Sturge Design, a London-based design studio for exclusive interiors, architecture, and yachts, has just announced a new 314-foot explorer yacht concept, Rimor X. Vienna based designer Ben Julian Toth was brought in to design the exterior while experiential travel and adventure company Pelorus, collaborated as the technical advisor for the project. Rimor X accommodates 14 guests in seven staterooms – four double suites on the lower deck, two VIP apartments on the main deck, and an owner’s deck, with its own personal facilities – perfect for the high-octane and ever-curious adventurer and their family and friends.
A combination of a yacht designed to travel to the ends of the earth and back – if you can find enough stops along the way to re-fuel! – along with a luxurious high-tech interior, Rimor X is much more than a traditional explorer vessel. Combining extreme luxury and technical prowess was no easy feat and on top of that is the high demands from clients on the explorer front.
Throughout the yacht, interior spaces are combined with extensive glass surfaces which provided explorers panromantic views of the horizon and beyond. One of the most unique is the 21-ft.-high glass windows providing full-width an observation lounge running across the bow and the Mermaid lounge below. The submerged Mermaid lounge allows for guests onboard to observe life underwater and be in constant view of the oasis which surrounds them.
The new concept also features a sundeck, creating an island inside the yacht, and also provides a 33-ft. pool with its own cabana outside, which with a touch of a button can be converted into a helicopter hangar. At the lower stern of Rimor X, the yacht is equipped with a large gym, spa and jacuzzi with fire pits, a wellness area including a mudroom, dive shop, and optional submarine deployment.
A unique interior design feature is the asymmetrical stairs, which connects the sun deck to the main deck. Interior stylings include teak detailing in the ceilings and textured materials throughout which play with a just-right balance of light-absorbing and reflection materials throughout the yacht.
