Rainsford Mann Design
"A vessel that has the potential to become the largest yacht in the world is being designed by Rainsford Mann Design. It is at least 170m in length, with a beam of 24m and height of 25m and is designed to meet full SOLAS requirements. There are seven decks connected by a central atrium served by two glass lifts. The owner’s accommodation includes four en suite bedrooms, gym, offices and a dining room, all on a private deck. In addition, there is accommodation for another 50 guests who will be served by 65 permanent crew, increasing to 85 when needed. Leisure facilities include a cinema, virtual golf course, 15m swimming pool and seven tenders including a mini-sub. Propulsion will combine diesel and gas turbine plants with pod-style drives for efficiency and manoeuvrability. Work is forecast to start in the summer of 2006."
