editors' letters

When we launched our Next Generation series last year to showcase superyachting’s next wave of power players, we were intrigued to discover what trends might emerge. Some clear themes are already coming through, which we hope will spread a little optimism. One key learning is that upcycling and innovative green solutions are consistent concerns for our future pioneers. As yacht photographer Olga Logvina says in our photo shoot on page 110, “The most important thing for millennials is that what they’re doing is meaningful and makes an impact.” Another concern we hear about is longevity, and as Simon de Burton points out in our wellness focus ( page 36 ), the wealthy are no longer accepting of the fact that life should end after three score years and ten.…

Charlotte Hogarth-Jones Charlotte is Boat International ’s new features and development editor and has also written for The Times and Robb Report . She reveals the growing trend for superyacht spas on page 132. What would your dream superyacht spa look like? I love Nordic design so something that references the original Finnish saunas, while using mostly reclaimed materials What was your most impressive discovery researching this story? The cryotherapy chamber that Feadship has installed on one of its new launches is pretty amazing. Although I can’t claim I’d be the first one volunteering to go in it! Do owners have priorities when planning the perfect spa? Some want a big social space so they can be surrounded by friends, while others want a place to find sanctuary when…

fine lines

“I started designing hull lines when I was 11,” says Philippe Briand at his London studio. Those lines were for the small sailing yachts he was racing – seeking a design edge even then. Now a famous sailing superyacht designer, he also created the Vitruvius range of world-roaming motor yachts with his partner Veerle Battiau and has a studio of talented young designers – but he still always pens hull lines himself. You can see his hand on this 55.6-metre Perini Navi, which the yard floated in Turkey ahead of completion in Italy for a 2020 delivery. It is the fourth Vitruvius by Perini Navi, after the 49.5-metre Exuma , 55.7-metre Galileo G and 73-metre Nautilus (ex- Grace E ). Floor-to-ceiling glazing on three decks marks her from her…

zeal of the convert

Time and money are precious and remain the main reasons why a prospective superyacht owner might choose a conversion Over a new build. But remove these factors and the advantages of transforming an older commercial, already seaworthy vessel into a pleasure yacht remain bountiful.Marcela de Kern Royer, business development consultant at Icon Yachts, highlights the environmental benefits of reworking an existing hull over building afresh. “There are so many boats in the world already – why build another one?” she asks. “Just use a hull that is seaworthy and strong and build a brand new superyacht on top of it.”De Kern Royer points to Icon’s 2015 conversion of Legend , a 77.4-metre former Soviet ice-breaker launched in 1974. In just a year, Legend was transformed into a luxury explorer…

eye opener

Andrew Winch began his journey to dream-maker in Jon Bannenberg’s yacht design studio in 1980, a young man bubbling with ideas, recently out of design school and fresh from an adventure at sea on a 16-metre sailing boat. With a few years of studio experience under his belt, he set out on his own in 1986 and established Andrew Winch Design (now Winch Design), with his wife, Jane. Within a few years, he had become one of the world’s most in-demand yacht designers.Winch’s credo and approach became the solid foundations for an ever-expanding body of work and a growing design office, which has drawn some of the world’s most iconic yachts – Phoenix 2 , Madame Gu , as well as sailing yachts Inoui , Unfurled and Cyclos III…
