Valencia-based designer Alejandro Crespo has released his latest yacht concept, the 80-metre (262-foot) Sunset.
Comfort on board was said to be a key priority in the development of this four-deck superyacht. Sunset’s 13-metre (43-foot) beam allows for plenty of interior space as well as a sizeable helipad on the foredeck, which measures nine metres in diameter.
Large, rectangular expanses of smoked glass allow plenty of light into the interior, while the straight lines in the superstructure draw the eye to the vertical bow.
The sundeck is one of the areas that has been most thoroughly developed. Crespo explains that the hardtop would feature glass sections that could open automatically to allow for additional ventilation when needed. On the same level, a fully equipped gym can be found forward.
On the upper deck aft, guests could gather for an al fresco meal, with room for up to 12 people to dine together around a large rectangular table. Once dinner is over, this space could be quickly transformed to host lavish parties.
The main deck aft is also a highly sociable space complete with four sunloungers, two L-shaped seating areas and a bar. However, the standout feature is the superyacht swimming pool, measuring seven metres by three metres and lit up by hidden LEDs.
The final area that Crespo has focused on is the all-important beach club. Revealed via a folding mechanism built into the transom, this spacious area includes two large sofas, another bar and foldout side balconies.
Whilst there are no further details on guest and crew capacity, it is estimated that Sunset can accommodate 16 guests and 30 crew.
