Summer Luxury Video: Dream Yacht
Irwin Weiner ASID - In my next life, I'm going to have a yacht - and I think it will be the Diamond 70 shown in today's featured design video. The deck levels have been brought right down to ocean level to recreate a poolside experience - smart design. The pool on the lower deck features a transparent LCD hatch (made from a thick resin material).
There's also an "American-style" bar with armchairs, a sauna, and a dive room. And, well, it might be fun to have my own helicopter, too. The Italian marine firm Avadesign has this 70-meter concept by Andrea Vastano, and it's designed to be "sort of" green - aluminum construction, with four decks integrating low fuel consumption and technology in place to reduce emissions from two diesel engines and two electric engines couples with gas turbines.
