The futuristic, 78ft customised luxury model is equipped with smart technology, and was the first yacht to be presented at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show
Numarine and Furrion unveiled the Adonis, a 78-foot customised luxury yacht that aims to provide an entirely new experience on water through the use of smart technology, at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, USA.
Furrion is a global creator of innovative products and solutions for the consumer, specialty vehicle and marine markets, while Numarine is a European high-performance motor yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul that builds yachts from 62-105 ft. Furrion’s hardware and software solutions, combined with Numarine’s prestige in boat building, gave birth to a masterful blend of artistry, design and advanced technology.
This is the first time ever that a yacht displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show, marking the show’s expansion into marine concepts. Adonis is a luxury smart yacht – a concept combining luxury with futuristic innovation and artificial intelligence. This yacht houses the best of Furrion’s technology, from audiovisual electronics, kitchen appliances, camera observation and monitoring.
Adonis is the third concept design from Furrion Design. It joins Limitless, a customised fifth wheel that when joined with Hercules, a futuristic semi-truck, create a 4G connected living experience that redefines luxury mobility. Furrion Designs’ first concept vehicle was Elysium, the motorhome complete with a hot tub and helicopter on top that Furrion introduced at CES 2017. All of Furrion’s concept fleet is outfitted with the latest in technology, combining smart living solutions with sophisticated design for a luxury mobile lifestyle experience.
“Our concept fleet gives us the flexibility to showcase our innovation practically anywhere, and we are excited to unveil Adonis here at CES 2019,” said Matt Fidler, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Furrion. “Furrion’s history is rooted in marine and now we are able to combine the best of our technology, design and futuristic innovation to deliver an experience unlike no other. The addition of our virtual concierge with artificial intelligence, Angel, gives consumers an always-present assistant, with or without internet connection.”
Adonis is a grand yacht that houses the best of Furrion’s technology, from audio and video to a full chef’s kitchen, safety and observation. Angel seamlessly integrates to control them all. Angel is powered by a limitless network built with intelligence that responds to the user’s every move, always ready to assist in previously unimaginable ways.
Angel can deliver the news and weather, order food from the kitchen, control music playlists, guide the user through a yoga workout and more. Powered by artificial intelligence, it uses facial recognition to learn one’s personal preferences to customise the experience. Learning the user’s preferences helps Angel suggest things he or she may like, like a new activity at the destination, a new restaurant or even a new outfit, as it learns his/her sizes and recommends outfits from favoured retailers.
With voice control, Angel can deploy the drone to provide security surveillance of the surroundings or to take photos of moments and places. The Adonis drone will continually add new features and functions as its technology advances. The cockpit features the Furrion monitoring system that displays everything from navigation to equipment monitoring. Angel is able to constantly monitor and alert the user to changes that need to be made, whether in navigation perhaps due to weather, or to engineering issues that need attention. Everything Angel is monitoring can be viewed and controlled through the Furrion touchpad smart remote.
On board the Adonis, there are several Furrion Smart Mirrors with interactive displays that work in offline mode as well.
