Schöpfer Yachts, the next generation yacht design company was founded in the year 2008. A US based company dedicated to the pursuit of advanced yacht aesthetics and technology, Schöpfer Yachts is among a new breed of yacht companies in the pursuit of innovation and excellence. With the world’s finest naval architects and shipyards, the company intends to explore a wide range of design venues while insuring that the designs meet and exceed the highest level of maritime standards. Schöpfer Yachts with their futuristic design and next generation models are ready to woo the global yachting community and its prospective clients.

After Oculus, the company is out with their new design plan Infinitas. Just like Oculus, Infinitas is also designed by the owner of the company E. Kevin Schopfer with special inputs from Sparkman Stephens, Naval Architects. The main feature of the design of the yacht is that it personifies the symbol of infinity, which is abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation. This special kind of design has been achieved by carving out stern and mid section elliptical deck constructs. The support for such structure is provided with the help of the central structure known as spine, which hold the loop infinity symbol together to allow the yacht’s superstructure to seamlessly flow within itself. Moreover, the special advantage of the beautifully designed infinity symbol is the realignment of the traditional functional areas.

Due to the realignment of the traditional features the yacht’s main deck living room and dining room are detached from each other. The dining room is shifted forward and is separated from the living room with a massive pool deck in between. This kind of new design facilitates a direct access to the dining room and kitchen areas. Thus the whole area altogether becomes beneficial for some extended recreational activities. Moreover, the design also provides a facility to attach a living room or a saloon, according to the owner’s requirement.

Another fascinating feature of the whole design is the three wonderful ways that are imbibed in the layout to transverse or cross the pool deck.

The first way is through the direct outside bridge or walkway which bisects the pool and connects the two sides. Moreover, the bridge also has underwater openings in its support system, which allows swimmers to dive into the pool. The best part is that in case of dearth for space at times of special occasions, the pool can be covered to form an extended venue.

The second way to cross the pool is through an overhead sky bridge which connects to the main stairs and elevator. In order to prevent any guests from complaining about inadequate light, the skyway is thoroughly made of clear glass floor and transparent ceiling, which allows the natural light to enter the pool region below.

The third way of crossing the pool is through a low level lounge, which features glass portals into the pool.

The interior design is as spell-bounding as the exterior one. The main level of the yacht contains two aforementioned decks, living room, dining room, kitchen, storage, and bow deck. The bow deck also features an added facility of helicopter pad. The bold futuristic style of the interior designs reflects an intense minimalist palette with a dash of attitude.

Moreover, the interior is as spacious and luxurious as its gets. The main saloon features a 12 foot ceiling height, which not only gives an “open” feel to the interior but also keeps its well ventilated. Also, the shiny, fully glazed walls create an “island” kind feel within the yacht.

A series of guest suites and a secondary bow deck are situated at the second level, while the grand owner’s suites, including a sky bridge, pilot house, and an upper deck are occupied on the third level. All the lower decks have been dedicated to crew quarters, storage and mechanical, engine room activities.

Infinitas has been designed to accommodate 12 guests, excluding the crew.
