Brightest STAR in Yachting Sky

Brightest STAR in Yachting Sky

Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee have presented an avant-garde yacht design named Project STAR. Measuring 132m in length and over 60m in height, STAR’s technical development features a symmetrically fore and aft double ended hullform, with all-electric architecture and fully azimuthing propulsion.


Coupled with a dynamic positioning system, STAR would rotate within her own length to track the arc of the sun free from the constraints of traditional anchors.

Brightest STAR in Yachting SkyIgor Lobanov, Yacht Designer, said: “The initial idea of the Star belongs to Alex Malybaev from FIRMA branding agency. Alex and I exchanged some thoughts about yachting and came to the conclusion that to those outside the marine industry, all yachts look the same: It seems that modern architecture, product design and car design have no influence on yachts. Malybaev penned an idea “on a napkin” and asked me if a yacht could be like that. I looked at the sketch and set to work. The idea was so great that I wanted to prove it could become a yacht.”

Collaborating with BMT Nigel Gee for naval architecture and to assess technical feasibility, STAR has been developed as a private yacht, or more radically, as the world’s most exclusive private hotel, redeploying to the world’s iconic marine cities and events worldwide. STAR rethinks both artistic form and content.

Brightest STAR in Yachting SkyJames Roy, Yacht Design Director of BMT Nigel Gee, said: “Historically yacht design has been described as both an art and a science. STAR is a tangible view of a 21st century interpretation of art and science. We are fortunate to live in an era where technology makes the delivery of bolder designs more possible – for clients who are adventurous innovators anything is truly possible.”
