Sorgiovanni Explores New Frontier With 99m Megayacht Concept
Designer of the Singapore-owned White Rabbit, Australia’s Sam Sorgiovanni has introduced a spectacular 99m luxury expedition yacht, Frontier.
Australia’s Sorgiovanni Designs has revealed a 99m luxury expedition yacht concept, Frontier, with a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and ice-breaker reversed bow. Sam Sorgiovanni, whose designs include the 84m Singapore-owned trimaran White Rabbit, conceived Frontier to ‘discover … with the soul of an explorer’.
The star attraction is the 15m helipad, as the deck can slide backwards on hydraulic jacks to receive a helicopter and retract after use. The vast master suite on the upper deck has direct access to the 9m pool forward of the helipad, while there are six double guest cabins on the lower deck and accommodation for 34 crew.
The main deck includes a dining room for 20 and a cinema, while the observation deck has an outdoor bar, Jacuzzi and sunbathing area. A double-storey beach club features a bar and relaxation area, massage room, sauna and steam room, and a Jacuzzi with lounge beds, and leads to an enormous garage.
Frontier is predicted to reach 19-20 knots with twin diesel engines, but Sorgiovanni says the yacht features a range of innovations designed to reduce her footprint. “Making environmentally and socially responsible products the new normal for all consumers should be a top priority for all companies today.”
