A Superyacht’s Own Floating Island
Feb 20, 2015
[cresta-social-share]

An upcoming superyacht designer has proposed what could be the next must-have accessory for charter yachts – a floating, multi-purpose ‘recreational island.’

Soon prospective yacht charterers may have another amenity to ponder when looking for a superyacht that boasts a helipad, swimming pool or movie theatre, as a mobile island could become a reality in the near future.

Measuring approximately 33ft by 26ft, specialist in innovative nautical solutions, Henry Ward, has continued to push the boundaries of luxury yacht design with his concept of a folding, floating platform, in collaboration with leading nautical architects BMT Nigel Gee. Compact and easily stored in the tender bays of superyachts measuring over 230ft, the island could provide the ultimate in privacy so charter guests can enjoy the beauty of their cruising destinations completely undisturbed.

The island could feature luxuries including a glass-bottomed seating area, golfing platform, a slide-out sunbed, bar and dining area and facilities to optimise use of charter yacht’s water toys in the surrounding waters. The design can be tailor-made to superyacht owner’s own personal requirements

To be launched by tender cranes, the versatile island attaches to a yacht’s transom for potential use as a helipad to save deck space and solve the issue of tight helicopter landing rules. Towable by tender to shallow waters beyond a superyacht’s reach, once unfolded in the water, the island will accommodate guest’s every need and can hold up to 10 tonnes in weight.

Opened by a pressurised hydraulic system, Henry Wards and BMT Nigel Gee have proposed that four anchors will hold the island in place whilst guests enjoy the unique experience.

Allowing guests to save their charter yacht’s deck space for other uses, the floating island is a promising solution to the burning question of ‘how do you make the luxury yacht charter experience even more luxurious?’
