The silvery exterior integrates the extensive glazing into the matte hull and superstructure to create a flowing, unbroken form. The foredeck is free from balustrades for uninterrupted views and a cleaner, sharper appearance where there is a helipad and an abundance of space for sunbathing. A ‘stepped’ appearance is created by the six visible decks to the aft, each providing alfresco seating as well as sun loungers, sunpads and dining areas spread across the various decks. However the main deck aft pool that flows down the swim platform is one of the hallmark features of concept ACIONNA and is sure to be a favourite feature with guests.
There are eight decks in total and from the interiors, the floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with natural light and connect guests and visitors to the breath-taking views. The massive interior volume can be personalised to any future owner to include facilities such as a 20m/66ft indoor pool, a squash court and a helicopter hangar. The main saloon covers two decks and curved glass creates uninterrupted views of the swimming pool on the main deck aft.
Compared to conventional designs, her propulsion system will take up a greater amount of space on board and will use hydrogen, which provides a greater cruising range than electrical batteries and is currently being trialled in cruise ships and ferries. By using renewable energy sources to generate the hydrogen, M/Y ACIONNA would have zero impact on the environment which opens up the possibility of cruising in environmentally sensitive regions.
At 175m/574ft, ACIONNA would be larger than mega yacht ECLIPSE (owned by Roman Abramovich) and 164m/538ft luxury yacht FULK AL SALAMAH, only beaten by 180m/591ft AZZAM which holds the title of the world’s largest motor yacht.
