In partnership with naval architects Blohm+Voss, the yachts are inspired by their "Mother Ship" (see what I mean about science fiction?), a 128m concept that has given birth to the five smaller projects. The design team used hydrodynamic research to shape the hulls, varying the thickness throughout the interwoven exoskeletons. According to ZHA, traditional yachts adhere to a "horizontal order," but the exoskeleton works as a connection between the many decks, as well as between the five different yachts. "Each will vary in the density or intensity of lattices, space on deck, the possible inclusion of a sundeck on the bow or the loggia and balcony forming the exterior pool as well as a bow with unique expression according to the conceptual design," says Blohm+Voss.
