Judges’ commendation for MY Scout at Design and Innovation Awards
3 February 2020
As the largest superyacht we have built to date, the 63,7 metre Scout is a source of considerable pride to everyone involved in the Hakvoort yard.
Her owners too are delighted with their yacht, and so it seems are the industry experts behind the Boat International Design and Innovation Awards 2020.
Scout was nominated as finalist for the categories:
- Outstanding Exterior Motor Yacht – 50m and Above
- Best Motor Yacht Interior Design – above 500GT
- Best Naval Architecture Displacement Motor Yachts
- Outstanding Lifestyle Feature.
At the Superyacht Design Festival held on February 2nd in Italy Scout received the judges’ commendation for her Holistic Design.
The judges commented as follows: “However, it was the holistic design of 63.7m Scout that eventually edged out the other contenders.
Scout, designed inside and out by H2 Yacht Design, is perfectly attuned to her owner’s vision of a home away from home with a unique, light-hearted Jules Verne- inspired theme, and a consistent style and colour scheme. Because this is a home rather than a temporary holiday escape, the yacht must keep its occupants entertained for months on end and make provisions for all members of the household, which includes two dogs.
H2 did a superb job of blending the owner’s vision and the yacht’s long-range cruising purpose within a consistent yet highly entertaining shippy platform that surprises at every turn. One key requirement from the owners was for a large, totally open sundeck, with lift access and a dayhead. H2 founder Jonny Horsfield cleverly incorporated the two features into the arch to give the owners exactly what they wanted.”
