Want a sneak peek at some haute happenings in the world of luxury yachts? It’s still in the development phases, which will make tracking its progress even more exciting. Giancarlo Alhadeff, the Italian-based international architect who touts degrees from Harvard and Columbia, and interior designer Michael Lewis, is refitting the 164-foot vessel, My Tzarina, with some of the most contemporary designs we’ve seen on the water yet.
Futuristic, coralline, and the avoidance of hard right angles are the basic principles of the design motif for My Tzarina refitting. So unique will be the experience of sailing in this yacht that official sources say visitors will feel like they are swimming through the inside of a coral reef as shafts of sunlight pierce the water’s surface from above.
Aquamarine-colored surfaces against fluid white lines make being on board a continuum of the sea rather than the domination of it.
With this ship, the proud owner, a Russian real estate developer, is dictating a new paradigm in the world of yacht design.
