BMT Nigel Gee Unveils the Very Unconventional Project Utopia
BMT Nigel Gee has unveiled its latest design in partnership with Yacht Island Design. Project Utpoia, a futuristic yacht concept, breaks the traditional naval architectural mould and comes free from all conventional design concepts.
With length and breadth of 100 meters, along with 11 decks, Project Utopia is a yacht island with volume equal to any cruise liner.
The design consists of four legged platform, with each leg supporting a fully azimuthing thruster. A large central structure bisects the water surface acting as the conduit for the mooring system which is a critical element of the design, as well as housing a wet dock for access by tenders. The design also consists of multiple helicopter pads.
Of the 11 decks, the uppermost deck is covered by a retractable canopy and on the 13th floor, which is 65 m above the water surface; there is an observatory with 360 degree views.
