Following the recent announcement of the Rorqual concept, Parisian studio MUB Design has now confirmed a second 120-metre (394-foot) steel and aluminium superyacht concept named Stratum, based on the same hull configuration.
Both of the new four-deck designs are inspired by the natural world, with the superstructure of Stratum paying homage to the stratified shape of Japanese rice fields, ocean waves and sandstone canyons.
The tribute to nature continues through to the interior, with a focus on panoramic views and the idea of bringing the outside, inside. Key features include a foredeck helipad, an aft-deck swimming pool and a beach club beneath, but the standout design detail is the two outboard elevators, which connect the upper four decks.
Accommodation is for up to 30 guests, while the crew quarters will allow for 43 staff. Power comes from a twin 1,957hp MTU 16V2000 M72 engine installation that would ensure a top speed of 15 knots.
Like Stratum, the previously announced Rorqual is also inspired by nature; her lines have been designed to resemble whales, the largest living animals on the planet, to achieve a “symbiosis between gigantism and slender curves”.
The two new concepts add to the MUB Design portfolio, which currently boasts the 102-metre (335-foot) Fierce Calibre concept and the 85-metre (279-foot) Moea design.
