What do you get when an owner is as adventurous in his cruising plans as he is in planning the layout? And, what do you get when he?s equally enterprising about the systems powering his yacht? You get a revolution?more to the point, Revolution, a 154-footer (47-meter) based on a concept by Vripack, but thoroughly the owner?s custom creation. Furthermore, you get a megayacht that will feature at least one system that isn?t even aboard any vessel of any kind yet.
Revolution draws largely on Flow, publicized in 2015. The Vripack team started with the concept of an especially active, and wonderfully unconventional, family. The unconventional aspect was put on full display via circular patterns along the hull and superstructure. They were perforations in the steel, to create unusual additional windows on the world. In addition, Flow had gullwing-like extensions aft on the bridge deck. Fitted with glass walls fore and aft, they were akin to observation areas hovering above the water.
Revolution retains much of the profile, including the perforations and gullwing extensions. But, similar to the family Vripack envisioned for Flow, he, his wife, and his kids are unconventional. That explains why the upper deck has a huge gym, 301 square feet (28 square meters), and a sports bar. Even more unusual, Revolution?s owner plans to take the wheel on occasion. He can do it first thing in the morning, if he wishes, since the master is steps away. A treadmill accompanies the wheelhouse equipment for his use, too. The master bath, meanwhile, sits in one of the gullwing extensions.
