Designer Statement: A snowflake symbolizes perfection, uniqueness and simplicity despite its complex structure; just like nature. The ‘’Snowflake’’ concept was created to emphasize respect for nature.
The concept was born from a hexagonal snowflake shape. Dynamic soul and uniqueness are given by main characteristic lines of the shape. The sleek design of a sailing yacht, spacious interior of a motor yacht and future technologies are the Snowflake’s perfection sources. She is unique and lightweight as her name. This is thanks to smooth curves, sharp corners, and carbon fiber superstructure. As a futuristic property, omniphobic coated stell-aluminum hull produces 50 percent less friction. When 1850 m2 Dyna-rig sails, diesel-electric propulsion system, solar panels on the roof, transparent solar sails and glasses came together to produce a high amount of green propulsive force. Controllable pitch propellers regenerate energy when the sails are full of wind. With all these technologies Snowflake is a remarkable design for nature.
