Instead, the flat satellite panels are hidden away behind exterior walls, resulting in a much lighter and purer aesthetic. Enhancing CODAG – an advanced propulsion system which combines diesel engines and gas turbines – as well as controllable-pitch propellers, the “L’Amage” superyacht produces 95,000 hp that pushes it to a max speed of 32 knots. Additionally, the water vehicle has a fuel capacity of 1,500 tons and approximately 6,000 nautical miles of independence.

It was our aim to create a synergetic balance of functionality, beauty, engineering, and design. symmetry reflects a genuine owner-centered philosophy of the yacht as a custom-designed private estate, moving freely over the world’s oceans, offering an abundance of space to welcome beloved ones to indulge, work, play and enjoy life.” Thanks to the symmetrical setup and shape of the hull, ‘Symmetry’ can accommodate the owner and his or her guests in a way that is rarely shown in yachts. the six decks can host 34 guests and 48 crew, with every deck built for a specific function and character. SEYD generated a 3D model of the project and shared this with the naval architect at BMT nigel gee who confirmed technical feasibility of the ‘Symmetry’ yacht.
