Monaco-based naval architect studio The A Group has presented its concept for A470, a new 85m model.

The new design has been developed to maximise both the interior and exterior layout. “During discussions with our clients, it is sometimes remarked that megayacht layouts can be too complex in the way that they duplicate similar spaces, certain areas being rarely used,” the company explains in a statement.

With the A470, The A group has tried to rationalize the interior arrangement, offering, for example, only one dining area but with an original interior/exterior layout; only one salon but with huge expansive volumes and significant ceiling height.

Due to the resulting low profile, the A470 has very sleek lines and her exterior design includes the “glass shark fin”, the design signature of The A group.

The company also claims that this innovative concept is tailor-made for clients in search of sea-going comfort, with all the essential living and entertaining functionality. Project A470 is designed to LY3.
