A new breed of superyacht – Applied intelligent technology for exclusive mobility. Shaped around the interface between man, machine and the environment, IKKO defines a new approach to exclusive yachting by introducing 125 meters of leanness and unprecedented experience onboard. Designed as an oasis to stimulate all senses, her innovative architecture fuses with the landscape: 360° breath-taking sight lines of her upper deck including a side transparent floor, a 180° panorama on the main deck and a sprawling forward outdoor entertainment space. Her patented monohull stabilised by outriggers achieves new standards of hydrodynamics providing fuel efficiency, excellent seakeeping and more speed. Spray on solar-power cells supply extra energy, amongst others, to Domotics: this cutting edge computing network manages automation and communication for equipment, distributed and remote control of domestic tasks from inside out, enabling more intimacy thanks to a reduction of the crew number. With the poise of a sword hovering above the sea level, IKKO is tailored for people who aspire to new values and who are ready to take ownership of a ground-breaking adaptive machine, fit for 21 century nomadic lifestyle.
