4 design features we love on Brenta 80DC Cool Breeze

Cool Breeze

One of the most striking design features on the Brenta 80DC sailing yacht Cool Breeze, built by Michael Schmidt and designed by Brenta Design, has to be her cool green hull colour. Inspiration came from Schmidt, who loves the look and colour of vintage Vespas, revealed Brenta Design's Lorenzo Argento.

This colour was perfect for the owner, Argento explained, because the owner loves classic styling – he owns a Bounty and Herreshoff-designed yacht from the 30’s.

Cool Breeze's classic layout

Including a central cockput and sunken coachroof

The classic styling of Cool Breeze extends to her layout, too.

“We have defined three different deck levels," Argento says. "One aft, one in the middle with 300mm bulwark and one forward. These different deck levels play a very important role as it looks like the coachroof is sunken into the decks helping to reduce the visual impact. Further the vertical coachroof sides have, like in the old days, portlights which helps greatly ventilation.

“Another idea we brought back from the old days is the central cockpit. It’s not very popular lately, but it allows for a very spacious and very private part of the boat with a proper owner’s suite that overlooks the aft terrace at sea.”

The Sir David Chipperfield-designed interior of Cool Breeze

Chipperfield's first yacht

Legendary global architect Sir David Alan Chipperfield lent his hand to the interior of Brenta 80DC Cool Breeze. This is Chipperfield’s first foray into working with yachts, though he is no stranger to sailing and designed the America’s Cup building in Valencia, Spain.

“He never worked on an interior boat before, but he is a sailor and he enjoys day sailing with his own B42 – which we designed by the way,” reveals Argento.

“Chipperfield called for a very “safe” interior with a generous radius and a very clever use of materials and colours in true respect of the hull form and structure layout.

“His interiors gently intersect with existing structural elements clearly showing the hull form and adapting the interior to her shape – the table bench in the main saloon is a good example.

“I think this is very innovative and yet very sober.”
