Superyacht Company Unveil Optical Illusion 'Pure' Concept Design

·2-min read

A superyacht company has unveiled a bold concept entitled Pure.

Designed to be ultra-minimalist, Dutch firm Feadship say the vessel comes with such little exterior detailing that it creates an optical illusion to confound the viewer’s sense of scale. Feadship launched the 81.75 metre superyacht design at 2021 Monaco Yacht Show.

The company say they never release information about cost of their yachts. Designer Jan Schaffers explains: “At Feadship we are used to designing totally bespoke yachts for clients with every aspect driven by their individual desires.

Pure synthesises all the know-how gained in recent times over the types of spaces and exteriors which owners ask for in the purest way possible, following the red thread of these wishes.

Many of us are inherently reluctant to truly explore what our actual needs are and Pure takes a deep dive down this path. To slightly paraphrase the famous Steve Jobs quote, ‘people don't always know what they want until you actually show them.” A company statement says: “Taken as a whole, the negligible amount of exterior detailing generates an optical illusion and a loss of one’s sense of scale.

Approaching Pure’s stripped-back exterior, guests will be unsure of how large the yacht is, further enhancing the deep magic when they discover the spellbinding space that lies within.

A little like Lucy entering Narnia for the first time.” Feadship say the design is adaptable to "cover likely fuel requirements over the next decade or so”, allowing for the most efficient and eco-friendly propulsion systems.

They explain: “In modern yachtbuilding parlance the term ‘hybrid propulsion’ usually refers to a combination of diesel direct and diesel electric propulsion. Pure, on the other hand, is an energy hybrid, with diesel electric propulsion receiving energy from batteries and liquid fuel. Three scenarios are envisaged for a Pure-like Feadship: the initial delivery in 2024 and two upgrades in 2027 and 2030 respectively.”
