Introducing the Exo
Published: Friday, 03 August 2012
Superyacht design firm Claydon Reeves have teamed up with Dykstra Naval Architects to create a futuristic 46-metre sailing sloop like no other.
Inspired by the shapes and forms of nature, Exo is the result of a more organic and natural approach, pushing the boundaries of traditional yacht design and eschewing straight lines in favour of twisting curves. A carbon fibre ‘chassis’ mimics the exo-skeleton of marine invertebrates, and its structure implies the interconnected roots of a large tree.
Below deck, the chassis and its huge glass windows evoke the feeling of being inside the ribcage of a large aquatic creature. The hull has been designed with the aim of allowing far more light into the interior, as well as giving occupants unparalleled views of the passing environments. Counterbalancing the strong carbon fibre is the softness of natural woods, wools and silks across the interior.
