Philippe Briand: Sustainability First

philippe briand sustainability message

In an exclusive interview with Top Yacht Design, Philippe talks in depth about sustainable yacht design, reducing fuel consumption and a whole new philosophy.

In the interview Philippe Briand talks about sustainability being a duty rather than a choice, his work with Water Revolution and his motivation behind his three latest concepts. He feels that reaching the “green turning point” will be driven not just by the urgent need to reduce fossil fuel emissions by transitioning to renewables but also the imperative to include the superyacht world in a virtuous circle. The interview is featured in Top Yacht Design this month, please see the extracts below.

We want to work alongside ship owners to create the perfect renewable energy machine, using the power of wind, water and sun to manage the yacht, and offer an exceptional experience both of onboard peace and exploration of the sea.

quote about sustainable yacht design

“Instead of using competition between owners as a motivator, environmental sustainability will become the reason to push the boundaries of technology and efficiency in superyachting. This is something we are very passionate about.”
