Juan Ortiz Rincon is proud to introduce his project, the 65-metre modern explorer yacht Anaconda concept, for which he was chosen as Young Designer of the Year Finalist during this year’s ShowBoats Design Awards in Monaco.
The goal of this year’s Young Designer category was to create a modern, non-commercial looking 65m explorer yacht to suit the needs of an owner who is a collector of sports cars, has a relaxed approach to life, and is looking for interesting new ideas.
Anaconda is designed for setting off on worldwide adventures and traveling in a relaxed way to the most remote destinations without sacrificing any comforts of a superyacht lifestyle.
The exterior design of Anaconda reflects the imposing spirit and design language of sport cars. Her fast and dynamic appearance, reached by moving the superstructure more aft, creates a large outdoor living zone on the forward part of the yacht. It provides comfortable and cozy dining, lounging and sunbathing areas, protected from the wind and the waves and at the same time open to the surrounding environment. Folding balconies create additional lounging areas and views overlooking the sea.
The sleek lines and pure shapes of Anaconda form a clear outline, which is easily recognizable and gives the yacht a radical, individual and masculine character. The architectural approach of using large glass elements and organic structures provides the interior areas with more luminosity and creates an exciting conjunction between interior and exterior zones, offering much more usable space than other yachts of the same range.
The contemporary interior style of Anaconda, with its clear lines and open, luminous spaces, reflects perfectly the exterior design. Panoramic windows and skylights create a direct link between inside and outside areas, always recalling the surrounding sea. The owner’s cabin for example features an inside-outside private Spa Pool, which can be either integrated into the cabin or added to the exterior lounge area, depending on the weather conditions of the journey.
The material concept is based on warm, natural colours and textures, like black lip mother of pearl and coconut mosaics, combined with contemporary materials such as glass and stainless steel. A special focus lies on illumination and the integration of modern art objects. The interior style has a masculine character, providing a fresh and relaxed atmosphere.
The interior layout with its rather unusual configuration is thought to profit at the most from the available space by connecting the living zones in logical orders and forming multi-purpose areas where appropriate. This approach of zoning allows introducing several special features, like a hot air balloon departure, a private starlight observation lounge, a health spa and different thematic bars, taking the spirit of an explorer vessel to another level.
Juan Ortiz Rincon is a 23 year old Colombian Industrial Design student at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is a passionate sailor and traveler: “Ever since I was a child, I have had a great deal of curiosity about the charms and mysteries of the oceans and the vessels that sail it,” explains Ortiz Rincon. “This curiosity, over the years has turned into a passion for sailing and yacht design. I am particularly fascinated with the study and exploration of human factors, technologies and morphologies, which, applied to objects and spaces, generate a more efficient use of resources and maximize the comfort.”
