Linea's superstructure references Italy's classic cars

The aim of Claydon Reeves’ latest project was to create a superyacht that embodies classic Italian traditions with modern design.

The new 90m concept yacht, Linea, from the British design studio incorporates a large, sculptural sundeck with many seating and lounging areas.

“Project Linea demonstrates how the collaboration of a design studio and shipyard can produce a superyacht of functional and aesthetic beauty,” said Claydon Reeves co-founder, Mike Reeves. “By embedding the engineering realities in the general arrangement and exterior we have produced a design that is both bold and unique but also completely build-able.”

He added: “The superstructure is crisply drawn, referencing the many classic cars that have become a hallmark of Italy.”

One of the yacht’s more unusual features is the owner's forward deck, which can be privately accessed through the master cabin, a space designed so it is not overlooked by the bridge.

On the sundeck, the mast structure provides the necessary space to support equipment such as the radar domes, while also providing shade over the exterior seating area and hot tub.

The design also includes a helipad, an open-air cinema, fire pit, gym and plunge pool.
