Vripack’s FLOW targets adventurers
SNEEK ~ The interesting thing about Vripack Naval Architects is that after producing more than 7,000 designs to date, the Dutch studio still conjures up cutting edge, jaw-dropping yacht projects. Consider its latest: FLOW, a 51m steel and aluminum concept yacht designed to explore the edges of the Seven Seas in peerless comfort and safety.
It accommodates up to 10 guests and a 10-strong crew and features a family deck with a gym, an “all-glass beach house” a dining room “treasure cabinet” (containing for instance artifacts from past voyages), “gullwing lookouts” that grant unobstructed forward views and a “sports bar.” The hull shows an eye-catching 3D graphical pattern that the owner can design.
Vripack says the FLOW design “offers a fresh interpretation of the attributes most frequently requested” by clients. Vripack was founded in 1961. It is a full-service design, naval architecture and engineering studio that to date has produced over 7,000 projects. In recent years it has been at pains to develop a kit building method that significantly shortens construction time.
