Bond-Inspired 77m Trimaran Superyacht Unveiled
Monegasque designer George Lucian is no stranger to outside-the-box design. From the studio that brought the industry M/Y Fata Morgana, (a superyacht designed to look like a melting iceberg to raise awareness of climate change), and M/Y Roswell (who takes inspiration from UFOs) comes 77m trimaran B0nd Girl, a project designed to harness and embody the contradictory zeitgeist of the modern era.
At 77m, B0nd Girl would become one of the largest tri-hull superyachts in the world if built, after 84m Echo Yachts’ White Rabbit. With 12 luxurious staterooms, an extensive Owner’s suite, infinity pool aft and private pontoon at stern, B0nd Girl is equipped with all of the top-of-the-line amenities befitting a 77m megayacht. Both conscious and hedonistic, designer George Lucian has married a hybrid propulsion with ultra-luxurious levels of comfort to symbolise two major dimensions of the superyacht industry. In fact, as we heard from the designer himself, this superyacht is all about reflecting - and going beyond - the current trends.
“I always try to bring through my designs - something daring, unique, and why not controversial, but for sure designs that cannot be forgotten easily,” he told us. “For the M/Y B0nd Girl design I got the inspiration from hero and spy movies, together with constant inspirations from the military, space, aircraft and stealth industries.”
In opting for a trimaran, the designer is consciously stoking a growing trend within the industry to offer increasingly complex multi-hull designs on a large scale, boldly disregarding any previous taboo or stigma.
“It’s something different, and it offers a very futuristic profile I think,” he added. “Plus they offer extreme stability and smooth sailing, as well as the fact that certain equipment and crew areas can be accommodated in the side floats leaving more space in the main hull for guests, with less vibration and noise.”
One of B0nd Girl’s most notable features is her inverted trimaran design, which allows for an ‘artificial harbour’ where a sailing support vessel can be moored when at anchor. With an interior design by Hannah Hombergen, B0nd Girl’s trimaran structure also affords her an interesting geometric layout which the designer has taken and run with.
As for her interiors, rich, dark materials such as mahogany, black marble and tinted glass give a sense of grandeur and enigma befitting a Bond villain.
