We approach the design globally, like a sculpture, only after having a global proportioned design in place we intervene on the detailing, usually independently by the areas of the yacht. As the technology advances more possibilities and complex shapes become accessible. Usually a contemporary design offers aesthetical options not available previously, without falling into formal exercises of little use. The indoor outdoor integration has become a ‘leitmotif’ of the contemporary yachting life and this necessarily impacts the aesthetics of the vessel substantially.Providing a design solution which will remain pleasing while containing huge windows and transparent areas to favour the perception of openness is a must for the contemporary yacht designer.
Sleekness and beauty, while retaining interior volume is the main concern for this kind of yacht. Besides this we have been extremely meticulous about the detailing both at a global scale, while seeing the yacht from the distance, and for the little subtle ones. Clearly, the shipyard wanted a style with broad appeal that could be easily personalised by prospective clients. From a designer’s perspective, trying to please all the people all the time can easily lead to banality taking precedence over creativity.

The source of our inspiration has always been the nature where efficiency of design andengineering give beings their ultimate form over billions of years of evolution. Thus, our aim was boil to down the fundamental needs of human intuition of coziness and build up from there to give maximised feelings. As the inspiration comes from nature itself, we are actually forming the next-gen version of nature in an arbitrary product without losing the sense of harmony between themselves, as its one.
