The 253-foot yacht design by Ken Freivokh for the Turkish shipyard is a radical interpretation of an open-transom superyacht.

You might know Ken Freivokh from such projects as the Maltese Falcon, Dream Symphony, and the Black Pearl. His latest concept, Quantum, is a leap forward for Turquoise Yachts, which has worked with the UK-based designer on previous projects. The 253-foot Quantum is a much more ambitious undertaking, with multiple swimming pools, a four-floor atrium, a private owner's deck, and a full helipad on the bow.

The real distinguishing feature, however, is the transom that opens on three sides, creating an open platform to the sea. The tender garage is designed to flood, so the tender can be driven in and out. When it's vacated, the space converts to a saltwater pool. The rest of the terrace and gymnasium remain open on all sides. The transparent bottom of the swimming pool on the deck above also allows natural light to filter into the lower deck.
