80m hybrid explorer yacht with ice class and generous surfaces of glass

Together with Tim Dempers Studio (exterior), Gill Schmid Design (exterior and interior) created the 80m hybrid ice-classed explorer yacht for the dockyard of Dörries Yachts in Germany. The yacht with straight, clean lines and a nearly vertical stem is a construction with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure.

Aft is a touch-and-go helipad that is also a streetball/basketball court and covers the entire outside deck below.

A number of tenders and toys

The vessel features an A-frame crane that is fully integrated into the design (as you can see in the renderings below). This kind of crane makes it easy to launch all the tenders toys. Talking of tenders and toys, the yacht has a large capacity for:

  • Two Triton submarines (3300/3, 330/1)
  • One 12m limousine tender
  • Autonomous underwater vehicles
  • Four Sea-Doo Jet skis
  • 10.97m Damen Interceptor 1102

The large tender garage on the main deck aft also transforms into a party deck when the tenders and toys are in the water.

Inside of the Yacht

The deck with the helipad offers a gym with a great view overlooking the ocean. Moreover, there are spa and lounge areas with TV. The outside space forward has a Jacuzzi, sunbeds, and armchairs with coffee tables.

The full-beam owners’ suite has a private outdoor deck, office, and private dining area for up to six persons. Furthermore, there are six guest suites and accommodation for a crew of 25 people.
