FUTURE CLASSICS

FILMS

Today, the definition of a classic boat is much talked about, even debated, as we look back upon 200 years of yachting, while in the present we're recreating, merging and re-appropritating ideas and design in the 21st Century, sometimes in the spirit of tradition.

While yacht designers and naval architects have naturally developed hull-forms, underwater profiles and have utilised modern, light-weight materials and created outstandingly fast yachts, there remain a few of us who crave the sweet sheer lines of the late 19th and early 20th Century. 'Future classics' is playlist of videos that pays attention to newly built yacht designs that have used modern technology and materials and taken inspiration from classic lines - plumb bows and counter sterns.
