Project Thunderball contains similar lines as sailing vessels and will have a sailboat as a tender in a nod to the owner’s affinity for sailing. Vripack architecture studio developed the project’s yacht exterior lines and naval architecture in collaboration with the Superyacht Engineering Department of Ferretti Group.
