The top 100

Yachts International - - Sternlines - 2007 2001 1999

riand’s de­signs do not yet fig­ure in the Top 100, but they may well soon. Hav­ing started out in the world of off­shore rac­ers, Briand has di­ver­si­fied into su­pery­acht de­sign and brought a sailor’s eye to both his sail and power projects. The Vitru­vius mo­to­ry­acht se­ries, for ex­am­ple, has cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of the mar­ket and been widely em­u­lated. The largest to date is 239-foot (73-me­ter)

the diesel-elec­tric Perini Navi Group flag­ship built for Amer­i­can own­ers Bob and Chris­tine Stiller.

The French de­signer has a num­ber of projects re­port­edly in the pipe­line, in­clud­ing a 345-foot (105-me­ter) Vitru­vius with Oceanco, a 262-foot (80-me­ter) Vitru­vius to be built at Turquoise Yachts, a 197-foot (60-me­ter) Vitru­vius with Fead­ship and a 100-foot (30.5-me­ter) sail­ing yacht in the Wal­lyCento class. He is also in dis­cus­sion with Pen­den­nis in the United King­dom for a 164-foot (50-me­ter) project that he de­scribes as “a new kind of mo­to­ry­acht that will be as ver­sa­tile as a Swiss penknife.”

Briand also re­cently col­lab­o­rated on the 230foot (70-me­ter) ketch launched by Perini Navi for Bill Duker, an­other Amer­i­can owner. —J.R.
