Young Designer of the Year Award winners – where are they now?

Timur Bozca Ydoy

Timur Bozca, 2015 winner

Design: Cauta, 55m sailing superyacht with revolutionary Dynarig

The 2015 Young Designer of the Year Award brief called for an innovative design for a hypothetical first-time owner — a couture fashion designer who planned to live aboard and who came with an extremely specific set of requirements for cruising and lifestyle. This was the first year a sailing yacht design was specified, and presented a challenge for the entrants, many of whom lacked significant technical knowledge in the field. But it was young designer Timur Bozca and his striking Cauta design, with her forward-looking exterior style and innovative Dynarig sail plan, that won the day.

Despite receiving several job offers after winning the Neptune, Bozca elected to continue working on his own. Based in Milan, his design studio, Timur Bozca, specialises in both yacht and auto design. He is currently working on a range of projects, from an 80-metre explorer, 60- and 90-metre superyachts, to a ‘Mega Villa’ and a special edition café racer motorbike.
