Marlene Ratajska’s Young Designer of the Year Award entry features clear sides to encourage guests to interact with the surrounding sea. The upper deck houses the owner’s suite and owner’s deck, both of which have the best views from the yacht thanks to the glass walls. Below, on the main deck, lies the dining area and teppanyaki grill aft, with two spas, a saloon and a beauty salon indoors. Forward is the outdoor dining and entertainment area with a cinema and a Jaccuzi nestled in the nose of the bow. Aft of the lower deck is a swim platform and beach club. The centre of the lower deck is reserved for crew, with two guest rooms, a gym and sauna forward.
“All the shapes around us give the spectrum of possibilities to create unique design,” explains Marlene Ratajska. “Zesa yacht connects exceptional styling with functionality and comfort in cruising.”
Marlene Ratajska is currently studying for a masters degree at the faculty of architecture and urban planning at Gdansk University of Technology. She has interned at naval architecture studio Pracownia Propocji, amongst other internships.
