Named after the Maori word for ‘discovery’, Tuhura is a substantial concept design with a radically different approach to hull design. Commissioned by Oceanco, the 115m proposal resembles a colossal canoe, with curvaceous light coloured hull paired with a dark gloss superstructure and a wraparound single-level deck. The canoe-style design approach was allegedly inspired by traditional Maori vessels, and the entire boat pays homage to that culture’s long, long history of ocean exploration. MY/ TUHURA Motor Yacht Project 2018 LENGTH — 115.00m  (377.29ft) GROSS TONNAGE — n/a BUILDER — Oceanco INTERIOR — Achille Salvagni EXTERIOR — Lobanov Design  

The exterior was created by superyacht specialists Lobanov Design, while Achille Salvagni Designs have overseen the proposed interior. Throughout the generous open-plan spaces Salvagni has used natural materials like tatami and teak floors, pairing them with bronze and gunmetal to create a warm, decidedly unsynthetic look. www.lobanovdesign.com / www.achillesalvagni.com / www.oceancoyacht.com
