Thanks to the CGI visualization company hired by Blohm+Voss, here are the first illustrations of the Blohm+Voss BV80.
As you may remember, in late August, Blohm+Voss began teasing yacht buyers and yachting media alike with glimpses of the BV80. She’s notable for being the German builder’s first-ever semi-custom megayacht. The glimpses came in the form of a YouTube video, and they were truly just glimpses.
The renderings above, which the CGI company, DW Studio, shared via Twitter, reveal a few features. The Blohm+Voss BV80, measuring 262 feet (80 meters), has dramatic bow flare that ends in a gentle curve. That curve is complemented by the rounded fore sections of the successive rising decks. These styling elements come from the drawing board of Eidsgaard Design.
Given the LOA, the helipad on the foredeck comes as no surprise. Neither does the inclusion of what appears to be a large hatch along the starboard side. It’s tough to discern here, but close inspection of the rendering reveals it. In all likelihood, it means the BV80 has a tender garage or beach club there.
Other discernible creature comforts include two pools. One is forward on the BV80′s uppermost deck, paired with an observation seating area just aft. It should prove to be quite the aerie for the owners and guests. The second pool is accompanied by loose lounges on the main aft deck. It’s well positioned by stairs down to the ample swim platform.
Full details about the Blohm+Voss BV80 will be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show. For now, the builder says the hull, superstructure, and machinery spaces are already engineered, to save delivery time. Buyers have plenty of opportunity to personalize interior and exterior areas, of course.
