a sense of tranquillity and unity, amplified by the large wall piece of artisanal mastership opposite the vanity.
These cater for owner and family, loved ones and guests, offering privacy and dedication, like a private resort. The vastness of the greater Beach Club area allows for inviting larger groups; from the shore, other yachts or helicoptered-in special guests, artists, and performers. It is a unique social space to meet and greet families, friends, and acquaintances, and dance the night away.
The epitome of chill is the sea pool, created by lowering one of the hatches under the sea level, extending a filtering bulwark and allowing the seawater to rush in for a truly exciting saltwater dip. At the vide, equipped with a sensational glass art piece on the floor, an elegant circular staircase connects the main deck lounge with the Beach Club.
The indirect lighting behind the rhythm of the wooden ceiling structure provides an atmosphere of focus and dedication. A yoga space, with mats and silk hammocks for aerial yoga to stretch muscles and mind, is located next to a complete workout floor, for a total body workout.
Guests can enjoy amazing views over the seascape outside while getting beauty treatments, facial massages, hairdressing sessions or full massage treatments. Matte natural stone skilfully treated timber wall panelling and natural materials all help to create a relaxing atmosphere.
The experience of the Hamman is heightened using the reconstructed backlit onyx for floor and ceiling, and marble for benches and walls. Both at the Hamman and the Sauna, there is a wall-wide giant flatscreen that can be used to showcase anything desired.
Digital technologies like sensors, cameras, live communication technologies and sail-by-wire systems replace traditional facilities such as wing stations and look-out posts. Much of this equipment is located and controlled from the workstations at the command-and-control centre located under the wheelhouse, accessible by a direct staircase.
Visibility is ensured by the band window in the wheelhouse, further enhanced by solid-state video and image processing technology complementing the essential systems. Widely used technologies, often implemented at a much faster pace than on yachts, where the focus is directed to offering amazing trips in unprecedented privacy – sometimes downplaying the efficiency of the workplace that the wheelhouse essentially is. Integration of all available, proven, and tested new technologies in yachts we see as the future, for the obvious benefits in terms of space distribution are too large to ignore.
