Winners Revealed for the 2020 BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards

2 of 19 2/19

Outstanding Exterior Design Motor Yachts – 50m and above

Lady S

Length: 93m

Exterior stylist: Michael Leach Design

Naval architecture: Feadship De Voogt

Builder: Feadship

Michael Leach Design hid the yacht’s high volume within a contemporary low profile, with a near plumb bow, a visible chine and complex shapes and beauty lines that employ shadow rather than paint to break up hull surfaces. Bands of black glass emphasise the yacht’s length. Judges appreciated the open and very liveable deck spaces and the transparency between decks brought about by balconies with glass inserts and a clever wasp waist that makes the helipad/sundeck seem like a special destination while ushering light to the owner’s deck below. The way the gym’s full-beam skylight transitions to opening glass walls presented an engineering challenge to builder Feadship, as did the owner’s insistence that there be no exposed hinges on any exterior doors or opening panels. Maximising sleekness, stern bollards hide below sections of deck and air intake grilles are disguised by strips of glass. A massive pool on main deck links the stern beach club to the living areas and guest accommodation. A touch-and-go landing area forward of the master suite can be rigged as a sports court in minutes and three huge hatches open the beach club, sports bar and massage room to the sea at the stern.
