The designer Thierry Gaugain presents his first solo superyacht concept, named Project L and featuring extremely clean lines. SuperYachtsMonaco will represent the sale.
After ove 20 years of collaboration with Philippe Starck, working on projects such as A, Wedge Too and Venus, award-winning designer Thierry Gaugain has chosen to launch his first ever solo superyacht project. His impressive new concept Project L is an ultra-modern 120m superyacht combining the naval architecture of a sailing yacht with that of a motor yacht.
Smooth lines, changing shape
Project L’s exterior has the smooth form of a beach pebble, and can be fully opened to the elements to create a direct connection with the ocean. But, her shape will be an ever-changing sculpture, thanks to one-way glass treated to match the exterior paint which enables the silhouette to transform according to her location, light, and surroundings.
One impressive feature is the layout on a single deck, which creates a multipurpose open-plan living space and maximizes the function of natural light throughout the interior.
Designed to glide through the water, she promises to achieve best-in-class levels of noise and vibration thanks to a diesel/electric hybrid propulsion system which will also boast fuel efficiency and autonomy for long-range cruising,
On board she will be able to accommodate between 12 and 36 guests and a crew of no less than 40, with additional accommodation for guests and staff available as required.
Among the most impressive features of Project L, we are told about a high-tech underwater media room, a spa and gymnasium, plus a forward-facing owner’s lounge made entirely from glass for panoramic views of the ocean. On deck, Gaugain has put the focus firmly on creating the ultimate outdoor lifestyle with two swimming pools, an extendable beach club, a helipad and drive-in tender garage, plus a futuristic submarine escape pod.
