With an impressive compound annual growth rate of 7.8%, the modern superyacht industry is expected to hit a value of $10.2B by 2025. This marked influx of cash has also given way to a slew of increasingly bonkers, outside-the-box superyacht designs, such as the 433’ vessel from North Carolina-based design firm, Designova Creative.
Christened the “Crescere,” — Latin for “To Grow” — the boat’s name is owed to its bevy of plant-adorned living walls that are fed via a proprietary watering system. When not acting as a helipad, the ship’s timber-clad foredeck also conceals glass panels that rise up from the ground to comprise the four sides of a 52’ L x 10’ W lap pool which is then filled with pumped-in saltwater. At the aft end of the ship is a bow modeled after traditional J-class sailboats. Powering the Crescere Superyacht is a hybrid diesel-electric engine that’s helped along by onboard solar panels and biofuel generators and allows for cruising speeds of 35-knots (40mph). Under deck, the ship sports a massive multi-level interior, clad with glass walls and thoroughly modern furniture matching the exterior aesthetic of the yacht.
