This version has been developed using a pre-engineered builders platform; The hullform can have an Axebow or conventional flared bow.
The latest creation by SABDES Design is for an Eighty Five meter, highly efficient and modern Superyacht.
The design of this yacht can be fully custom, or it can be developed around any Yacht builders 80-90 metre pre-engineered platforms. SABDES has already held discussions with some of the best European yacht builders to further their version of the design on clients demand.
The 85 metre yacht presented in these images shows the first collaboration with such a builder; She has been tailored around Icon Yachts of the Netherlands 85 metre engineered platform and a General Arrangement developed to suit.
Two design options for the Superstructure and for the hull form allow owners to tailor the external look to suit their preferences; The hull form can be an axebow or have a conventional bow, and the Superstructure can have overhanging aft balconies or the balconies can be integrated into the Superstructure. Refer to the page 'SABDES 85 meter Classic'.
Propulsion is based on the system developed for the builders engineered platform, or in the case of a full custom design, SABDES's preference is for a hybrid propulsion system.
Scott Blee the designer comments; “on a recent stay in the Netherlands I conceived ideas for a new design. Spending some time visiting and discussing with yards and brokers gave me a clearer sense of what elements to include; Efficient hullform and propulsion, long and strong lines, minimal detailing, simplicity of build, large glass surfaces, interconnected indoor / outdoor spaces, and subtle styling features, all merging together seamlessly. The decision was made to offer options for her superstructure styling and hullform to show how easily the design can mix up elements changing the look anywhere from classic to more state of the art. Whichever options for her hull and styling are chosen by owners, these yachts will be unique to their builder”.
