HBD Studios has revealed more details about its latest 190m superyacht concept, known as L’Amage.
Designed in collaboration with Christoph Kuhnert of Yacht Naval Architects in Hamburg, L’Amage was officially premiered at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show in September.
She will be able to accommodate up to 30 guests on board, as well as 70 crewmembers, and showcases unique flat-panel satellite technology by Kymeta to replace the traditional satellite domes usually in place at the top of the vessel.
With the option to install flat satellite panels anywhere behind the exterior superstructure walls on board, a much lighter and slimmer antenna mast has can be designed in order to free up prime additional space on the sundeck.
Speaking to SuperYacht Times at the METSTRADE Show last week, Hamid Bekradi, founder of the Milan HBD Studios said, “This project was a challenge to see how far we can take the exterior styling of a superyacht towards a modern and futuristic look, which is still feasible based on today’s available technologies.”
With a background in car design, Hamid explained that he applied a similar design approach to the 190m superyacht, lowering concerns over budget to allow for more freedom “to envision ideas and solutions that normally could not be obtained in a project with tight budget limits”. Once realised, the studio will then be able to “modify and re-engineer” these innovative ideas with a more realistic budget.
He explained, “We know that there might be just a few individuals in the world who can possibly commission the build of a superyacht the size of L'Amage, but the design features and solutions that were created for this project could easily be scaled down and applied on smaller yachts, let's say a 90-metre superyacht or a 75-metre explorer version, for which we already have an interested client.”
L’Amage will be able to reach a top speed of 32knots, powered by a hybrid propulsion system configured with two diesel engines and two gas turbines, giving 95,000hp and a range of approximately 6,000nm.
