I remember seeing the designs for BOLD a few years ago and being taken aback by her almost brutalist styling. Up close and personal, she’s much softer than she seems, but still packs all

the passage-making punch promised by those no-nonsense lines. In fact, while still extreme, her styling seems to fit right in with a modern crop of superyachts that really push the design envelope. Just look at the latest Excellence, whose owner, Herb Chambers, is interviewed in this issue. Could this spell the end of the wedding cake look? Not likely, but it’s great to see boat owners being braver in their design choices. These decisions are often enabled by technological advances, especially, in recent years, in glass. The huge areas of structural glazing on board Excellence transform its interior, while on BOLD an incredible winter garden has been created by wraparound glazing that can be removed entirely to create a true inside/outside space – the holy grail for modern superyacht design. Take a look at this space, and see much more of BOLD.
