Master’s Degree Thesis Project
The double-mast sailing ship brigantine type. The hull is 38,25m long and 7,6m wide.
The biomimicry played its role in the project. The shape of superstructure was inspired by the dragonfly. The insect with beautiful colors, delicate wings and a slender body.
The dragonfly connects two elements of nature, it starts its life in the water and fly in the air.
The study diploma project is a sailboat allowing extended contact with water. The vessel allows to stay on board both professional divers and amateurs engaged in, among others, filmmaking and underwater photography, exploring shipwrecks, exploration of the seabed and so on.
The ship includes a hotel infrastructure. This gives one the possibility to organize multi-day trips, also with the participation of family and friends not necessarily interested in underwater expeditions.
The winged form of the superstructure is inspired by the shape of the dragonfly body, which in addition to its slenderness is characterized by beautiful coloration.
The superstructure is constructed of bent pipes with square cross-section and is based on delicate supports that offer the impression of a suspension. Roofing consists of two two-element translucent surfaces.
The idea connected with the outside is reflected also in the interior. Long windows wrapped around the hull alternately immersed in the depths and are washed by the wind. The design of the windows based on the rebate division penetrates into the interior, like the ribs of some big fish.
The tropical exterior decorated in the colors of turquoise, black and warm wood deck refers to the atmosphere of the Pacific Islands. Whereas the cool, white interior offers a refuge from the scorching sun.
The elongated silhouette resembling from the top view a spindle or Vikings’ fast boats of fairly significant size is slender and dynamic.
The black hull with a mirrored surface reflects the surroundings. Water, through generated reflections, seems to unite with the ship not only physically but also optically.
Design and management of projects at international level with a strategic approach for design studios, shipyards and investors to open up new possibilities by design, so they can build and grow their business.
