Monaco (15 April 2019)
Inspired by the elegance, speed and agility of the Mediterranean Cuttlefish, the 63m superyacht’s innovative concept is the perfect showcase for Roberto’s unconventional style.
A unique design, HYPNOSQUID’s all-aluminium exterior features brightly-coloured LED windows which draw the eye to the bow and represent the cephalopod’s eyes. From the interior, these large windows will allow guests to observe the ocean unobstructed whilst cruising.
At 63m, HYPNOSQUID can accommodate up to 12 guests but Curtó has chosen to privilege a more spacious and comfortable layout for 10 guests with a stunning Owner’s suite located on the main deck and generously-sized guest staterooms situated on the lower deck.
The Duplex Owner’s suite is set across 2 decks and features a bedroom with stairs leading down to a private lounge and library. Separated from the other guest areas for total privacy, the Owner’s suite opens onto a full-beam lobby and garden with an overhead skylight.
Characterised by the large windows representing the eyes of the squid, HYPNOSQUID’s main deck has a stylish full-beam lounge area which leads into a games room. Privacy panels can be used to separate the games room from the salon for high-stakes poker sessions.
HYPNOSQUID’s formal dining area is also located on the main deck and can accommodate up to 12 people. The dining area is situated adjacent to the professional galley allowing guests to observe the chef at work if they wish.
On the upper deck of the yacht, HYPNOSQUID’s wheelhouse offers full access to a large open area in the bow. Located aft is a leisure and wellness space including an onboard massage centre, gym, open-air solarium and a cinema room.
With panoramic views, the top deck of the yacht has a large spa pool for relaxing plus forward-facing sunbeds which will allow guests to soak up the sunshine whilst cruising through the azure water of the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.
Characterised by her luxurious amenities and brilliant performance, several renowned Northern European shipyards have already shown serious interest in building this exclusive yacht. Roberto Curtó states: “Just as MAUNA KEA influenced our last concept, HYPNOSQUID is inspired by the mysterious attitude of the squid. She is a work of art, designed to be appreciated by her owner.”
He elaborates: “As always, we don’t just design conventional yachts, instead we take inspiration from ideas which surprise us, or which transmit emotions. Our collaboration with a dynamic and experienced company like SuperYachtsMonaco is a clear sign of our intention to develop within the 60 metres plus market sector.”
SuperYachtsMonaco’s Managing Director Jim Evans adds: “We are working with Roberto to develop the design and to bring our experience as brokers and our understanding of an Owner’s requirement to the table. Our role is to both markets, promote and ultimately sell his design to a client who will either approach us directly or will come with his own broker”.
