This exquisite superyacht, along with the other projects revealed in the last few days, is a testament to Leoni's visionary thinking and creativity. The aStøne, in particular, stands out through its modern looks and striking architectural details.
The highlight of the design is the so-called "Sculpture Garden Cockpit," an innovative space at the stern that, according to the designer, can seamlessly morph from a garden patio into a display area for sculptures, akin to a museum.
The space is also equipped with a huge round pool surrounded by sunpads and seasonal plants.
Moreover, the conceptual boat is envisioned with expansive outdoor lounges on the superior desks, adorned with plush sofas and sun pads, creating the perfect environment for basking in the sun and relishing the sea breeze.
The designers also created a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the vessel. For instance, an uninterrupted flow can be observed from the main saloon toward the swim platform and the steps leading into the water. And since there are few barriers between the yacht's different environments, the natural surroundings become an integral part of the experience, and guests can enjoy boundless views of the surrounding ocean.
With an impressive gross tonnage of 499 GT, the aStøne is designed for long-distance voyages, and its meticulously sculpted 3D shape is meant to ensure both stability and security while at sea.
"The aStøne motor yacht is a triumph of design synergy, melding flawless modern aesthetics with the audacity of a courageous concept. She stands as a testament to the perfect equilibrium between form and function, promising an unparalleled journey across the open seas," claims the design studio.
As for the interior design, the renderings released by the studio don't reveal much, but LDWO says aStøne's living quarters have been designed with opulent materials and furnishings throughout. In a bid to create an inviting atmosphere that encourages relaxation and indulgence, Leoni used a combination of light-toned woods, textured stones, and rugged metals for the interiors.
LDWO's "Beyond Horizons: A Voyage through Yacht Design" exhibition also included a sleek limousine tender called Smooth, a chase boat named Edge, an innovative houseboat with a displacement catamaran hull, as well as two other superyacht concepts.
