The key feature of Project Kai is the underwater observatory, or, as it is also called, a Nemo lounge 

Turkish designers suggested at least two ways to organize and use this space. One can combine admiring the underwater world with keeping fit and arrange a gym here, or leave this unique space the function of a lounge, but add a cinema, which can also be used as a game room. Taking into account the growing popularity of onboard gyms and fitness areas, most potential customers will probably opt for the first layout option. Moreover, there is another cinema on the upper deck forward, but this time it’s outdoors.

Project Kai provides an opportunity to admire the sea not only under the water, but also from the upper deck dedicated to the owner completely and offering 150 sq.m of open area, with golf amenities, the open cinema mentioned above and a bar. Or from a generous master suite with an office, a private lounge and panoramic glazing. There are also four VIP cabins to provide guest accommodation on the main deck. 

The creators of the concept also dedicated 125 sq.m to the ‘must-have’ element of all modern superyachts, i.e. a beach club, equipped with a sea water pool and a bathing platform, which also serves as a storage space for a 13-metre tender. The yacht will supposedly be powered by a hybrid propulsion system, which will deliver a cruising speed of 14 knots and 5.5 knots in a silent eco-mode.

It looks like mere observation of the sea from the decks or even from the Nemo lounge didn’t seem enough to BAZ Yacht designers, so they also thought of an opportunity to have a submarine at hand – for more active exploration and contemplation of the underwater world.
