Crescere means “to grow” in Latin and it’s about a yacht that turns green, albeit with many styles. The biggest issue is a built-in salt water pool that disappears when not in use. This clever mechanism and very Bond-esque is a 52-foot-by-10-foot lap pool clad with panes of glass. These panes protrude from the foredeck as high speed pumps fill it with salt water. When not in use, it disappears to form a helipad. This concept yacht is a 433-foot showcase of how a modern luxury vessel can be made to get a greener view without sacrificing key luxury factors.
Hence the “vanishing” pool mentioned above is just one of the many features of this superyacht. Of course, you can’t miss the green exterior which is distinctive, while the design itself is very modern and has some stunning details in it. It’s a sharp and futuristic nod to the future of superyachts. The whole theme of this concept is to create a spacious and airy feel as well as a place where guests can relax with clever use of space.
The Crescere Concept Yacht has its own tropical garden and greenhouse core. The lounge area has an airy feel with a “green” theme and a minimalist but elegant feel. The lounge area is powered by an intelligent irrigation system that is autonomously controlled by customer-specific software and a number of sensors. In order to give the guests the feeling of being one with nature, there are massive glass surfaces in the fuselage, while the entire interior is bathed in natural light. The glass covering the center of the fuselage also creates a passage to let in fresh air. Finally, there’s a tender that can carry cars, and that’s very cool and something handy if you want your car collection at arm’s length!
Interestingly, for the hull, the designers of the Crescere went for a retro design that resembles a classic sailboat. Of course, with such green references, the performance in the area of conventional sources could not be found, since in the case of the Crescere there is a hybrid drive train consisting of electric and diesel. This is accompanied by biofuel generators and solar panels that charge the large battery banks. The electric motors are used for everyday purposes while the diesel power source is used when additional speed is required. While the Crescere has the feel of a massive luxury yacht, her speed is 40 miles per hour, similar to smaller vessels.
The Crescere was designed by J. David Weiss and is a master class in combining traditional luxury and modern minimalism. Overall, the crescere impressed with its stunning design, huge glass-oriented deck cover, and unique herbal theme.
