42m Steel: Project Kinesis

Current Build Phase


The use and requirements of the future client determine the size, speed and GT of the yacht. After the first layout we start developing the general arrangement and building specs, followed by tank tests and engineering.

Extraordinary things happen

This 42-metre steel yacht is the most dramatic advance in performance, ever. This is no idle boast but a fact proven by independent research from two of the world’s most respected hydrodynamic laboratories. This yacht defies all preconceived notions on performance by using something that surrounds every yacht - the sea - by harnessing waves to produce power. Using conventional engines combined with a Fast Displacement Hull Form and a sub sea wing or Hull Vane® (option), extraordinary things happen.

First impressions

A contemporary style layout includes large sofas and armchairs, dining for ten guests and sunbathing areas set on either side of the octagonal Jacuzzi. For entertaining, the upper deck saloon is surrounded by glass with floor to ceiling windows and doors out to a 30-square-metre aft deck terrace.

Revolutionary Hull Vane® (option)

The Hull Vane (optional) harnesses waves to produce power. As the yacht moves forward, water flowing over the wing produces lift and as a consequence, thrust. Using conventional engines, a fast displacement hull and Vane, this yacht has a range of over 4,000 miles. Using 30 per cent less fuel, this remarkable yacht is both the fastest and most economical of her size and as a result 750 miles are eff ectively free. More for less.
