The Komorebi concept trimaran superyacht is a 282-foot sailing yacht concept, penned by the Parisian design firm VPLP.
VPLP designed Komorebi to be one of the most light-enhanced superyachts on the water. The interior features floor-to-ceiling windows that literally wrap around the main deck. With the open floor plans and a large saloon, the interior looks more like an Asian-inspired Frank Lloyd Wright design than a typical superyacht. From the main saloon, one can see a small garden with a living tree and a swimming pool with the ocean beyond.
The yacht is green in terms of its propulsion systems as well. Automated wing sails help deliver speeds up to 15 knots in a 20-knot wind, so owners can cruise for weeks with minimal engine support. VPLP estimates that, in hybrid engine mode, the yacht will save 30 percent in fuel consumption during a transatlantic crossing. Solar panels across the yacht regularly recharge its batteries.
Beyond the yacht’s expansive beam, the trimaran design lets the owners store a small navy of water toys in its three hulls. Tenders, small sailboats, a submarine and more can be easily launched from the hull interiors. The vast swim platform at the transom connects to an interior beach club, with openings to the water on either side between the outer hulls. A sky-deck provides space for alfresco dining and entertaining.
