Strengthening UK’s global reputation for Design innovation, London-based design firm Andrew Winch Designs was proud to receive three awards for its latest motoryacht deliveries at the last month’s ShowBoats Design Awards. AWD has been honoured with the coveted Neptune Awards for the Exterior Design of the 99m mega yacht Madame Gu as well as for the tenders for Madame Gu and the 62m superyacht Sea Owl.

On the 24th February 2014, at the exclusive Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Austria the ShowBoats Design Award took place. Celebrating excellence in yacht design and honouring the industry’s creative talents, the annual event attracted an international audience of superyacht owners as well as the leading lights of the international yacht design industry.

The ShowBoats Design Award focuses on the fundamental design aspects of superyacht design such as exterior design styling and interior layout. Judged by a respected panel of yacht owners and independent experts, the winning superyachts are selected following a meticulous study of their design.

In the fiercely contested Exterior Design category, Olympic champion Shirley Robertson O.B.E. who hosted the event, pointed out that all but two members of the elite judging panel awarded had awarded the 99m motor yacht Madame Gu full marks!

“We are thrilled to have won these three prestigious awards,” said Andrew Winch, “as each award recognises the talent, creativity and skill of our dedicated Yacht design team. Whether we are designing a large superyacht or a compact tender vessel, our design team approaches each project with the same dedication, attention to detail and commitment. We are immensely proud of each and every one of our yachts’ quality and individuality, and it is humbling to see our design skills recognised by our peers.”

Unforgettable ShowBoats Design Awards 2014 Ceremony at Swarowski Crystal Worlds in Austria

February 27, 2014

The winners of this year’s prestigious ShowBoats Design Awards were unveiled in the fabulous surrounds of Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Austria yesterday evening. Eighteen coveted golden Neptune trophies were presented in front of a sell-out audience of superyacht owners, designers, as well as icons of industry from all over the world.

The evening’s big winners included Palumbo and the creative team behind the innovative Columbus Sport Hybrid 40m yacht, which picked up three awards for her fresh, elegant interior design, harmonious holistic design and environmental considerations. The judges felt that stylist Hydro Tec, interior designer Hot Lab Yacht & Design and the build team were firmly on the same page for this project and this was reflected in their decision to award multiple prizes to her talented creators.

In the Interior Design category, the 32.64m sailing yacht Inukshuk was deemed a runaway on visual appeal, functionality, use of space and innovative features. The passion of the method by which Adam Lay’s cerebral design approach met the owner’s brief — “with nature not with glamour” — was key to the win. In addition, the judges agreed that her exterior styling by Frers Naval Architecture and Engineering shows the seamlessness of the design vocabulary between naval architect and owner; resulting in a fast and safe family sailing yacht that offers exceptional comfort.

Andrew Winch and his design team were commended for their work on custom tenders to Feadship’s 99m mega yacht Madame Gu and 62m superyacht Sea Owl, resulting in a joint first-place and the studio receiving two neptunes for different tender projects.

The Young Designer of the Year Award, sponsored by Oceanco, once again produced a high standard of finalist entries from aspiring yacht designers all over the globe; many of whom were present at the gala evening. The winner, chosen by a panel of the industry’s leading yacht designers and naval architects, was judged to be Raphael Laloux for his project Symphony yacht. In the judges’ opinion, he created an elegant, well balanced vessel that entirely fulfilled design brief while introducing some novel ideas.

The final award presented was the Lifetime Achievement Award sponsored by Fincantieri Yachts, honouring yacht designer Terence Disdale who this year celebrates forty years in the superyacht industry. Guest presenter Tim Heywood described his designs as “distinctive, timelessly modern exteriors with rich, interiors that create a calming, stylish and welcoming ambience.”

Boat International Media take this opportunity to acknowledge all of the sponsors and partners of the 2014 ShowBoats Design Awards who have helped to make the event a resounding success.

Special thanks are extended to their gracious gala evening hosts and gold sponsor, Swarovski, and to silver sponsors Hodgdon Yachts and Blohm+Voss. Thank you to bronze sponsors Oceanco, who continue to support the Young Designer of the Year Award, and to RINA and Greenline Yacht Interiors. Their gratitude also goes to the new award sponsors for 2014; Boutsen Design, Fincantieri Yachts, JFA Yachts, Front Street Shipyard and to DKT Artworks who supplied the beautiful Judges’ Commendation prize.

Hodgdon-built Limo T/T SEA OWL Yacht wins ShowBoats Design Award 2014

February 26, 2014

Hodgdon Yachts is proud to announce that their Limo T/T Sea Owl yacht has received the Tender Design Award, handed over during the recent ShowBoats Design Awards 2014 ceremony in Austria. Limo T/T Sea Owl has been designed by world-renowned Andrew Winch Designs.

Ed Roberts – Director of Sales&Marketing refers: “Hodgdon Yachts is proud to share the limelight with winner Andrew Winch Designs in receiving the coveted Showboats Design Award for the best Limo Tender”. In addition: “the winning tender emulates the design of the mothership M/Y Sea Owl also designed by Andrew Winch Designs of London.  In the case of the tenders for Sea Owl,  the naval architecture and engineering was by Hodgdon’s own in-house engineering team”.

The boat was specially engineered and constructed using infused epoxy carbon fibre construction to meet the client’s demanding weight requirements.

Limo T/T superyacht Sea Owl

Limo T/T superyacht Sea Owl

The limousine tender features the exceptional craftsmanship and sophisticated systems engineering that Hodgdon is so well known for. Outside, a defining characteristic of the AWD design is a compound curve teak clad transom exceptionally executed. Inside, the full wood raised panel teak joinery interior features separate lavatory and wash basin lockers with luxury leather seating for up to 8 guests. Systems highlights include NEMA 2000 systems integrated iPad in the salon, electrically retracting glass moon roof, electrically retracting glass aft bulkhead, hydraulically lifting roof, lithium ion smart battery system and more.

This is a limo superyacht tender many of the ShowBoats Award judges said they would like to own as it makes a lovely day boat as well with air conditioning, heating and an enclosed stand-up head, but unlike a Venetian water taxi, it features an open stern deck for easier boarding. Fledgling, as she is named, is a perfect complement stylistically to her mothership, Sea Owl, and features the same level of finish detail and joinery style as the Feadship she serves. Just as Sea Owl is a fantasy, this tender would seem so as well as its half glass roof can slide away to create an indoor/outdoor atmosphere or the roof can lift vertically to provide an open air option. The charging and docking stations for phones and iPods are a nice touch, as is the 40-knots top speed.

This 8.6-meter luxury yacht tender echoes the clean lines, green hull and teak finishes of her mothership. She is designed to transport children and family with ease and luxurious comfort. The cockpit is situated in the bow and passengers can feel part of the cruising experience thanks to the iPad and information system that keeps them informed of location and navigational data.

2013 has been a very exciting year for the AWD Yachting team who have already delivered three exquisite projects – the 99m mega yacht MADAME GU, the 62m motor yacht SEA OWL, and the 33m sailing yacht INOUI – along with four bespoke Super Tenders. They also collaborated closely with their Aviation team to deliver a wonderful Helicopter Tender for a Motor Yacht client. In the coming months, the fleet of “AWD” designed yachts will further increase with the addition of a 92m Oceanco project and a 53m MY Explorer – each one designed to fulfil the individual dreams of its Owner and built to the very highest of standards.

August 19, 2013

Andrew Winch Designs handed over the 62-metre mega yacht ‘SEA OWL’, representing the most customised yacht of her size ever constructed at Feadship, to her Owners. Boasting exquisite Exterior and Interior designs by Andrew Winch, luxury motor yacht ‘SEA OWL’ sets new standards of design and craftsmanship, with sophisticated exterior lines and a lovely interior, inspired by nature, magic, as well as dreams.

2013 has seen a year of successful collaborations between the London based, Andrew Winch Designs and their Dutch counterparts. For the Andrew Winch Designs team, superyacht ‘SEA OWL’ completes a hat-trick of English/Dutch deliveries, following in the wake of the magnificent 99m mega yacht ‘MADAME GU’ (the largest Superyacht built in the Netherlands) and the bright and contemporary 108′ sailing yacht ‘INOUI’ (Andrew Winch Designs studio’s 22nd sailing yacht).

“I am immensely proud of SEA OWL, MADAME GU and INOUI,” comments Andrew Winch, “I am grateful for the vision and trust of our Clients and the dedication of the teams at Feadship and Vitters for their unwavering ambition to realise each of these projects.” Andrew continues, “To create such a variety of individually beautiful Superyachts, requires a huge amount of talent, creativity and attention to detail and I am so proud of the way that our Studio’s talented team members have worked with their Dutch counterparts to execute these most magnificent of projects.”

Below is a gallery for the outstanding charter yachts with design by Andrew Winch.

Feadship delivers 62m mega yacht SEA OWL

July 23, 2013

The breath-taking 62-metre Feadship mega yacht Sea Owl has been handed over to her owners in a special ceremony in Amsterdam’s legendary Maritime Museum. The clients were so delighted with their new yacht that they decided to organise a party for the Feadship personnel involved in this exceptionally custom superyacht. Together with their partners, a total of 800 guests wined and dined with Sea Owl yacht’s owners as well as their family on a summer evening that will live long in the memory of all who were present.

Having been recently restored to its former glory, the National Maritime Museum building – which was originally constructed in 1656 on 1800 wooden piles – is a splendid place to visit at any time. It contains a superb replica of the Dutch East India company vessel Amsterdam and an unrivalled collection of maritime artifacts. The museum is also home to a number of Feadship models, but the best reason of all for the owners to choose this spot to take official delivery of their Feadship was the stylish location it provided for them to treat the workforce.

“Sea Owl is the most sophisticated boat built by the industry to date,” Dick van Lent told the audience at the event. “From the interior to the exterior, from the tenders to the onboard systems, from the wood carvings to the murals, this is a truly extraordinary bespoke achievement.”

“Having worked on various projects since superyacht Pegasus (ex White Rabbit) in 1994, we already knew that Feadship is the best,” added interior designer Andrew Winch. “It has been a magical adventure to work with the owners of superyacht Sea Owl, with whom we have become great friends over the past five years. This friendship gave everyone the personal drive to push things further and deliver something that is truly special in our lives.”

The owner agreed. “The talent and artistry that each of the craftsmen brought to this project has made the build an amazing experience for myself and my family. We chose Feadship because we wanted to create a boat that reflected our personality, to be intimately involved in the build process itself, and most of all to have fun. Another shipyard could have built a similar boat to Sea Owl but no other shipyard could have done so with such attention to detail, resourcefully tackling the obstacles that arise in a custom construction while at the same time making it a complete pleasure for us to participate. Craftsmanship shines through every detail of the finished product and Sea Owl is a jewel, the pinnacle of a shipbuilder’s talent that will be the envy of all and a beacon for others seeking perfection.”

Sea Owl yacht’s jade mist green and oyster white colour scheme certainly made for a remarkable sight as the Feadship nestled alongside the National Maritime Museum in the heart of Amsterdam. Having already successfully completed her sea trials, the fledging Feadship will now spread her wings to her maiden adventure in Scandinavia.
