The World's Largest Private Residence Superyacht: 222m Somnio
Tillberg Design of Sweden, in collaboration with Winch Design, are daring to dream as they are appointed lead architect for master planning and interior concepts for the world’s largest private residence superyacht, Somnio.
From the latin ‘to dream’, Somnio has been dubbed within the industry as the first “Yacht Liner” due to its incredible 222m length. Featuring 39 onboard apartments Somnio will be the world’s largest private residence superyacht. Working in close collaboration with Winch Design, Tillberg Design of Sweden is more than delighted to be trusted with the designing of this luxury superyacht.
Daniel Nerhagen, Tillberg Design of Sweden Partner and Yacht Director, says: "Somnio can be seen as an evolution of two industries coming together. In this project, we merge the best of these worlds. The commercial build process for efficiency in combination with design, quality and craftsmanship from the superyacht industry. Yachts have grown bigger and bigger, and I see shared knowledge and hybrid projects as a natural step for the industry in the coming years. All of this gives the owners the best value for their investment."
The design of the yacht has been developed, alongside a client team, with optimal flows, and impeccable tailored layouts, the purpose of which is to enhance the guest experience and crew operations throughout the yacht. In order to emulate the authentic yachting ambiance inside the vessel, the interior of the yacht has been designed using materials such as crafted wood, elegant leather and exclusively designed textiles.
Fredrik Johansson, Tillberg Design of Sweden Partner and Executive Director says, "It really is a unique project, and the level of ambition from the stakeholders is truly exceptional. We are applying all the combined experience we have from our work within private yachts, effective master planning of large vessels, as well as our deep understanding of residential life at sea. The outcome will be like nothing else that exists today; it will be dream-like. The way the yacht is planned and equipped, and the interior and exterior design, together with the standard of outfitting, will make it as close to living on a private yacht that you can get without buying one of your own.”
The itinerary of this behemoth superyacht is just about as monumental as the yacht itself. With plans to explore all corners of the globe including: cruising the Mediterranean, crossing to New York, sailing the South Pacific and undertaking expeditions in Antarctica.
When the yacht liner has reached completion in mid-2024, the amenities onboard will be spectacular and will include: a 10,000 bottle wine cellar, fine-dining restaurants and bars, and an onboard beach club with water sports facilities to name a few.
A number of different apartments, sizes and layouts have been developed for Somnio through the designing processes and all 39 are already being sold. Obtention of said apartments is being kept strictly private and is entirely invitation or referral based. The names of the owners of the world’s largest private residential superyacht are also being held strictly underwraps and will reportedly remain as such.
