Intermarine 55 Yacht designed by BMW Designworks USA - Web Exclusive

BMW Group DesignworksUSA collaborated with Brazil’s leading luxury yachts shipyard Intermarine to create the elegant Intermarine 55.

Feb 7, 2011

Setting sail in July 2011, the Intermarine 55 is the first in a new era of Intermarine yachts. DesignworksUSA has also created designs for Germany’s Bavaria Yachts and worked with HF Interiors to create bespoke, one-of-a-kind environments for ultra exclusive mega-yachts.

The Intermarine 55 is 57 long and an extremely luxurious boat, not only because of its exclusivity, but also because of the balance of spaces. It was an excellent internal arrangement including a salon, galley, three cabins and two bathrooms. It comfortably seats six people and one crew.

The team at DesignworksUSA created an innovative design for the exterior of the boat, translated in powerful, elegant lines. The large windows have a dynamic shape offering an open view to the sea. Another remarkable innovation is the shape of the hull side windows. There is no circular or oval porthole as traditionally used in boats. The portholes of the Intermarine 55 are integrated into the large trapezoid shaped windows, which enable more light and visibility in the interiorsl. The feature lines in the hull that define the unique personality of the boat are forms known in the automotive industry that now reach the nautical world. Similarly inspired by automotive are details like the air intakes in stainless steel. The bow is characterized by a well-defined angle, brings a strong presence to the boat.

Inspired by modern architecture, the internal spaces are full of natural light and reflections, creating a warm and comfortable environment. The big windows in the salon, cabins and even in the bathrooms allow an open view to the sea. The salon door offers perfect integration with the stern area thanks to its wide opening via three door panels. Since Brazil’s climate allows for plenty of time on deck, the design included open transitions for increased functionality.
