Schöpfer Yachts, the next generation yacht design company was founded in 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, who is 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.

Schöpfer Yachts is already out with their first design Oculus. Oculus is a 250 foot long vessel designed by the owner and founder of the company, E. Kevin Schöpfer. Oculus has a peculiar design, a design one of its kind, which the yacht industry has not seen till now. Oculus’ exterior design resembles a jaw and eye socket bow structure of large oceanic fish or sea mammal. Though the design features a reverse bow configuration, the yacht preserves its structure and stability with utmost grace. Designed to accommodate 12 guests, the yacht has been made with the finest luxurious equipments and stability. The propulsion system of the yacht facilitates it with a maximum speed of 25 knots. The yacht has been designed to allow long distance voyages.

The out of the world interior of the yacht is something to look out for. The yacht has got a 12 foot high ceiling in the main saloon. Moreover, it also features a cylindrical double height dining room, central stair and elevator tube, and seemingly anatomical ceiling and floor lighting extensions giving high definition to the seating areas. There is a common stairway that connects all the levels of the yacht. However there is an additional stairway that connects the second owner’s stairs to the third level aft private salon and deck / water feature.

The second level of the yacht is fully dedicated to the owner. It features a highly luxurious owner’s suite. The futuristic interior design features a series of four freestanding tubes that divides the living areas and bed chambers to separate zones. The suite is also equipped with house bath and all the storage necessities.

The third level is the topmost level, from where the navigation activities take place and which also features a separate captain’s quarters. The pilothouse is located at the forward of the level. In addition to that, the level also comprises of generous open decks with separate water features at the forward and aft for the convenience of the guests.

Apart from the amazingly designed bow, the yacht features a special low rider profile. This new innovative style allows for new side recreational areas, alternate dockage access and light cruising openness. Immaculate safety measures are also taken to protect the low regions from rough sea conditions. The design features lateral retractable side panels which can be closed during heavier wave actions.

The above design is finalized and would be implemented soon after the ship’s specification and plans are completed.
