Environmental Concept Development

Concept development for how the yacht could contribute to the environment took a number of different avenues, baring in mind that each idea must satisfy the owners 'green' social conscience. The first was perhaps the yacht could act as research vessel and be hired out to a body like USARC (US arctic research commission). The yacht would need to be designed to collect data and mapping of coastal environments, terrestrial imagery and elevation data and be able to withstand harsh conditions, influencing its exterior design.
