Guido de Groot explains that inspiration for the Streamliner yacht came from “streamlined” designs by Raymond Loewy (November 5, 1893 – July 14, 1986) such as his famous Bullitt nosed train designs for the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Greyhound Scenic cruiser bus and Studebaker cars. She evokes a golden era with her elegant streamlined form, and classic features.
The concept of the Streamliner yacht itself is however very novel. She has an unique split level layout that allows the owner’s cabin, situated forward in front of the raised pilot house, to feature a “balcony/bathing platform” situated amidships with unique access to the sea. This bathing platform, which can be raised and lowered, is situated in a watertight section of the yacht which also incorporates a sauna.
The luxury yacht Streamliner offers large open spaces with comfortable outdoor relaxation areas making her ideal for carefree cruising. The large sundeck area has been divided into several stepped levels including a bar area that is connected to a pantry area situated in the large funnel shaped housing. This funnel shaped housing also has on top a helm station area that has a crow’s nest function as well. Forward of the funnel is a large sunbathing area and a whirlpool. In order to keep the lines of the yacht clean, a large tender and toys are placed in an aft garage with an integrated slipway.
