About ten years ago, I was working for Dutch Naval Architecture firm Azure Naval Architects in Haarlem. I was designing some very large motor yachts. One of which was this beast, Motor Yacht Luminosity. A complicated project from the technical requirements, she began at 88 metres. I did a number of proposals and it was one of my designs that got the commission, although I then left the company and the final design changed in some details (my former colleagues did a number of improvements, I think), and more obviously overall length, growing to 107 metres, which has made her more graceful, I suspect Benetti made these modifications. One of the tricky requirements she had was to have a main deck clear floor to ceiling height of 3 metres. She was also innovative in the extensive use of glazing more akin to that of buildings. She is however, the largest yacht that I have had a hand in designing, although it was, as ever, a team effort. At the bottom is a link to the broker that is currently selling her, it shows a nice video. I was not involved in the Interior, although I did have numerous conversations with Zaniz at those early stages.
