Entry Description

The concept of this boat started in 2018 with the aim to propose a personal declination of a classic American yacht: the Fisherman. Lately, this architecture was modified erasing the front windscreen of the main deck. A transformation obtained making “blind” the glass surfaces. Now, I supposed that layout is not so adapt in EU seas. So, I propose a reconfiguration of this detail, coming back to the previous architecture. Recovering the glass in the windscreen is possible increase the day light in the main deck, reintroducing the past inner pilot consolle, more comfortable to EU customers.
