Designed by Adrian Konynendyk of Lutra Yacht Design, Singularity was designed to meet the requirement of a modern lightweight boat, equipped with the functionality of a racing yacht and the comfort of a cruiser.
UK-based yacht design firm Design Unlimited designed the interior to achieve the contrasting demands of looks, comfort and lightweight.
While maintaining the required weight, the finished yacht features a level of comfort including air conditioning, extensive cold storage and luxury soft furnishings.
The DuFLEX® panels were a combination of aramid honeycomb cores with lightweight carbon-fibre skins. A variety of thicknesses were required for different areas in the boat, and tight manufacturing tolerances had to be achieved to meet weight, stiffness, and stability requirements.
The surfaces of the panels were then laminated with a teak veneer by Marxcraft's highly-skilled team of craftsmen. Painstaking attention to detail in choosing wood grain and colour, ensured that each piece was perfectly matched, and beautifully finished edge-trims were inserted on exposed surfaces to complete the sophisticated and luxurious yacht interior.
