The world renown composer and his family have just finished a superb dinner in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, and are now on the limousine tender en-route to their yacht GLASS. The owner is eager to be on board and to relax. It’s been a trying week: concert schedules, various global flight bookings, and volatile rivalry between the first and second violins, has all weighed heavily on him, and all he wants now is a quiet cocktail with his wife while the grandchildren are tended to and tucked into bed for the evening.

Approaching, with luxury yacht GLASS now in sight, he casts a warm smile as everyone is looking at the glistening reflection of the water on the yacht’s facade. From a distance, the appearance is reminiscent of a floating Japanese lamp, or that of an enormous votive candle. The water lights are on and the entire yacht is bathed in a celestial glow, bringing a shimmering intensity to the warm summer evening.

Pulling up to superyacht GLASS, the acropolis-like stairs are lit, with a soft, ethereal glow while the cantilever of the floor above signifies a warm arrival and welcome to the family.

The group continues into the core of GLASS superyacht and will then be elevated to the next floor. The little ones, excited, notice the darkened sky above and begin to gaze at the heavens and their unfolding.

A homage to the skyscraper and a canvas to the sea; super yacht GLASS is organized vertically by three cubic volumes. Each floor is entirely dedicated to maximizing the amount of living space for guest and crew on board. At the heart of GLASS, similar to the function of a skyscraper core, a 7’x10′ elevator platform that moves freely between all floors, crew pantries, wine cellar, sick berth, laundry, kitchens, and day heads; a perfect consolidation of essential functions.

The unusual nature of a SWATH hull, is free of the conventional restrictions in a mono-hull like narrow and cluttered outdoor space. Like an ancient Mayan temple, the aft deck lowers itself to the water for access to tenders and water sports. This unusually large amount of space can be also reimagined as a private amphitheater. The stairs can also be utilized for the owner to host performances; the aquatic equivalent of the Stairway to Heaven.

GLASS is quite possibly the marriage of a social and environmentally perfect anomaly of nautical architecture.
