Superyacht Design Symposium and Awards

Owen Clarke designer Merfyn Owen attended this years Superyacht Design Conference both as a designer and for another year as one of the ShowBoats Design Awards judges, as well as chairing the naval architecture awards panel.

While the World Superyacht Awards, also run by Boat International Media recognises superyachts in their entirety, the ShowBoats Design Awards focuses directly on the fundamental design aspects of superyacht design such as naval architecture, exterior design and interior layout, and brings the specialist design skills of the industy’s most talented teams into the spotlight.

The Superyacht Design Symposium is an anual event that draws the biggest names in superyacht design as well as experts from the wider designer community, including automotive, aerospace and product design. Also attending, debating and presenting are superyacht owners and suppliers to the industry. The topics are wide ranging from 'what is beauty ?' to probably the best attended technical breakout discussion; 'Cruising without limits' which inroduced the audience to aspects of cruising design for high latitude/ice navigation. This popular topic continued with several groups discussing various points raised during the coffee breaks and later.

Owen Clarke Design are currently in the process of designing a  20m high latitude cruising yacht for an experienced client, with a further 22m yacht planned by the Autumn.
