Jury voices of the Rossinavi Design Challenge

Jury member Antonio Vettese, Editor-in-Chief of Yacht Capital and editor at The Boat Show comments:

“Today, many owners want their ships to be ready to navigate even through ice, and this leads to complications. In the projects we have seen in the competition, some participants have gone into this territory with great knowledge, sometimes solving the problem well. Innovation does not always have to be something never seen before – sometimes innovation can be made by looking at the past and certain traditional solutions, because ‘tradition’ does not simply mean old and stale values, but elaborate values that millennia of navigation have proposed and brought to sea. “

Editor-in-Chief of Ocean Home Magazine, Bill Springer said:

“The quality (and quantity!) of the entries in the first ever Rossinavi Design Challenge shows just how talented and passionate the world’s super yachts designers are. The Rossinavi Design Challenge is more than just another design competition. It provides a glimpse of the future of superyacht design.”
