Bannenberg & Rowell Reveals 65 Metre Concept Telex
by Miranda Blazeby
Bannenberg & Rowell has presented a new 65 metre superyacht concept named Telex.
Designed inside and out by the studio, Telex features a “well balanced profile” with layered decks, a vertical bow and wide forward upper superstructure.
Key numbers include an 11.8 metre beam, 3.5 metre draft and estimated 1300GT. The studio said the new concept had been inspired by the “thematic pillars” of adventure, active lifestyle, power and proportion, pinned together by the “fundamental notion of freedom.”
As a result, Telex is equipped for adventure. The lower deck stern area includes a gym, dive shop, wellness area and optional submarine storage forward of the main “club room”. This area is accessed via internal stairs that are illuminated by natural light through the full height glazing.
The “modern open plan furnishing style” includes a main living room centred around a fireplace and illuminated by natural light thanks to full height panoramic glazing. The studio described this area as “an all-season room that links deck and interior spaces.”
Meanwhile, the aft deck and main living room can be opened up to blend with the pool area, creating an area of “shade and sunlight, relaxation and seating,” according to the studio.
Accommodation is for a total of 14 guests in seven staterooms, comprising four lower deck double cabins and a master suite on the main deck with two additional family or guest bedrooms. The crew quarters meanwhile allows for a staff of 14.
Elsewhere, Telex’s wheelhouse sits on the bridge deck, while the main deck features an observation lounge and free planned skylounge.
Speaking about the new concept, Simon Rowell, said: “Our Project Telex explores the freedom that yachting can bring. Privacy, space, time and adventure, these are all rare commodities, but freedom is the raw material and the fuel; it is perhaps the ultimate luxury.”
