Futura video. Nature made Virtual
“What Futura offers owners is choice. By approaching sustainability as a design challenge, we’re not waiting for owners to request this technology, we’re presenting them with a concept based on sustainable solutions that currently exist. The answers are out there, the supply is out there, owners just need to want it.” – co-creative director Marnix Hoekstra.
“Clients want to be able to freely roam around their design and look at it from all directions in its natural habitat,” says Futura designer Robin de Vries, who adds that unlike 3D renderings, virtual reality software can highlight multifaceted elements of design detail. “The Futura video demonstrates the bow from all angles, the egg-shaped superstructure, the way light reflects off of the water and the interior’s ambiance and finish. We can easily switch between day and night modes, feel the boat’s connection to the water, and the overall effect is an accurate representation of the client’s yacht before construction begins.”

Yacht design by Vripack
For many owners, the concept of enjoying a ‘home at sea’ is what drives their passion for yachting. But when industry standards and regulatory constraints come into play that simple vision is often lost. Not so for the owner of Vripack’s new 55m yacht, whose desire to use his boat as a family apartment became the founding principle of the entire design.
