The greatest luxury on earth? We believe the best way to spend it is on board Time itself…

Designed by Henry Ward Design, in collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee, Time presents an insight into the future, a 66m explorer yacht which expands upon current innovation and takes a fresh look at the boundaries that can be challenged as our technology and expectations expand. Above all else, Time provides guests with an abundance of unforgettable experiences.

The yacht carries an 18m floating lodge, docked within the aft end of the vessel and designed to blend in as a fixed part of the superstructure. On approach to shallow waters, the lodge can be launched as an independent base for mini expeditions in harder to reach places. On-board is an owner’s cabin, a second guest cabin and open-plan galley / living / dining area. When moored in a secluded location, the aft section of the lodge folds down for direct water access and indoor/outdoor living. The lodge is the perfect tool for you and your partner to break away and explore that extra mile.

Need to get back to the mothership efficiently or perhaps fly in supplies while on longer expeditions? Time will not be against you! The yacht has an autonomous drone housed in a hanger in the bow that is capable of transporting four guests. If it’s not the mothership you are flying back to, just select a destination on a touch screen display and the drone will take care of all the piloting and navigation autonomously.

The Time of your life
Standing 15m above sea level, the sights that can be seen from the sky deck will be truly unmissable. This special viewing platform is accessed from the sundeck which itself is located above the wellness level of the yacht. Here you will find a gym, massage room and sauna. The bar area on this deck leads out to a terrace with hot tub and views forward over the bow.

Need more of a thrill? If you have already taken in the views from the skydeck then why not climb up the inverted climbing wall on its aft face? When you just can’t hold on any longer

you’ll splash back down into the 8m swimming pool below! When not in use, the pool can be covered to create a larger entertainment space for parties and alfresco dining.

The beach club is another impressive area on the yacht. When the 18m floating lodge is not docked, a large protected splash pool is revealed, with the aft topsides of the yacht folding down to maximize available space and creating 190 square metres of deck around the pool. At the forward end is a bar for refreshments, leading through to the toy store and tender garage which, amongst other goodies, features 2x 8.5m tenders.

Time to get technical
Spread over seven decks, Time accommodates a full beam owner’s suite and three VIP cabins on the main deck. Perhaps the most impressive entrance to the yacht is via the starboard side passerelle, which leads directly into the main living area with its floor to ceiling windows and views aft through the glass walled swimming pool.

The bow garage solution presents a unique new concept for the storage and deployment of the yacht’s tenders and equipment, whether it be a high payload drone, for transportation, route finding and wildlife observation, or for a more conventional tender.

BMT Nigel Gee has carried out an initial feasibility study for the naval architecture of this 66m yacht. Time is powered by a twin azimuthing drive system with a total power of 3000kW achieving a cruising speed of 15 knots. She will be capable of a range in excess of 5000 nautical miles at her passage speed of 12 knots.
