jolly roger 65 meter yacht by ludovica + roberto palomba for benetti

‘jolly roger mega-yacht’ by ludovica + roberto palomba for benetti



designed by milan-based palomba serafini associati architecture studio, the 65 meter long ‘jolly roger mega-yacht’ possesses a dynamic and elegant look with decks supported by a system of ‘equipped ribs’ which lighten the volume and allow the use of large windows. the conception takes from the idea of a ‘high-powered car of the sea’ – automotive DNA that seen within the structures, which release the decks from visual obstruction by giving back the relation with nature and the ocean. here, the ship owner has an entire floor at his disposal on the top level, a privileged position that allows him to look at the sky through a removable cover.
