An ultramodern 120m super yacht project, Project L, was recently presented at the sector event SuperYachts Monaco from its designer Thierry Gaugain.
Gauguin designed Project L, a yacht of the future, starting from a naval architecture that blends characteristics of both classic sailing yachts and modern motor yachts, with an oval and uniform glass exterior.
A dynamic and multifaceted sculpture
Project L has the compact and aerodynamic appearance of a sword that cuts the sea in two, but behind its granite appearance lies the dynamic soul of a structure that can also open completely outwards.
This yacht of the future is a real sculpture in continuous evolution, and with the help of a special external paint it modifies its silhouette according to the surrounding environment.
Project L can accommodate between 12 and 36 guests on board, as well as a crew: up to 40 people in all.
Inside: open space and privileges
All guest areas are concentrated on a single deck to create a multifunctional open space. Aside from that, Project L includes a high-tech underwater media room, spa and gym. The gem? A crazy owners suite set right on the bow, made entirely of glass for a panoramic ocean view.
Outside: leisures and surprises
Outside, the wonders are certainly no less: guests can take advantage of two swimming pools, an extendable beach club, a heliport, a garage to take cars with them. It also has a special underwater cabin which alone is as big as the whole JetCapsule, the "utility yacht" that I introduced to you some time ago.
The power supply of Project L: yacht of the future, engine of the past
And here we always get to the painful notes: every time I enjoy the vision of a futuristic yacht then I am disappointed by how much it pollutes. In the year when even the "Japanese Chernobyl" Fukushima plans to rise thanks to solar and wind power, I still hear about fossils.
Project L tries to limit the damage, but I have my doubts: the yacht of the future will be powered (again) by a diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system for long-range, "low fuel consumption," cruising. say.
After over twenty years of collaboration with legend Philippe Starck, Project L is Gaugain's first solo concept.
