It will take 5-10 minutes to complete. All answers are completely anonymous, and the responses are collected by our research partner, Tapestry.

Thank you in advance for your help.

PG Yacht Design teams up with The Design Crew for Alter Ego concept

Italian studio PG Yacht Design has teamed up with Francesco Castello of The Design Crew for a new 43 metre all-aluminium concept called Alter Ego.

PG Yacht Design's exterior places a strong emphasis on light and transparency, while Castello's interiors make good use of natural and tactile materials such as onyx.

A large sliding glass door separates the main-deck cockpit from the saloon, where visual obstacles have been minimised to create the optimal view of the surroundings.

As a result, all the seating is low-level and informal, while both superyacht staircases are encased in glass to reinforce this atmosphere.

Moving forward and the owner’s cabin features fold-out balconies on both sides, a free-standing bath and floor-to-ceiling glazing by the vanity unit. Four further guest cabins below decks are arranged as two twins and two doubles, taking the total accommodation to ten.

Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to nine people, including a bridge deck captain’s cabin.

The extensive use of glass continues on the upper deck saloon, while the vast superyacht sundeck offers al fresco dining for all ten guests, while shaded under the hardtop.

Other key features include a side-loading tender garage and a pair of superyacht spa pools — one on the foredeck and another adjacent to the fold-out swim platform.

Power would come from a pair of 1,450hp diesel engines for a top speed of 16 knots, with comfortable cruising at 14 knots. PG Yacht Design estimates that Alter Ego could be built in less than 30 months, depending on the build partner.

Based in Pescara, PG Yacht Design was founded by Paolo Giordano, who previously worked with naval architect Andrea Vallicelli.

Other notable projects from the Italian studio include the 18.89 metre Vismara V62 and a range of sailing yacht concepts from 53 to 78 metres.
