Cruise/yacht designers and operators are trying whenever possible to deliver something different into the cruise and yacht industry. One of these new ideas is themed yachts and cruise ships. The art of producing a themed cruise ship or yacht is to seamlessly weave a story into every element of the design, and it’s achieved through an extensive consultation with the client during the initial phases of the design process.
The Sea Shadow is one of the most famous SWATH ships – a black, futuristic looking vessel which was the basis for the stealth ship in the Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies. Like our seastead designs, SWATH ships have high stability due to a low waterplane area, and a similar shape to the Sea Shadow is under consideration as a possibility for single-family seastead designs (our next engineering effort).
