Is She a New Version of an All Time Favourite Superyacht Design?

One of our all time favourite yachts, after Carinthia VI (now The One) of course, is the now ten year old 115 metre Pelorusbuilt by LürssenYachts in 2003.
When writing about her at the time, we described her as “uniting beauty with dynamic lines giving her an elegant and energetic appearance.”
Now it seems Pelorus might have a contender for that special place in our hearts, on paper at least!
Not only does Oceanco’s concept yacht Project Dana remind us of Pelorusbut Oceanco have even gone so far as to describe her as a “refined and aerodynamic 105m Tim Heywood project that unites beauty with dynamic lines giving her an elegant and energetic appearance.”
How nice that they should like and use our wording!
With her sand coloured hull and white superstructure, those classic bulges on the forward end of the upper deck, her long sloping transom and reverse-line at waterline in the bow she is in our minds every bit a worthy successor to her slightly bigger big sister.
She is designed to accommodate 16 guests in 2 owner’s suites, 5 double guest cabins and 2 twin cabins.
She features a transparent infinity pool the after end of which rather dramatically cantilevers over the transom for added visual effect. At the forward end of the pool is a single Jacuzzi like spa pool.  Another spa pool this time square in shape is located forward of the private suite and just abaft the fully certificated helipad on the bow.
Inside the yacht is said to have space for a vast spa, gym, two massage rooms, a hair & beauty salon and a sea lounge.
Tenders are stored in a garage aft under the main pool. Access is via side opening doors. The yacht could carry accommodation for up to 16 guests and around 32 crew.
Twin MTU 20V 4000’s are expected to provide a top speed of 18.5-knots.
