Spanish studio Rodriguez Design has unveiled a new 95.6 meter concept called Samana. Designed around a halo-shaped arch running along the superstructure and down to the hull, the design advocates simplicity and minimalism.
The yacht would be built with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure and offer a range of 8,000 nautical miles cruising at 14 knots with a top speed of 20 knots.
“The key idea when developing the vessel was in line with the studio’s current design language: to create a yacht with simple, flowing lines that have character in themselves, without the need to over-style or clutter the yacht with non-coherent elements and surfaces,” studio owner Josh Rodriguez explained.
“In its simplicity, the yacht also transforms as it walks, giving the impression of an ever-changing design,” he added.
The yacht offers a bathing platform with a beach club that houses a bar and a chill-out area. Stairs on both sides of the beach club lead directly to a sunbathing area on the main deck, where sunpads measuring almost six meters extend invitingly.
There is a U-shaped seating area for up to ten people which can be used for cocktails or dining, with shade making it suitable for any time of day.
The main deck also houses an outdoor bar, gym, spa and beauty area.
A spiral staircase in the lobby connects the decks together. There are a total of seven cabins for 14 guests, while crew accommodation is offered for 31 people in 18 cabins.
The crew accommodation is on the lower deck, where there is also a tender storage area with space for tenders up to 10 meters in length, a wide variety of toys (including submarines and skis ket) and a diving room equipped with a compressor.
Samana is equipped with numerous places to dine and relax, including a jacuzzi and solarium on the upper deck and a Portuguese deck on the wheelhouse deck.
The bow can be used as a tactile helipad large enough to accommodate an Airbus ACH 160. Below the helipads, two butterfly doors open and provide access to the service and crew tenders and rescue tenders.
