freelance architecture and yacht designer lujac desautel, well known for his nomination for the 2014 young designer of the year award by the boat international media, unveils the luxurious ‘SALT’ yacht to follow the ‘glass’ concept, envisioned in 2014. designed to provide passengers with a flexible, transparent and honest life aboard, its framework enables people to transform and engage the watercraft with the sea. its steps that fold down to the water, glass facade that slides open like a curtain, and its rear beach club, puts people at water-level and looks as if its built up from the ocean. it measures 55 meters in length which is the same height as its main mast, and accommodates three dining rooms, five cabins and multiple crew sleeping areas.
