Last week we exhibited at the first London Yacht Jet & Prestige Car Show, held at Old Billingsgate and St Katherine’s Dock right in the heart of the city. All of the Tony Castro Superyacht Design Team were in attendance at some stage during the show along with Tony.
We unveiled our new 62 meter sailing Superyacht design at the show and were thrilled with the feedback we received, with many people from the Superyacht design industry and media commenting on its stunning features.
Commenting on the design in an interview at the show with the Superyacht Times Gemma Fottles Tony said “The 62 meter was a project that started in conversation with the owner of Sunrise Shipyards. We have talked about sailing yachts for many years because that is what he likes. We decided to develop a boat that was under the limit of the 500 GRT, which is kind of a sweet spot between the rules that are manageable, and the rules that become much more onerous, difficult to apply and expensive. So we developed the biggest possible boat within that geometric space.”
Overall it was a fabulous event with a wide variety of attendees from across the Superyacht Industry, and with many extraordinary exhibits to take in, not only Superyachts but luxury lifestyle and some achingly beautiful cars! We are looking forward to next year!
