Project Name: Battlewagon 70ft

Date Completed: April 2017

Interior Designer: Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design

Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design believe this project is the next evolution in luxury sport fisher design. The design is a bold attempt to modernize without losing the unmistakable silhouette. The goal of this concept is to create a refreshing approach on the already successful sport fisher platform but with an injection of luxury and an aggressive exterior.

The typical sport fisher platform is a powerful and capable platform. Misha wanted to modernise and explore adventurous expanses of glass whilst retaining an aggressive exterior. From an arrangement standpoint, she wanted to offer exterior fixed furniture to provide a more enriching cruising experience, particularly in fair weather, for example, a forward seating position could be utilized. Naturally with such a flexible platform many combinations could be entertained, such as opting for tenders, jet skis, or a surfboard rack.

Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design wanted to demonstrate a luxury cruise capability and still go blue water fishing. Within a 70ft envelope this is achievable. A bit of volume in the right areas makes for a more dramatic exterior and interior design. From a technical standpoint, the hull has adapted to be more efficient. The choice of shaft driven or pods can also be chosen. This is an exciting design that not only remains true to its original platform, but seeks to build on its existing strengths.
