Superyacht designer George Lucian has revealed his latest concept for a 70m/229ft explorer yacht called FATA MORGANA, featuring his signature cubist style.
As a yacht raising awareness of climate change and fully prepared for it, E/Y FATA MORGANA is designed with an appearance inspired by the icebergs, rocks and snow of the arctic environment, she would be built with an ice-class hull with a swimming pool and helipad on the main deck aft, a telescope or observatory on the bridge deck and an iceberg-like superstructure made of glass, offering guests uninterrupted views of the surrounding environment from a climate-controlled interior.
The accommodation within would sleep up to 12 guests and 18 crew for expert service and efficient operations in some of the world’s remotest regions.
The engines installed would ensure that FATA MORGANA had an extensive cruising range, reaching 7,000 nautical miles.
The explorer yacht’s most unique feature however is the kite sail for smooth navigation, and she would be equipped with devices that would constantly monitor the ocean’s temperature and composition and transmit the data to environmentally interested international organisations.
Other striking concepts from George Lucian include the 65m/213ft M/Y ROSWELL and sailing yacht ORIGAMI which uses see-through sail sections and the cubist style to create a luxury yacht that truly appears as though it has been folded.
