It is any designer’s dream to have complete control over every aspect of their brainchild. Carl Esch of Castlemain Yachts has made that dream a reality. We spoke with Carl to learn more about the intriguing ‘design consultancy’ he has built off the back of 35 years’ experience in the yachting industry, culminating in Castlemain's most recent, largest and 'sexiest' project yet; the formidable 110m Century X.

Fotiadis Design, Century X is truly a force to be reckoned with.

Italian designer Tomasso Spadolini has shared his design insight from working for an experienced owner on CdM’s flagship launch from earlier this year, the 42m explorer yacht Crowbridge. Crowbridge is representative of the most contemporary echelon of the explorer trend - a hardy expedition vessel wrapped in luxurious detailing and finish. There is no doubt, Spadolini tells, that the owner’s yachting experience and input throughout the design process made for an extremely well-equipped superyacht.
