While there seems to be a fine line between characteristics that define yachts and superyachts, mega yachts explore the pinnacle of luxury while cruising the open ocean. Typically measuring over 260 feet in length, mega yachts require larger crews to maintain the vessel while offering a spectacular level of service. Yacht and superyacht designer Enzo Manca is pushing the boundaries of marine luxury with the all-new UAE ONE Concept mega yacht, a passion-driven project inspired by the largest U.S. aircraft carriers. Taking over two years to design, renderings of the 459-foot UAE ONE showcase a total of 9 decks that include two heliports for helicopters over 55 feet and a sheltering hangar for a presidential helicopter.
The 30,000+ sqft teakwood main deck proves to be the space to be as it houses a 60-foot transversal swimming pool, gym, wellness center, and onboard spa. At the bow of the UAE ONE, an enormous circular sofa is positioned with a fireplace at the center and a complete 360-degree view of the open sea for all guests to enjoy. Although renderings of its spacious interior are still in the works, the mega yacht will be equipped with 35 cabins for around 65 crew members, 14 mini apartments, five super suites, eight master cabins, three meeting rooms, and an additional press area. Symbolizing the epitome of ultra-luxury, the UAE ONE mega yacht from Enzo Manca will be in production later this year.
