Triple 3: a concept by Victory Design

Triple 3 is a “cargo-ship” that carries glass containers with an essential look, places where “over-marine” life takes place, like an aquarium.

The linear superstructure with pure geometric forms is an authentic piece of architecture referencing in its formal approach to Le Corbusier and to the rationalist architecture of the contemporary Richard Meier, grafting onto a futuristic steel hull with strong marine connotations and soft shapes.

The noble relationship between the ship and the building is renewed. It’s the place where the marine and the earthly world are summarized in full respect of their respective needs and functions. A different relationship from that of contemporary yacht design, which often ends up assimilating the ship to a simple object of industrial design.

The unusual naval shape, with the bridge that stands imposing in defense of the ship, presents an unusual layout for a yacht, with a strong shift of the habitable volumes of the dead work towards the bow.

The reduced presence of uprights on the large glazed surfaces, which respect one of the cardinal principles of the architecture of the first decades of the century, or the large ribbon windows, gives an exceptional panoramic view to the interior.

The management of solar irradiation and heat exchange are well-considered aspects in the geometry of the dead work, which protects most of the glazed surfaces from direct exposure, without penalizing visibility. One of the wide open decks allows the safe landing of a helicopter of considerable capacity and can accommodate other types of vehicles, marine or not, becoming an elegant Mediterranean terrace in the sundeck, with exclusive shading systems and teak lining ecological.

Formal and functional connecting element is the fin shaped mast, which pierces the upper deck cantilever, supporting it. The yacht has 6 covered bridges and an external bridge; the “Owner’s Private quarters”, in the proposed layout, have a panoramic and independent upper deck, but no less scenic are the guest cabins, 4 of which are VIPs that include a large walk-in closet, a study and a bathroom with double shower, double sink and a comfortable Jacuzzi.

The layout is studied in detail and includes generous indoor living areas, a beach club with access to the sea, a day spa with massage room, sauna and turkish bath, a media center with a projection room and a library.

The location of the control panel enjoys perfect visibility thanks to the correct position of the room, at the top of the bow, with lateral cantilevered control wings and adjacent to the commander’s quarters. The crew rooms are equipped with a mini-gym, a comfortable dinette with a relaxation area and can accommodate up to 16 members. These are very versatile interiors, which can also be made in a totally custom way, both as regards the arrangement of the volumes and the choice of décor.

The naval architecture has been treated in detail and benefits from the experiences in the naval tank and the results obtained by Victory Design in the CFD numerical fluid dynamics. The hull, displacement type characterized by an excellent efficiency and sea-keeping, presents in addition to the bow with bulb, also a special geometry of the aft body, which houses the innovative propulsion system with propellers semi-submersible Flexidrive®. This system, driven by two endothermic engines connected to as many electric motors and covered by international patent, allows increases in propulsive efficiency, resulting from tests carried out in the naval tank, ranging from 13 to over 20% more than traditional systems with immersed propellers.

The decision to equip the unit with semi-submerged propellers, an absolute novelty in the field of displacement boats, and with a hybrid propulsion system, demonstrates the concrete attention given to environmental aspects: in addition to greater safety due to the redundancy of the systems, which would guarantee the yacht the AVM-IAPS certification (Independent Alternative Propulsion System), the high efficiency translates into a reduction in consumption and harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

The yacht also satisfies the WINTERIZATION RiNa notation that is assigned to ships sailing for long periods of time in geographical areas characterized by very low ambient temperatures (below -30 ° C). This notation guarantees the operation of the ship in a safe and continuous manner at very low temperatures.

The GREEN STAR 3 DESIGN notation, necessary to obtain WINTERIZATION, guarantees the environmental protection of the delicate Arctic areas.
