The Dutch firm Sea Level Engineering have unveiled their latest and most radical superyacht design to date: The Future Concept CF8.
The visually stunning CF8 design, standing for “cars and family in 80 metres”, is designed with families in mind and has capacity for up to eight of the owner’s vehicles to park up in an onboard showroom.
The many special amenities on board include an amazingly generous car showroom for up to eight luxury cars, cinema, a large swimming pool which can be transformed into a dance floor, a helipad, a wellness area including a sauna and a top class gym, eight guest cabins and a navy fleet of water toys including a miniature Deepflight Dragon submarine.
This unique and breath-taking vessel is destined for a billionaire who has great preference for innovative new designs and needs to be able to take his or her luxury car collection on board to drive in the new destinations they visit.
The most jaw-dropping feature of this luxury cruiser, is an onboard swimming pool that’s been designed to incorporate a waterfall that flows from the top deck, cutting directly through the centre of the ship. Other features include two lifts, a helipad on the fore deck and a wastewater treatment system.
CF8 boasts a strong outer shape with strong design lines that refer to the character lines of sports cars, with the curved centre volume that brings a counter posing shape ‘visually carried’ by the outer shape. For this element the studio took inspiration from the showroom of Louwman Exclusive Cars in the Netherlands.
This showroom is captured in a 5km sound barrier along the high way, built out of glass panels. A centre volume with a skin built out of glass provides a great opportunity to bring light into the living spaces, as well as a unique chance to accommodate a car collection that can be admired by people passing by.
The extreme width of the yacht offers great stability at sea, providing guests and crew with maximum comfort. CF8 can accommodate up to 12 guests across 8 tastefully appointed VIP cabins fitted with en-suite facilities and walk-in wardrobes. The owner’s suite can be found on the owner’s deck, including 250 square metres of private deck space, and there is also accommodation for a crew of 18.
Sea Level Engineering claims that CF8 would be capable of reaching a top speed of 18 knots and would have a range of 5,000 nautical miles. While it could be years before CF8 is realised, yachting fans can still expect to see some striking vessels should they make their way to Monaco and the surrounding area this summer.
