SILVER OCEAN

TEAM FOR DESIGN – ENRICO GOBBI

‘We designed Silver Ocean to have a sleek, pure line with dynamic elements, so it appears to be in motion, even when still; we drew inspiration from aviation and automotive design, as well as fluid natural elements. It has an elusive look, with the over hangs in particular enhancing this perception. The profile features three character lines that emerged from our first concept sketches and which became ‘slits’ of light that characterize Silver Ocean at anchor.”

“On Silver Ocean, there is an emphasis on external spaces and the large aft decks have wide visibility, free from obstruction by structural elements. The main deck’s pool features a glass bulwark to provide a clear view of the panorama from inside, so it feels like swimming in the sea. The beach club has three parts: a panoramic jacuzzi area, a central lounge and a gym. The owner’s suite has a private terrace with pool and fluid stairway leading to the helipad on the bow.”

“I have a vision that we must design the beautiful. Even if this is a personal and subjective concept, for me what’s at the heart of a beautiful, winning design are the fundamental proportions, which are instantly recognizable. So our first considerations for a yacht design are not details, nor layouts, but the proportions, the volume, the idea. We could never create a beautiful yacht if this embryonic phase doesn’t begin from our heart and follow our mood.”

“At Team For Design – Enrico Gobbi, what inspires us most are the elegant yet powerful shapes and details that we find in nature, landscapes and wildlife, like the sinuosity of a bird, the fluidity of its body shape and the power of its wingspan. The aerodynamics and timeless aesthetics of aircraft inspire my creativity, and I am continuously inspired by automotive design and architecture.”

“To me, it is essential we are inspired day after day for the duration of a project, from the first pen stroke on paper right up to the launch, never being afraid to take on any challenges that arise to achieve our primary goal: to create a timeless, beautiful and functional yacht.”
