Instead of being at odds with the environment, MCM Designstudio has conceived of a nomadic island that transports one to an unmatched equilibrium. “Live on an island designed to your dreams and be free to explore beyond the horizon,” states Milena Cvijanovich, “harnessing the power of the wind, the sun and the waves.”

Island(E)motion yacht is a residential and hospitality complex. The 180m2 VIP suites have been designed to meet exacting standards of harmonious interior design. The client-connoisseur will appreciate an environment decorated with inspired furniture in a range of ecological materials that render rooms into works of art. The roof and decks are both beautiful and practical. Landscaped in verdant green, they give one a sense of relaxing in an organic garden, while serving to filter rainwater and provide interior insulation.

The 4 decks of Island(E)motion yacht feature use of both recycled and recyclable construction materials for their superstructure, with an LOA of up to 180m and a beam of up to 40m. The yacht’s cruising speed is 10 knots. A gyro-stabiliser system will deliver excellent rolling motion attenuation by up to 95% while the vessel is at anchor, drifting, alongside, loitering or at transit speed.

Energy required to power life on the Island(E)motion yacht will be generated by a unique combination of solar and thermal panels, as well as by wind energy. New propeller technology and fuel systems will reduce power consumption. As a result, the water bodies classified as UNESCO heritage sites will be places of paradise readily accessible to Island(E)motion.
