Gill Schmid Design has unveiled concept designs for its latest superyacht project – a 90m ice-class explorer superyacht named Taboo.
Designed in collaboration with Tim Dempers Studio, Taboo is “designed for that special adventure and thrill-seeking owner who likes to explore the furthest corners of the globe with friends, family and like-minded adrenaline junkies”.
She is a high-volume, purpose-built expedition yacht for extreme polar and tropical adventures, with the performance of a commercial vessel. With such a tough exterior, inside she still offers complete luxury for her guests.
On board, she hosts a plane, helicopter, submarine, amphibious car, supercar, and a range of further luxury tenders and watercraft, including a hot air balloon. She also hosts further luxury features including a beach-side nightclub, alfresco banqueting or dual-level party space and a glass pool, lined either side with exotic aquariums.
In a recent press release, Gill Schmid Designs said, “For the owner who entertains on a grand scale, Taboo has it all, with an unprecedented range of spaces that can transform within minutes from private intimate spaces, secluded from the outside world, to party spaces with vast indoor-outdoor facilities – absolute privacy when required, openness, adaptability and an unrivalled experience of the environment and ocean at all other times.
“Taboo’s ‘monochromatic exterior styling’ sets her apart from all other vessels in her range, featuring sophisticated lines, yet keeping the language classic and refined. White one way glazing is strategically used throughout the vessel, giving panoramic views from owner and VIP suites through to vast open party and lounge spaces. Breathtaking views and interactions with the environment are offered, but never at the cost of absolute privacy and seclusion when wanted.”
On board, Taboo features an open double-height tender bay, and enclosed tender garages for vessels up to 14m+ with A-frame lifting arrangement. She also has a retractable and fully enclosed helicopter garage.
According to Gill Schmid Design, “The interiors are as unique as the exterior styling, the adaptability of the entertainment spaces being one key aspect of the designs. The large two floor guest lounge/pool space and beach club with a full-height pool located on the main and upper deck, flanked with aquariums either side, allow for an experience of swimming with the fishes when the ocean outside is just a little too cold.
“Other features included are two Jacuzzis, the extensive guest gym & spa area, a breathtaking cocktail lounge, expansive beach club and pool area, guest lounges and an aft summer house which can operate either as another exquisite lounge space, additional VIP guest quarters, or casino.”
Taboo accommodates 26+ guests and 40+ crewmembers. Her owners are accommodated in a full-deck owner’s suite with private office, lounge and outdoor deck space.
