Timothy Baldacci’s vibrant Ardea Alba design

Written by Charl van Rooy

Young Designer Timothy Baldacci has shared his superyacht concept with us that earned him a place amongst the Top 6 finalists in the Young Designer of the Year competition recently hosted by Boat International and Oceanco.

The brief that was presented to the designers this year called for the exterior styling of a modern and elegant 80-metre vessel. The yacht would have a low profile and was to include a limousine tender to be used for the transport of up to eight guests.

Baldacci drew his inspiration from the Ardea Alba, or Great Egret bird, and managed to work the S-like shape of its neck into the exterior profile of the yacht. The superstructure consists nearly entirely of glass surfaces and plays with the future capabilities of this important material.

The limousine and general-use tenders have the same style and are designed to offer guests a comfortable and safe experience in a minimalist environment.
