LUXE et al are delighted to announce that Facheris Design have been shortlisted for a Concept Over 40m Award in The International Yacht And Aviation Awards 2016.
Creating a subtle accord between generous dimensions and a fresh profile, Facheris Design has created the Aqueous 120. Utilizing design in its purest state, the process was a study of form commenced by hand with planning and ideation sketches in the same manner used in car design and styling. The proportions and aerodynamics of the design were then assessed through modelling to achieve a silhouette which is the driving force behind the passion and emotion of the super yacht.
An impressive 400 square meter after deck offers a large infinity pool, a retractable awning covering part of the deck and a double-lounge seat and bar. Integrated are two large garages holding two 11 meter limo tenders, a jet ski, and additional leisure equipment to enhance the ultimate yachting lifestyle. The forward deck includes a large sun pad and jacuzzi, long considered integral features for on-board relaxation. A notable design feature is the transformative capacity of the sun pad, which can be turned into a helicopter landing pad.
The concept promotes a modern use of materials with glass featuring prominently throughout the superstructure and hull, maximizing the amount of natural light permeating each cabin, as well as the salon and entertainment spaces. This expansive visibility creates a synergy between the interior and exterior worlds. Furthermore, the Aqueous 120m will be powered by an environmentally responsible hybrid propulsion system, which will result in fewer emissions. The connection between all the typical elements of a super yacht are integrated into a unique profile that does not compromise the interior volume.
