The M51 Concepts Forge superyacht even includes a “molten staircase”
The new 262-foot M51 Concepts Forge superyacht has been unveiled by Anthony Gasson of design studio M51. Resembling a volcano’s shadow on the ocean, the result of the design is rather striking due to its crisp, angular orange decks with an obsidian black pyramid-shaped superstructure.
The unique design of the M51 Concepts Forge superyacht includes an ice-class steel hull, in what Gasson describes as a “molten staircase”. Featured is a sky lounge with vaulted ceilings thanks to the pyramid shape of the superstructure, and a master cabin’s top deck that features a private panoramic glass ceiling.
With a substantial volume of 1,750 GT and a beam of 41 feet, the Forge has been kept relatively straightforward to balance the striking facade, according to Gasson. There’s a variety of natural materials and chic modern furniture displayed throughout the yacht.
Other luxurious amenities include a counter-current swimming pool, day lounge, gym, and sauna. It also features a sensory deprivation tank which may be utilized as a peaceful haven from the outer world. The touch-and-go helipad is located on the foredeck and the full-beam garage aft, which includes port and starboard hatches, can fit all the tenders and extras.
Glasson’s M51 Concepts Forge superyacht was built with the intention to be exploration-ready. The hybrid diesel-electric engine should give her a cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles.
Even though it’s only a concept, the designer estimates that if it were to be built, the superyacht would take between 2.5 to 3 years to complete. The idea has received a lot of attention since its reveal, despite the fact that there hasn’t yet been any real interest from buyers. Check out more renderings of the Forge below.
