This is the Global 550 and it’s the future of superyacht luxury

This is Dynamiq’s Global 550 superyacht, and it’s set to revolutionize the high-end world of yachting.

Not only is it a luxury home away from home, but it’s been designed as an ultra-efficient globetrotting superyacht.

The 180-foot vessel features a strong and light all-aluminum hull.

And on top of this, it’s powered by two 625kW Volvo Penta heavy-duty engines.

These engines give the vessel a range in excess of 5,000 nautical miles (9,260 kilometers) on a single tank. 

The Global 550 comes equipped with 21,000-liter freshwater tanks and ample storage for greater autonomy.

Four stabilizer fins – compared to the standard two – offer increased comfort during ocean crossings.

The standout feature on this superyacht has to be the special attention that’s been paid to nature observation.

There are panoramic lounges on every deck – the highest being a crow’s nest for further-reaching views – as well as underwater drones, and even a telescope. 

There’s also a spacious owner’s office on the main deck forward that doubles as an observation lounge.

Other features include a commercially-certified helipad, and an exuberant spa area complete with hammam and sauna.

For the interior, the Italian shipyard teamed up with ZROBIM architects.

Influenced by the idea of “natural minimalism”, natural elements are included throughout such as Americak oak, wenge and dark Shimo ash.

According to the studio, elements of the interior are inspired by the shape of a glacier and mountain ranges.

For example, illuminated Golden Queen onyx washbasins resemble a glacier going under water.

Meanwhile, textured stones such as Arabescato Orobico Grigio and Spider green marbles are reminiscent of remote mountain ranges.

The Global 550 superyacht has a price tag of $28,721,250 with an anticipated 30-month build time from the contract being signed.

Dynamiq’s stand at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show will serve as the world premier stage for this groundbreaking vessel.
