Bhavana Yacht

Bhavana

Bhavana

The aim of this project was to commence a small revolution introducing a nascent change onto the old school ways of building a yacht. This project has been conceptualized addressing this change and the critical issue of the undisciplined usage of energy, which in turn impacts the ecosystem around us.

The designer was motivated by his primary passions in yacht designing - breakthrough technologies and contributing to the upkeep of the biosphere. This project has explored some interesting technologies beginning with using a Graphene infused carbon fibre for the hull which has major benefits primarily being 50% lighter in weight and stronger than normal carbon fibre. The next technology looked at is Micro Lattice Work for yacht bullheads that in turn reduces the weight but also the usage of metal in build. Bhavana also makes use of a linear Jet propulsion system which would reduce fuel consumption, increase speed and offer a much silent experience while sailing.

For the superstructure the intention was to offer a design that presented a unique shape with a 360 Degree viewing that would allow the guest to have a wider spectrum of the sea. The lower deck will offer an appended experience, with 360 degree cameras below the hull presenting the guests a Virtual Reality vision on board and helping them have an exceptional oceanic experience of below the hull.

The exterior styling has been designed with a vision of keeping it simple, unique and futuristic. The yachts sails use the notorious 3 Dyna Rig system popularised by Maltese Falcon, but with the addition of Solar Panels infused into the sails and mounted Solar Cells on to the edges of majority of the glass frames of the yacht.
