Northrop & Johnson unveils world’s first superyacht grand piano

Northrop & Johnson unveils world’s first superyacht grand piano

Finishing your main saloon with a beautiful grand piano is the ideal elegant touch for entertaining guests after dinner. However, their size means they are often the preserve of only the world’s largest yachts.

Now brokerage firm Northrop & Johnson have solved this problem by teaming up with Goldfinch to create the world’s first grand piano specifically designed for superyachts.

The Goldfinch Sygnet is the smallest grand piano ever designed, measuring just 127cm wide, and will be officially launched at the Palm Beach International Boat Show this week. Hand-built in Cambridge, UK with a spruce Strunz soundboard and Abel hammers, the Sygnet also comes with a host of modern features including a self-playing mode and wireless iPod controls.

The piano itself is also exceptionally striking with contemporary curves and a minimalist white and gold colour scheme. “The Sygnet has been meticulously designed to perfectly fit aboard a superyacht with its graceful curves and unparalleled elegance,” explained Goldfinch director Thomas Norman. “Our craftsmanship is combined with cutting edge technology for a seamless finish and ultimate musicality.”

“Northrop & Johnson is delighted to help Goldfinch unveil its newest creation, the Sygnet — a unique piano that is a perfect symphony of music and design and is beautifully suited for the yachting industry,” added Ottaviano Iacono, strategic partnership director at Northrop & Johnson.
