RICH YUNG REPORT: Superyacht Project IKKO

The London-based Stephane Schwarz Studio has revealed the 125-metre superyacht Project IKKO that showcases a counter-proposal to the current market trend by defining a new approach to exclusive yachting.

Her innovative architecture offers a new level of harmony with the landscape: 360° breath-taking sight lines of her upper deck lounge including side transparent floorings, topped by an optimum full view helicopter platform, a 180° panorama on the main deck and a sprawling forward outdoor entertainment space.

Spray on solar-power cells from the exterior faceted surfaces supply energy, amongst others, to Domotics, a cutting edge computing network managing interior-wide automation and communication for appliances and equipment, distributed and remote control of domestic tasks from inside out, enabling more intimacy thanks to a reduction of the crew number.

Over her four decks Project IKKO holds airy cabins overlooking private balconies and adaptable saloons with electro-luminescent sliding panels. With her patented BMT Nigel Gee designed Pentamaran hull she achieves new standards of hydrodynamics to reduce fuel consumption whilst providing more speed and excellent seakeeping comfort.
