A Misha Merzliakov Design 52m "Eva"

The above image was Misha Merzliakov's entry for the Young Designer of the Year Awards 2011, its a 52m (170ft) Powercat Eva, and took Misha Merzliakov to the finals. Misha is one of the top designer prospects right now and we can expect many more top class designs in the future.

Eva has perfect blend of glass and Dutch art movement inspired exterior and draws your eyes along a seemingly boundary-less mix of glass and structure with a sleek angled profile.

One of the yachts special features is the innovative bow door for vehicle and tender storage. The door can be lowered down on to a dock or a pier so that a vehicle can be driven off for use on the mainland.

The principle living areas and owners cabin face the stern with the focal point being the elevated pool area, the recreational outdoor spaces and the environment. Misha says:

"I wanted to push the boundaries of catamaran design both in arrangement and exterior."

This has definitely been shown within the design. Eva will be able to accommodate 12 guest in 1 owners cabin, 3 double guest cabins, 1 children's twin cabin and a children's double cabin. Each deck has many features which are:
  • Lower Deck: 2 Beach clubs, wake boarding boat, 3 jet skis, scuba facilities and sunning areas.
  • Main Deck: The main saloon, indoor and outdoor dining, sunken playpen/dance floor, cinema, pool area, internal and external sun lounges and forward the tender and vehicle storage.
  • Upper Deck: Guest accommodation, owners lounge, additional saloon and games room and lounges on the aft deck.
  • Bridge Deck: Apart from the bridge, this space is dedicated to the owner who has a 100m2 cabin and a 67m2 private deck space.
