Kiwa is Isaac Burrough’s Sustainable Superyacht

Daily web magazine Designboom features New Zealand-born Amsterdam-based designer, Isaac Burrough’s “forward-thinking superyacht concept … developed to maximise both current and future sustainable technologies.”

“Named after the Māori guardian of the ocean, Kiwa measures 110m in length and combines energy-saving features with a sleek, elegant design. A narrow, low-volume to length hull ensures motor-efficiency from the ground up and 200m2 of solar panels power the daily crew usage and hotel load,” Designboom reports.

“Outdoor living is encouraged with expansive deck areas and 175m2 of storage space for guest tenders and toys.”

Speaking about the design, Burrough said: “The intention for Kiwa was to design a yacht that is both modern and elegant. Her sleek silhouette combined with curvaceous surfaces give grace despite her exploration capabilities. a yacht that will look sophisticated whether cruising the Mediterranean or the Arctic.”
