Young Designer of the Year Awards 2020 Finalists Announced

Young Designer of the Year Awards 2020 Finalists Announced

4 of 7 4/7

Chris Lane

Concept Name: Hydra

Nationality: British

Education: Ergo Creative/Nottingham Trent

Designer Statement:

Hydra is an 80 metre refit project named after the mythical sea serpent of Greek Mythology and a star constellation from which it derives. The exterior design uses cues from current trends in land and naval architecture to create a dynamic and unique aesthetic which would stand out in the yachting industry. The colour palette and geometric lines of the exterior bring the refit to the modern day, whilst the interior benefits of many modern technologies including smart glass which allows light into areas when desired, or become opaque to create privacy. The yacht also boasts genesis which create electric power to service the yacht and to drive the azimuth pod hybrid propulsion system.

The aft beach club space is a unique area which is centrally divided by a glass walled pool accessed from the aft main deck above. The glass pool brings light into an otherwise dark area which is populated by a wellbeing space which includes a gym, massage room and sauna on the starboard side and a lounge bar and small cinema room on the port side. Two large drop down doors expand the space further to create adjoining bathing platforms and create a seamless indoor/outdoor space.
