6. 3D printed yachts will become a reality
If you want to find out the future trends in the yachting industry you should continue reading the article. In the article below the most influential insiders in this business predict the key looks for yachts.
Gregory C Marshall, the famous Canadian designer, said that the future of yachting must consist of new, advanced technology.
’’We are deep into the possibility that we could print an entire yacht using 3D additive printing. Simply put, this technology will disrupt virtually every aspect of the industry. It is a lot closer than you think- I`d say 2050- and we will see large component parts before that,’’ he explained.
5. Young owners will drive change
Co-founder of brokerage firm Y.CO, Charlie Birkett, thinks that young owners of the yachts will change industry approach.
’’Young Europeans and Americans are driving market change today. They have different pastimes to their parents. Even the super- wealthy are living simpler lives, and tech is woven into everything,’’ Birkett said.
4. Multihulls will become the norm
The multihulls are the oldest vessels in the yacht production but you also have trimarans and catamarans in the superyacht industry.
’’Think about the first jet aircraft. When it was compared to the propeller plane, people said it was noisy, that it consumed too much fuel, but today it is the standard. In the future, the standard will be multihull because it is more efficient. Tomorrow`s customer is going to enjoy yachting in a much more autonomous way. Today, each time we have a discussion with an owner, we talk about hybrid propulsion, how to have an eco-friendly boat and less environmental impact, ’said about this matter, Jean-Jacques Coste, French naval architect.
3. Yachts will need to transform
Thierry Gaugain, a French designer, thinks that future in yachting business is in the yachts with different functions because yacht owners want to stay invisible in the public but also with a desire to show off with their magnificent boat.
’’I believe future yachts will be influenced by the eternal need for luxury, increasing concerns over safety and security, the merging of social life and business competition and astonishing new expressions of luxury made possible by technology, he said.’’
’’But owners’ contradictions- showing off for prestige versus the need or desire to be invisible- must be resolved. I believe the answer is the birth of luxurious yachts able to perform successive metamorphoses. I am working on this solution. “
2. The coat of glass integration will come down
The trend of large expanses of glazing is still very popular.
“Large panels of glass are expensive, however, as they are becoming more common in yacht building, I believe the costs for class approval will come down. It is well worth the additional costs as glass transforms spaces and connects the interior to the outside environment, “ explained Pascale Reymond, Reymond Langton Design.
1.Remote exploration will lead to bigger tenders
Neville Crichton is serial yacht owner, and one of the men who discover the world with his stunning boats.
“I believe future owners will use their yachts for more remote exploration and to meet those demands boats will carry considerably more toys, as shown on the latest explorer yachts. Personally, I love the easy and quick access to the water, as this is our playground. Therefore, a good/sized superyacht beach club and stern platform are essential. My next yacht will be a powerboat around the 500GT size with tenders that are as large as it will be possible to accommodate. “
