transitioning across the luxury transport sector after considerable work in the aviation field like the IXION windowless jet, technicon has conceptualized the ‘carat 187’, a dramatic 187-foot superyacht. the design once again offers luxury in mobility yet does so with a focus on the sense of occasion and distinct exclusivity that only boating can offer.

technicon designed with the aim of breaking the norms in superyacht design. from afar, ‘carat 187’ displays an impressive silhouette on the water. however, up close, the uniqueness of the exterior truly comes to light. an asymmetrical shell mixes sculptural shapes on one side and softer, simpler surfaces on the other, creating two facets with different personalities: introvert and extrovert. the result is atypical and exaggerated yet still ultra-luxurious.
this exclusive elegance was paramount to techicon’s design. within the precise technical package of the superyacht, sublime detailing and surface treatment has been applied. as a symbol of luxury, a ‘red carpet’ theme inspired many features, most notably the two dramatic articulated stairs at the rear. whilst cruising the seas, these details deliver a sensational visual and tactile experience for the owner and guests.
