Since it’s based on the concept of a private estate on water rather than a luxury boat, ‘Symmetry’, the superyacht of the future is certain to create waves.
Unveiled at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show in September, the luxury vessel attracted much admiration. The 590-foot yacht has six decks, each offering a distinct functional value – beach, hotel, guest accommodation, wheelhouse, lower-deck, and, of course, the owner-exclusive space.
‘Symmetry’ has been designed as a ‘home away from home’ for a discerning client, according to Sander J. Sinot of design firm Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. He does not see it as an opulent showpiece, but rather, ‘just a place to indulge, work, play, and enjoy life’ (provided you can afford it).
The features on board include a glass-bottomed swimming pool, cinema, library, office, private spa and sky lounge. There’s an inner garden as well as one on deck. The yacht can accommodate 34 guests and 48 crew, with an exterior deck space of 1000 sq metres.
Built up from the centre instead of the traditional linear model yachts are designed on, ‘Symmetry’ will be able to navigate a bi-directional course at sea.
The promotion pitch for the luxury vessel presented it as a ‘personal residence to take pride in’, only one that’s floating on water. Sinot says there are ‘super yacht owners who work 24 hours a day, even when on holiday’. He’s hoping that one of them will want Symmetry in his life four years down the line, when the yacht is ready to take to the waters.
