Meet the Hybrid Explorer Yacht, one of the latest and most magnificent creations of the luxury yachting industry. This is Gill Schmid Design’s most recent project, and it is definitely a breathtaking sight to be seen. Today, Luxury Yachts unveils yet another incredible, impressive and inspiring superyacht project: Gill Schmid Design’s project, a Superb 80m Hybrid Explorer Yacht.
Gill Schmid Design is a New York-based and internationally acclaimed design practice based in New York, founded by Alistair Gill and Veronika Schmid. The practice is recognized for its innovative design work in the fields of yacht and superyacht design, architectural design and their consultancy work for world-renowned artists. The studio came up with this modern explorer yacht for the shipyard of Dörries Yachts in Germany.
Designed together with Tim Dempers Studio, this vessel is an 80m hybrid ice-class explorer, with generous surfaces of glass and clean lines, a steel hull, an aluminum superstructure and a nearly vertical stem.
The yacht will be able to accommodate an impressive number of tenders and water toys: two Triton submarines, four Sea-Doo jet skis, a 12m limousine tender, several autonomous underwater vehicles, and even a high-speed Damen Interceptor. The vessel features an A-frame crane, fully integrated into the design, that will make it easy to launch all these tenders in the water.
There’s also touch and go helipad aft that could be transformed into a streetball/basketball court, while the large tender garage on the main deck can be also transformed into a party deck when all the tenders and toys are in the water. The deck with the helipad also features a modern gym that beautifully overlooks the sea, that is absolutely incredible.
Other amenities of this 80-meter hybrid explorer yacht are spa and lounge areas with TVs inside the yacht and a relaxation area outside with a Jacuzzi, sunbeds, coffee tables, and armchairs. The future owners of this vessel will get to enjoy a full-beam master suite, with a private outdoor deck and a private dining area that could sit up to six people.
