SPIRA superyacht incorporates an integrated and intersected helipad on its bow which comfortably lands a Robinson R44 Raven II or Eurocopter AS365, with access through a flush hatch which leads into the interior of the cabin. At the Stern, the volume behind the Jacuzzi houses two jet skis and other water toys—which load into the water via a sliding ramp that positions the jets skis past the swim deck prior to lowering them into the water.

Mega yacht SPIRA has grand mirrored staircases on its starboard and port sides that traverse the main deck through to the top sundeck. These dramatic staircases are accented by two long and gradual mirrored stairs that flank the length of the Jacuzzi at the stern, leading down to the swim deck at the water line.

An A‐Frame structure intersects the three upper decks as one visually continuous surface, flowing into the arced communications tower above the sun deck and then back down to the main deck. This bold surface visually simplifies the architectural composition of the mega‐yacht because of its singular and continuous line.

The bold and dominate A‐Frame frame’s outer edges blend into the superstructure’s exterior glass tangentially; heightening SPIRA’s look of fearsome power and her ability to slice through wind and ocean with streamlined efficiency.

A large swimming area and main sunning area occur at SPIRA’s stern, with striking entrances to the main cabin and state rooms possible through floor to ceiling, angled glass doors.

SPIRA yacht’s high level of functionality, her clean ‘hydro‐dynamic’ form factor, and the emotional resonance of the ‘aqua‐pomorphic’ and nautical metaphors intrinsically imbedded into her design make the mega yacht SPIRA instantly memorable and iconic.
