Jorge Jabor Pinheiro presented a concept of a 92-metre superyacht Sahodara. The main feature of the project is a rotating owner’s deck which incorporates the existing design format seen in land architecture such as a rotating restaurant like the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

The 92m superyacht would have a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. She would be able to accommodate 12 guests and 27 crews. The main idea of the concept lies in the fact that the yacht can be owned by two persons. That’s why the owner’s deck includes two master suites at each end of the deck and is able to rotate so that either end can face forward.

“It is mainly a wish of the two owner’s that each room is capable of having a forward view of the ocean while on board,” explains Pinheiro. “Besides, the rotation gives the whole yacht two different profiles, making it a very intriguing feature.”

“I should probably add that it’s not a 360-degree rotation device, it only rotates to about 200-something degrees and back.” noted Pinheiro.

The superyacht concept features asymmetric interior and exterior design which was inspired by looking at layered architecture and topography models with the aim of creating a ripple-like effect when seen from a birds-eye view.

The 92m vessel would be able to cruise at a speed of 16 knots; her top speed is about 20 knots.
