Inspired by the future, the stunning MY "Roswell" is today officially launched to the world, and whose conceptualisation started with the idea of creating an iconic and worldwide recognisable yacht.Read More
Coined l'enfant terrible in the super yacht industry for his somewhat controversial and daring designs, it is time to delve into the mind of Alexander McDiarmid, whose creativity is constantly at the forefront to outdo the norm and whose 3 ½ year old son is his biggest critic. Is it a case of the good, the bad and the ugly, or simply genius? We let you decide.Read More
Built on a strong belief in good proportion and harmonious design, Eduard Gray has built up a design studio based in Sweden that has captured the imaginations of automotive and marine enthusiasts from around the world.
As an award winning international design studio the focus is strongly engrained on innovative and highly characteristic industrial design. The studio love good ideas and have a knack in packaging them into striking designs that balance proportion, function and fluidity.
Amidst Gray Design's mind blowing design projects is one in particular that stands out and is worthy of attention. The Fairway super yacht. Pushing boundaries with making the big blue the new green, the project was born out of the rising interest in Asia for yachts that are designed for being a meeting and recreational place rather than just a seagoing vessel.
Incorporating the wonderful sport of golf into this design ensures that the owners and users can get the most out of their time on the yacht. The large open areas of the deck allow plenty of space to practice your short game and the spacious tee area on top of the yacht allow for the best drives in the world.
Who better to call on to maximise on this space is no-one other than PGA Member and trainer to the VIPs, Francis Jacquemin of Golf & Yacht. Swinging biodegradable golf balls off your luxury super yacht is most certainly an art and no-one does it better than the master himself, who is not unfamiliar with the most discerning clients and super yacht owners worldwide.
Focusing on the luxury market has allowed Gray Design to develop designs that are more outrageous and exclusive because the design has to appeal to a much smaller clientele than with any other mass productions . The team behind the masterpieces believe in the eternal beauty of good proportions and the energy that comes from exciting curves and surfaces.
The right environment is essential for nuturing an idea into a finished product, and these Swedes sure have got their priorities right and are worthy of our attention.

At the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oceanco revealed its latest design, the 102m Project Spectrum. Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, President/CEO of Show Management, performed the honors of unveiling the spectacular new scale model.
Aptly named, Spectrum was conceived by Nauta Design and Oceanco to encompass a broad range of possibilities, both in terms of her propulsion system and her living spaces. Designer Mario Pedol of Nauta was on hand at the premiere of the yacht concept to discuss what Spectrum is all about.
Extensive investment in hull form research and development provides a refined hull shape which, when coupled with the hybrid propulsion system enables Spectrum to cruise in a variety of efficient modes. She maintains a sleek, streamlined profile, which allows lower resistance through the water.
Her layout over five decks provides a gamut of flexibility. There is a close relationship to the sea throughout the yacht, with a seamless flow from outdoor deck spaces to the interior. Light was a very important aspect in creating Spectrum, with large windows and extensive balconies all helping bring the outside atmosphere into the interior.
The lower deck includes a wellness suite with sauna, steam room, beauty treatment area and massage rooms, with two terraces opening symmetrically port and starboard from the massage room and gym areas.
The upper deck is the owners’ deck with a panoramic-view forward from the owners’ suite and direct access to a private spa pool and sitting area. The forward deck is equipped with a touch- and- go helicopter-landing pad. Aft is an additional salon and bar area, which can form part of the owner’s private area or be opened to the other guests onboard. The secluded owner’s deck aft is ideal for alfresco dining.
The bridge deck houses the command center with a large helm area, two wing stations and a Portuguese bridge. The central lift serves all five decks. A further guest lounge is located aft on the bridge deck, with a 3m X 3m Jacuzzi on the aft deck.
Spectrum is LY3 compliant offering variety, flexibility and continuity. As with a rainbow, Spectrum is like a band of colors produced by subtle variations of wave length. She is mercurial in how she offers so many possibilities.
