Best Exterior Styling - Motor Yachts 45m and Above Winner


Length: 110m

Exterior styling: Lobanov

Naval Architect: Azure Naval Architects/Oceanco

Builder: Oceanco

Once in a blue moon is a phrase that acknowledges something of rare occurrence, and with the plentiful entries in the motor yacht exteriors category, the judges were not looking for the merely beautiful, they sought what is extraordinary and innovative. Igor Lobanov’s cerebral design for Jubilee delivers on all counts. The trompe l’oeil treatment of deck perimeters engages both the senses and curiosity with imaginative glazing that calls into question the true number of decks above main. But it is Lobanov’s vision for seeing Jubilee from the sky as an island and the undulating patterns of light and shadow created by her curvaceous deck shapes and long flattening overhangs that make this yacht breathtaking and unique. The surprising reversed metallic blue and white paint scheme is also appreciated for its freshness and for keeping the visual height of the profile in check. The innovation of seamless exterior deck overheads and continuous LED strip lighting are significant.
