Berlin-based design studio T. Fotiadis Design has already made a name for itself on notable projects including 118m Vitality and 90/115m Stormbreaker. Its latest project arguably goes further than ever before in terms of our footprint and impact on the oceans we love to explore.
Ultra2 makes use of cutting-edge green technology with an all-electric Azipod® propulsion system, and is powered by diesel-electric motors. Methanol fuel cells have also been integrated to provide high performance and re-charge the puffer batteries at port.
‘We have to respect what lifts us up,’ designer Fotiadis explained the ambition behind Ultra2 to Superyachts.com. ‘Ultra2 is a next generation superyacht, built for the conscious owner to explore the seven seas with a free mind and all of the luxury they are accustomed to.’
The onboard systems of Ultra2 have also been designed for maximum retention of heat and sound, to ensure that the 90m mega yacht takes nothing away from her surroundings as she cruises.
Theodoros Fotiadis wanted to prove that a superyacht of Top100 size and stature can give back to the ocean, without any compromise on design standards and luxury. As can be seen from the new renderings, Ultra2’s interiors are plush and welcoming, comprising intricately sourced materials from the best brands in furniture design and finishing. A spiral staircase seamlessly links all four decks, while contemporary oversized window panels flood Ultra2’s interior spaces with abundant natural light to create an atmosphere of connectivity.
Her eye-catching exteriors and unique indented bow also achieve the difficult effect of imposing a sporty, masculine character on an elegant and streamlined profile. No effort has been spared for luxury here; from her infinity pool on aft deck to her onboard iMax cinema. The primacy of the owner is at the heart of the design, as Fotiadis has integrated a safe room and cutting-edge technology to maximise onboard security.
The latest concept from T Fotiadis Design is highly developed and ready to build. After years of experience delivering renderings for shipyards such as Lurssen and Feadship, Theodoros has now turned his hand to delivering his own projects, and with great effect.
