Rodriguez Design unveils new 96m Samana yacht concept


Spanish studio Rodriguez Design has unveiled a new 95.6-metre (313-foot) superyacht concept named Samana. The design features a minimalist halo-shaped arch that runs along the superstructure and down to the hull.

The yacht would be built with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure and offer a range of 8,000 nautical miles cruising at 14 knots with a top speed of 20 knots.

Josh Rodriguez, owner of Rodriguez Design, commented: “The key idea when developing the vessel was in line with the studio’s current design language: to create a yacht with simple, flowing lines that have character on their own, without the need to over-stylize or clutter the yacht with inconsistent surfaces.

There are a total of seven cabins for 14 guests, while crew accommodation is offered for 31 people in 18 cabins. The superyacht has a bathing platform with a beach club that houses a bar and a chill-out area.

Stairs on both sides of the beach club lead directly to a sunbathing area on the main deck and a U-shaped seating area for up to ten people which can be used for cocktails or meals. The main deck also houses an outdoor bar, a gym and a spa and beauty area.

The crew accommodation is on the lower deck, where there is also a storage area with space for tenders up to 10 m (32 ft) in length, a wide variety of toys including sub- sailors and jet skis, and a diving room equipped with a compressor.

The bow can also be used as a tactile helipad large enough to accommodate an Airbus ACH 160. Below the helipads, two butterfly doors open and provide access to the service and crew tenders and rescue tenders.
