L’AMAGE, one of the largest luxury superyacht projects in the world, combines today’s technology and manufacturing techniques with futuristic superyacht style to entertain 30 guests and 70 crew over a whopping 190 meters.
The exterior styling of L’Amage is minimalistic in style with clean lines. The hull design represents an inverted bow with an distinctive inclined character line running the whole length of the hull to create a strong dynamic and sleek shape.
One of the iconic elements in the exterior design of L’Amage is a disk-shaped helideck, located at the bow area with two wings protruding on either side highlighting the futuristic style by fusing a spaceship-aeronautical look with yacht design elements. The wings accommodate a set of flat panel satellites and navigation lights.
The main deck in the aft area offers the proper space for an outdoor lifestyle, with a stunning infinity swimming pool suspended outside of the main deck. Below this, in the mezzanine lower deck, a cozy balcony area faces the sea with an embedded fireplace for lounging outside, even during colder seasons.
In the aft side of the superstructure, on the third floor, two parallel walkways converge into a circular balcony suspended in the air, forming the yacht’s signature observation deck, for guests to enjoy uninterrupted sea views.
Using one of the most advanced propulsion technologies available in the maritime industry called CODAG (combination of diesel engines and gas turbines) together with controllable-pitch propellers, this superyacht can reach a max speed of 32 knots thanks to the 95000hp generated by its 2 diesel engines running together with 2 gas turbines. This propulsion system is mostly used for warships, where a speed faster than their cruising speed is required. The fuel capacity of 1500 tons enables this vessel an approximately 6000 nautical miles of independence.
L’Amage is also the first new build superyacht project to that is incorporating the flat panel satellite technology by Kymeta. The Kymeta solution can entirely replace the unsightly satellite domes on top of the yacht, which has been an industry standard for decades. The Kymeta solution is a further future proofing of the yacht as it is designed to work with today’s as well as future satellite constellations providing future proof communications. The flat satellite panels can be easily installed anywhere behind the exterior walls of the superstructure of the yacht and as a result a much lighter and slimmer antenna mast can be designed, freeing up a significant amount of space in the sundeck area of the superyacht, which In the case of L’Amage, that extra space is used to create a rooftop lounge area with a bar and sitting area, a dancefloorand an infinity swimming pool.
