dc.description.abstractA background in designing and sailing custom high-performance race yachts unrestricted by rating rules and formulas has fostered a penchant to prioritise performance and enjoyment of sailing in each new design. This project explores the possibilities for performance, function and form achievable through refocusing the design drivers in the development of a superyacht, with a fresh emphasis on the design and engineering aspects of construction, hull form, sail plan and appendages. This design prioritises performance over the traditional aesthetics, features and accommodations often associated with superyachts, while maintaining superyacht stature and appeal. Drawing on knowledge gained from the development of smaller coastal and offshore performance race-yachts, this project explores how to capitalise on many of the technologies that have been refined in these smaller yachts. This refocus of concept has resulted in a departure from the traditional superyacht style, offering high performance coupled with unique and tasteful aesthetics, appealing to those seeking a more visceral sailing experience from a superyacht.en_NZ
