“The interconnected root structures of large trees seemed like a good starting point as the basis for a yacht,” according to the release. “Not only does the long vertical trunk represent the mast, but the root ball forms the hull, providing strength and the support for the vertical structure.
“We also considered the skeletal structure of small but strong creatures. In nature it is the exo-skeleton which provides the chassis for these organisms. These exo-skeletons do not employ straight lines but instead have twisting and turning curves which imbue the creature with optimal strength, their forms defined by millions of years of evolution.”
The deck caulking is based upon the radiating growth rings of a tree trunk, which illuminate at night. The twin helm positions grow out of the bulwarks like tree branches.
The yacht sleeps eight guests and up to eight crew.
