With catamarans exploding in popularity around the world, it is probably fitting that Italian-based A'Award and Competitions, which include a wide range of products, have announced a sailing catamaran as the winner of their latest Silver A'Design Award in the Yacht and Marine Design category.

The winning design was that of the 27m Wave Catamaran by marine architects Roberta Visintin and Cristiana Foytik.

The judging was carried out by the transnational judging committee of the A' Design Awards & Competitions among a great number of projects.

More on Wave Catamaran
Roberta Visintin, the creative mind behind the winning work Wave Catamaran says 'Thinking about the sea as a world in a continuous movement, we took the 'wave' as a symbol of it. Starting from this idea we modelled the lines of the hulls which seem to break themselves to bow.

'The second element at the base of the project idea is the concept of the living space that we wanted to draw in a sort of continuity between interiors and exteriors.

'Through the big glass windows we get an almost 360 degree view, which allows a visual continuity with outside. Not only that, but because of the large glass doors life inside is projected in the outdoor spaces.'

The project was carried out in the city of Monfalcone, near Trieste. The exterior of the hulls and superstructure is designed in bronze colour fibreglass to propose a new chromatic boat line. The interior walls are coated with civil white plaster properly treated, while some elements, as the ceiling of the shipowner's cabin and the headboard of the bed, are decorated with leather. The floors are wooden (teak for the external spaces, wengé for the interiors), sails are in carbon fibre.
