Aras Kazar, a yacht designer from Turkey, has unveiled a new project — a concept of a 66-metre trimaran NOY, Boat International reports. The project was named after the vessel that, according to the Bible, Noah built at the command of God to save his family and all the animals from the Flood.
«Powerful enough to overcome huge waves and also big enough to accommodate dozens of people,» is the description of NOY on the designer’s personal website.
The multihull is unique in many ways. The first is that the width of the yacht exceeds the length — 76 metres versus 66 metres. The almost square shape gives NOY a special stability even in very rough seas. Next, the ark is designed with hydrofoils or foyles. On these wings it rises above the water and soars above it at speeds of up to 24 knots. The drive is fully electric.
The concept is planned to be made entirely of tempered glass. This solution will provide a panoramic view in all areas of the yacht. The roof of the yacht acts as a large solar panel, generating the energy needed for propulsion.
The yacht features six guest cabins, three master suites, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a wellness area with a Zen-style garden, gym and sauna. Also, a full cinema room has been fitted out and a balcony has been made on the aft deck, which can be used additionally as a bathing platform.
«My designs have always been minimalist and futuristic,» states Kazar. — I prefer sharp angles instead of lots of smooth curves. NOY is perfect for someone who already has crazy dreams.»
