Design Unlimited reveals project Vora

Design Unlimited has unveiled details of a striking new superyacht that it has had under development during the second half of 2013.

Project VORA is a 72m M/Y with a distinctive performance profile. As is desirable for a yacht of this class, the upper superstructure length is contained within the central fifty percent of overall length, allowing Design Unlimited to create a sleek, well-proportioned profile.  However, the studio took a fresh look at how the main deck is utilised and took the opportunity to create generous, easily accessible open spaces at main deck level. The positioning of the superstructure played an important role in this process, allowing the creation of two distinct external entertaining spaces fore and aft.  This approach to the layout has delivered exceptional levels of privacy and versatility.

When sitting aft, the owner and guests will enjoy a large lounging area looking out over the stern. A central pool and ample space for dining will make this a favourite family area, ideal for leisurely meals, sunbathing and watching those enjoying the yacht’s watersports equipment out on the open water.

Forward of the superstructure is the owner’s deck; a more enclosed, more peaceful space, with direct access from the owner’s suite, ideal for those looking for a sanctuary from the more energetic pursuits taking place elsewhere.  This is the place for individuals and groups looking to escape the outside world for a few moments, with perhaps a good book and a long drink.

The interiors will include Design Unlimited’s trademark floor to ceiling glazing in the main deck saloon and master stateroom, allowing these spaces to feel like extensions of the external decks and opening up the possibility of dramatic lighting displays for those viewing her from neighbouring yachts or from the shore.  The open space theme is further enhanced by the introduction of a 'one way' glass floor to the main saloon, giving a completely uninterrupted view of the pool and sunbathing area below.

With further attention to detail, the tender garages have been positioned such that the tenders are launched and can be accessed amidships, ensuring the privacy of the owner and guests when they are enjoying the aft deck areas.

For a yacht with an unashamedly assertive profile, Project VORA is in fact a highly family-friendly vessel with spaces and facilities to meet the needs of guests of every age and the ability to satisfy those looking for either an active or relaxing stay on board. Design Unlimited is continuing to develop the concept and will be presenting it to interested parties over the coming months.
