Alpha Marine Unveils New Superyacht Concept
Alpha Marine has unveiled a giant 318-foot expedition yacht concept — Future — which was drawn up by the Greek yacht design and naval architecture company to appeal to a new generation of adventurous seafarers. Future is praised for its ability to explore “any place on earth” from the Mediterranean to Antarctica.
The yacht is equipped with a hybrid propulsion system comprising an electric motor, four diesel generators, two azimuth thrusters, and the necessary battery packs. This not only means the yacht has a lower carbon footprint, but it also means that passengers of the yacht have greater independence. Alpha Marine estimates Future will be capable of reaching speeds up to 18 knots at full tilt.
Future is intended to be a “home away from home” and is carefully designed for comfort as well as speed. The yacht can sleep up to 24 guests and 40 crew, while the owner’s suite features its own private deck and a lounge toward the back of the boat and a terrace to the fore.
With five decks, Future allows ample room for entertaining and guests certainly tire of things to do. The yacht features an infinity pool that descends to a beach club and swim platform below. Meanwhile, the upper deck is fitted with tables for alfresco dining and the sundeck hosts a hot tub with a panoramic view of the ocean.
