A design studio's stunning superyacht concept looks like a floating volcano
- The luxurious superyacht is inspired by Mount Vesuvius.
- Forge is topped with luxury amenities.
- A hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system gives Forge a range of over 5,000 nautical miles.
Design studio M51 has just revealed its newest design, the 262-foot (80-meter) superyacht concept that looks like a floating volcano or a pyramid from hell, if you will.
The luxurious superyacht, called Forge, is inspired by Mount Vesuvius. Its design is intended to embody the silhouette of a volcano on the water. This is realized by the pyramid-shaped superstructure in obsidian black and sharp angular orange decks.
With a beam of 41 feet, Forge offers a generous volume of 1,750 GT. Its designer Anthony Glasson says the interior has been kept relatively simple to counter the bold exterior. Still, you can expect a range of natural materials and elegant contemporary furnishings.
Forge is topped with luxury amenities. Forge’s design with vaulted ceilings blends the interior and exterior spaces in a unique way.
Thanks to her pyramid superstructure, the concept superyacht has a private panoramic glass ceiling in the master’s suite, allowing for guests to stargaze in bed.
Forge features a helipad on the foredeck and a walkaround bridge deck with a “molten staircase” leading to a swimming pool and wellness suite.
The superyacht design also offers a sensory deprivation tank, which is said to offer “guests a break from the outside world.” The tank is located next to the superyacht’s full-beam tender garage, which has both port and starboard hatches for deployment.
