A concept designed by Ricky Smith, Dr Andrew Baglin and Stuart Friezer Marine. EPOCH is a five-decked and 80 meters long luxury yacht that would be built with an aluminium hull and superstructure. She has a 25 knots top speed. Her innovative design features a « high performance hull » in order to allow « advances seakeeping stability ». Her accommodation would be for 20 guests across 10 staterooms (presidential suite, two VIP suites and eight guest staterooms), including an owners’ penthouse (with dedicated cocktail bar and private dining facilities so that it can entertain large groups of friends or clients without leaving the apartment) and private walk-around exercise tech surrounded by « curtain glass » providing 360-degree views. The crew quarters would see a staff of 24 accommodated in 12 cabins. EPOCH also features an helipad above and a 13 meters beam beach club on the lower deck, as well as a garage and a jacuzzi. According to Ricky Smith, the design centres around ensuring dining and socializing facilities sit on every level of the yacht, one of the key features being the panoramic entertainment lounge, a theatre, bistro cocktail bar and butlers’ kitchen.

• Among the eight guest staterooms, there is a Presidential suite with its own saloon and dining table, two VIP staterooms each with direct access to private reception facilities.
• An elevator connects all floors and provides quick access from the guest accommodation to the beach club.
• The sizeable tender garage will also allow for plenty of water toys wherever M/Y EPOCH cruises, with side-hatches in the bulwark for quick launch and retrieval.
• Another unique element in the design is a 360° glass curtain around the Owner’s penthouse, ensuring sweeping views throughout. The helipad on the deck above leads down to the Owner’s deck, making it a hub of social activity.
