Complete with its own passenger carrying drone, it is easy to see why Time is redefining superyacht design. See pictures ahead of the launch at the Monaco Yacht Show!
Designed by Henry Ward Design, in collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee, the 66-metre Time is the ultimate explorer yacht.
The futuristic looking superyacht is pushing the boundaries of design, as technology improves and owner’s expectations expand, with more of a demand for unique experiences rather than goods and services.
Time carries an 18-metre floating lodge, docked within the aft end of the vessel and designed to blend in as a fixed part of the superstructure.
On approach to shallow waters, the lodge can be launched as an independent base for mini expeditions in harder to reach places.
On-board is an owner’s cabin, a second guest cabin and open-plan galley/living/dining area.
When moored in a secluded location, the aft section of the lodge folds down for direct water access and indoor/outdoor living.
The lodge aims to be the perfect tool to allow owners and guests to explore that extra mile.

If that wasn’t enough, Time has an autonomous drone housed in a hanger in the bow.
It is capable of transporting four guests and is automatically programmed to return to the mothership.
Alternatively, guests can select a destination on a touch screen display and the drone will take care of all the piloting and navigation autonomously.
Similar to the towering superyacht, Shadai which was launched by Gabriele Teruzzi earlier this year, Time has a skydeck.
Standing 15 metres above sea level, this special viewing platform is accessed from the sundeck.
Time also has a wellness level, complete with a gym, massage room and sauna.
The bar area on the sundeck leads out to a terrace with hot tub and views forward over the bow.
If the thrill of the view isn’t enough, the yacht comes with an inverted climbing wall on its aft face.
Not for the faint hearted, when you just can’t hold on any longer you’ll splash back down into the eight metre swimming pool below!
When not in use, the pool can be covered to create a larger entertainment space for parties and alfresco dinning.
When the 18-metre floating lodge is not docked, a large protected splash pool is revealed, with the aft topsides of the yacht folding down to maximise available space and creating 190 square metres of deck around the pool.
At the forward end is a bar for refreshments, leading through to the toy store and tender garage which, amongst other goodies, features two 8.5-metre tenders.
Time accommodates a full beam owner’s suite and three VIP cabins on the main deck.
The starboard side passerelle, which leads directly into the main living area with its floor to ceiling windows and views aft through the glass walled swimming pool, is an impressive way to board the yacht.
The bow garage solution presents a unique new concept for the storage and deployment of the yacht’s tenders and equipment, whether it be a high payload drone, for transportation, route finding and wildlife observation, or for a more conventional tender.
BMT Nigel Gee has carried out an initial feasibility study for the naval architecture of this 66 metre yacht.
Time is powered by a twin azimuthing drive system with a total power of 3000kW, achieving a cruising speed of 15 knots.
The yacht is capable of a range in excess of 5,000 nautical miles at a passage speed of 12 knots.
Time will be officially unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show, which runs from 28 September to 1 October 2016.
