Damen reveals Seaxplorer 75 new designs
The famous Italian shipyard Fincantieri presented a brand new superyacht concept on the first day of the Monaco Yacht Show 2018: named MIRAGE, this 106m length superyacht project has been developed in close collaboration with Dutch design studio Van Geest Design. After extensive research on glass specifications and capabilities, Van Geest Design has created this design by sublimating the use of glass with its visual effects. Combined with the overall shape of the yacht, it leads to this extraordinary result.
According to the shipyard, “MIRAGE is the translation of our city landscapes, sky scrapers, gigantic, present, anchored, but then again cladded with reflective surfaces, blending into the landscape, merging with its environment, giving lightness to the building, an elegant presence embracing its surroundings. Unfolding itself, MIRAGE tells a story of time, reflecting the day passing by on a coloured reflective surface offering a peaceful gaze on the travelled distances. Bridge deck forward the area has been designed as a gathering point, interacting with the captain, discussing the next destination while looking forward.” With a beam up to 15,2m and a draught of 4.25 metres, MIRAGE comes in at 4,200 GT. On board, she accommodates 14 guests across seven cabins, as well as a crew of 29.
Tracey-Jayne Canavaggio of Van Geest Design explains the design philosophy behind the superyacht concept: “MIRAGE was designed to bind seemingly opposite and contrary forces being complementary, interconnected, and interdependent. One is to anchor its presence in the landscape, the other is to disappear by reflecting its surroundings.” Daniele Fanara, Senior Vice President Newbuilding Mega Yacht at Fincantieri adds: “Fincantieri yachts are outstanding quality products: the result of a special synergy between advanced technical, design and construction capabilities. The challenge at the heart of every new project is creating something unique as to concept and execution. We believe that Mirage perfectly fits this goal.”
The delivery of projects such as the 134m SERENE in 2011 and the 140m OCEAN VICTORY in 2014 have consolidated the Italian shipyard’s reputation in the industry for delivering high quality builds in the 70m+ range, and no doubt MIRAGE could be the next one to be built!
