We have already shown it to potential owners who found it very interesting indeed,” explains Pezzini. “The three designers have a very fresh yet sophisticated touch. It feels very positive to be working with young minds: you see solutions from a whole new perspective. I found working with them very interesting. I even put them in contact with my children so they could keep collaborating. Together they represent the future of both yacht design and Floating Life”.
