Dar’s curved main su­per­struc­ture is a black, or­ganic form that re­minded Luiz DeBasto of a shark shape, so he de­signed the yacht’s mast like a fin. DeBasto also wanted to achieve clean sight­lines along the hull of the 295-foot (90me­ter) yacht. Dur­ing con­struc­tion, the ves­sel was known as Project Shark, with her wing sta­tions adding to the ham­mer­head theme. Her ex­te­rior de­sign dic­tated that there be no frames to hold the glass in place, in or­der to achieve a mono­lithic look. Al­most 4,306 square feet (400 square me­ters) of glass was used in her su­per­struc­ture. luizde­basto.com
