The multi-award-winning NAUTILUS yacht was designed with a variety of luxurious amenities that are arranged around a layout that prioritizes both space and comfort. The goal of the design was to create a superyacht that would exude Zen and have a smaller carbon footprint.
The high-volume superyacht is exceptionally quiet both when it is moving and when it is anchored because it is powered by hybrid diesel-electric plants. Additionally, the vessel is equipped with a dynamic positioning system.
Unsurprisingly, NAUTILUS received a number of awards at the Monaco Yacht Show Awards the year she was delivered, and she continues to impress every type of charter guest she welcomes on board.

NAUTILUS yacht interior
NAUTILUS interior design is penned by Remi Tessier, a renowned French yacht interior designer.
Lighting is very important in the interior of the superyacht NAUTILUS. The recessed lighting and even illuminated furniture work together to create a quietly sophisticated yet entirely inviting atmosphere.
There are over two meters of headroom in the main salon, for example, and the layout is largely open-plan to make moving through the yacht a memorable experience in and of itself. Tessier chose a variety of textures for the window frames, including light sycamore, bleached wenge, and even some high gloss ebony.
Additionally, the social and private spaces are as comfortable as they are aesthetically impressive, thanks to careful contouring and palladium accents. The main salon has a light grey color scheme and multiple seating options surrounding a collection of coffee tables.
Instead of a plethora of decorative fixtures, Tessier has simply added a one-of-a-kind artwork by American artist Edward Ruscha, a finishing touch that completes the area in a suitably outstanding manner.
NAUTILUS Yacht exterior
The elegant hull of the superyacht NAUTILUS was designed by French naval architect Philippe Briand with both hydrodynamics and space in mind. Her plumb bow ensures efficient performance while also maximizing waterline length and providing plenty of volumes.
Tessier has extended his usual preference for uninterrupted spaces on the sundeck to create an environment that captures the Zen that the owner specifically requested. A number of custom sun pads that can rotate 360° have been paired with similarly bespoke sun loungers with built-in biminis for instant shade.
Additionally, there’s a large Jacuzzi on the main deck aft for taking in the tropical climate in style, as well as a coffee bar on the aft deck that can easily be converted to a cocktail bar when the evening calls for more drinks.
Perhaps the most eye-catching feature of the exterior is the LEDs installed above the social areas, which, when lit, discreetly communicate to the crew that guests are politely requesting some privacy.
NAUTILUS Yacht accommodation
She can comfortably accommodate 12 guests and 22 crew members for a relaxed yachting experience.
The seven cabins available to guests are spread across two decks and each has large windows to allow for plenty of natural light to complement the electric lighting. All of the cabins, like the social spaces, are furnished with bright and comfortable furnishings, allowing guests to enjoy time alone without sacrificing the beauty of their surroundings.
The main deck master suite features his and her bathrooms separated by a limestone bath, as well as additional seating on either side of the bed.
