Concept yachts designed and released through 2017 and 2018. We will talk about superyacht Nature, superyacht Home, the Gtt 115 by Porsche, the Custom line 120 by Ferretti and more.
Nature by Sinot Yacht Design
Project NATURE features a panorama deck in excess of 900+ sqm. Analogous to the name NATURE also features a fully functional inner garden with climate control. Another hallowed space is the observation lounge in the bow. The yacht has a beam of about 15m. However, the aft area of the main deck has retractable platforms opening the beach club. That must be the most ultimate beach club area to date.
Description by the studio:
“Nature is all about balance: between technology and nature, natural and artificial light, crafted detail and natural grandeur, the inside and the outside, beauty and functionality, openness and privacy. Nature is above all functional, which enables the owner to enjoy both leisure and business, large parties and privacy, small trips and endless journeys.”
Indoor Living Spaces
Guests can find their sleeping places in eight staterooms and VIP cabins. Or they can enjoy a luxurious Spa deck, gym, and swimming pool. For fun outside the yacht, the tender and toy storage has a number of boats:

Dynamiq: GTT 115 by Porsche
35m Hybrid – Only 7 to be built
Firstly, when Porsche designs a yacht, you know it’s going to be special. The GTT 115 certainly looks like no yacht we’ve ever seen. She boasts sleek design, a lavish interior, and all-aluminium frame. She evidently takes her styling cues from the iconic sports car brand.
The GTT 115 is a 35-metre full aluminium yacht. In 2017 she was valued at €13,950,000 and construction was then completed early in 2018. Then listings were published by Edmiston & Company and Northrop & Johnson.
Roland Heiler, CEO of Studio F.A. Porsche, said: “Taking the spirit of high-performance sportscar styling to the high seas, the Dynamiq GTT 115 is designed to appeal to car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance.”
Key features include a vertical prow and a superyacht spa pool on the upper deck. As can be seen, this is situated forward of the shaded al fresco dining area. Guest accommodation is all below decks with a choice of three and four cabin layouts. Porsche design influences certainly include the Pepita houndstooth deck cushions. As can be seen, these are similar to those in classic 1970’s Porsche 911 sportscars.
Furniture and decoration were developed in collaboration with Minotti. Their influence is seen in the Saddle brown and Luxor beige leather. Then there is the carbon fibre detailing, Macassar ebony and Sahara Noir marble.
The first hybrid in the GTT series, yet her top speed is 22 knots. Furthermore, she only consumes 240 litres of fuel an hour, cruising at 17.9 knots. The yard also put the model’s hybrid mode to the test. While the main engines were off, she was powered by two 20kW electric motors. They were accordingly operated by variable speed generators. The GTT 115 altogether proved she can cruise at 5.5 knots silently for extended periods. Afterward, the yard said the yacht’s fast displacement hull “made all the difference”.

MESD 100: Superyacht Concept
By Norwegian Yacht Designer Marius Skjolde
The dream yacht
This is a “dream yacht.” with an elegant profile, stately appearance, and ingenious design. Firstly, the upper deck’s panoramic overhang overlooks the main aft deck with floor-to-ceiling windows. It also overlooks the watersports activities happening around the beach club down below. Furthermore, the space can be separated from the elements with its sliding doors. This creates the perfect setting to enjoy the surroundings in spite of the weather.
It offers several individual social areas with a bar and sea-view lounges. In addition there is a fully equipped gym, spa, sauna, and more.
The sundeck comes with two intended uses. Firstly a semi-open outdoor space where guests can relax under a large retractable bimini. That’s in the family-sized lounge. Then there is the circular Jacuzzi up forward. Conversely, have this deck configured as an owner’s suite on its own private deck. The freedom that comes as a result of such a setup is notable.
The huge sloping aft deck has a 7-metre-long pool and an exposed beach club below. This certainly makes the most of any sunny day the yacht finds herself in.
The beach club itself houses several social areas and comes complete with a bar. Also sea-view lounges and a fully equipped fitness centre with gym, spa and sauna. A second hull opening forward is where MESD 100’s tenders are evidently stowed.

Panta Rei III from Arcadia Yachts
The 18m party boat with the entertaining space of a superyacht without the costs.
The price for an ARCADIA Sherpa without special requests is about EUR 1,796,000 (without VAT).
The Sherpa is not a large yacht with a length overall of just 18m. However, with her towering bow, workboat bridge and aft deck she resembles a survey vessel. But while the Sherpa has a 1,000 nautical mile range, that is not her calling. She is a unique party boat certainly capable of hosting an event for 20-30 people.
That’s thanks to the huge social areas, where Arcadia’s team have been lavish with space.
Firstly, the cockpit is 41m2 and there’s a nine square metre bathing platform. Which, accordingly is just a step above the water
The boat’s radical design perches the flybridge and superstructure right in the bow. Therefore freeing up most of the main deck for the cockpit. There is a huge sun pad facing aft and a series of sofas and tables. It’s as if someone sliced off the upper decks and removed the side glazing.
Sherpa offers a total social space of 63 m2, altogether. This is basically, 44 per cent more than the average 17-18 metre yacht.
The flybridge helm station is exhilarating due to its height and visibility around the bow. There is also room for a plush dinette to port, facing a long cabinet. This contains an induction hob, fridge, dishwasher and other necessities.
Sherpa has 10 speakers around the boat, retractable cleats and pop-up LED lighting. As a result she is a floating entertainment space of impressive proportions.
Toys and Tenders
In addition there is a 23,000-litre tender garage for toys under the cockpit and sofas. With a switch hydraulics raise a large deck section (sofas and all) to the vertical. Therefore, allowing a hidden davit to swing Jet Skis and a tender over the side.
Interior Styling and Accommodation
The finish in Panta Rei III especially includes white leather panelling. The panelling is made of a markedly complex fabric-like laminate. This then mirrors the “silver sand” of the exterior gelcoat. Then there is dark oak so highly varnished that it resembles glass at first glance. The elegant hue of the Rolls Royce iconic Silver Sand colour compliments the all-teak decks.
Social space certainly does compromise accommodation space. However, on the main deck, there is a well-appointed owner’s cabin. This has an impressive marble-clad shower room, consequently making it feel like a spa.
There’s also a narrow twin with a dayhead. However, this can be converted into a seating area for the main cabin if preferred. Dimensions here are more akin to a similarly sized sailing boat. As a result, it is comfortable but not lavish.
Firstly, twin Volvo Penta IPS 600 engines propel the boat. Correspondingly, she cruises at 12 knots and only consumes 43 litres of fuel per hour. Additionally she has a top speed of 22 knots.
Panta Rei III also has solar panels built into the hardtop. As a result she has the ability to operate silently in an anchorage. Furthermore this means there is no need to fire up the generator. These are enough to run everything except for the air conditioning and the induction hob.
|Length over all:||16.81 m|
|Length waterline:||15.53 m|
|Top Speed:||25 knots|
|Cruising Speed:||20 knots (97 l per hour)|
|Economical Speed Speed:||12 knots (43 l per hour)|
|Fuel Capacity:||1,800 l|
|Material:||Fibreglass (hull), GRP (superstructure) and aluminum (veranda)|
|Propulsion:||2 x Volvo Penta IPS 600|
|Water Capacity:||600 l|

Custom Line 120 by Ferretti Group
38.36 metre yacht
Cockpit and Interiors of the Main Deck
The cockpit features an innovative glass door that gives access to the lounge. It is inclined at a 45° angle and, in addition to the usual slide opening of the two glass panels, it has a tilting mechanism so that it can be raised completely up to insert into the ceiling. The door makes it possible to join the cockpit area to the lounge to create a single environment of more than 80 sq m (861 sq ft) covered in teak, with curtains that can be utilized for separation. Another outstanding innovation is the elevation of the lounge floor, which uses a floating floor to provide an unparalleled view of the sea.
The hull windows are large and generous, and floor-to-ceiling windows on the main deck offer direct contact with the sea, thanks to pulpits that take the place of the traditional gunwales. The side windows on the flybridge make it possible to have a well-sheltered panoramic sun deck.
Beyond the formal dining zone, the lobby gives access onto the walkway through a large glass door, as well as below decks and to the master suite. From the opposite wall, there is access to the pantry, also reachable from the outside and then the galley, from which the crew quarters below can be reached.
The pantry also gives access to the navigation bridge. Here, the captain can use the LOOP integrated bridge system created in conjunction with Naviop-Simrad, which has touchscreens installed seamlessly into the dashboard, creating a single direct interface with the ship functions and enabling total control.
The wide body owner’s suite of over 35 sq m is outfitted with a separate dressing room and full beam bathroom with dual facilities, vanity, and a central shower. On request, the owner can also have a panoramic terrace installed.
There are 4 guest cabins on the lower deck. The 2 VIP cabins astern feature a special arrangement of the beds, which face the bulwark to make the most of the view from the large hull windows. The two forward cabins have single beds, to which a pullman bed can be added. All the cabins have an en-suite bathroom with separate shower. The crew quarters forward include a large dinette, captain’s cabin with desk and private bathroom, a hostess cabin, and two double cabins for the sailors, all with private bathroom and separate shower.
Expert use of carbon in the superstructure made it possible to achieve an elegant design of the part of the flybridge that extends toward the bow without the need for supporting props in the cockpit.
The comfort of a flybridge and the sportiness of a coupé also blend wonderfully on the sun deck, a panoramic space to enjoy in complete privacy. It features a relaxation area with whirlpool tub and free-standing furniture, and can be protected from the sun thanks to a retractable bimini top in the hard top equipped with a skylight. An innovative concept enables a direct connection from the flybridge to the forward zone by means of lateral corridors with additional access from the monkey bridge. This feature makes it possible to have a single large deck of 100 sq m. Two sun pads at the sides of the walkway lead to the foredeck, furnished with a large dinette.
At the stern, the patented DMT – Dual Mode Transom system is implemented with the installation of two hatches that conceal the stairs to the cockpit when the ship is cruising, providing an exceptionally clean aesthetic. When the ship is stopped, the stairs pass through the garage door, allowing guests to climb aboard.
From the garage, a tender of up to 5.65 meters and a three-person jet ski can be lowered into the water. Consistent with the Custom Line tradition, there is another garage forward, which can be used to store a 3.25 m tender or a jet ski.
Technology and Performance
Custom Line 120’ installs a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines that generate 2,638 Mhp, allowing a cruising speed of 21 knots and top speed of 25 knots (preliminary data). An interesting option is the economical cruising speed of 11 knots, with a range of up to 1100 nautical miles (preliminary data). Comfort is also guaranteed when the ship is at anchor, thanks to the standard installation di electro-hydraulic stabilizing fins, offering both underway and zero speed modes.
The utmost attention has also been given to acoustic comfort in order to reduce the impact of engines and generators during navigation and at roadstead: Custom Line 120’ features a floating floor and supplementary thermal insulation between the bulkheads and in the ceilings.
