5 Yacht Design Innovations Coming to a Dock Near You
In Retrospect: Maybe it's simply nostalgia, or maybe it's a deeper yearning for something familiar, comforting and reassuring, but old is new again. Perini Navi resurrected the Picchiotti brand for its retro-styled Vitruvius motoryacht, Codecasa has released renderings of a new Vintage series, and Dutch sailyacht builders such as Royal Huisman and Vitters are busy with windjammers of every size and description. The Royal Huisman project will be 283 feet. Turkish yards, from Cyrus to Vicem, are building classic motoryachts, and Burger Boats will launch the fantail motoryacht Sycara(above) this summer into the waters of Lake Michigan. The retro movement is not just on the superyacht scale, either. Genmar's WindsorCraft offers a number of models in the under-50-foot category, and the Trumpy 63 Showtime that has graced these pages is the model for a new yacht series to be built under the Trumpy name by Vicem.
