The exterior styling of the visionary new superyacht concept, RIMOR-X (‘rimor’ is Latin for “explorer”), has been masterminded by designer Ben Julian Toth, with the Pelorus Yacht Expeditions division on board as technical advisors. It’s a design reflective of a burgeoning trend in the yacht travel sphere to reach ever more remote destinations while traveling in state-of-the-art luxury and with fit-for-purpose design features, equipment, and performance.
“RIMOR-X visually unites the beauty and might of its natural environment with an unmistakable call towards fierce environments, new adventures, and bold expeditions for lasting memories…” Toth says, “and Pelorus has the knowledge and know-how in leading the adventurous experiences the clients are after.”
In a recent interview with Superyacht News, Toby Sturge commented that “While this project is currently a concept, there has been great thought and consideration put into the design. Many expedition projects to date have been relatively similar, not necessarily from an exterior design perspective, but more in terms of their lifestyle and usage. This is where Pelorus’ experience is invaluable because the team has seen, first hand, not only what is required in terms of technical spaces, but also how these types of clients like to spend their time when not hiking, skiing, trekking, and so on. The aim was to create intimate areas where owners, families, and guests were able to unwind and reflect on their experiences, but also to keep experiencing them.”
