APEX 850 // Royal Huisman // Malcolm McKeon

Royal Huisman and Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design unveil APEX 850 - a concept for the world's biggest sloop-rigged sailing yacht in the world.

Biggest yacht in the world with sloop rig incoming? Royal Huisman built two of the largest sailing yachts in the world: SEA EAGLE II and ATHENA. Even Royal Huisman’s subsidiary Rondal that is next to the shipyard proved that they could build massive sailing rigs made of carbon fiber. With designer Malcolm McKeon is a very renowned designer involved who created excellent modern sailing yachts.

The air-draft of the low-profiled APEX 850 is 107 meters. The overall length of the yacht is 85m, while the size of the waterline is 79 meters. The beam of the aluminum hull is 15 meters.

APEX 850 will have diesel-electric propulsion with an optimized energy management system—the twin propellers also working as hydrodynamic generators to recharge the batteries under sail. The battery bank Is large enough to support the hotel functions over the night without the use of generators.

Malcolm McKeon:

“When working at these scales, comfort and performance need never be compromised. Our evolution of the APEX 850 has allowed us to look beyond finding an ‘acceptable balance’ to focus, instead, on a heightened and indeed optimized partnership between each of these integral aspects of the concept.”

Sail System

The sailing system can hoist the mainsail and the blade head sails within just a few minutes. Below the deck is a giant spool to store the 2.800 sqm code zero. The crew can control the sails via touch screens and remote controllers.

Odin Yacht Joe Ricketts

ODIN // Joe Ricketts

Joe Ricketts created the 80m motor yacht concept ODIN

Joe Ricketts created the 80m yacht ODIN with the purpose of research, filming, and luxury cruises in mind. The owner and the scientists, respectively, the documentation film team, have their own areas. Another option could be to charter the yacht to philanthropists to follow adventures the boat was taking in the past.

The large open aft deck offers a helipad and storage for two tenders. The outside area of the upper deck aft invites with a lounge that features a fire pit. ODIN has three pool areas: One at the bow, one aft, and another pool is on the sun deck is surrounded by sun pads and a bar in the direct near.

Another fantastic design feature is the cantilevered deck with panoramic views.

Project 404 Royal huisman Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design

RH404 // 60m Sloop // Royal Huisman

Royal Huisman works on a 59.7m sloop-rigged Malcolm McKeon-designed sailing yacht.

This 60m sloop will be incredible. During the superyacht press tour 2019, organized by the Yachting Holland Group, Royal Huisman showed us the 1:1 mockup of the Malcolm McKeon design made of plywood of the rear half of the yacht, including the furniture of the deck salon – absolutely impressive. Unfortunately, only this profile sketch as a little teaser is allowed to show, but you can see the very modern lines.

A lifting keel reduces the draft to reach shallow waters; the twin rudder configuration shows: Here is a new challenger at regattas.

Christian Liaigre styled the interior of RH404 (project name shipyard) aka MM597 (project name designer).

Hull turning

The first big is done. Royal Huisman turned the hull of Project 404 – now the deckhouse can be mounted and the yacht is going to the outfitting stage with interior and all the equipment can be installed.

Malcolm McKeon comments:

“The hull turning at Royal Huisman this week signifies a pivotal stage in her build and that this construction has remained on schedule, despite
the worldwide pandemic is testament to the yard’s strategic, meticulous approach and the incredible dedication of the entire team.”

Guillaume Rolland of Studio Liaigre adds:

“The Liaigre team is extremely proud to be attending this very important milestone. We were able to appreciate from all angles and under daylight this 60-meter aluminum jewel.”

MM38 // Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design

Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design unveils the 38m sailing yacht concept MM38

The MM38 has been developed in collaboration with the brokerage company Ocean Independence for comfortable bluewater sailing but with a generous sail plan to perform also in light winds. The deckhouse lines are very close to the design of the 33m MISSY. The hull is also inspired by the previous award-winning designs RIBELLE and LIARA. The sloop-rigged boat welcomes up to eight guests in four cabins—furthermore, crew accommodation for up to six people. A telescope keel reduces the draft from six meters to four meters.

The forward area has a bay for a tender with a length of six meters that can be transformed into a shaded dining cockpit. Side ladder and platform makes it easy to enter the yacht from the tender. A fold-down swimming platform is at the stern.

“A fixed bimini with raise and lower side screens provides all-weather protection to the main cockpit, and the bimini top itself has a retractable ‘sun roof’ panel.”

Leaf Lorenzo Squadrito Yacht Design InMind


LEAF - designed by Lorenzo Squadrito of InMind Design to follow a human's needs.

Alongside Project SNAKE, also LEAF is a shortlisted project by INMIND DESIGN at THE INTERNATIONAL YACHT AND AVIATION AWARDS.

Designer’s comment:

“People nowadays are always attempting for THE Progress in each single feature of their present ;
But could this be involve risks? Is it possible to assumpt that perhaps all of us are going to pass the ‘tipping point’ and in those moment we will wonder if it would have been better for us to get back to the woods-lifestyle? Just like in a Gaussian curve.
My yacht Leaf is a the iconic response to this thought. Because the design must follow the human’s needs.

The aim for this project was to create an innovative proposal that remained feasible on a practical level, both in terms of construction and commerciality. This refit project evolved from the decision to keep the superstructure of the yacht entirely unaltered while reinterpreting its lines with a fresh, modern twist and strong sense of personality, using as a guideline the express wishes and constraints of the owner.”

“Leaf presents numerous innovations which include; replacement of the classic tinted windows with clear glass thereby obtaining visual continuity between hull and deck; widening the ‘cover’ that forms the upper part of the bow which slims the line; environmental sustainability and nature as cardinal elements; the lounges on the main and upper decks to come to life along the sides while the central areas will appear free to as to create a perception of more ample space.

Here the desire is to return to use of space which is not purely rationalistic but rather designed for the exclusive contemplation and aesthetic appreciation. Another noteworthy element is the inclusion of areas dedicated to virtual reality, these can be used not just as a means of passing the time, but with greater advances in the field of technology, could one day permit to an alternative approach to working life.”

Snake Lorenzo Squadrito Yacht Design InMind

SNAKE // InMind Design

Lorenzo Squadrito of INMIND | DESIGN created project SNAKE that has been shortlisted by THE INTERNATIONAL YACHT & AVIATION AWARDS 2020.

The design of project SNAKE features smooth exterior lines and large glass surfaces to connect the outside feeling into the interior of the yacht.

Designers explanation:

“The brief for INMIND | DESIGN was to create a new kind of yacht design. The first aspect was considered through the owner’s cabin which is usually developed lengthwise, but for M/Y Snake this has been expanded upon across the entire upper deck with an igloo-like glass structure.
INMIND | DESIGN’s signature style is strong with this project. The wide glass panels allow the perfect mix between the interior and exterior and combine perfectly with the wider environment. The glazing creates the light and airy feeling throughout the interior and highlights the most important designer of the world – mother nature.

This kind of solution is perfect for an owner who doesn’t like staying in the same environment and would instead prefer to experience different environments when possible whilst sailing around. Each town, island, and sea become his walls and each sky becomes his ceiling. The inspiration behind this design was a goal to create a bond with the natural environment and thus encouraging the protection of it.”

“When a design is created, the environment around it is changed, since it is assumed that “architecture” must “impact” with the environment around it. INMIND | DESIGN think differently: every architectural element must not transform the environment but rather should try to enhance it or simply give it importance.

Architecture and environment are therefore two very different elements. But precisely because opposites must communicate to create a better landscape: design work cannot be closed in on itself, it cannot fail to ignore the relationship with its surroundings.

The real solution to the ecological problem will only be obtained by radically changing our vision of the project: aiming for quality and not quantity, applying new less invasive construction techniques, and developing new technologies that limit energy consumption.”

Another design contest entry by INMIND DESIGN is Project LEAF.

Spirit 111 Sailing Yacht

Spirit 111 - Retro Classic Yacht with Incredible Interior

The Spirit 111 is an awesome retro classic sailing yacht with incredible interior design and state-of-the-art technology.

The Spirit 111 combines the grace of classic sailing yachts but with modern technologies like hybrid propulsion with a 100 kW electric engine by Torqeedo, supported by four 40 kWh BMW battery packs. The boat can run about 30 nautical miles with the electric drive. The electric motor also works as a hydrodynamic generator to regenerate the batteries while sailing. Furthermore, there are two 25 kW generators as a backup solution.

Nigel Stuart, Managing Director of Spirit Yachts comments:

“It is important to the owner that he can spend the majority of his time away from marinas enjoying sailing and anchoring in bays. Using electric propulsion to regenerate the batteries whilst sailing, the yacht will be able to operate for up to four days at anchor without having to plug into shore power or start the two onboard generators. When the yacht crosses the Atlantic, as long as there is adequate wind, she will not need to consume any fossil fuels.”

Sean McMillan – founder and head designer at Spirit Yachts, created the elegant exterior design of the sailing yacht.

A wave-styled interior design

This kind of interior design is far away from this world and has been penned by Rhoades Young and the shipyard’s in-house team.

Rhoades Young partner Jonathan Rhoades commented:

“It was a joy to work with a client with an absolute passion for design. The brief was a combination of his love for furniture and organic architecture. The client had recently visited Antelope Canyon in Arizona and this was the catalyst for the idea of the warm soft flowing walls creating unique focal points within the room. Whilst appearing simple these twisting forms are co-ordinated perfectly with the beautiful skylights above creating a calm and tranquil ambiance. These elegant forms not only twist and peel to create counters but uniquely create the intimate backdrops for the highly detailed ‘steam pieces’ which blur the line between furniture and sculpture. It has been an absolute privilege to work on this project with the client and the craftsmen and women who created it.”

The systems of the hotel functions are optimized for low energy consumption. The Webasto air conditioning and heating system have two eco modes (and a maximum as well). The system is efficient enough to run the air conditioning also in the tropical areas over the night. Hot water is stored in a high density insulated tank.

The freezer and the fridge are custom-made equipment and using high-efficient compressors and CryoGel to hold very low temperatures.

Y9 Sailing Yacht Y Yachts Tripp Design

Y9 // Y Yachts

German shipyard Y Yachts unveiled the new Y9 - a 90 feet/27m sailing yacht

The new Y9 is based on proven partners like Tripp Design (exterior and naval architecture) and Norm Architects (interior). They created the awesome sailing yacht model Y7. There is also another interior design studio involved that worked with Y Yachts in projects like the Yx7 or the research vessel Eugen Seibold – The UK-based studio Design Unlimited.

As the other yacht models, also the Y9 is made of carbon-fiber to enjoy fast cruising or start with excellent opportunities to win some international regattas.

Y Yachts founder Michael Schmidt explains why to be under 100 feet:

“Actually, customers were interested in 100 feet in length. However, from this size upwards – in my experience – yachts become disproportionately expensive because many custom-built components have to be installed. With our expertise, we have therefore implemented the comfort of a 100-foot yacht on a length of 90 feet. With our new Y9, we are entering the superyacht segment.”

Interior design by Norm Architects and Design Unlimited

The owner’s cabin in the stern area is more an apartment that contains a private salon, a bathroom with a double sink, a dressing room, and a separate shower. The project stakeholders also have an eye on an extra-large crew area with storage and a crew lounge. Owners can choose between two different interior layouts that are based on this interior concept.

The design studios created a “soft-minimalism” Scandinavian style with oiled oak and grey fabrics.

Katrine Goldstein, Managing Director of Norm Architects comments:

“The Y9 already follows the award-winning Y7 in its design, but is much more complex and goes deeper. The Y9 will also be a luxurious retreat to get away from the constant stimulation that our everyday lives bring. Mark Tucker, founder of Design Unlimited adds: “Clients will appreciate the authenticity of our design and the sustainable materials we recommend. People are increasingly orienting themselves towards nature: taking from nature and giving back to nature. This principle is particularly pervasive in the luxury market.”

La Datcha Yacht Damen SeaXplorer

LA DATCHA // 77m Damen SeaXplorer

LA DATCHA is the name of a Damen SeaXplorer motor yacht in a 77m version.

Damen Yachting launched the new luxurious expedition yacht LA DATCHA in July 2020 at the facilities in Vlissingen in the south of The Netherlands. The delivery of the yacht is scheduled for September 2021 after the sea trials. New build and charter clients of Amels and Damen have the opportunity to visit the ship during a private showing from 17 – 19 September – by invitation only.

LA DATCHA is the second one of the SeaXplorer-series after the launch of a 62m unit.

The yacht has been customized to the owner’s requirements and will be a base for heliskiing in remote areas. A hangar hosts two helicopters. The operation area on the yacht is fully certified for helicopters up to 4,000 kg. Furthermore, LA DATCHA carries two snowmobiles, a submarine for three passengers, rescue tender/VIP tender, two expedition ribs, diving support tender, and wave runners. The yacht has an autonomy of 40 days.

“The Earth is so big and our life is so short, so we have to explore as much as we can,” commented the owner. “And the SeaXplorer project is just perfect. I fell in love with the shape, the design. Don’t forget that this is the one yacht with two helicopters, so you can really go further into the mainland. You can see the bears. You can see the animals. You can heliski. Any kind of activities, fishing and so on. With two helicopters you have absolute freedom to explore any remote territory as deep as you want.”

The yacht features an exterior design by Azure Naval Architects and interior design by Vasiliy Shprits, who is also involved in the owners’ residential projects.

Are you interested in testing this vessel? Oleg Tinkov – the owner of the yacht is also the founder of the holiday home company with the same name. The ship will join the “fleet” in 2020 with accommodation for up to twelve people in two master suites, two VIP suites, and two guest cabins with ensuites and walk-in garderobe. The weekly rate is EUR 690,000 + 30 % expenses (APA).

The yacht will start a one-year world tour from Greece, Seychelles, Madagascar, Thailand, South Kamchatka, Kuril Islands, North Kamchatka to Alaska, and the Galapagos Islands.

“I’ll be really excited to have this boat the first time in Kuril Islands and then Kamchatka in 2021,” the owner continued. “That’s a real excitement because I’ve explored Kamchatka quite well with the helicopter but it would be quite nice to explore it from the shore, more remote territories and see the far east of Russia and then continue on to Alaska. From there, we can go on and do so many things.”
