The Young Designer of the Year Award celebrates the original concepts of student and trainee designers from around the globe. With the most recent edition sponsored by Feadship, this highly regarded award tasks young designers with a realistic client request to challenge their ideas, technical ability and aptitude for delivery. The brief is set to provide valuable and authentic insight into the reality of working as a designer within the superyacht industry.
Details of the task for the 2025 award are yet to be revealed. For some inspiration, take a look at the 2024 winner, Indonesian designer Pradipta Hakim.
