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.

Sterling Scott-designed motor yacht Project REBORN shortlisted for IY&A Award 2014

November 15, 2013

Sterling Scott has been nominted for the International Yacht & Aviation Award 2014 with their motor yacht Project Reborn, entering the ‘Power Yacht over 60m’ category.

Luxury yacht Project REBORN designed by Sterling Scott at sea

Luxury yacht Project REBORN designed by Sterling Scott at sea

Luxury charter yacht Reborn was originally built in 1999 by the Dutch Shipyard Amels and designed by Terrance Disdale, both interior and exterior. The new Owner wanted to make the yacht a complete refit, so she would become his own. This was achieved with the new birth of “Reborn” in 2010 designed by Sterling/Scott and lengthened by 5.5 meters by naval architects McFarlane Ship Design.

Project REBORN superyacht - Stern

Project REBORN superyacht - Stern

Boadicea, as she was originally named, was a mighty yacht and had been running efficiently across the seas for years with a family who loved her. As time passed, that same yacht had another chance with another family, who remodelled her and brought her into the 21st century, looking like a brand new yacht. She was lengthened, with a new sheer line, hull colour, window pattern, internal layout, sun-deck, swim-deck and benefiting waterline. This demonstrates that anything is possible and it is only the start of what lies ahead for the future of yachting.

The new owner entertained and passionately embraced the changes that brought Reborn into the category of a competing yachts of this day and age, for it’s modern design both externally and internally, with it’s well thought out layout and sleek new features. She now features a double height living area, a reconfigured and updated Owner’s additional cabin with 180-degree views, not to mention other features. Externally the pool is now sunken, the mast is refined and modernized to reflect the yachts overall design, the hull is a light customized taupe selected together by the Owner’s wife with the help of the designer.

The family who bought luxury yacht Reborn believed in the designer and worked closely with her ideas ensuring they were portrayed into each sketch, profile or detailed drawing made prior to the work being carried out. Whilst the work was being done, both naval architect and designer in the best interest of the client supervised the project carefully.

Photos of Lurssen’s 115m PELORUS yacht

July 10, 2013

One of the largest yachts in the world, the 115m mega yacht Pelorus has been spotted a few years ago near Stathelle in Norway by Tomas Østberg-Jacobsen, a passionate yacht photographer. The magnificent Lurssen built PELORUS Yacht was designed by Tim Heywood for her original owner: a Saudi businessman. The informal yet luxurious, beach-house like interior was created by Terence Disdale.

SuperyachtDESIGN Week, June 18 – 20, 2013

May 23, 2013

Set to run at Design Centre, London’s Chelsea Harbour, from June 18 to 20, 2013, the inaugural SuperyachtDESIGN Week will bring together the influential and innovative design minds as well as suppliers, having worked on such floating palaces as the 78m superyacht Venus or the recently launched 180m mega yacht Project Azzam.

SuperyachtDesign Week

The calendar is already saturated with superyacht conferences, boat shows, awards ceremonies and symposiums, so this will be none of the above. Nor will it be an egotistical display of wealth and excess. SuperyachtDESIGN Week will instead be a celebration of yacht design. Spread over three days, the event will feature discussions, scheduled meetings, workshops and demonstrations on all aspects of superyacht design, with some of the industry’s top names.

A keynote speech entitled ‘Rough Luxe’ will come from internationally acclaimed architect and designer Rabih Hage, the award-winning mind behind some of the most exciting residential and hotel designs around the world as well as exclusive interiors and unique furniture design. A second keynote address will ask ‘what needs to change?’ Led by Vripack’s Marnix Hoekstra, it will be a fluid debate on the main areas that need to change in the serious world of design, architecture and creativity.
