Denison unveiled Project UNIQUE 71, a 71-meter custom yacht concept designed by SkyStyle. The project is exclusively available as a new construction opportunity with Denison.
SkyStyle is a design studio based in the U.S., Spain, and Argentina that is focused on advanced aviation conceptual design. Lead designers Lucas Colombo and Max Pardo have worked with aviation giants such as Boeing to test the boundaries of what is possible in an aircraft cabin. They are using their aviation design skills to break into the yachting industry with their first yacht designs for Project UNIQUE.
Measuring 71 metres in length, Project UNIQUE 71 is intended for “cruising oceans in style and at speed”. Denison says “her futuristic profile and 13-metre beam embrace sporty characteristics such as a sharp, pointed bow and three-dimensional surfaces”.
There is an elevator as well as the wraparound central staircase to help guests move from one deck to another. The yacht can accommodate 12 passengers in fully equipped private suites, including four comfortable cabins, one VIP suite, and one Owner’s master stateroom. The owner’s deck is designed with an illuminated ceiling that can also be set to automatically open for an ocean breeze.
The yacht’s interior is optimized to connect with the environment thanks to the generous transparent surfaces surrounding the social areas. The opacity of the glass panels that flank the yacht can be regulated to define the mood or increase privacy or transparency. The superyacht features a sky lounge sundeck, a jacuzzi, a touch-and-go helipad, and a plunge pool with an automatic cover. There is also plenty of entertainment and relaxation areas, including a gym, sauna, 12-seat theater, and billiard/bar room.
Denison broker Alex G Clarke says: “In today’s world of yacht design, we are constantly pushing the boundary of what is possible both in form and function. Unique 71 aims to satisfy the most challenging client. With Denison presenting this groundbreaking design, it allows a client to approach multiple shipyards to gather quotes to help develop and make this project a reality without being tied to a particular yard.
“The challenge is to find a shipyard that can understand this vision and the client’s goals – both as an individual and in their business/personal use of the yacht. We look forward to playing a small role in making this dream come true.”
