Designer Jonathan Schwinge has created a conceptual superyacht called Tetrahedron Superyacht. With the pyramid-shaped body, it looks like alien spaceship that would lift itself above the water at high speeds. The form of the yacht is reduced to the absolute geometry of a Tetrahedron. A three-based pyramid consisting of 4 faces and 6 leading edges provides fundamental stability and enclosure. Its form produces a pure, precise, logical and mathematical ‘roof’ from which to connect to the hull assembly.
The ytacht boasts spacious sun decks, an outdoor dining area and water toys for guests. Made from carbon fibre and duplex stainless steel, Tetrahedron Superyacht can accommodate six passengers and four crew members in a 70.8-ft long pyramid that has four faces and six leading edges. It has a ‘flying speed’ of 38 knots (43.7mph) above the water line and a take-off speed of 15 knots (17.2mph), with a range of 3,000 nautical miles. Thanks to a unique design that controls roll forces, pitch and heave, the yacht would travel smoothly through rough water.
At low speed the yacht sits gently on three underbelly hulls and at high speed the pyramid rises from the water as the hydrofoils rotate on the submerged HYSWAS (hydrofoil small waterplane area ship) hull.
