Project Telex is ‘designed for families and adventurers’

The 65-metre Project Telex superyacht design draws on naval inspiration to envision a luxury yacht that will appeal to both families and adventurers, according to its British designer Bannenburg and Rowell (B&R).

“Freely inspired by assertive military forms, and seeking a well-proportioned silhouette, we have taken an honest and unpretentious approach to the exterior design,” said the company in a statement.

While appealing to families, the Project Telex design could also be adapted to the harshest climates and fitted with various utility options.

B&R’s creative director Simon Rowell told Superyacht Investor that the vessel would accommodate hybrid propulsion systems. “With regards to engines and range, our concept design is not limited to a specific propulsion package,” said Rowell.

“We work with all major European yacht builders to ensure an owner’s personal technical requirements are achieved. Cruising speed of 15 knots would be a reasonable assumption, based on conventional diesel/electric propulsion but our bespoke yacht design allows for various engineering solutions.”

Rowell said the design was inspired by four themes: adventure, active lifestyle, power and proportion. The superyacht will be able to accommodate up to 14 guests in seven staterooms and is operated by a crew of 14.

Simon Rowell told: “We do believe in highlighting the unique possibilities of life in the water. For some this may be a very traditional day cruiser with a mahogany interior that seldom finds the open ocean. But our mission with the Telex Project is to open people’s mind to the further possibilities of yachting, and the freedom that can be achieved.”
