A new 100ft/30m carbon sloop concept , Egoist, has been developed by the Philippe Briand Studio specifically to indulge the owner who wants to simplify their experience on board by having the exclusive use of their yacht.
A focus on the owner At a time when many yachts are designed to equally satisfy a variety of different programmes – from the charter guest to the potential buyer – the artistic direction can become compromised to the extent that the originality of the design is diluted. The outcome: the essence of why the yacht is being built is in danger of getting lost. Egoist is the antidote to this; she has been designed purely to satisfy the needs and enjoyment of the owner .
S/Y Egoist embodies a fresh take on a classic Eastern Seaboard sailing yacht , but can also be used to race with an expert, though reduced, crew . The yacht has a very roomy interior salon with a superb master cabin and comfortable accommodation for two crew members . She is the ideal day sailor or a cruising yacht for an owner who wants to enjoy the sailing experience of a superyacht without the need for numerous crew . Your yacht, your programme Calling on his extensive yacht racing background, Philippe Briand developed the naval architecture of Egoist to be fast and very responsive . The design uses the timeless lines of a classic sailing yacht, for which the studio is famed, but with a contemporary twist. As with all of Philippe’ s designs, the thinking behind this project is one of a expert sailor with actual racing competence and experience. Egoist has been conceived as fully customizable, as Philippe elaborates, to “be a pure pleasure for the owner, not bowing to the demands or tastes of anyone else. The concept of Egoist is to become an owner’s self-indulgent fantasy; it should be the yacht that they have always dreamed of owning. ”
