College Student Wins At ShowBoats Design Awards

On June 21, 2013 at the ShowBoats Design Awards, the highly distinguished “Young Designer of the Year Award” went to architectural design student Stefano Inglese. The finalists were judged by an illustrious group of industry professionals and yacht owners. Inglese won for his Project “Granturismo”. Oceanco has teamed up with the ShowBoats Design Awards by sponsoring the highly distinguished “Young Designer of the Year Award.”

The design of the yacht was inspired by the silhouette of the Granturismo sports car.

“The idea was to deliver the same feelings one has when traveling en plain air in a sports car,” Inglese said.

The design met with the hypothetical owner’s love of ‘masculine and stylishly edgy’ design and the interior layout satisfied the ‘client’s’ many demands.

“The boat is made to communicate to the non-rational side of the human soul… placing human emotions and the joy of life in first place,” Inglese said.
