Is this yacht coming from another dimension? 65-metre yacht concept Roswell by George Lucian
George Lucian is a Monaco-based designer and artist, who presented his latest yacht concept after last year’s motor yacht “Dare To Dream”, the airship carrier superyacht, and sailing yacht “Project Origami”, the mega sailing yacht inspired from the art of origami and traditional Asian vessels.
Starting with the idea of creating an iconic worldwide recognizable yacht inspired from the future, the stunning motor yacht Roswell was born.
The full aluminium 65-metre super yacht, is designed to have full electric running capabilities, supported by two diesel electric engines and large electric panels that covernthe numerous horizontal surfaces of the superstructure of the vessel.
Its shape borrows elements from the military stealth vessels, aircrafts and spacecrafts, and, together with the full electric capabilities, reflective hull surface, patterns, and sharp angles, make the yacht have a very discrete radar footprint, if any.
Unlike its radar footprint, its presence in any harbour will for sure be anything else but discrete. On the bow side of the main deck you can find a large outdoor covered living area, including a beam length swimming pool, a lounge and a dining area. This shall be the main living area of the yacht, being connected to the main salon and the stern deck with large glass doors and walls, giving the sensation of a huge open loft like space.
The bridge deck is located on the upper deck, together with a helicopter platform, and a sky lounge. The yacht can welcome onboard 12 guests together with 12 crew members.
More of the secrets of the origins and materials of this like-never-seen-before yacht lay in its very own name, Roswell.
