Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee unveil spectacular superyacht Star

Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee have presented project STAR. Igor Lobanov, Yacht Designer, tells how the project came about: “The initial idea of the Star belongs to Alex Malybaev from FIRMA branding agency. Alex and I exchanged some thoughts about yachting and came to the conclusion that to those outside the marine industry, all yachts look the same: It seems that modern architecture, product design and car design have no influence on yachts. Malybaev penned an idea “on a napkin” and asked me if a yacht could be like that. I looked at the sketch and set to work. The idea was so great that I wanted to prove it could become a yacht.”
