Milan-based design studio Officina Armare has revealed its latest superyacht concept the offers the perfect blend of speed and elegance. After fascinating us with concepts such as the Project Centauro and the A88 Gransport, the studio’s newest creation named ‘BadGal’ is here to redefine the concept of sleek and sporty yachts. The 43-meter yacht features Officina Armare’s recognizable design language, characterized by powerful arched sides and sporty lines that evoke the sense of speed. The vessel’s purposeful stance is further defined by two large windows with a high sheer line that runs the entire length of the vessel from bow to stern. In fact, the streamlined exterior is emphasized by swathes of darkened glass, including a unique dome-shaped upper deck that enhances the yacht’s sporty look by keeping an ordinary bow shape.
While the exterior of the BadGal is said to be its most fascinating feature, the interior is unique in its own right and gets a completely contrasting look and feel to it compared to the outside. It forgoes sportiness for utmost luxury and comfort by featuring the finest woods, stones, and metals. The living spaces are laid out over three decks with a layout that “guarantees total privacy and relaxation at sea.” The massive master cabin is located at the main deck’s bow, while the remaining four luxury staterooms with their own private bathrooms are located on the lower deck. The yacht has room for six crew members with a provision of three cabins, also on the lower deck. The dining and open bar are located on the main deck. At the same time, an additional living area and music studio can be found on the upper deck under the giant canopy of glass, offering observatory-like unobstructed views of the outside.
The BadGal is powered by twin MTU 12V 4000CM93L engines, which along with its planning hull design, gives it an impressive top speed of 29+ knots. The unique design of the BadGal also prioritizes maximizing space with innovative design choices. The vessel features a v-drive transmission configuration to reduce the engine room area’s size and offer more room in the lower deck. The bow mooring equipment is also cleverly hidden under the upper deck flooring to maintain a smooth overall design. The Officina Armare BadGal is listed on Worth Avenue Yachts’ website and is scheduled to be completed by 2023. The price is only available upon request.
