Winner of 2012 Millennium Yacht Design Award-Young Designers Category / ”Dream Boat
Allochroous… An adjective in English which means ”changing color”.It’s a Greek expression changed in color from other color as an etymology of the word.
We thought that it’s the best name for our project. Cause one of the important part of this project is having a changable body with it’s color and technological additions.As you all can see easily the morning mode and the night mode of this yacht are totally different from each other. Language of style is always the same but we can say that this yacht is especially for the special ”nights”… Cause Allochroous is designed for special concerts.But not only for concerts but also for vip film premiers,exhibitions,happenings and chic events or boutique theatre presentations.
At this point we should mention that ”what’s the point in looking like different during the day?” Here we explain our project’s ”purpose”. Even if it’s a yacht project, to be honest we are just trying to make our dream real.Our ”dream boat” becomes different with it’s changable body. We used the play of light to create involvement with the guests.
But as we all know,when dreams become true generally there we have to talk about money.So we can say that this project will be for someone who are the members of such a ”society”. They can be a member of such a art communities or just the people from elite society. This choosen elit group will attend theese events which will be on this yacht.All expenses can be paid by sponsors or financers of the events or depending on the situation,guests can come to listen live music just organized for a few people which were organized by ticket. Cause capacity of the concert area is just for 36 guests and additionally lounge bar which is on the front part of the yacht.So the age range were considered as 35-60.
It can be seen clearly Allochroous’s pure shape.It has recognizable,different shape and it’s such a good feature for not being equal to some other yachts. It’s designed by elegant,smooth lines.
If we have to talk about technical details a bit, Allochroous has three parts under the hull two of them are floating and one which is on the back by itself with motor.The yacht’s speed is too low.For this feature, Allochrous inspired by ”Sea Shadow”.When the boat is on the movement the two twin arms under the body are open and provide floatation of the boat.If the boat has to stop which it happens when someone has to get into the yacht before movement; the arms move toward each other and become almost in closed position.At this point they make weight and it cannot be durable.So the yacht goes down slowly.When it goes down access to the yacht becomes easy with automatic folding stairs.
Allochroous equipped with valuable materials.Also has a solid,aluminium body.For guests’ convenience and hygiene all the materials considered in detail. Using ”Corian” for flooring is a good example for this.
This boat has been designed and presented to your liking.Who say ”no” for beautiful summer concerts on the sea?
