Eden is a luxury motoryacht concept by Daniel Hahn, a German
design professional who studied product design.
The Eden is a 21 metre (72 foot) fast Motoryacht powered by
a pair of 1,250 horsepower inboard engines. The design of the
Eden is an interpretation of classic motoryachts. The aim of
the project was to create a luxurious, desirable design which
relied on its aesthetics more than technical innovation. The
"Eden" name is intended to evoke "desirability,
freedom and personal space".
The result is a sleek, generously proportioned, luxury watercraft
with unique styling elements. The overall shape of the hull
is characterised by the extreme change in cross sections from
front to rear. The vertical bow of the Eden is in stark contrast
to the wide horizontal stern.
The hull and body of the Eden is formed from two primary materials.
The lower hull section is formed from lightweight carbon fibre,
while the main body of the craft is sculpted from wood. These
two sections are designed to fit into each other and provide
an interesting material contrast.
The dramatic single piece windshield of the Eden flows smoothy
into the rest of the bodywork helping to keep the overall shape
as slippery as possible. Even the anchor is integrated into
the body, only visible by a joint line in the front section.
The interior of the Eden motoryacht has room for 3 guests and
a single crew member. The proposed range at maximum speed (40
knots) is 360 miles.
