DynaRig sailing yacht and support/companion vessel with sharp lines: Project LOTUS

Project LOTUS comes as a 70m shadow vessel idea and as an 88m DynaRigged sailing yacht with almost the same signature to show “we are one team”. In my opinion, the ultimate charter experience with a luxurious sailing yacht and a toy transporter for entertainment.

Involved in the projects are the design studio ThirtyC and the DynaRig specialists Dykstra Naval Architects. The DynaRig is proven on Maltese Falcon and Black Pearl. It appeared as a concept by German engineer Wilhelm Prölß in the 1960s. Dykstra did further developments for the Maltese Falcon rig to realize this concept.

The extensive foredeck of the LOTUS sailing yacht turns into a swimming pool, shaded by a canopy, or transforms into an open-air cinema. Furthermore, there is a tender garage for two boats.
