Decadence: A Futuristic Superyacht For High Sea Adventures

Innovative yacht designs are always captivating and this one, created by Andy Waugh Yacht Design, is no exception. Measuring 80 meters in length, this vessel is tailor-made for opulent voyages across the open waters.

Named Decadence, this vessel features a cutting-edge “Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull” (SWATH), distinguishing itself from other superyachts and catamarans. Moreover, as a mere conceptual design, this approach remains highly unconventional.

Designer: Andy Waugh

The SWATH vessel draws inspiration from the unprecedented advancements observed in the automotive and aeronautical fields during the 1920s. Its superyacht form not only exhibits a UAP-like silhouette but also serves a practical purpose. Andy states that the cylindrical hulls, which are submerged and integrated into the yacht’s primary structure, are supported by minimal cross-section stilts.

The vessel offers significant benefits, including a high tolerance for pitch and roll, ensuring the safety and comfort of those aboard. According to Andy, Decadence reduces pitch and roll by nearly 70% compared to a conventional monohull. As for its design, the yacht boasts a 30-meter beam and an interior configuration of 5,000 GT.

The hull can be fully opened to reconfigure the layout – a unique feature found only in a few watercraft. One option is to expand the master suite to nearly 20 meters wide, 30 meters long, and with a three-meter high ceiling. This creates an extremely luxurious living arrangement while on the sea. The main hull is reserved for guests, with the crew enjoying their stay in either the sponsons or outer hull, both of which are equally luxurious.

Anchoring the Decandence can pose a challenge due to its immense size. To alleviate this difficulty, the manufacturer suggests utilizing 14-meter chase boat tenders to transport passengers to the shore in opulence. However, the catamaran is equipped with a robust structure that enables it to withstand harsh weather conditions while moored in rough waters.

The vessel will utilize a groundbreaking propulsion system that will reduce energy usage by nearly 30%. Additionally, retractable inflatable sails can be utilized in headwinds to further enhance fuel efficiency without sacrificing speed.
