165m Design Could Become Sister Ship to Azzam: Nauta Yacht Design has developed a stunning 165m design that builds off of the success of their massive yacht Azzam. GLEAM incorporates Nauta’s core design theme of light that encompasses the pursuit of the seamless connection between interior and exterior, which essentially blurs the boundaries via clever design to space and prioritizing great views throughout the vessel.
GLEAM’s design emphasizes these priorities by enhancing outdoor living through open aft decks, side decks and the use of glass, much of which will open directly to the ocean and its utopian lifestyle, which is what yachting is essentially about. After developing the exterior of the 180m Azzam, which when she was built, placed her firmly atop the ranking for the world’s largest yachts, Nauta received universal recognition for the design.
Nauta’s light concept, conceived six years ago, has become its signature on all superyachts that they design and is based on a similar trend in civil architecture that emphasizes interior/exterior connection and harmony, breathtaking views, clean lines and extraordinary outdoor spaces. Blending of these elements results in elegance and visual lightness.
GLEAM’s superstructure spans half of her hull’s length with four decks over her main deck shortened harmoniously to form perfectly balanced volume ascending in a pyramid that to the mast that stand precisely on the hull’s vertical line. Each of the higher decks is devoted to specific functions and has large windowed areas that emphasize the concept. GLEAM will have seven deck in total.
The front half of the main deck is dedicated to two VIP suits and seven VIP cabins, each with a private fixed balcony. Amidships is the spectacular 150 sqm. lobby while the aft area of the main deck is houses a large pool that links to a health and entertainment area on the deck below that includes a gym, sauna, hammam, massage room, beauty parlor, cinema and casino. Further aft is a 150 sqm. open teak deck followed by en enclosed sea lounge which can be used as a dancing hall with disc jockey console and cocktail bar.
An opening transom features folding stairs and two side-opening terraces further enhance contact with the sea. Two boarding lobbies are located amidships where guests and crew can board tenders. On the lower deck, two garages house a submarine and a fast Rib. The front area is dedicated to crew cabins, mess and galley.
Forward on the upper deck are six guest cabins that are connected to a guest observation deck with sunbathing area that faces the bow and is surrounded with spectacular windows that provide a 180º view. A spiral staircase links to the VIP suites and cabins below. The aft indoor area houses another entertainment and relaxation area with a piano, an open dining room and sitting corners.
