Citroen DS – Concept Design

I started my company late in 2012. One of the first people that I pitched for work for was a car enthusiast. His particular interest was in Citroen cars, with a love of the classic Citroen DS from the 1950’s. He asked me to design a concept for a modern day version of this futuristic and elegant car. Although the project never progressed past the first visual (top), I decided recently to develop the design into a 3d model, which you see here.

Concept car – Tilting Alfa Romeo

After having developed a number of more unusual looking tilting vehicles, I thought it might be interesting to explore designing a more conventional car. It still would have the same tilting into corners suspension system. Arguably, Alfa Romeo is not the most likely brand to have this type of suspension, but it was a bit of fun.

95 Metre Motor Yacht Carib – New visuals

CARIB

Motor Yacht Carib (named after the fierce indigenous tribe that gave the Caribbean it’s name) is a concept 95M motor yacht.

Features

MY Carib has two swimming pools, as is often the case on yachts of her size. One is situated on the main deck in the aft, the other is situated on the sundeck, in the forward part. The sundeck pool is raised from the deck and features walls that are in the form of a large lattice. This allows the pool to have glass panels which in turn allow for light to come into the pool and for light to produce interesting patterns on the deck. A similar idea has been incorporated on the main deck pool, where the lower part of the pool also has partly glazed walls. In this case the light coming from above the main deck can filter down into the beach club. It is also a way of linking the swimmers in the pool to the folk that may be lounging the the beach club on the deck below, in a way that is both fun and friendly.

Continuing the theme of linking the decks visually, the open plan main salon/dining room is a split level space which is open above the formal dining space and which links to the library and study in the deck above. The interior like the exterior will be contemporary without being excessively minimalist. The interior design will be relaxed, smart and elegant.

 I named her Carib—a gentle nod to my Colombian roots, as the Caribs were a fierce tribe that lived in the islands of the Caribbean and on the mainland of the Americas.

Carib has two swimming pools, one aft on the main deck and the other forward on the sundeck. The latter is raised from the deck and surrounded by a lattice wall. It allows light to penetrate the glass pool while creating interesting shadows on deck. A similar idea has been incorporated on the lower section of the main deck pool, which allows light to filter down into the beach club. It helps to connect swimmers in the pool with guests lounging on the deck below.

Revisiting old friends – Tilting Quad

This small vehicle has a special feature. It leans into corners, like a motorcycle! Intended as a fun machine for use in town or in the countryside. It could be a petrol-electric hybrid (using a rotary engine mid/rear mounted) and assisted by an electric motor driving the rear wheels. It can carry two people, in tandem (one in front, the other behind). Although this idea seems a little crazy, I have built two trikes that operate on the same leaning suspension principle, so I know it works…

Sheerline 1090 Soft top and Hard top

Wroxham Marine have taken on the services of Andrew Trujillo Design to help them design their new range of Category B rive/estuary cruisers for their Sheerline brand. This collaboration has already borne fruit with the 1090 HT (Hard top) with the first model made and exhibited at this year’s London Boat show. Interest has been keen on this model, but a number of clients have expressed a desire for a soft top version. The images below are the concept visuals for the new soft top. The images that also follow beyond are for the 1090 Hard top.

Interior visuals for Superyacht Continuum concept

Motor yacht Continuum was an exciting project. However, it felt right to create some visuals for her interior. Below are a few made of the Pilothouse and Main salon. As I create other areas, I will add to these.

Superyacht Continuum

Andrew Trujillo Design has continued the creative collaboration with Adam Younger on this new concept design, named MY Continuum.

42M MY Continuum

She again features a stepped hull (with twin steps) and on this occasion has been designed to incorporate triple water jets driven by three MTU 16 Cylinder diesels. She can cruise very comfortably on just two engines, greatly extending her range. However, fully powered up she will achieve predicted speeds in excess of 50 knots.

Continuum-40m persp 13a

The hull form is seeks to achieve a balanced and efficient dynamic platform to offer a great combination of speed and handling.

Continuum-40m persp 12

 

The overall scheme shows a deep bow with fluted spray rails, giving good sea keeping and handling in various conditions, but also long and gentle waterlines to give good acceleration and overall efficiency. Then unusually, the hull has two transverse tapered steps, combined with multiple spray rails. The geometry of these being key to getting hydrodynamic performance combined with dynamic stability. This feature has also been configured to work with jet drives and actually improve the efficiency of the units.

All in all – an exciting hull form, with the potential to offer new levels of performance for the Superyacht market.

 

Continuum features a comparatively conventional layout (although this can be customized), with the main deck incorporating a very ample Master cabin in the bow, with ample vistas and a large skylight, plus all the luxuries required for the most demanding of owners (comfortable bathroom and walk in wardrobe). Aft of the Master cabin is the raised pilothouse. Beyond that is a well appointed galley. Aft of the galley is the Main salon area, which can feature a formal dining area and lounge.

On the lower deck, beneath the main salon is the guest accommodation with space for four or five cabins, depending on desires and requirements. Crew accommodation is ahead of the guest area.

A very ample sundeck above the Main deck completes the vessel. The sun deck can have a complete bimini, but the design has deliberately sought to leave the deck open to the elements. Andrew says “ It seems that so many yachts have deck upon deck, making them look a little top heavy in my mind. I sought to return to the original principle of a fast motor yacht, I wanted to make a dynamic and her lines emphasize her length and add a sense of speed and adventure to it.”

42M MY Continuum

Some has a number of interesting and innovative features including the aft mounted communication/radar masts, done so as to provide visual balance to the wedge shape. Another feature we sought to propose was the completely enclosed anchor pocket. This allows the hull to retain the clean lines, not only for aesthetic reasons but also for good hydrodynamic ones too. The construction would be in all likelihood be done out of light-weight composites, but one option discussed with Adam is to build her out of light-weight alloy.

The aim of this yacht concept was to take on a relatively conventional layout, clothe it with a contemporary and dynamic design plus design a very quick vessel.

Fury 56 Concept

The Supermarine 56′ is a concept design which uses an existing hull developed for a a 55′ racing vessel. In this case the “Fury 56” would be a slightly de-tuned version, intended as a quick but practical vessel capable of accommodating a family in comfort in the cabins belowdeck.
