YPI and H2 Yacht Design partner on new Project Raptor superyacht

Yacht brokerage firm Yachting Partners International (YPI) has teamed up with British studio H2 Yacht Design on a new 105m concept.

Project Raptor was first unveiled at last month’s Monaco Yacht Show and is said to be open to customisation. Buyers are able to alter her entire profile above the main deck without compromising the hull, and are also able to extend her by up to 15m in length.

Jonny Horsfield, the owner and creative director of H2 Yacht Design commented, “The combination of commercial-based engineering and construction with superyacht design is an attractive one – offering both time and cost savings.”

Standout features on board Project Raptor include her “imposing and graceful” large fixed balconies, as well as a Jacuzzi and helipad on the bow. Her superstructure then offers 270-degree views out to sea from the top four decks.

At Monaco Yacht Show, VR goggles allowed visitors to take a virtual tour on board Project Raptor to alter the lighting, swap the artwork on the walls, and get a closer look at the dimensions of the yacht.

Mark Duncan, commercial and marketing director at YPI, believes that the technology is highly useful in attracting new clients, commenting, “This is not a gimmick. This is using today’s technology to take the uncertainty out of building your own yacht.”
