“ The first boat of the Sarp Yachts XSR series ”

While designing it, I was inspired by modern architectural structures, rather than traditional yacht architecture, to reflect its spirit better. I tried to create living spaces that would combine the closed areas with the sunshine and the view of the sea, and ensure that the inner and outer volumes are connected naturally. Mainly, I wanted to reveal the comfort and luxury of it without disturbing  its spirit of naturalness. Besides all these, I aimed to differentiate it with an innovative and original design line without compromising its modern and sports appearance. 

By using parallel hybrid propulsion systems, you can make slow cruises by utilising electric propulsion with nearly zero cost! Electric engines operate silently with no exhaust gas. Sarp Yachts ’brand new XSR Series offers you peace and quiet to listen to the voice of the sea and smell freedom.

Van Oossanen developed the patented 'Fast Displacement Hull Form' or FDHF. The development of this concept was triggered by the desire to develop a hull form that is efficient over the entire speed range and not only in a restricted speed interval around the maximum speed. Other benefits include significantly increased comfort on-board with better sea keeping and wave reduction. Particularly when compared to hard chine vessels, the FDHF showed improved sea keeping behavior and manoeuvrability. XSR 85, designed together with the Red team, while I was working @redyachtdesign as the chief exterior designer.
