MYD talent stories 

Another success for a student of the Master in Yacht Design of Politecnico di Milano.

Thibaud Le Merdy, already ranked third in the Yacht Design Talent Award 2016 competition, won the Young Designer of the Year Award 2017, in collaboration with Oceanco. Here are some photos of his project, Comète:
The winners were announced during the 2017 ShowBoats Design Awards, taking place in Kitzbühel, Austria, from 5th to 7th February 2017. Speaking at the awards ceremony, Le Merdy said: “To win the Young Designer of the Year, the feeling is insane, I am very proud of my project and I am very, very happy about this.” 
This year's task required all entrants to create an 80 metre concept and two tenders - one for general use and one to serve as a limousine. The judging panel revealed that picking the winners was particularly difficult, adding: "This year’s entries were of an extremely high standard. All displayed excellent design talent as well as a broad understanding of superyachts."
