The hybrid superyacht concept with five pools and an outdoor cinema



(CNN) – If you thought you’ve seen it all when it comes to innovative luxury superyacht designs, this new hybrid concept can only prove you wrong.

The 65-meter-long SEE concept not only has a unique exterior consisting of large walls of reflective glass, it also has five swimming pools, including an infinity pool with glass bottom, as well as an outdoor cinema on board.

The vessel was developed by the studio Gill Schmid Design in New York in collaboration with Lateral Naval Architects, and will be equipped with a groundbreaking E-Hybrid propulsion system, with batteries as the main source.

The design team describes the interior, which consists of large open plan areas with convertible spaces that offer them on board freedom and flexibility, as “Transformers in an architectural context.”

The SEE concept seats 14 guests and up to 17 crew members, and comes with a long list of impressive amenities.

The covered lounge, located under the infinity pool, has a 3D outdoor cinema with a large pull-out glass element that transforms the area into a large terrace by the sea when retracted.

The interior of the vessel has a number of informal dining, living rooms and entertainment rooms.

Guests can also take advantage of the spa and wellness area, which includes a sauna, steam bath and hot tub, as well as a yoga studio on board, a beach club and a tender garage full of toys.

The built-in kitchen is designed to encourage shared dining experiences, with the chef’s table, a fermentation chamber, a mushroom laboratory, a sushi counter, as well as a juice and coffee bar and a cocktail lounge.

“The design is based on a sense of like-minded community of family or friends who want to enjoy the journey and experience nature and the environment in a relaxed atmosphere,” says the team at Gill Schmid Design.

With the ability to achieve a top speed of 16 knots and an estimated range of 3750 nautical miles, the vessel will be equipped with batteries that can operate it for six to eight hours at anchor and allow up to three hours of quiet sailing, along with diesel engines specifically for battery charging.

It would take around three years to build SEE if it were to be sourced, according to the designers, who say they have received strong interest from shipyards and buyers since they unveiled the impressive concept.

In March, the design studio Twin presented an ice-class explorer and support vessel concept that was dreamed up in collaboration with the German builder Dörries Yachts.

Meanwhile, Rome-based Lazzarini Design Studio launched its latest project, Saturnia, a 100-meter-long vessel made entirely of dry carbon fiber and equipped with its own private shipyard on board, back in July.
