PROJECTS » In Mind » Obsydian


The Obsydian is a breathtaking motor-yacht that features the slick design of much smaller boats, while being spacious for all the passengers on-board. The boat has been studied in such a way as to offer complete privacy to the vip guest with individual balconies for all the vip cabins.

The hullform and the machinery selection have been made in such a way as to minimise the carbon footprint of the yacht. Therefore it has been decided to use a complex generator arrangement that provides electricity to the boat, the hotel is always operating while the prime movers (azimuthian podded propulsors) receive as much electricity as required by the operation of the boat, therefore keeping consumption to a minimum.

The exterior design has been aerodynamically optimised for the speed and operational profile of the boat, while the hullform is designed to provide very good seakeeping characteristics with power concumtion to a minimum. This is achieved through a series of clever hydrodynamic interventions in the traditional motor-yacht hull design by Dr. A. Mantouvalos.
VELOS Design once again has presented an excellent and well balanced design that cannot be regarded as ordinary.
