Impossible Productions (now known as Gill Schmid Design) in New York City and Tim Dempers Studio in Cape Town have collaborated to design a 328-foot explorer yacht.
The super explorer’s goal is to combine private-yacht luxury with the benefits of an oceangoing commercial vessel, according to Gill Schmid Design.
The vessel includes a cargo deck for shipping container stowage or for cars and yacht tenders, depending on an owner’s preference. The cargo area is set between two large, circular accommodation areas (called “pods”) with 360-degree views. The forward pod contains the control center of the yacht, while the aft pod is for the master stateroom.
There is also a helipad aft and “private sunken sundecks” for outdoor lounging.
