Young designer Adam Voorhees is honored to announce that he has been named the World Superyacht Young Designer of the Year at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards. Adam received the award for his design of the 66 metre Ra; the superyacht with a visionary approach to the connections between luxury, comfortable living, and the nautical lifestyle.
Named after the Egyptian sun god Amun-Ra, the yacht explores transformability of space and interactions with light to reinforce the connection with and heighten the beauty of its maritime environment. Ra exemplifies the balance between public and private as the hierarchy of living spaces hosts fewer decks with larger volumes, creating more dramatic and usable environments.
