Finalist of the prestigious Young Designer of the Year Award is Lorenzo Berselli, with his 55 metre sailing yacht concept, Project GoWide. She accommodates her guests over five luxurious rooms all located on the lower deck, including the large owner’s suite with private access to the beach area.
One of the most notable characteristics of the sailing yacht is the 115 m2 full beam saloon located on the main deck, with full height windows on each side. Not only does this floor the area with natural light, but the placement of the saloon also allows guests on board to reach the bow from the aft cockpit by walking directly through the sun deck.
Her outside areas are equally impressive. The cockpit area offers a shaded dining area for up to ten guests, as well as a large swimming pool. Moving on to the sundeck, the area is covered in comfortable sunpads to enjoy sunbathing and the ultimate relaxation. Storage for a 7 metres and 5 metres tender is also found on board.
Discussing his inspiration behind Project GoWide, Berselli told SuperYacht Times that he looked to the automotive industry. He says, “While designing the exterior lines, in particular the shape of the main deck side windows, I was inspired by an awesome concept car of the 70s: the Lancia Stratos 0 by Bertone.”
GoWide was just one of six finalists for the prestigious Young Designer of the Year Awards. The winner was announced on the 23rd February during the Superyacht Design Symposium in Kitzbühel, Austria, and was awarded to Timur Bozca, for his superyacht concept Cauta.
