Rossinavi Unveils Concept Catamaran Designed By Zaha Hadid Architects

The Italian shipyard Rossinavi’s shows a refreshing willingness to think outside conventual design boundaries as they unveil their latest concept. And I must admit, their catamaran collaboration with Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) that features the unique look of a ZHA design, along with the green-technology and high-quality construction Rossinavi is known for is a breath of fresh air.

In fact, this Rossinavi-built catamaran is all about keeping the air “fresh” and is touted to be the shipyard’s green-technology flagship that features three levels of solar panels are seamlessly integrated into the design to charge a highly efficient battery pack. An artificial intelligence driven control center monitors energy consumption and battery status as well as observes environmental impact so Oneiric can cruise up to 100% of the time in full-electric mode with zero emissions in the right conditions.

Meanwhile, on transatlantic crossings Oneiric is designed to cruise in full-electric mode up to 70% of the time.The solar panels, continually charging the battery pack during daylight hours, are also designed for the periods when the yacht is not in use and, when moored, it can power a family villa on land.

The main deck cockpit is composed of a patio with walls and ceiling which are slightly curved to create an organic continuity that significantly opens the views to the water. Going down the stairs to the swim platforms, the area widens further, shedding the walls and ceiling to give a direct connection with the sea.

Multiple interior and outdoor lounge and dining areas, along with a media room featuring numerous entertainment options are joined by a large owner’s suite and four guest cabins. And as you can see in these renderings, the owner’s suite enjoys a 180-degree view with skylights that also allow light to filter in from above.

In addition to Oneiric’s full-electric mode that’s capable of virtually silent operations, it’s also equipped with Rossinavi Zero Noise technology that isolates and reduces sound at the source.

Now this in one concept I’d love to see become reality. Watch this space.
