superyacht designs by kevin schopfer

the seventy-six meter long ‘oculus’ is the first design by schopfer yachts LLC.

kevin schopfer, a boston, massachusetts-based architect has designed two unusually shaped yachts named ‘oculus’ and ‘infinitas’. designed to accommodate 12 guests for a long distance cruising yacht, ‘oculus’ looks like a large-scaled sea creature with the jaw and eyes of a whale and a small fin on the top. ‘infinitas’ is influenced by the shapes of the figure-eight infinity loops. both yachts incorporate swimming pools and a sun deck,with a starting price of 95 million US dollars for ‘oculus’ and 140 million US dollars for ‘infinitas’,

the exterior styling of ‘oculus’ is based on a giant sesa creature

‘oculus’ is capable of speeds upwards of 25 knots

the interior of ‘oculus’ has three levels.

the second level of the boat- living areas and bedrooms are divided by a series of four freestanding tubes
