Art of Kinetik Yacht

October 20th, 2010










Art of Kinetik has created perhaps the best looking yacht I’ve ever seen. The combination of wood and steel forged into the beautiful design, is really something else. It feels as if one designer poured their soul completely into this design. The aesthetics are refined to the teeth. No screws are visible and nor are any other elements like plastics.

The 63 foot beauty has a solid mahogany hull and Rolls Royce jets that give the yacht a top speed of 40 knots (46mph). For such a large yacht I would assume that that speed is pretty fast. The top looks somewhat aerodynamic by the organic contours which, in combination with the wood, give the yacht this mid-century meets modern vibe.

A lot of yachts I’ve seen in the past are white from the outside and other than being overly large, they don’t appear to look really snazzy. Quite possibly I’m missing a whole niche of yacht’s because I’m speaking for the ones in the waters around Seattle. I admire Art of Kinetik and their yacht mostly because of it’s contemporary, stylish ability to embody my vision of a dream yacht should be.

Who wants a ride?

    Might as well have it morph into a jet and name it Bumblebee.

    Looks like there’s finally some decent competition for the Wally Power series of boats.

    Flat screen in the kitchen? Not bad.

    Bad Ass! That’s all I have to say, I can’t stop drooling over at how beautiful everything is from the kitchen to the living room. A man’s best friend.

    Beautiful. Some of the geometric design elements remind me of the Cadillac Cien. Very nice.

    The photography of this amazing vessel is quite astounding as well. They have gone through each setting with a fine tooth comb to stylize and light all the features. Awesome photography, amazing boat, what more could you ask for? oh yeah, the money to own such a thing.

    fucking gorgeous find.

    Extremely good taste!
    It’s like it comes from another world comparing with the others. Every little detailed matches…an unique concept.

  11. Shelby, quite possibly a dumb question, but did you shoot the images?

    Beautiful design, and 40 knots is indeed fast, but 63 feet isn’t that big a boat in the grand scheme of things. In comparison the Wallypower is 118 feet and goes 75 mph (but it also consumes a liter of fuel per second at that speed!). The hull on this boat is completely made out of mahogany which isn’t particularly eco friendly but then I guess yachts aren’t all that eco friendly by their very nature. Still wouldn’t mind having one though!

    @Ian, the TV is in the kitchen because the kitchen is in the living room.
