UK yacht designer, Andy Waugh has unveiled renderings of his latest superyacht concept, Epiphany.
Measuring in at 130m LOA, Epiphany hosts a range of notable features and a distinctive design, with a unique silhouette and bold exterior that's enhanced by the minimum use of exterior styling lines and structures.
Waugh said of the design, “Epiphany stands out from the crowd, not only because of its unique and distinctive aesthetic, but also because of the layout which limits crew areas to the very upper and lower decks. This allows a great deal of freedom to optimise the guest accommodation, which in many ways is uncomplicated and in some areas conventional.”
The main deck follows the conventional superyacht layout that Waugh speaks of, housing the yacht’s communal areas aft, along with the main swimming pool and sun lounging area, which converts to a helipad when required.
The main deck also houses two additional VIP cabins along with a further eight guest cabins forward. The deck has low bulwarks along its entire length, with floor-to-ceiling glass which is used to create an enhanced feeling of space and light.
The bridge of the vessel is situated on the upper deck, where a fold-down wing is utilised to retain the pure aesthetic of the rising bulwark. Aft of the bridge and main central lobby is an owner's library and balcony that overlooks a double-height lounge on the expansive owner's deck below, with its stateroom featuring skylights and high ceilings.
A private foredeck also makes up part of the owner's deck, with seating areas and a Jacuzzi. There is a private cinema aft with adjacent office space for personal assistants or staff members to work in when visiting the boat on business.
Below the owner’s deck is a VIP deck, housing four large VIP cabins with private balconies. The deck also features a guest cinema and gaming area in a full width VIP lounge as well as a fully equipped gym and spa. The main bar opens up onto the aft deck where there is an al fresco dining area.
The lower deck then houses a beach club and tender stowage, along with an additional cinema, dive room and crew accommodation towards the bow.
Crew areas, including a dedicated officer’s mess, security office and crew cabins for forty staff are found on the lower deck.
