The Austrian design studio motion code: blue has released its latest design concept SERION E60 Yacht which was generated by Benjamin Julian Toth, a student of the University of applied sciences FH Joanneum for Industrial Design, Graz Austria as a diploma thesis. The topic was to design a reinterpretation of long range passage maker yachts for the next generation of yacht owners. Mc.b acted as cooperation partner and sponsor for this project.
The main goal of SERION E60 yacht is to offer you a visualization of our future motor yachts within 60 ft by combining megatrends, future markets and consumer behaviors. Aside from those aspects, this yacht also focuses on unconventional functions and innovative features within its class.
This concept yacht underlines areas of possible improvement, it enables you to redefine the overall character to represent your lifestyle. It’s been designed for long range journeys, autarkic traveling and optimum living space in any climate or weather conditions. SERION E60 Yacht can adapt to reasonable changes of your future lifestyles. It is highly expectable that the aspect of well being and experiencing as well as independent and autarkic traveling will come to the fore, and the picture of fast looking dynamic yacht designs will slowly start to fade away.
The growing trend for passage makers is clearly visible in the super yacht segment, where not only the idea of long range journeys, but also the unmistakable look and feel of a moving luxury environment on any ocean of the planet makes up for the main purchasing reasons. Comparing the growing interest for long range vessels in smaller classes and the current variety of the 60 ft-market, shows a clear gap regarding future consumers expectations in terms of design and product identification.
Exterior design concept
To make up for the missing luxury appeal in many passage makers within 60 ft, high emphasis was put on aesthetic and emotional, yet practicable treatment of lines, forms, and proportions across the entire hull-and superstructure-design.
The visual, functional and emotional fusion of motoryacht- and sailing yacht-characteristics communicate the spirit of joyful long distance traveling as ecologically friendly as possible. Merging an emotional luxury approach with the idea of a rough ocean-going explorer vessel, SERION E60 yacht rather fits to the aesthetics of luxury yachts, than to conventional trawlers and passage makers of its class. Due to this, the main deck is stretched to the bow, where it connects to the main superstructure. Besides its new and unconventional overall appearance, the yacht offers several exterior features such as 2 balconies, one on each side of the greenhouse and a tilting bathing platform to create a huge beach club. The wide flybridge stretches itself above the whole main deck and the wheelhouse provides shade and safety.
Interior design concept
With an unconventional division of spaces and a layout concept that is based on reduction and special utility areas, each deck on board the SERION E60 yacht offers super yacht- inspired advantages in terms of a spacious and light flooded atmosphere. Depending on its temporary habitation and involved climate conditions, large units of the insulation glass can be converted. Retractable panoramic windows transform the main deck to an open loft whenever desired and sliding windows within the sky-cabin, which is located behind the wheelhouse on the flybridge, enable open air nights right underneath the stars.
The functional design approach of the main deck enables the experience of fusing interior and exterior spaces, creating a generous feel at any spot on board. A boundless view across the entire length of the main deck subconsciously suggests a living space far bigger than 60 feet. As the rear sliding door opens up completely, the external bar and internal kitchen unit seem to entirely merge together.
Taking typical trawlers and passage makers to another level of sophistication, this Serion E60 yacht expands the horizon of imagination towards future 60 ft displacement yachts.
