Designed by Milan-based studio Hot Lab, motor explorer yacht T500 TETHYS has hybrid propulsion options available for optimal choice between range and environmental sensitivity.

The concept exterior showcases four decks dedicated to outdoor living, starting from the spacious lower deck swim platform up to a sundeck with forward and aft terraces. Versatility has been integrated into E/Y T500 TETHYS from the start, and the large main deck aft has a stern infinity pool which can be covered for a flush deck area, and a helipad for convenient connections or a bird’s eye view of breath-taking destinations.

Both the upper deck and sundeck have options for dining and lounging, while the foredeck has a dedicated sunbathing spot where guests can enjoy uninterrupted views of the surroundings.

The interiors have also been designed by Hot Lab as refined, calm social spaces connected to the outdoor world through full-height windows along the port and starboard sides. Glass sliding doors can be pulled back to let in the warmth and fresh air of destinations such as the Cote d’Azur and Italian Riviera in their summer splendour, while the ability to cruise in high latitudes makes the majesty of Greenland and Svalbard more than just a dream.

The climate-controlled interior also has two convertible spaces on the lower deck which can be used as a cinema, gym, office, additional guest/staff cabins or other leisure purposes.

The Master suite has its own office with lounge area in addition to a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, forming a private sanctuary for work and rest while on long journey lasting months or more.
