The London-based naval architect and yacht designer Philippe Briand has released his latest project, the SY300 yacht concept. Basing her design on a smaller, high-performance racing yacht, Briand has put his stamp on a bigger sailing yacht with his characteristic clean lines and contemporary aesthetics.

With no use of motor engines, her hydrodynamic efficiency allows for her underwater turbines to charge the onboard batteries, meaning that in perfect conditions a top speed of 20 knots could be achieved.
The interiors of the two-masted sailing yacht can easily be tailored to individual tastes, but initial drawings of the SY300 concept highlight the potential of her spacious layout. On the main deck, there is room for a full-beam owner’s suite, along with an office and private terrace. Connected to the full-beam saloon is a dining area on the port side and a playroom on the starboard side.

Briand comments, “Staying true to our name, this SY300 design showcases a yacht with purpose that is in keeping with the authentic spirit of sailing. I picture it being ideal for a passionate sailor who wants to stay in touch with the water and the power of the wind.”
