Jay Aberdoni's 57m concept Starwave revealed

23 March 2023 • Written by Rachel Ingram

Designer Jay Aberdoni has revealed renderings of a new superyacht concept that he describes as the epitome of "classical elegance".

Named Starwave, the 57-metre concept blends contemporary lines and minimalistic styling with elements inspired by the classic luxury yachts of the past.

Starwave can accommodate up to 10 guests in five cabins including an owner's suite, and features "uncompromised living spaces" thanks to her low profile bulwarks. 

Taking cues from classical yacht design, she has a fully enclosed stern, although she's far from gloomy as floor-to-ceiling windows and wraparound glass railings flood the interior with natural light.

A standout element is the beach club, which folds down to connect guests directly with the sea. The space also features a sauna and a gym which has an additional fold-out balcony so guests can watch the waves and feel the sea breeze while they exercise. 

Another highlight is the bow deck which is filled with lounge sofas, sunbeds and a pool that's protected from the wind with high glass rails.

"Starwave is a 57-metre superyacht whose effortless lines draw the unforgettable shape of a modern vessel with a hint of classical elegance," Jay Aberdoni said.

"To me, Starwave represents the definition of timelessness. A yacht that is back to the basics, minimalistic and not at all overdesigned. An immaculate composition of geometrical shapes and flowing lines that make her special in the details while portraying serenity on the outside."

Starwave, which also has a 38-metre sistership, is the latest in the yacht designer's portfolio which features concepts such as Dust and Posterity.
