    Young Designer 2024

    Project HYPE-R caters to a young, dynamic, and digitally-native owner. Each onboard space has a unique design, offering flexibility and multifunctionality and the transition between entertainment and relaxation is seamless. A key highlight aboard HYPE-R is the transformable beach club that can be used as an al fresco cinema, a discotheque, or a tranquil spot by the water's edge. The exterior design mirrors the yacht's advanced technology, exuding sophistication and style with sleek lines and innovative features. The upper deck features a sunset lounge with romantic arches, providing enchanting vistas for guests to unwind and enjoy breathtaking views as the sun sets over the horizon. The sundeck, reserved for the owner, offers a private study and living area, creating a secluded retreat amidst the beauty of the open sea. Every detail of HYPE-R has been meticulously crafted to meet the modern, tech-savvy clientele's discerning tastes, blending style and functionality. From its state-of-the-art entertainment systems to its environmentally-conscious design, HYPE-R sets a new standard for innovation. (Davide Benaglia)
