dutch yacht design and engineering company sea level looks to the future of long distance water travel with the ‘ CF8’ concept. enabling a family to bring their cars and possessions, the 80 meter yacht would essentially be a floating community. unlike traditional yachts, the hull and glass superstructure would be inextricably linked together through a strong outer shape and the downward lines from the upper section of the hull towards the bow would give the yacht effective aerodynamic shape.

during the design process, sea level was influenced by the louwman exclusive cars glass showroom in the netherlands from which they proposed a curved structure that counter poses the outer lines. the 100 cubic meter glass garage also takes into account an hydraulic platform for disembarking cars from the yacht. with this, the owner will be able to choose the appropriate vehicle from his/her own collection for any occasion. for the feasibility of this design, sea level created a structural feature with a large centre line supporting beam through the entire ‘CF8’. the extreme width also offers great stability at sea that will offer maximum comfort to the guests and crew. onboard, the owners will experience an indoor and outdoor atmosphere that never existed in superyachts.
