This Open-Concept Trimaran Superyacht Is Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen

The Parisian design firm VPLP’s newest boat – the Komorebi concept trimaran superyacht – is one of the most light-enhanced superyachts on the water. It’s particularly fitting for the 282-foot luxury boat, as komorebi is Japanese for “curtain of light”.

It’s an open floor plan, with an enormous saloon that oversees a small garden with a living tree, a swimming pool, and the ocean.
