Game-Changing 110m M/Y NOW: The Future of Italian Design

By George Bains

Innovative Italian design firm Piredda & Partners has released an eye-catching 110m superyacht concept. M/Y NOW aims to be a game-changer and mark the beginning of the next generation of superyachts.

The concept, M/Y NOW, measures 110m in length with a 15.6m beam, or 18m including aft and forward wings. The concept sheds light on an idea of the future, well in sync with the forward-thinking ethos behind studio Piredda & Partners.

Nicolò Piredda, Creative Director at Piredda & Partners, says: “The upcoming years hold a new way to go through the design process where designers will reconsider volumes, heights, proportions, as well as a new way of living aboard and new flows, while keeping functionality as a first priority.

“The design result is on a whole new level.”

The exterior design features rational sporty lines on an overall modern appearance. The profile of the vessel draws a low silhouette that hides a great amount of interior space, thanks to the superstructure that connects three decks with continuous arcs resulting in two monolithic volumes floating on the full-glass housing. The hull features soft and clean forms that highlight the advanced surface which curvature shows amazing reflections.

The volumes alignment alteration on M/Y NOW creates new spots onboard and splits areas with different purpose such as the private owner’s deck and the crew quarter on bridge deck.

“The feeling breathed walking through these spaces is elegant but informal with a variation of open spaces, intimate corners, and private exclusive area,” describes Federico Lo Giudice, Piredda & Partners’ Head of Interior Design.

A grand salon welcomes guests onboard in an impressive double height space with floor-to-ceiling windows, a true example of technological innovation and styling evolution. Among the other remarkable features there is the 75sqm theatre placed amidship that boasts 4.4m clear height, the full-beam Arcade with terraces, the spacious heli-lobby, the basketball field on the forward deck, the party deck on the top of the vessel, and other countless unique gems.

In her 4135GT, M/Y NOW accommodates 18 guests with the owner stateroom on a whole private deck, 4 VIP suites on main deck, and 4 guest cabins on lower deck, while the crew area accommodates 41 members including 4 staff.

M/Y NOW is a masterpiece that does not want to define a trend or a series, she rather wants to set a new beginning and be unique in any detail. Piredda & Partners’ Marketing Manager Eleonora Moro, adds, “Piredda & Partners creates unique designs, conceives visions, realizes dreams. M/Y NOW stands as a flag of our Design Studio, but there is so much more behind the scenes and so many fresh proposals ready to become reality.”

"The design result is on a whole new level."
