The world of yacht design has seen some incredible innovations in the last decade, and one of the designers leading the way is Turkish visionary Timur Bozca. He obtained his bachelor degree in Automotive & Transport Design from the UK's Coventry University, and then went on to boost his modeling skills at Majenta Academy. After earning a master's degree in Yacht Design from Italy's Politecnico di Milano, Timur Bozca struck out on his own to introduce some of the world's most unique luxury yacht concepts. When you see a Timur Bozca design, two things are certain -- it will have exquisite style and incorporate cutting edge technology.
Here are Timur Bozca's most incredible yacht designs.
Isurus Power Yacht
When Timur Bozca came up with the concept for the Isurus power yacht, he aimed to combine high performance, minimalist luxury, and a beautiful finish. The result is a luxury sport yacht that's the complete opposite of mediocre. The Isurus teeters on the edge of being outrageous, and the 24 meter vessel's speed, muscular profile, and engineering have been compared to the power and presence of the majestic mako shark.
Each and every detail of this yacht was designed to promote comfort and leisure, and the inside contains a wealth of incredible amenities. In addition to a modern kitchen and bar, the Isurus has a guest cabin, master cabin, large bathroom, workout area, office, living room, and library. Each space on this concept yacht features technologically advanced entertainment systems.
Bozca Xema Sailboat
Timur Bozca's Xema has been officially termed a sailboat, but it's truly a sleek and speedy yacht. The 15 meter yacht combines the best of technology and sophisticated design to create an elite luxury vessel with incredible speed. While it's equipped with world class features, Timur Bozca managed to maintain a minimalist aesthetic that's clean and uncluttered. Quality is the rule here, and it shows in every corner of this yacht.
The Xema has a flush deck, sunken cockpit, and an open air sunbathing area. There are also three living spaces on board, including a deckhouse that can convert into a large social area that's akin to a second cockpit. A guest cabin and owner's cabin are onboard to accommodate several guests.
Behind its modern exterior is eco-friendly technology, including a hybrid drive and a system that can store solar energy. The Xema is designed to be made of carbon fiber and organic materials to make it as light as possible.
Cauta Super Sailing Yacht
Timur Bozca's Cauta super sailing yacht truly reflects the designer's motto of refusing to limit his creativity. Its award winning design is all at once innovative, futuristic, and dynamic, and it's unlike any cruiser on the market. One of the most striking things about the Cauta is its silver color that glistens and highlights all of the vessel's lines. The Cauta goes beyond super yachts and enters its own class, the super cruiser. Timur Bozca developed a novel sailing system for the yacht, termed the Dynarig, that allows it to speed across the ocean despite its size. A carbon fiber hull enables the 55 meter Cauta to exert the power and speed of smaller vessels. It also has a pair of rotating, self standing masts that contain a total of ten sails that can be easily controlled.
The interior of the Cauta is uniquely designed to provide superior protection for passengers. The aesthetic inside this super sailing yacht continues the modern theme of its exterior and holds luxurious lounge areas, sun beds, a dining area, and a spacious cockpit that can transform into a swimming pool. While most yachts aim to provide views of the water from above, the Cauta gives its guests an underwater look of the ocean that's incomparable.
The Black Swan
So many yachts look similar and hide their luxuries inside, but Timur Bozca's Black Swan super yacht is an ostentatious and bold design. The 229 foot vessel sports a rich black exterior and powerful lines -- it even looks a bit devious, in the best possible way. The hull has a distinctive point, and a helicopter landing pad is placed prominently on its top deck.
Just under the helicopter platform is a hidden lift that guests can use to access their ride -- this is a yacht that's built for the ultra wealthy world traveler. In addition to a mix of hidden storage areas, a beach club, pool with a waterfall, and plush seating areas, the Black Swan has two spacious private balconies. Glass railings prevent breaking ocean views from inside the boat, while a huge angled glass wall allows passengers to get a good look of all that's going on from each deck.
The design for Timur Bozca's Black Swan yacht incorporates enforced steel and aluminum, which allows this massive beauty to reach a top cruising speed of 28 knots. Six guest suites and an owner's suite accommodate 12 guests. This is one of Timur Bozca's most ambitious concepts, and if produced it would surely cost tens of millions of dollars to own.
