The future lies in sustainable luxury and the use of materials with a distinct environmental consciousness. Naboo, the new superyacht from a design studio, Hidden Portside, is a pure electric zero-emissions yacht along with a myriad of sustainable materials used for its development plus design.
Even the design is quite radical and embracing open spaces. This 50-meter superyacht concept has a unique touch with its own vertical three-story garden plus a 95sqm inner patio which connects it to the beach club which incidentally is complete with its own Jacuzzi and bar. The main deck is spacious enough for ten passengers to lounge about in utter comfort with four cabins. The bridge deck however features a master cabin while equipped with a second Jacuzzi and a private terrace.
The luxury vessel is replete with sleek surfacing and is built with sustainability in mind while having a hull made from recycled aluminum. Further on there is a solar panel system on the roof (the reason why there is no sundeck) and the materials used for its fabrication include synthetic teak.
Interestingly, the layout intends to keep the inside temperatures remain as stable as possible to avoid excessive use of AC. In order to achieve that, smart materials as PCM (Phase Change Materials) are used in the interior walls. These materials can change their phase emitting or absorbing air heat depending on the atmosphere temperature. Controlling inside temperature it’s also possible by using finishes as ultra-reflective metallic painting in the superstructure in order to reflect as much UV light as possible to keep the inside air cool.
There is also space in the lower deck for a 26-foot garage along with all the toys which any superyacht owner would like to keep. Overall, this superyacht stays true to its name which is inspired by the Naboo planet in the Star Wars with its green interiors and design philosophy.
