Nominated for Young Designer of the Year by Boat International Media. Lujac Desautel's design, GLASS is built upon a SWATH (“Small Water-plane Area Twin Hull) platform specifically requested by a world renown composer and his family. GLASS is the re-examination of the traditional yacht typology which is typically defined by its longitudinal linearity, creating much longer and sleek sculptural forms.
An homage to the skyscraper and a reflective canvas to the sea; GLASS is organized vertically by three cubic volumes. GLASS becomes a nuance of the conventional yacht, leveraging the swath hulls unusually large beam width by literally stacking each floor like Lego blocks. Effectively, each floor becomes entirely dedicated to maximizing the amount of living space for guest and crew on board. Quite possibly the marriage of a social and environmentally perfect anomaly of nautical architecture.
