النجم: تصميم جديد لليخوت الفاخرة العلوي
The amazing idea of a star-shaped boat came from a quick sketch of Alex Malybaev (FIRMA agency) on a napkin: why should all yachts look the same in the 21st century?
Now Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee are ready to present project STAR, developed as the world’s most exclusive private hotel in marine industry, raising the bar of yachting and design.
The STAR measures 132 m in length and over 60 m in height, over 3500 sq.m of luxury interior space is provided within the 9000 Gross Tons, whilst a central cluster of 4 lifts provide access across 8 decks. The vessel has been designed with a maximum speed of 18+kts and with a range at 14kts of 5000+NM.
Notably lifts 1 & 3 extend from a sub-marine viewing area within the lifting keel up to a viewing platform on the eighth deck offering unprecedented views down onto the unique form of the vessel itself, as well as providing a range of visibility of over 20km.
James Roy, Yacht Design Director of BMT Nigel Gee concluded, “Historically yacht design has been described as both an art and a science. STAR is a tangible view of a 21st century interpretation of art and science. We are fortunate to live in an era where technology makes the delivery of bolder designs more possible – for clients who are adventurous innovators anything is truly possible”.
