Measuring impressive 200 meters in length over all, the breath-taking gigayacht DOUBLE CENTURY concept has been proudly unveiled by Christopher Seymour. Still under development, luxury motor yacht DOUBLE CENTURY concept boasts a strong presence, thanks to sculpted windows with a beautiful sheer line and a graceful superstructure.
Christopher Seymour comments: “Double Century was created to be the next step in the evolution of gigayachts. I want the concept to be something magnificent, respected and admired for what the vessel is, not because of who owns, built or designed her, but for her own merits.”
Spreading over nine generous decks and rising 27 meters above the sea, mega yacht DOUBLE CENTURY concept boasts plenty of unique features, including two helipads and a boarding lounge, as well as a spacious hangar bay that can store a whirlybird as large as an EC135.
