“It was important for the exterior to use simple lines together with dramatic angles and curves, as I believe that simplicity is an important factor in making a design elegant and clean. Using the powerful image of an arrow as my inspiration. I tried to create an aerodynamic exterior that would give the yacht a distinctive look, while also improving efficiency.”
