- 2009 Graduation thesis (magna cum laude), Industrial Design / University of Florence# TEAM Lorenzo Carrara (concept, project, model, render),
Meccano Engineering (hullbody, structural & staic analysis)# CONCEPT In recent years yacht design mostly enclosed life aboard in beautiful saloons, opulent wellness areas, skydeck's jacuzzi & sunbathing, pushing away people from direct sea contact. We tried to get back to the sea, centering daily life aft and low-down, around the external pool/bar area, which is connected with the main saloon, the lower wellness area (with folding platforms); and the 30pp external dining area, just above the pooldeck, is separated from the nearby 30pp interior dining room by wide glassed sliding doors, resulting in a space useful also for in-harbour events, premieres or happenings. Cabin layout provides space for 24 guests in 12 different-sized guestrooms, plus an owner's private deck with extra rooms.A fore-saloon with planetarium, 8pp cinema, library and several water toys (including a small submarine) complete the guest's possibilities.
