A Totally Different Yacht Project 

Tuhura is a yacht in a category of its own, a real standout in the market. Its exterior style evokes the earliest canoes: pirogues and other boats used hundreds of years ago by native populations around the world. The Polynesians, in particular, were great explorers, covering thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes. The idea to revisit these early forms of navigation consists in reviving the spirit of exploration and discovery. In fact, the name of this yacht, Tuhura, is derived from the Maori verb to discover, bring to light unearth, open, explore, and investigate.

The main inspiration for the interior design comes from Eastern Asia and the islands of the Pacific. All of the systems onboard are intelligent: lighting,

audio, video, temperature…

Key points: The design of Tuhura borrows the natural form of the earliest form of navigation: the canoe. The yacht is designed on a larger scale and features all of the latest technology.

Plus: The hull was created with multiple horizontal windows, using an advanced glass technology made up of a series of dots that stop prying eyes from looking in, but still allow guests on board to enjoy a seamless view out to sea, as if through a normal pane of glass. The windows appear to be the same color as the hull.

Characteristics: Length: 115m, draft (from waterline to bottom of hull): 3.9m, speed: 18 knots
