"ARTEFACT – a perfect marriage of art and science"
An artefact is a man-made object or effect of enduring significance in a natural system. In designing and building ARTEFACT, the goal was to prove that beautiful man-made objects can complement and celebrate the natural environment with minimal impact – and set new standards for engineering-driven stewardship while enhancing passenger comfort and experience.
one of the world’s first superyachts to meet IMO Tier III emissions regulations
solar panels and a large battery storage system that allows the vessel to operate for a limited time with no use of internal combustion engines
innovative DC-bus diesel-electric Azipod propulsion system developed by ABB combined with dynamic positioning that can hold position without dropping anchor to protect sensitive sea floor – custom six-bladed propellers minimize noise and vibration while maximizing performance and efficiency
wastewater recycling system for re-use as technical water
unprecedented floor-to-ceiling glass central section complimenting 740 square meters of curved and expressive glasswork weighing almost 60 tons
at 2.999 GT, Artefact is now the biggest-volume 80-meter superyacht in the world
ARTEFACT is not only a new build...
...but a platform for innovation. An engineer and accomplished entrepreneur, the owner wanted to minimize emissions and the impact to the environment while furthering the state of the art through the use of cutting-edge technologies that can be deployed across all classes of vessels to promote cleaner seas and dramatically improved fuel efficiency. Intended to spearhead the future direction of yachting, ARTEFACT showcases innovative power generation technologies, digital power management, azimuthing pods with dynamic positioning and full digital automation in an aesthetically striking design that frames its environment.
