SABDES 50m Axe Bow Superyacht Design

The newest SABDES design came about due to many enquiries from clients about producing an exciting, stylish, advanced luxury yacht, efficient in fuel and emissions, with an intent to be environmentally sensitive in both the vessel’s building and cruising life.

The design is based around an advanced slender hullform with an axe bow, offering superior seakeeping, minimised wave ’slamming’, economical 25 knot performance, and long distance range. The external styling is contemporary agressive; Sharp edges and sweeping lines intersect glass windows in the superstructure. The bridge windows sweep up to become the upper sundeck glass sides. To marry the past with present, the use of wood panels has been added into the sides nearing the transom.

The easily driven hull, proposed with a hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system, offers a much higher cruise speed than an equivalent length displacement yacht. The propulsion system uses a shaft motor/generator designed to put surplus energy back into its battery banks. The yacht’s total power consumption will be kept to a minimum by careful consideration of every technical element throughout.

For instance, the vessel will have LED lighting, there will be more reliance on natural cooling to support the air conditioning system, and insulation and window materials are carefully selected. At anchor or in port, silent running can be achieved, by switching off the generators and running on the main battery banks. The vessel also has the ability to silently manouver in and out of harbour.
