In our new regular photo-series, we spoke to the yacht owners, designers and builders of tomorrow during the Superyacht Design Symposium to find out what matters most to them, and how it will inform the superyacht industry. The environment, new materials and flexibility all emerge as growing themes, but there is one thing everyone agrees on: this is a generation that does not like limits.
I grew up in Kaş on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, and boating is a kind of lifestyle there.
Everything is changing around us and we need to allow the technology that’s already affecting form and function to push more boundaries in the yachting industry as well.
In 20 years we will have many different kinds of hull, and the amount of glass used on superstructures will increase. Engines and technical equipment will also take up less space, so interior areas will increase in size. Also, I think new types of multifunctional yachts will launch, like a submarine and yacht combo – a subyacht.
The next generation was born into technology in every aspect of their lives. And this is a generation that doesn’t like limits.
