Five yacht designers you should be following on Instagram

Written by Charl van Rooy

As a creative platform, Instagram hosts surprisingly few pages that offer daily design inspiration in the field of yachting. Original and thought-provoking design content is somewhat lacking and Instagram as a medium certainly offers a space for up-and-coming designers to step up and deliver something fresh and never seen before. Here we take a look at five design teams who take their Instagram game seriously and who have managed to create a unique presentation of their respective styles.

Bannenberg & Rowell

Putting a personal, unfiltered spin on the Instagram yachting scene, the views of London design studio Bannenberg & Rowell are randomly laid out on their page feed consisting of humorous behind-the-scenes moments, throwbacks from the studio’s archives, and weekly design inspirations.

Lobanov Yacht Design

‘Young’ established designer Igor Lobanov is always up for talking about yacht design and often reveals his way of creating the studio’s signature sculpture-like design style in detailed and comprehensive Instagram posts.
