This Concept Megayacht’s Infinity Pool Is Bigger Than Most Day Boats – Robb Report

Asquared Naval DesignFluyt’s new megayacht concept may bear the same name as Dutch sailing ships of the 16th century, but it is a radically futuristic vessel.

Spanning 360 feet from tip to tail, the magnificent behemoth pushes the boundaries in design, propulsion and amenities. It comes just a year after the British start-up – not to be confused with Asquared Engineering, which also works on superyachts – revealed an equally disruptive superyacht concept called Cube.

Fluyt is full of long, flowing lines and a sharp, pointed arch that together create a unique teardrop silhouette. Sporting a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure, the tri-decker is reminiscent of the golden age of Dutch shipbuilding, according to the designers.

“Her distinct exterior is an unexpected symbiosis of a modern minimalist hull and ancient fast-sailing ships,” said Andrey Gusev of Asquared. Robb Report in an email.

Fluyt has a giant infinity pool out back.

With a width of 60 feet and an interior volume of around 4,000 GT, Fluyt is not short on space either. Asquared hasn’t shared the interior layout, but it will likely offer more than a few cabins.

The upper deck features a gigantic glass-bottomed infinity pool aft that appears larger than most day boats. It is cleverly integrated with the main deck below so that the water connects the two spaces. Forward, meanwhile, the unusual self-contained wheelhouse has been deliberately separated from the owner’s deck to give sailors more privacy.

Not to be outdone, the main deck is outfitted with plenty of spots for lounging, as well as a touch-sensitive helipad forward for easy comings and goings.

Details are sparse when it comes to propulsion, but Gusev says the ship is hybrid. It is also equipped with over 1,500 square feet of solar panels that can harness the sun’s energy to power electric motors.

Who would have thought that an old-school Dutch sloop would inspire such a modern pioneer?
