Video: Serial yacht owner Bill Duker discusses superyacht Sybaris

The Perini Navi sailing yacht Sybaris, one of the largest superyachts at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, was launched earlier this year. The 70 metre ketch is an instant icon and the biggest yacht to ever have been built in Italy.

This incredible sailing yacht was commissioned by serial yacht owner Bill Duker and Boat International caught up with the lawyer-turned-software tycoon during the show. In this video, he reveals his favourite spaces on board his custom superyacht Sybaris:

Aside from the hugely sophisticated electrical system to help with sail handling (Sybaris has a sail plan of more that 3,000 square metres split across two carbon fibre masts), the elegance of design throughout the boat is truly unique with the sleek exterior design by Perini Navi perfectly complementing the PH Design interiors.

“We were going for a clean, modern, different look,” Duker said. “It was designed to be something that was beautiful, where every piece of furniture, where every joint, where every aspect was tasteful and all worked together.”

His favourite spaces on board are the fully equipped gym, the elegant flybridge and the master cabin, which is a contemporary and sleek room with immaculate attention to detail. In fact the distinctiveness of this vessel is very much in the details — carefully curated artworks are peppered throughout the interiors, extending into the furniture as well as décor, with a single sheet of titanium running the full length of the yacht’s ceilings. Duker added: “It was designed to be at harmony and a place where you can feel harmonious.”
