雲端遊艇 Skyacht One

100 年前最奢華的旅行,就是乘坐遊艇橫渡大西洋,那些華麗無比的遊輪有着畫棟雕樑,而今天這極盡華美的遊艇將飛上天上,成為最新創造的 Skyacht One 奢華雲端遊艇。

A century ago, the most luxurious travel was to cross the Atlantic by opulent cruise ship. Today, Skyacht One has taken luxury travel to even higher heights.

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]走[/dropcap]進這架由 Sotto Studios 最新創作的作品,心中不期然以為倘佯在一艘無與倫比的高端設計遊艇,然而這遊艇卻可一飛沖天,這不只是一艘遊艇,這是一艘飛行遊艇。

一種無法用言語形容的奢華,這艘空中遊艇可能是世界上最奢華的私人飛機。基於 Embraer Lineage 1000E 型機種打造的,有着近千立方米的機艙空間,與及 12,497 公里的續航力。設計靈感來自一艘 1939 年的雷鳥(Thunderbird)遊艇,當年由美國加州首富 George Wittell Jr. 找來造船大師 John Hacker 打造。如今即使機身外觀也用上遊艇的概念,整架飛機內籠用上木質油漆的桃花心木繪花。

整架 Skyacht One 私人機充滿復古主義與現代科技的結合。飛機內部也用上遊艇船艙的名字,像船長室 Captain’s Quarters、主船艙 Main Cabin、船艙遊廊 Gallery 等等。飛機客艙設計風格統一,座位和照明控制,並非採用觸摸感應開關,特地復古地使用控制桿、旋鈕及按鈕,再以黃銅作為材料,令到整體的設計如同古董珠寶。

入口以 Art Nouveau 新藝術流線型設計,極為精緻、個性化的內飾及外觀。走進機身內部先會踏上意大利 Fornasetti 特別設計的 Fiore Mariano 地氈;再走過門廳,那裏擺放着靈感源自於阿拉伯六分儀的 Planetary Clock 時鐘;餐桌旁是舒適的座椅,搭配鑲嵌銅邊的桃心木舷窗、皮質紋理的桌面,加上鉑金的控制板,營造出英國紳士俱樂部的氛圍。

主人臥房以文藝復興風格的細工,加上 Riedel 水晶用具,而活動門上則有黃銅渾天儀裝飾,都是給予人神秘而浪漫的古裝夢想感覺。連地氈都細心考慮,以 Cellarius 真絲織造,靈感來源於 14 世紀的星座圖。浴室設計別出心裁,用遊艇變速桿造型來做水龍頭、木紋嵌金的手盆、鑲銅的梳妝鏡,加上柚木的拼接板牆身。整體的設計都是有濃厚藝術感,即使小小的壓花、木紋與皮革,都統一地互相輝映,令飛機的艙壁和內觀完全有着遊艇般的優雅感。這架 Skyacht One 私人機,價值高達 8,300 萬美元,即約 6 億 4,740 萬港元。

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]S[/dropcap]tepping into Sotto Studios’latest creation is like stepping aboard an unrivalled super-yacht. Using the Embraer Lineage 1000E, Skyacht One has nearly a thousand cubic meters of cabin space, and a range of 12,497km. Inspired by California tycoon George Wittell Jr.’s 1939 Thunderbird motor yacht, which was built by John Hacker, the design elements are all there down to the mahogany interiors.

Skyacht One combines state-of-the-art technology with opulent interiors. The cabins have names that are more commonly seen on ships: Captain’s Quarters, Main Cabin, Galley etc. Seats and light controls are classically designed to feel luxurious to the touch with platinum controls, finely crafted knobs and levers. The entry is Art Nouveau in style. The cabin feels like an English gentleman’s club, with Fornasetti designed Fiore Mariano carpeting. Other outstanding details include a Planetary Clock, lavish leather seats, porthole windows lined with brass, nickel and mahogany, Shagreen “Stingray” skin lined tabletops. The Master Suite, inspired by 14th century star maps, has Riedel crystal ware and silk Cellarius carpeting. The Master Bath features a “throttle” inspired faucet, walnut and gold sink, and edge lit bronze mirror. This aeronautical design masterpiece is worth up to US$83 million (around HK$647.4 million).
