Ever wondered what it would feel like to be an intergalactic king? Because that is precisely what owning the Estrella superyacht is going to feel like.
From the sharp edges of the hulls on the front and the sides to the well-defined curves meeting in the middle, this superyacht is a piece of art. Art that feels like it comes from the future. But, here we are witnessing this majestic superyacht in all of its Sci-fi glory.
If someone told me that this superyacht was the lair of some supervillain and could transform into a fighter plane and fly, I would believe them! It almost feels like it is going to take off any second now.
Who made this superyacht?
The designer Yeojin Jung designed this superyacht to be the jewel of the sea, and I must say that I agree. He drew inspiration from cantilevered architecture to create this beauty. But that was not the only reason why the cantilevered structure inspired him.
He used the principles of Cantilever design to solve the balance problem. This problem occurs because of its design where the two side hulls connect with the main hull. This arrangement can lead to a leaning center of gravity on both ends.
He installed Fin stabilizers to stabilize the ship and solve this problem. By setting the Fin stabilizers on both sides of the center hull, it can counterbalance all hulls. Pretty neat isn’t it?
Why was it made?
The designer wanted this superyacht to be the most impactful out of the 5,000+ superyachts currently on this planet. The Y-shape of this superyacht looks stunning from every single angle. But, the top is undoubtedly the most prominent and beautiful. From that angle, this superyacht looks cool beyond belief.
Looking cool however is not the only thing on the agenda. The split hull design also serves to provide the wealthy passengers of this superyacht with different views of the sea. The multiple vantage points also ensure that during a party, if you feel like experiencing the views away from the crowd, you won’t be missing out!
Who is it for?
Well, after seeing all this, we all know that this gorgeous superyacht is going to come at a mind-boggling price. And that is the point. After all, this was specifically designed keeping UHNWIs in mind.
UNHW what? UNHWI is the abbreviation for Ultra High Net Worth Individuals. Or as normal people call it, the filthy rich. As the new and young generation of these individuals continues to pursue unique experiences, this is going to be in demand.
In the designer’s own words, he envisions this to be the ultimate device by the time it comes out in 2035. He believes that this is without a doubt going to provide the finest and most luxurious experiences money can get. The Estrella Superyacht is also a winner of the A’ Design Award for the year 2021.
