H2 Yacht Design's 110m 'Atlas'

Some words come to mind when looking at the new concept design by H2 Yacht Design & laurent Giles Superyacht Architecture; (Wow, Massive, Spectacular, Mind-blowing). The collaboration between between these two parties has seen the development of project Atlas, a modern motor Superyacht that utilises the efficiencies of sailing. With these gigantic sails she will exploit the obvious fuel saving and green benefits. When she uses both motor and sails she can cruise at a speed of 14kts, with a possible fuel saving of 40% to 60% along with and increase in range. Under motor alone she can reach a maximum speed of 18kts with a range of 8,000nm.

She will measure 110m (360ft) and comply of 5 decks which all blend perfectly to show smooth exterior lines. Will Atlas appeal to an owner looking to build one of the largest sailing yachts in the world? maybe the concept will sell at the Monaco Yacht Show this week, we will have to wait and find out.
